"you just haven't met the right people"

Sometimes I let my guard down and actually tell people I hate Serbia.  silly me.

They always look for some "reason", other than the obvious "it's a dirty, dysfunctional shit-hole, inhabited by proud primitives".

I've been here for some time.  I speak almost fluent Serbian.

Let's get this straight.  I hate Serbia because I DO understand it, not because I somehow don't.

  1. My sister recommended this blog to me. We're diaspora-former-Yugloavians.

    Thanks for the blog. You remind me why I don't like going back to the country I originate from.

    My fellow Serbians in the country where I live keep telling me how happy people are in Serbia compared to here. It only takes a bus ride and look in all those depressed faces or a 5-minute-conversation with a relative to prove them wrong.

    1. Thanks for your comment.

      There's no help for people who have painted themselves into a corner in their own heads.

  3. Hey D00T d00d

    i too learned that if someone is a serb (serbian born hungarians excempted from this rule) do not say 1 bad thing about their country, they might say yea its like that but they will backfire with something on why serbia is great - we've got novak djokovic!!! YAY!

    Well, same rules as with your blog: "If you don't like it get the f**k out!"

    1. I have no such rule.

      I prefer people who don't like it, in case you haven't noticed.

      Thanks for enjoying my blog :)
