Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

Is it any wonder one million Poles have left for the UK and Ireland

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

Can someone translate, please?

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

They are looking for a man, woman or retired person to collect slugs.

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

I read this as snails, but is a slug a snail without a shell? It made me think of escargots for export to france and I assume they want a shell.

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

Back in 1974 there was a large contingent of French theologians visiting the Seminary in Przemysl. The program was cancelled one day when the visitors strolling the gardens noted the quality of the local snails, and the size, and the quantity. Praise God the quantity! Baskets upon baskets and numerous pails were filled; the kitchens requisitioned; black market butter obtained, and the feast commenced. The rector later admitted some remorse at all the ungenerous thoughts he had had as to the inability of the gardeners in ridding the garden of the pests.

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

What is the polish word for slug?

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

I'm not sure. It may be the same word as for snail. But a vision of a snail with shell pops into my head when slimak is used. They have all sorts of regional variations in Poland anyway.

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

Slimak is the word for both. They export them to France & also use them to feed farmed carp!

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

I wonder if they pay by the hour or by the snail ?

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

I know Poles are fond of picking berries and mushrooms up in the wild to eat. But are snails ever eaten in Poland?

Re: Interesting Job Vacancy

Only in French restaurants
