Czech attitudes about services in their homeland

Have you ever heard a Czech say, in frustration, “It just doesn’t work here like it does elsewhere,” then sigh in resignation and go on grumbling. Complaining about the way things work in the Czech Republic seems second-nature. Yet being proactive about finding a solution or looking at the problem from a different perspective seems less common. There are of course many Czechs with positive outlooks and out-of-the-box thinking, but the greater Czech population seems more attached to its pessimism than other European cultures I’ve encountered.
