Today I woke up in the rain but that wasn’t going to stop me,at least not today. I needed to post these documents so I hit the road.
I get to the Uni’s print and photocopy place and it’s closed. My luck! I then decide to wait a few minutes for this guy. He doesn’t show,I decide to try get my documents printed outta Uni. So I step into the rain,well compared to the normal Antalya rain this is but a drizzle.
Luckily the place is open. I get in and find this guy in a ponytail held back, a shirt, a pair of shorts and boots. Yes I noticed all this because I stopped to look at him as he was doing my documents. This isn’t the reason ‘printman’ makes the blog though. It’s because he was extremely kind to me. The guy in Uni knows too well to ignore you and to talk about you while standing there. I assume he still thinks my Turkish sucks; well he’s mostly right but I get him alright!
‘Printman’. He was so patient with me, asking to make sure everything was done to my liking. He even offered me a paperbag for my documents seeing that it was raining. And no he didn’t ask me ‘wearrryufrom?’ For a moment I felt like I was back in KE, a human among humans.
I wished him well, gave him my best smile and walked out with a spring to the post office to post my documents. Confident that these documents carry with them the goodness of ‘printman’ and they’ll gift me a surprise soon.
Be kind to a stranger today kind souls.
