(Hürriyet Newspaper, 13 January 2011)
Nurettin Delen (45), riding on his motorcycle in Kepez district
of Antalya province, crashed into a minibus. Passers-by assured
Delen that help was on the way but Delen began to cry, moaning
'I just took out a line of credit. If I'm injured how can I pay it
back?' When Delen phoned his relatives he was in for another
shock - rather than asking about Delen's well-being, his opposite
party wanted to know whether the motorcycle had survived intact.
An infuriated Delen screamed into the phone 'I'm at death's door
and you're asking about the motorcycle?!' and then hung up.
