I'm important and you're not.
In Etiler, Istanbul, Samet S. (28) works as a salesperson at a glassware
shop in a shopping center. Samet parked his motorcycle in the shopping
center's parking lot but when he left work he found his motorcyle
overturned and damaged. Video images showed that the person who
had hit Samet's motorcycle was singer Ayşegül Aldinç.
Aldinç reluctantly came to the police station with her mother and
scolded Samet, saying "Have you done your military service?! We had
to come all the way down here because of you! Aren't you ashamed of
stealing our time like this?!" Aldinç's mother added "I pray and every
day I'll call a curse down upon you!"
Claiming that he had not been compensated for the damage to his bike
and that he had been humiliated by Aldinç and her mother, Samet filed
a suit against them asking for 500 TL in psychological damages and
830 TL in physical damages. Samet stated that he had been humiliated
by the singer's attitude and words, making him feel that he was a
worthless person, undeserving of attention.
