Didem, a well known Turkish Author, an Armenian hater, and Genocide denier, but not a devout Muslim, walks into an Istanbul bar and is about to order a drink when he sees a guy close by with an Armenian Cross tattooed on his bare arm..
He doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that this guy is Armenian. So Didem shouts over to the bartender so everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for that guy over there,” pointing to the Armenian guy.
Soon after the drinks have been handed out, Didem notices that the Armenian guy is smiling, and calls to Didem and says, “Thank you.”
This infuriates Didem and in a loud voice, he once again orders drinks for everyone except the Armenian guy.
But as before, this does not seem to worry the Armenian guy who continues to smile, and again says, “Thank you.”
So Didem says to the bartender, “What’s the matter with that guy over there? I’ve ordered two rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar except him, and all he does is smile and thank me. Is something wrong with him or something?”
“Not at all” replies the bartender, “he’s the owner.”
Thank you John for the story 🙂
