my hubby is such a softie. walking past the Istanbul university we came across a square filled with pigeons.
while i thought the birds were horrible vectors of disease, my hubby was thoroughly amused.
while i ignored the lady with the birdseeds, he took a couple of handful of seeds from her and happily started feeding the birds while i clicked away on our camera.
when the feeding frenzy ended. the lady customarily asked him for some money. he looked at me and i shrugged thinking to myself, 'you got yourself into this one all on your own luv, you get yourself out of it yourself too'.
he fished out 2 turkish lira (about SGD 1.60).
she was not impressed. at this point i would have just walked away from her. i mean, come on? how much could bird seed cost.
but noooooo....my softie hubby...fished out his smallest note (seeing that he had run out of coins) and gaver her another 5 turkish lira.
and that is the story of how my hubby kena CON by this lady out of 7 turkish lira! Oits that's like a whole doner kebab, a drink plus a turkish tea to wrap up the meal gone in place of birdseeds ok!!!!
