” MY TEACHER LEFT ME IN CLASS, BECAUSE OF THE TIE”

Taşlıçukur noted that he came to Istanbul in 1969 after graduating from primary school in his hometown Ordu and stayed with his uncle. “I had an aunt, she was a mother to me. She passed away 5-6 months ago due to coronavirus. She used to bathe her children and bathe me in the same basin under the conditions of that time.

Even though I was a hardworking student when I was in the middle sophomore year, my Science teacher dropped me off because of the tie. I wasn’t wearing a tie. ‘Sir, please don’t leave me in the classroom. From now on I will wear it all the time.’ said. He left though. I went to the course, I succeeded in the exam. From that day to this day, the suit is continuous.” he said.

”SELLING WATER WITH SUIT ATTRACTS A LOT OF ATTENTION”

Stating that he worked as a waiter on coal-fired cruise ships after graduating from secondary school, and then heard that he was looking for a cleaning worker to work in the municipality, he applied. Taşlıçukur continued as follows:

“I started working as a cleaning worker in the municipality. I’m glad I did. There were times when we couldn’t get a salary for 3-4 months, but we still persevered. I worked at İSTAÇ for the last 3.5 years and retired from there. I retired, came home, ‘whatever. shall I?’ I thought. I was writing a book, I lost it when I moved in. Now I’m trying to get it together.

After I retired, I got bored, I thought I’d sell water where I clean. I started selling water in the Bosphorus accession. I have been selling water there for 4 years. Selling water with a suit attracts a lot of attention.

Even if citizens won’t take it when they see it from 50 meters, they do. I have become the tradesman of the place now. He knows 90 percent. The man has no money, I say, ‘Go on’. The man goes to Van; He says, ‘I had a water debt, here you go’.

I’ll be there at 7 am. I work according to the traffic situation. When the traffic is over, our job is over. I love dialogue with people. This job also makes me happy.”

FEEDING THE NEIGHBORHOOD CAT AT 06.30 IN THE MORNING

Stating that he got up at 06.30 in the morning and fed the cats in the neighborhood and then went to Beylerbeyi from Anadolu Hisarı by the 06.40 bus, Taşlıçukur stated that his life was spent feeding the cats and birds he was accustomed to, and communicating with people.

Taşlıçukur said that he sometimes gets reactions while selling water. “Traffic jams. I give the signal. Some people laugh and some react. These are the material of the book I’m writing. The dialogue there is 5 pages of material for me.

The title of the book will be “My Village Crazy”. The genre will be adventure. If I find a sponsor, I will print it. The book tells about my experiences. I have read many books in my time. While reading Russian writers, Yaşar Kemal’s novels on the landlord system and İnce Memed’s films, I found myself wanting to write. It’s a childhood dream.” he said.

Taşlıçukur said that he also wrote poetry. “I also wrote poetry to my wife. I wanted her alone. We’ve been married for 34 years. I still write poems to her.” said.

”I BUTTON MY BUTTONS SIDE OF MY CUSTOMER”

Stating that he rested on Saturdays and Sundays, Taşlıçukur said:

“I manage, thank God. I don’t miss my suit. There is a credit card, there are installments. I feel empty when I go out there without dressing like that. It will be the charm of the shopkeepers. You see, I have gloves and disinfectant with me. I rub it on my hands every 15 minutes because of the pandemic.

In my opinion, tradesmen should be smiling. He should be respectful. As a tradesman, I button up next to my customers. It’s giving more money. I buy food for dogs and street animals.

There is a child in the poor, I’m taking him to him. Working keeps you fit. What will I do if I don’t work? My advice to my peers is not to leave them alone. Let them move and find a pastime.”

“WE RESISTED AGAINST THE COUPLERS”

Thanks to this job, he also made friendships, for the convenience of taxi drivers. ‘Shall I give it broken?’ Ali Taşlıçukur said that he asked “It’s rare to pass without a salute. The bridge exit is familiar to me.” said.

Taşlıçukur stated that he was there during the night during the treacherous coup attempt on July 15, “A bullet hit the billboards at the exit to Altunizade on the opposite direction. It shattered the glass. I cut my knee. I crawled down from there, stayed by the taxi stand. We resisted the coup plotters in Beylerbeyi.

That night, the lady told me ‘where you work, there are soldiers, there is a revolution.’ said. I said, ‘What conflict? The revolution happened in the 80’s. What have I suffered, will it be now?’ said. There is no car, nothing, we walked with the locals. What went there? May God never let him live again.” he said.
