Idiot at Gocek Market

Really fed up with a stupid woman at the market in Gocek. We went to a different pancake ( sorry can't spell the authentic word) stall than usual for our lunch and got charged 25tl for 4 pancakes, a water and a cay! When I complained she gave me three back I know the pancakes are 4 tl each so she still diddled me out of 4 so why take the mickey. All that happens is we don't go back.

Re: Idiot at Gocek Market

But if she's sat there all day doing that to every other customer, she does not really need you to go back, there's always more to diddle.

Re: Idiot at Gocek Market

Why did you accept to pay it if you knew it wasn't the right price? And doesn't the Zabita walk around your market?

Are you saying the pancakes were 4TL each at the new stall or at the stall you used before?

Sorry if it sounds offish, but I still can't understand anyone not checking the prices first, then you are not in for any surprises and can also argue to your hearts content when they try to rip you off.

Re: Idiot at Gocek Market

There's no menu at the stalls and I had no reason to believe I would pay anything other than the proper price. With little Turkish in the bank other than greetings and numbers it was only when I went to pay and got asked for 25 I raised a brow. A guy at a DVD stall we used told me the prices and that's when I got cross. As for smaller money I had 5 10 and 20 what would have helped? I just know she's stupid because next time I'll vote with my feet

And now you won't be an Idiot and pay those inflated prices on the Market for a Gozleme again will you.

Re: Idiot at Gocek Market

In the grand scheme of things, 3 or 4 lira for pancakes and drinks is not something to get the blood pressure raised for surely?

Unfortunately you fell foul of the charge whatever they can get away with sting.
One which obviously I hope will not happen again.
But the message to everyone is also plain to see which is don't take for granted that prices will be the same from one stall to the next even for something as small as a pancake.
