I was finally discovered!
There were many machines in the factory owned by the Asoma company. The craftsmen who worked daily with these machines did not have time to do maintenance, and therefore, neglected machines frequently caused breakdowns and decreased efficiency. We were looking for technical staff who would only perform technical maintenance of the machines, repair them when necessary, train the masters and solve the problems that arise during production in a short time. 45 people had applied for the job posting, but only 7 of them would be interviewed.
Mehmet Kurnaz had a meeting with the first 6 technical staff candidates; there was no person among them. Some yawned in front of him, looked at one of them at a phone, some avoided eye contact. He even fired someone; He said that he wanted to go to the bathroom two minutes after entering, but 15 minutes after he came from here, he said he wanted to go to the bathroom again. Common feature of all of them; They were people with insecurity and no knowledge of what they wanted. He could not trust the machines of the whole company to such indifferent, lethargic people. It was the last island. Mehmet Kurnaz was delighted when the last candidate entered; It was obvious from his walk and his view of the environment that he was very energetic. He squeezed his hand in such a way that "this young man can tear off what he's holding!" he thought. When the meeting session was over, it was time to study.
-Aykut Bey, you graduated from the vocational high school machinery department. Why didn't you go to university?
-Mehmet, actually my teachers at school came to my house and said to me: "read!" they begged too much, but I didn't want it. “Son, you are a genius, you must definitely read it, let the country and nation benefit from your talent! “They did not kneel down and beg. I was stubborn, I did not read it!
Mr. Mehmet was very happy with the answer he received. After 6 scabies candidates, he was sure he would have a very nice meeting with someone funny.
-I even received offers from a few technical universities. For example, a university in Istanbul begged a lot to be able to give 2 thousand TL scholarship and study.
-So, have there been offers from universities abroad?
- Wouldn't it be? A professor from America sent the secretary of the Ankara embassy home. “Look, my daughter, don't beg in vain, I have no job there! I said.
-What was that professor's name, remember?
-I forgot it because I didn't care. Anyway, I instantly torn away all the invitations I received.
- Mr. Aykut, why did you push away so many offers? There are millions of people in America dying to study, right?
-This country needs pure lads, sir. How could I leave my beautiful homeland and go to the good hands? I almost forgot, the American secretary told me: "If you don't agree to study in America, marry me, I've never seen a handsome person like you before!" Doesn't he cry sobbingly, huh! Ha! Ha!.
Mehmet Kurnaz turned to his secretary, Mrs. Şaziye, and said: “Do you see the nobility of this young man? He did not care about both reading and marriage proposals from America! " said.
-Mehmet, I was so emotional that I find it hard not to cry. Let me go to the next office, I can't take it any longer!
