A man in the central Anatolian province of Konya decided to put his new car on sale, arguing that his father was driving it more.
Programmer Emre Şen said even though his father had a car, he liked his one more. "My father showed excessive interest in my car from day one. Sometimes in the morning I wake up and see my car missing. At least, he leaves his own car, a minivan, behind. Once you have a father like mine, you cannot drive your own car." He said he would sell it and buy a motorcycle, hoping the missing two wheels would dissuade his father from driving his vehicle.
"I told my elder sister that I was selling my car. When she heard why, she told me I should have put my father on sale instead."
The ad for the car begins with the headline, "Either give me a TL-21,000-loan or buy it for TL 23,000" and proceeds to explain why it's on sale.
"I first would like to wish everyone happy shopping. Below, are the reasons why I'm selling my car.
1. My father the only one happy with the car. I bought it for myself but get no chance to drive it. Those who ride it say it is very comfortable.
2. I fear my father is trying to get a second wife. The other day, when he told me to get it cleaned because he was going somewhere, I found woman's hair. I think she might be blonde.
3. He is in love with the car's sunroof and air-conditioning. He will spend the night in it if he could.
4. The other day, people were posting get-well soon messages on his Facebook page. He had written: "How is it possible to catch cold in the middle of summer," before posting: "Just hanging in the car."
Just the other day, when I looked at my declaration of property, I remembered I owned a car. In our family, I am the only one who has a motorcycle license. I want to sell it to buy a motorcycle."
