  1. thanks ripley, yeah it would be terrible to lose her/anyone via suicide her father died two months ago..plus a turkish guy broke her heart, so thats the reason... she is better for now ... yeah, we are looking for a good affordable doctor to help her depression... thanks everyone for showing your support
  2. thanks for your wishes you guys, i forwarded them to her. Yeah, she needs help too much emotional baggage.. anyways... if anyone learns that odd term, lemme know
  3. Well yeah, they just took the passport number.. but that's it.. no questions were asked :S And the next day she was visited by a psychiatrist for like 10 minutes ... and yeah, the police took the phone number, address and info of her roommate. But nothing was said about whether she will have to go in for an assessment or something. And neither the police nor the hospital officials have contacted her roommate since that time... she didnt have a phone. So we assumed it was the end of the communications :PIs committing suicide a crime in Turkey? A Turkish speaking friend of ours said it was, but Im not sure... In US, in some states it is a crime.Please people, throw in whatever info you've got
  4. Hi, So 4 days ago a close friend tried to commit suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills found over the counter in Turkey. She fainted and was almost going to get into a coma before we took her to the hospital. She spent 3 days in the I.C.U. (admitted immediately)... Strange thing is that we were expecting a massive bill... but we had taken her to a government hospital (devlet hastanesi) which are much cheaper than the private hospitals but not free, of course... but the hospital didnt charge anything for 3 days in the I.C.U... how come? In the UK, it would have been 3000 pounds or more for the same services ...We asked the staff and at the reception why her whole treatment was free... and they kept saying a particular term...under which all treatments are free ... it was not "ACIL" or emergency.. because that much Turkish I know... Can someone point/say that term for me? It is strange because our friend isn't even Turkish... so what health programme is it in Turkey under which treatment of attempted suicide by foreigners is treated for free/by the Turkish Government?Im just very curious thanks everyone by the way, my friend is doing much better now.
  5. Buhuhu, I bought an Iphone in the US, jailbroke it and now I could use it anywhere in the world with any sim provider... except... in Turkey I have another handset registered in my name so cant register my Iphone. Unless I find someone to register it for me, I am doomed to buy a new handset - dont wanna lose my Iphone .. buhuhuhu (((My question, when I register my Iphone, would I have a problem (legal or otherwise) because it was jailbroken? The person /representative who will register my Iphone wont know that my Iphone was jailbroken, can he come to know this while registering it? Thanks people!!
  6. hehloh!I just went to register my iphone with avea.. and I was turned down because apparently I had another handset registered within the last 2 years But, there is one way I can still register my handset... good news for people in my situation The Avea and Turkcell representatives told me that if I find a Turkish national who has been abroad within the last one month, and if that person is willing to register my handset, they can register my phone in his/her name and wala! Done!So people dont be disappointed, just ask a Turkish friend who has been abroad recently to register your phone for you! One last note - the phone registration can happen in two ways - the first one allows your phone to work in Turkey with any SIM card (so you can switch SIM cards, for whatever reasons you wanna switch them)... the second one allows only 1 particular SIM card for one said handset, hence even if your handset is shown registered, you will be able to make it work with 1 SIM card you registered it with. Tough, eh?I have no idea why this ridiculousness? There is some new techno phone, new phone upgrades in the market every month, who keeps the same phone for 2 years now?Can someone please explain the logic behind this block/register thing? Thanks
  7. hey nikolan, check your pm box, i sent you a msg!
  8. To Fil and Yildirim, if they report my address change or whatever it is they want to report about me... I think I may be able to save my ass regarding the address change as it gives a 48 hours period, unless they claim I stopped living at that address ages ago.I was worried at some point that this woman wont cancel my contract without creating a scene but she said today, alongwith the threat of course, that we would be cancelling our contract tomorrow by signing a new paper saying Im not working for them anymore. Is that a way to cancel a contract?I will keep you guys posted on this issue since it is a common scenario (now that I've learnt) for language schools here to con their benign foreign teachers. Please no one take offense, ım absolutely in love with Turkey, just this one person (who could have been from any part of this world) is getting onto my nerves.Someone should ask this woman why she wants to cancel my permit anyways? What is she trying to prove by doing that? That I either have to be her bonded labour, or out of spite she'll have me thrown out of her country?This is plain out of spite, I believe. She has the choice of not doing anything and just letting me go. I worked for 3 weeks at her education centre (my weekly pay is 250 YTL, she paid 181 YTL for my tourist residence permit - this minus she owes me more than 500 YTL), and Im pretty sure that she wont give me back the money she owes me. True. I will drag my bf to the m
  9. buhuhuhu hu hu, How stupid am I going to sound now if I told you guys I can speak Turkish to a good level But for sure, the first thing Im gonna do on Monday is to report that my address has changed, I have the papers ready for that, I have contract papers of a new house (meaning a new address!) which I will get notarized first thing in the morning and run to the m
  10. Fil, thank you! Sorry, my mistake, I meant she THREATENED TO CANCEL MY TOURIST RESIDENCE PERMIT that I have now. I do know that I submitted a paper from the foriegn exchange office showwing the money I exchanged, so they didnt have any role to play on paper when it came to my financial self-sufficiency in Turkey.As for whether or not his brother was my guarantor, I don't know. We went to the notary office and got a paper saying that he was my friend. May be because he claimed that I was living at his address. I can get that sorted out I believe because I'm planning to go to the M
  11. Hi everyone, I have a strange problem and lemme know what you guys think will happen. For your reference, Im from India!1. I found a private teaching institute in Turkey online and asked if I could work with them as an English teacher. They said I was welcomed and that they would "take care" of my visa and work permit issues.2. I arrived in Turkey with a tourist visa (their suggestion) and signed a contract with them for 12 months. 3. Her brother who also works there went with me to the visa office and got me a tourist's resident permit. He submitted a paper saying he was my friend. Unfortunately, we could get only a 3 months extension, so ı couldn't have worked with them for 12 months as promised. (Indian nationals can get only 1 tourist visa per year).3. Within 2 weeks of working there I realized the owner was a over-employing me (e.g. meeting up at 7 in the morning for a class at 10, she was just unreasonable and pushy, we worked way longer hours in terms of traveling to our students and so on, none of which is mentioned in our contract, not even the number of hours that we are suppose to work, but I desperately needed a visa so I played along, my bad).4. I told the woman who hired me (the owner) that I didnt wanna work anymore. I lied that it was because I was having personal problems.5. I asked her to cancel my contract with her. She said " Okey, I will cancel your contract, but I WILL ALSO CANCEL YOUR RESIDENCE PERMIT"!! (which by the way happens to be a tourists' residence permit as they failed to get me a proper work permit)Questions for you guys are -- Can she cancel my tourist residence permit without having my passport or my current tourist residence permit (a little blue book) with her?- Was the contract legitimate in the first place since I never had a work visa for Turkey, and working in Turkey without a work visa or permit is illegal?- If she doesn't cancel my contract, can she sue me if I don't go to work? Because logically she is not supposed to have employed me without a work visa/permit.- Is there any way her brother can get my visa/ permit cancelled? or was she just bluffing me because she wanted me to stay put in the job?------------------------------Please help me, I don't want to leave Turkey so soon! And I can't work with an insulting dictator (yes, she's very mean, otherwise I would have stuck with my job )Thanks.
