Quoting TheAenigma

 

 

 I can only imagine that Alameda´s experience of Turkish families is strictly in the east

 

 Actually Aenigma...a lot of it was in New York, San Francisco, Istanbul and Ankara, Antalya...anyway...your point?{#lang_emotions_unsure}

no matter whether they were from south or east, probably they were not so educated

education has nothing to do with that. its a matter of culture, mentality or personal habbits (which also refers again to culture)

Actually I don´t understand what problem you have with people being able to share possessions. As for my Turkish friends, I would think university graduates...are educated. 

 

Of course not all Turkish people are as capable, or have the ability or desire to share as others.  To me the ability to share is quite commendable.

The problematic thing is not sharing. But what is understood from your first sentences is like they were using your things without asking or forcing you to give your things to them. ( you said that you had to leave your clothes at the place you stayed).

 I think I did not make myself clear. I edited my original message. I did not HAVE to leave clothing, I wanted them to have them as they liked them and looked good in them.

 

Nobody ever demanded anything from me. In the cases of people "borrowing" things, they were close friends who had my keys to come and go as they pleased, or I was in their homes. There was an element of recipocity, comfort and familial feelings involved.

 

Whew! I hope I was able to make myself clear.
