While waiting for our meat to cook, I showed the Kurdish kebab man a copy of the CARS Bible. He went and cleaned his hands and then reverently took the book and studied the cover. After seeing his interest, I offer it to him as a gift. He thought about it for a while and, apparently feeling embarrassed to take such an expensive book for free, said “that’s not acceptable” and handed the book back. Our conversation turned to other topics, but a few minutes later he said “Is it really for free?” “Yes”, I replied with a big smile and handed him the book, which he gratefully received.
