“I have never been ashamed of any kind of work. To obtain an income, I have been willing to stand from early morning until the evening prayers and work and serve people. There have been absolutely worthless people, but I have had no choice but to serve them tea and water and say here you go. I have met a lot of people and have been in strange situations, but I have simply accepted all of it. I have always said, life is full of desolation in the same way it is full of happiness.
I have often met people who drank their tea and said I don’t have money to pay. It has been very normal for me and I have even served him another tea. But what pains me is to see people perceive me as dumb and drink tea and leave without paying. I have been there many times, with rich, wise, and well-known people. It is common for a university professor with a doctorate degree to drink an ill-gotten tea for 250 IQDs and leave. I have unfortunately seen many of those.”
