A British traveler leaves a wealth in Turkey for a Turkish bellboy, and he will never need to work again.
After being handed a tiny money by a wealthy British tourist, a HOTEL bellboy will never have to work again.
Taskin Dasdan, a hotel bellboy of the Korur De Lux Hotel in Kuşadasi, Turkey, was awarded an undisclosed sum of money, which is said to be the lion’s part of the bequest left by British tourist Charles George Courtney.
Every summer, Charles spent his vacations there, staying in room 401, which became known as “Charlie’s room” over time.
Despite the fact that the large figure is sufficient to ensure Mr Dasdan never has to work again, he stated that he likes his profession and will continue to work since he enjoys meeting people from all over the world.
Mr Taskin had worked as a bellboy since 1990 and had known Charles for many years, making him feel welcome and like a member of the family, as he did with all guests.
He claimed that at one point, Charles handed him money for his children’s schooling, for which he was quite grateful, despite the fact that he had not expected anything else.
When Charles died this year on an indeterminate date, his family was surprised to learn that the majority of his estate would go to Mr Taskin, with minor bequests to other hotel members.
Mr Taskin told local media that the huge offer, which included some smaller amounts for his hotel colleagues, had astounded him.
“At the hotel, we treat everyone equally, we treat them as family, not as tourists,” Taskin told the Bayez Gazete.
“After Charles died, we received a phone call from England informing us that he had given us a sizable portion of his estate.”
