Even though I am a turk, I hate them as well. But I found a little trick: after his trolling, you should troll him about paying as well. :D
Having visited Istanbul and gotten Dondurma from such a vendor complete with the show, all I can say is it was one of the funnest experiences of the trip. I had no idea about what went on when asking for an ice cream cone and the Turks who were around when it occurred were all obviously in on the joke since they grew up with it. The showmanship alone was ...
@User I don't speak their language and I would be really pissed if he does what he does to me on top of not understanding my request not to do it. and then this: .. seriously why can't he ask for my permission before doing his tricks? Of course he can, in turkish! :p
