That's not where Angela works

I took the bus to the main train station this morning to catch a train to one of my many talks I give around the country. I was upstairs on the double bus, there were only 4 of us there. One was a young girl, maybe 14 or 15, with a video camera. She was filming the entire ride and telling her camera what she was seeing right now.

Except that she was getting it wrong.

After the Reichstag she trained the camera on the Paul-Löbe-Haus, an office building, and started to describe this as being where Angela Merkel works and has her official guests like the Prince of Wales and all. This was too much for the rather disheveled gentleman sitting across the aisle from her. "No!" he said, "she lives on the other side of the road!"

The girl looked shocked, and she didn't want to believe the guy. I came to his rescue, said: "He's right, she lives and works over here." He grinned, and the girl dashed over to the other side of the bus, apologizing to the camera that she had made a mistake and that Angela worked over here.

Anyone want to bet that the video is now on YouTube?
