This is a question It's Not What It Looks Like!

Cawl wrote two years ago, "People seem to have a knack for walking in at just the wrong time:
"Well, my clothes got wet, so did his... Yes, officer, huddling together to conserve body heat... Yes officer, he's five... No Officer... I'm not his Dad."

What have you done that, in retrospect, you'd really rather nobody had seen, mostly as things just get worse the more you try to explain it?

In last week's QOTW
I made a reference to prostitution being legal. Now, I see a lot of whores on Oranienburgerstraße but almost nowhere else, so after I posted it I got the urge to check my facts and googled "berlin prostitution legality", checked the wikipedia article and left, satisfied that my QOTW post wan't misrepresenting German law.

Fast forward to yesterday, I'm in work with a coworker sitting next to me, and I go to google my area of town, "Berlin Prenzlauer Berg." Google gets helpful with it's auto-fill and in big letters auto-completes to prostitution. My coworker turns to me and asks if I want to bring someone to the company christmas dinner after-all.

My GCSE German
translates Oranienburgerstraße as "Onion Burger Street"

Not quite
That would be Zwiebelburgerstraße, Oranien doesn't mean anything, but Oranienburg is the name of a town just outside of Berlin. Also known as Oranienburg-Sachsenhausen. Lovely.

thats why i said MY GCSE German
I only remember a few phrases

"schnell schnell kartopflenkopf"
"mein vogel ist getot"
"ich speile tennis"

so i think "Onion Burger Street" was pretty close :-)
