H works in state security. Often, we’ll (half) jokingly ask about his work, but he’ll tell us that he simply reads the newspaper everyday.
No glamour, no intrigue, no James Bond 🙂
Recently, I watched Das Wunder von Berlin with him. In one scene, a Stasi (GDR secret police) officer was able to get a table at an over-booked restaurant just by flashing his pass.
I asked him, “Since you’re a Stasi as well, will you be able to do that too? :)”
He just laughed.
(On Being a Stasi) [via SMS]
H: Hello! Do you happen to be working late today?
Me: Yes, I am. OMG, how do you know that? Spooky.
H: I’m with the Stasi, remember?
I do not work late often and I’d not told anyone that I’ll be doing so tonight.
The Stasi can read minds!
Mind-reading is the future of surveillance. The new and improved panopticon.
Haha. On Mondays, I think too much, almost on purpose. For self-entertainment 🙂
