    A Chinese tourist spent nearly two weeks in a German migrant hostel after mistakenly applying for asylum when he actually wanted to report a theft.

    Germany is so desperate for refugees that they're even seizing tourists!

    OMG. :eek: :rolleyes:

    Still, to look on the bright side, presumably there was no charge. So he got a cheap 'holiday'.

    Also, he can tell his friends he had an authentic German experience. :giggle:

    EDIT The last line in that article kills me.
    " ... the man did not get angry but left Germany saying simply that he had imagined Europe to be quite different. "

    :rofl:

    Poor guy, all he wanted to do was chill. They should give him compensation and a free ticket to Germany!

    To be fair, coming from China he probably thought it was a luxury holiday camp.
