(BERLIN, GERMANY) -- A Berlin job centre unwittingly offered an unemployed woman work in a brothel.
"The advert just said they were looking for someone to work in a massage parlour, we weren't to know it was a brothel," said a spokesman for the government-run agency in Berlin's central Mitte district on Thursday.
"It is a bit embarrassing though", he said.
Rage, rather than embarrassment was the response of the 25-year-old woman to the offer, who has been looking for work without success since April in Germany's cash-strapped capital.
"It really is a bit much if the job centre assumes that the best thing is for you to try your luck in a whorehouse," she told Tageszeitung newspaper.
"We'll spoil you with hot kisses, tender and loving massages or no-holds-barred sex," the brothel says of its employees on its website.
