Oh man, we would not want to be this waiter. At the Demmin Christian Democratic Union, the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, got showered in beer after a waiter accidentally tipped over his tray.

The 21-year-old waiter was reportedly shoved from behind, spilling five beers over Merkel's back. "[I] tried to catch the beers, but it was too late. I shouted 'S***!' really loudly," he reportedly said.

Seems like Merkel reacted fairly well, though. "She turned around, grinned at me — and even though she was wet, went to the speaker’s stage shortly afterwards," the waiter said.
 Not bad; much better than Ryan Seacrest's reaction to Sacha Baron Cohen at the Academy Awards. Watch Merkel's reaction below.
