Did you know that Einstein's chauffeur had a particularly good memory? Read on ..........
One day Einstein was being driven to a city hall where he was to give a lecture . He was tired and rather bored with having given this lecture so many times before.
"I've heard you give that lecture dozens of times," said the chauffeur, "why don't I give it tonight instead of you? We actually look rather alike and probably no-one will notice."
So they changed jackets and hats and the chauffeur gave the lecture and even answered several questions quite adequately.
Then a man who was obviously a professor of astrophysics or some such subject asked a very long and complicated question to which the chauffeur listened carefully.
When the man sat down, the chauffeur didn't blink.
He said, "Sir, your question is so simple that I am going to ask my chauffeur who is sitting at the back of the hall to answer it........."
