President Obama came perilously close to having to wash some dishes on his recent trip to New York.
Mr. Obama revealed Friday that his credit card was rejected when he went to pay for his meal at a New York restaurant during the U.N. General Assembly gathering earlier this month.
“Turns out I guess I don’t use it enough,” so the payment wouldn’t go through, Mr. Obama explained.
“Apparently they thought there was some fraud going on,” Mr. Obama joked at a meeting Friday with employees of the Consumer Financial Protection Board, joking that “even I am affected” by the difficulties of dealing with the American financial system. The remarks were picked up by the C-SPAN feed of the event.
