One sunny day in January 2013 an old man wearing what was once very nice
clothing but now worn and ragged approached the White House from across
Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to
the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet
with President Obama."
The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer
president and no longer resides here."
The old man said, "Okay", and walked away. *
*The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the
same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama." *
*The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no
longer president and no longer resides here." *
*The man thanked him and, again, just walked away. *
*The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the
very same U.S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President
*The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and
said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to
speak to Mr. Obama. I've told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the
president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?" *
*The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love
hearing it." *
*The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow"*
Hilarious, I can't say I'm surprised. We've got several individuals here in Portales, NM that use a motorized cart as their sole means of transportation. Of course we don't have any major highways running through the middle of our rinky-dink town.
