Barack Obama may be free from the hassles and pressures that come with being the most powerful man in the world, but he certainly cannot escape the paparazzi.
The couple has been seen quietly walking in New York City just after the vacay as hundreds of cheering Americans waited outside to catch a glimpse of the former POTUS.
During one of his many dates with Michelle, at a local Big Apple eatery, Obama was ready to pay for the meal they shared.
He gave the waitress his credit card, only for the lady to come back to him saying the card was declined.
Say what now??!!
Obama revealed the embarrassing moment speaking at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – while he was still POTUS - signing a new order calling for tighter debit card security and enhanced federal measures to protect victims of identity theft.
“I went to a restaurant up in New York when I was, during the U.N. General Assembly, and my credit card was rejected," Obama told the press.
"I was trying to explain to the waitress, you know, I really think that I've been paying my bills," Obama said. "Even I'm affected by this."
"It turned out, I guess, I don't use it enough," he went on. "So they thought there was some fraud going on,” he added. “Fortunately, Michelle had hers."
Michelle Obama ended up picking up the bill using her own credit card.
