President Obama walks into the Bank of America on Martha's Vineyard to
cash a check. As he approaches the cashier he says "Good morning Ma'am,
could you please cash this check for me"?
Cashier: "It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your
Obama: "Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think
there was any need to. I am President Barrack Obama, the president of
the United States of America!!!!"
Cashier: "Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations,
monitoring, of the banks because of impostors and forgers, etc I must
insist on seeing ID"
Obama: "Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell
you. Everybody knows who I am"
Cashier: "I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I
must follow them."
Obama: "I am urging you please to cash this check."
Cashier: "Look Mr. President this is what we can do: One day Tiger
Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he
pulled out his putting iron and made a beautiful shot across the bank
into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his
check. Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his
tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed
in my cup. With that spectacular shot we cashed his check. So, Mr.
President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as
the President of the United States?"
Obama stood there thinking, and thinking and finally says: "Honestly,
there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can't think of a single
qualification I'm good at"
Cashier: "Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?"
