White House Forgets To Pay Tab On Father’s Day Lunch

President Barack Obama celebrated Father’s Day a few days early when he took two armed services personnel and two local barbers to lunch at a Washington D.C. BBQ. Everything was going great, until the lunch crew left without paying the bill. One would have to suspect that Obama’s companions thought, excusably, that the President must have this one. They thought wrong.

ABC News reports that the group had just finished lunch at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill when the incident occurred.

As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.

The White House was made aware of their mistake and settled the tab before the end of the business day.
