WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Barack Obama returned early from a five-day trip to Latin America on Tuesday and discovered he was locked out.
The problem started after somebody failed tell the staff that Obama was coming back to work. It caused the Commander and Chief trouble when trying to open the Oval office.
Obama did not waste time; he turned and walked to another set of doors partially obscured by some flowering spring bushes.
President George W. Bush had a similar mishap in 2005 when he tried to open a locked set of doors after a news conference in Beijing.
