(CNN) - Even the President of the United States can get locked out of his home once in a while.
The President returned early from a five-day trip to Latin America on Wednesday and had a little bit of trouble opening the French doors leading to the Oval Office.
The problem was apparently somebody didn't tell the staff that the president was coming back to work, and the doors were locked.
The Commander in Chief didn't miss a beat. He non-chalantly turned and walked to another set of doors.
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.
