Best excuse ever? Obama gives fifth-grader presidential pardon for missing school

Tyler Sullivan wasn’t in school on Friday, but it’s fairly safe to say he’ll be excused. After all, he has handwritten note from President Barack Obama himself. The fifth-grade student missed class to attend Obama’s speech at the Honeywell plant near Minneapolis with his father on June 1.  Not only did Tyler snag a front-row seat and shake Obama’s hand, but the 11-year-old walked away with a personal note containing the presidential seal. ‘I said, “Hi President,”’ Tyler told the network. ‘And then he started asking me questions and he was like, “Oh, you must be out of school then?”‘ The President then reached for a pad of paper and a pen from the White House and proceeded to write the schoolboy an excuse note, complete with a presidential signature.  “Mr. Ackerman — Please excuse Tyler… he was with me!” Obama wrote before he signed paper and handed it back to Tyler.   ‘I was like. really?’ said Tyler. ‘I kind of want to brag at school and say “look what I got!”’  Tyler has now framed the note, which he hopes will be accepted by his teacher when he returns to school on Monday. I could need such an excuse every now and then for work ! Pretty sure it would work 🙂
