Well, as they say, the system worked.
From remarks today during an event at which Obama signed an executive order beefing up security on federal credit cards:
I went to a restaurant up in New York when I was during the U.N. General Assembly, and my credit card was rejected. It turned out I guess I don’t use it enough. They were — they thought there was some fraud going on. Fortunately, Michelle had hers.
I was trying to explain to the waitress, you know, I really think that I’ve been paying my bills. Even I’m affected by this.
