Jan. 9, 1955: Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th president, spoke to reporters and cameramen on his Gettysburg, Pa., farm. It was unclear if the president had confiscated this camera or wanted a photo of the scrum for himself. Apparently, he had a temper, evidenced in a 1969 article: “Once he topped a tee shot at Augusta and flared up in such anger that Richard Flohr, his Secret Service guard, grew alarmed. Mr. Flohr ran to the general and, in the manner of a top sergeant talking to a buck private, shouted: ‘Now you just cut that out right now, Mr. President. And I mean cut it out, or I’m going to put you in that cart and take you right back to the cottage and lock you in.’ ” His Gettysburg home seemed to have a mellowing effect.

I just had a grown man tell me to “go make me a sandwich” as I was doing his pourover

I told him I didn’t understand what he meant because we’re a coffee shop, and he was like “oh it’s a joke” and I said I “didn’t get it” and he went “it’s funny because you’re a woman working in a kitchen”

And I just stared at him until he got how stupid he sounded

let them feel their ignorance burn into their souls
