Everyone can remember that feeling of soul-destroying boredom that you experience as a child when you’re forced to do things you don’t want to.

But few pictures have ever encapsulated that feeling quite like this one.

When a retiring Secret Service agent and his wife were invited to speak with Barack Obama in the Oval Office, the couple’s young son was offered the chance to go face-to-face with the world’s most powerful man.

He opted instead to go face-to-face with a sofa at the White House.
