Third Come, First Served

| Friendly | November 30, 2016

(I and several friends are discussing the recent US election.)

Friend #1: “This has got to be a huge shock for Melania Trump. I mean, she just came to the US to get his money and now she’s third lady of the United States!”

Friend #2: “First lady. She’s first lady.”

Friend #1: “No, she’s his third wife.”

(It took us nearly 20 minutes to convince him that the wife of the president is always the first lady. It has nothing to do with what number wife she is.)
