One could argue that if they were to get an apology from Vice President Mike Pence, they’d deserve it. They might even have a long list of things for Pence to apologize for. But you’d be hard-pressed to find someone as persistent as this kid. During a celebration of National Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Pence, in his excitement, gestured out to a sea of children before him in gratitude and accidently bumped a kid in the nose.

A lesser, weaker man would brush it off as an accident and not trouble the Vice President of the United States for an apology. A lesser, weaker man would walk, smiling that he got to see a high-profile person up close and in person. But not this kid. He demanded retribution, following Pence, saying cute-ly, but firmly, “Excuse me… You owe me an apology.” This is a kid who knows what he wants in life, and is not afraid to go after it. And what happens when we pursue things we desire with a strong fervency? We get it, damn it. “Oh, I’m very sorry. I didn’t mean to bop you.”

Check out the video above, and dream of your own comeuppance.
