Walmart Greeter

You just have to appreciate this one. Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired......

Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies.

One day the boss called him into the office for a talk. "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here; but your being late so often is quite bothersome." "Yes, I know boss, and I am working on it." "Well good, you are a team player, that's what I like to hear."
"Yes sir, I understand your concern and I'll try harder."

Still puzzled, the manager went on to comment, "It's odd though your coming in late. I know you're retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning so late and so often?"

The old man looked down at the floor, then smiled. He chuckled quietly, then said with a grin, "They usually saluted and said, 'Good morning, Admiral. Can I get your coffee, sir?'"

Hell, my question is why would an admiral take a WM greeter gig other than sheer boredom? :p

Me, if I had that kind of quid and that kind of time on my hands I'm sure I could find plenty of worthy causes to put both to... like finishing my History degree and conning my way into teaching at the Academy, or orchestrating the hostile takeover of a third world banana-republic... or my personal pipedream of endowing a range facility at the National WWII Museum. :)
