Wal-Mart Greeter!

Will on the road again 2011/06/27 14:50:05

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.”

Seeming 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?’”

    That would be the right answer I imagine for that situation! From an Admiral to a door greeter is a step down I'd say. . . he must have been bored with retirement.

    And that becomes the prime example of indiscretion towards detail, let Obama be late bringing the troops back and you want his nuts in a device for cracking; not that its not apparent now..... My point is be punctual no matter what your title is funeral diirectores must be punctual and there clients aren't in a hurry at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cracking apparent punctual title funeral diirectores punctual clients hurry deceased

    Modest but real. Yah heard me?
    The fact remains he's an admiral and Obladder is pissing you off because unrefutably he's the commander and chief of the free world so stay with The admiral and ill mash with Obie for a couple more, at least....... have your way but 100 years from now history will still be black in the white house....... thats the real beef so stop sugar coating your conceits..... If it was Bush White Orchids wouldnt have a problem but he's the reason were in this state of calamity as is, when it was Clinton whites were mad but he tripped his self up and then when it looked like the undertow was going to stay on top yaw f*****ed the election up.. you want more Bush played with Bin Ladens money and got folk killled but black boy running straightenmed that out so whose the real villian here, huh!
