Wal-Mart Greeter

A friend of mine shared this story with me and I just couldn’t resist sharing it here.

Charlie, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn’t seem to get to work on time.

Every day he was 5, 10, even 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.  “Charlie, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job, 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.  It’s odd though, your coming in late.  I know you’re retired from the Armed Forces.  What did they say if you came in late there?”

“They said, Good Morning, Admiral, can I get you coffee, sir?”
