Walmart Greeter--a classic


 


Not a clue if it is true or not but I like the story.
 
 

 
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, 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?"
