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?”

    LOL!! I’m sure the story will be a lot different if he was a private, in that case he would’ve done lots of push-ups. 🙂

    Charlie should have asked his piss-ain’t boss to run some laps around WallyWorld.

    Then taken that stupid smock and shoved it….

    Happy Trails B2

    That was a good one Steve. I had to set two alarms when I was in the Army. Only an E-5 They threatened to court martial me if I wasn’t on time.

    You’d think the admiral could at least be a cashier.

    I would hope a retired admiral would have a better second career!

    I’m sure there was a happy ending…and the Admiral had the boss court martialed or made to walk the plank.

    Retiree-greeter at Walmart is fine too, provided the boss also offer them tea/coffee if they arrive late at work 😉 LOL
