The Wal-Mart Greeter

Wal-Mart Greeter

Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just Wal-Mart greetercouldn’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 Navy. What did they say if you came in late there?”

“They said, ‘Good morning, Admiral, can I get you coffee, sir?’ ”
