Wallmart Greeter

Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired…..
 
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 sorry and 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 will try  harder.”

Seeming puzzled, the manager went on  to comment, 
“I know you’re retired  from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you

there if you showed up in the morning late 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?”999999   One of my  favorite stories,  ever!

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.

    • Too kind my dear – too kind! I’m fine but really want to know how you are as you were not very well a short while ago. I have been out of it for a while moving house.
