George, a new retiree greeter at WalMart, just couldn’t seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 10 or 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: “George, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic. You do a great job, but 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 you’re coming in late. I know you’ve recently retired from the Air Force. What did they say if you came in late there?”
“They usually said, 'Good morning, General. May I get you your coffee, sir?’”
