One of my favorite stories ever.....

Funniest-Story-image

Young people forget that old people had a career before they retired.....

Charley, a new retiree-greeter at WalMart, 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.”  

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?"
