Supermarket Shelf Stacker

admiral shelf stacker 2I like this story from our friends in America. -  

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 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"? 

One of my favorite stories, ever!
