FWD MSG: Wal-Mart greeter – awesome =)

Below are two messages that I received and are in my opinion worthy of sharing with everyone.

Thank you for stopping by to read, & to our Military Past, Present & Future…

Thank you for being willing to sacrifice your life so that others can  enjoy the freedoms that so many of us take for granted.

FWD MSG: Wal-Mart greeter – awesome =)

We all need to remember who it is that keeps us free.

This is a good short story from a friend of mine. Enjoy ! 🙂


   Personal note: We all need to show our military personnel we care.

    Example: Kathy and I try to walk up to military personnel and shack their hands and thank them for their service. ( Past & Present.)

    Last week while eating in town at our favorite eatery, ( Luxury Dinner ),We saw 5 Air Force personnel eating there.

When they went to pay, I walked up to them, shook their hands, and told them their money was no good here today and paid for their meals.

    The surprise, and gratitude in their eyes and words was worth more to us than gold.

    We ask you to join us in showing them that we care about what they do for us.

A hand shake and a thank you means a lot to them. Any thing more is up to you.

                      From Buck and Kathy



You just have to appreciate this one. 

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, 6, 8 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’ll try harder.”

Seeming puzzled, the manager went on to comment,

“It’s odd though your coming in late. I know you’re retired from the Armed Forces.

What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning so late and 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!
