Has this happened to You??


Charley, a new  retiree-greeter at K-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’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 Royal Australian Navy. 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?’”
