Bob was a Walmart greeter who was habitually late for work, but otherwise an excellent employee. Out of frustration concerning this gentleman’s tardiness, the Walmart store manager called him in for a one-on-one meeting.
“So,” began the manager, “I understand you’re retired from the armed forces. May I inquire as to which branch?”
“I was in the Navy,” Bob replied.
“And,” inquired the boss, “were you ever late arriving at your former job?”
“Why, yes, sometimes I came late” answered Bob.
“Well, tell me, what comment was made upon your late arrival?”
The greeter smiled and replied, “Good morning, Admiral Jones, would you like tea or coffee this morning?”
“Experience” is the name people give to their mistakes.
