Have you heard the phrase “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover“?
Charles is a man who has spent his life in service to others, but in two very different roles.
Charles recently came out of retirement to be a Walmart greeter. He was a great worker, had a great work ethic, and was always tidy.
However, his supervisor was getting frustrated because Charles struggled with being on time. He was often 5-10 minutes late, sometimes even 15!
His supervisor knew that Charles had served in the military and asked what happened if Charles was late in that role…
You can imagine the supervisor’s face when Charles humbly replied, “They usually saluted and said ‘good Morning, General. Can I get your coffee, sir?’.”
Charles was probably allowed some flexibility in his start time after that!
