Coming In Late

Tom was in his early 50s, retired and started a second career.

However, he just couldn’t seem to get to work on time

Every day he was five, ten or fifteen minutes late.

But as he was a good worker and very sharp, the boss was in a quandary about how to deal with it

Finally, one day he called Tom into his office for a talk.

“Tom, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job, 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

It’s odd though, your coming in late

I know you’re retired from the Air Force

What did they say if you came in late there?”

“They said, ‘Good morning, General’.”
