Tom retired in his early 50's and started a second career. However, even though he loved his new job, he couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day, he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late.

But he was a good worker and really sharp, so his boss was in a quandry about how to deal with it. Finally, one day, Tom's boss called him into the office for a talk. "Tom, I must tell you I truly like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job, but being late for work nearly every day is quite annoying to me as well as your fellow workers." Tom replied; "Yes sir, I know, I'm sorry, but am working on it".

"That's what I like to hear, " h is boss said. "However, the fact that you consistentl comne to work late does puzzle me because I understand that you retired from the U.S. Air Force, and they have some pretty rigid rules about tardiness, Isn't that correct?" "Yes I did retire from the Air Force and I'm mighty proud of it!" said Tom. "Well what did they say when you came in late?" asked his boss.


Thye said' 'Good morning, General."
