We had a greeter at our local Walmart that was 95 when he finally died. His name was Tony. He was always joyful and full of smiles and happiness. It was always a pleasure to walk in and have him welcome you and ask how your day is going.
Then he had a stroke when he was about 93. When he recouped, he went back to work, but his greeting system was blitzed. They just propped him up on a stool just inside the door. He didn't talk. He didn't even move. He just sat there, his eyes following you like a gargoyle in a haunted house. It was fucking grim. I'm not sure what the point was, besides to make him feel useful. He couldn't even deter shoplifters. What would he do, honestly?
I had to start using the other door. Shopping at Walmart is shit enough without having to carry that image with you the entire time.

Thats harsh man....

This guy put in a 30 plus after retiring. I wonder how many pensions he had  Grin

My step fil was sicked off in his 40s. Lazy mofo never worked another day.

I have worked since I was 14 so 30+ years in but only 15 for the man. That was enough  Grin
