Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies.

One day the boss called him into the office for a talk. "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here, but your being late so often is quite bothersome."

"Yes sir, I know, and I am working on it."

"Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear.”

“Yes sir, I understand your concern and I’ll try harder.”

Seeming puzzled, the manager went on to comment, “It's odd though you're coming in late. I know you're retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning so late and so often?"

The old man looked down at the floor, then smiled. He chuckled quietly, then said with a grin,

"They usually saluted and said,

"Good morning General, can I get your coffee sir?"

All set to load up for Hershey. I actually use to share space with a friend that had a rig almost as strange. He built a cab over camper out of scrap corrugated roofing material and scrap lumber he had pulled out of the town dump. Had an old storm door on the back. He had such great stuff that he would drag out over the whole week as he had space to display. People were still stopping and asking where he was a couple of years after he passed.

When the ball joints broke on the little Chevy S10 pickup I had for a few years, I was at the wrong end of a long driveway, and blocking getting any other vehicle out. I was running behind for an appointment, so I ran into the shop (beyond the other end of that long driveway!) and grabbed my floor jack and a block of wood. Used the jack to raise the frame enough to get the block of wood under it, then repositioned the jack under the broken suspension where it could sit firmly. Then slowly drove the little truck back to where I would work on it. Grabbed the Chevy (tow monster) Suburban and went to my appointment.
