Tom was in his mid-50s, retired and started a second career. However, he just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day, he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But, he was a great worker and real sharp, so 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(or service of your choice) What did they say if you came in late there"? "They said, 'Good morning, General.'"
