Greeters at Walmart
For years my fall back plan for employment was being the greeter at Walmart. Of course at that time it was humorous - how old would I have to be, those folks are ancient. But given my current circumstances I may resort to that after all.
Yesterday I ran in to Sam's gold mine to pick up a few items. On the way in I spoke to the greeter. She looked pretty old. I wonder how long she will last. I am quickly approaching that age. The news that Walmart had increased their wages 15% was encouraging.
As I walked around the store, I noted the comfortable attire the store associates wore. In the line ahead of me was an associate was checking out using her employee card to get a discount.
Yep, it may be time to fall back after all. The moon and the stars are colliding - I have reached that age and I am unemployed.
Of course my last recourse if the greeter position did not work out was being a bagger at Bi-Lo.
So I still have options.
