Well, I will confess I'm tentatively scheduled to start a job on Jan. 7, more for something to do and social networking than anything else. But I will still have my "KMA hat"* firmly in place! When I was working this was known as an "attitude problem". Yup, got that right.


*KMA = Kiss My A..

Speaking of Wal-Mart greeters, a "senior" has been a greeter at our local Wal-Mart for several years now. He always has a warm sincere grin.

Must be the job made in heaven for that guy, he just seems to get energy from it. Wal-Mart made a good hire with that guy.
