For years as I have worked, people have asked me, "What are your career goals? What are you going to do when you get older?" Invariably, I have answered with, " I want to be a Wal-Mart door greeter.
Well, I have reached my career goal. Last night I got to be a door greeter at Wal-Mart for 15 minutes. That was long enough. For those of you who know, we have seen some VERY unusual door greeter's in our time. In St. George, we had one gentleman who always wore his Emmett Kelly clown costume, with make-up, to greet people. His counterpart was a lady who wore different costumes every season. Fairy costumes, with wings and Tutu, rabbit costumes, leprechaun costumes, you name it. Personally, it was a little scary, and no, I didn't wear a costume when I greeted people.
I hope that something comes along soon so I can leave this job, but if not, at least I've fulfilled a lifelong ambition. I am grateful to have the job, I really am, but I don't like having to work so many hours and be away from the family.
Take care, and keep dreaming. Stick.
