Bush Visits Store That Offered Him Job - February 23rd 2009, 08:24 PM

http://news.aol.com/article/bush-vis...m-job%2F353847

Former President George W. Bush has visited a Dallas hardware store that earlier this month made him a lighthearted offer to work as a greeter.
Andrea Bond, a manager at Elliott's Hardware, says Bush walked into the store Saturday and quipped: "I'm looking for a job."


The store had published an open letter to Bush, inviting him to apply for a store greeter position. The tongue-in-cheek appeal appeared in The Dallas Morning News and its commuter-oriented sister publication, Quick.
Bond says Bush spent about an hour shopping and talking to customers during the surprise visit. He bought a few flashlights, batteries and a can of WD-40. He also bought night lights.
Bush and his wife, Laura, moved into a home in the Preston Hollow area of Dallas on Friday.

Well, it would be a job much better suited to his abilities. Perhaps he should take it.

Or perhaps he could join his old friend Tony Blair as a Middle East peace envoy?

Everyone needs a job. Even ex-presidents. Although I am sure he won't get rejected from anywhere he applies, which is a little unfair to the rest of the world.

I can imagine his welcome now....

"Welcome to Elliot's Hardware, I love you."

in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.

I guess he might bring customers to the store if he does a good job thanking and saying hello.

He should work with children. No idea why, I just think he would be good at it
Or McDonalds. He should take on a really really normal job. It would be an interesting experience.

A job is a job. And everyone could use one. There isn't anything wrong with that job so why make a big deal about it?

This thread seriously just made my day. I didn't like Bush as a president, but I would seriously go to the US just to pay a visit to whatever store he happened to be working at .... it's highly amusing either way.

"Welcome to Wal-Mart! "
"Would you like fries with that?"
"Would you like to try that dress in a 10?"

This is going to amuse me for a VERY long time.

Lol, I was touched by his visit. It was in good spirits of him to go. It's so easy to forget he's human.

A door greeter? No offense to any people that liked the guy. But I wouldn't want that guy greeting me at a store. It'd be too weird. That guy was scary to me when he was president I don't want to see him when I pick up a saw. Plus wouldn't he be afraid if he had shoes thrown at him what about nails and hammers? Those would hurt more.

He should be a greeter. It's better suited to his abilities than the job he's held for the last eight years. I'd kill to walk into a Wal-Mart and have him help me find something, or see him cleaning the bathrooms.
