If George W. Bush wants some useful occupation for those long, post-presidential workdays, Dallas’ own Elliott’s Hardware has an offer ready: Come be our greeter!
Elliott’s advises of the offer in a press release, but they assure us that they have already directly appealed for the former president and new Highland Park resident directly:
“[W]e are offering the position to Mr. Bush in all sincerity,” said Kyle Walters, Elliott’s Hardware president & CEO. “We think it would be a great fit for him as he settles back into life in Dallas.”
Can you imagine walking into Elliott’s Hardware and seeing GW standing there waiting for the opportunity to shake your hand. If I find out he’s working there, I swear to God, I’ll find one of those hand buzzers and drive to Dallas myself and find this store.
Really, it’s a match made in heaven. GWB is a people-kinda-guy with a great memory for names and faces – exactly the sort of person to make you feel welcome when you’re looking for a toilet flange or a socket wrench.
Nice! Actually, I was thinking of a ball-peen hammer, electric hedge-clippers, a garden hose, a car battery complete with jumper cables and an outdoor grill. Seeing GWB standing there grinning at me while holding all of those hardware purchases would make me feel really welcome! Really!
