Bush Checks On Job Offer
It looks like George Bush may have a sense of humor after all. Either that, or he already misses the spotlight. About a month ago, right after Bush left office and Obama took over, a north Dallas hardware store put an ad in the Dallas Morning News. The ad for Elliott's Hardware noted that Bush was out of work, and offered him a job at the store as a door greeter.
Last Saturday, Bush checked out the offer -- sort of. As he entered the hardware store last Saturday, he told the manager, "I'm looking for a job." Actually, Bush was on an errand for his wife, Laura. He wound up buying some flashlights, batteries, nightlights and a can of WD-40.
One of the store's managers, Andrea Bond, kept the joke going by giving Bush one of the store's uniform shirts and a nametag with "W" on it. It turned out to be a good photo-op and some light-hearted publicity for both Bush and the hardware store.
He wasn't much of a president, but it looks like he's trying to be a good neighbor in north Dallas.
