Bush Turns Down Job Offer From Dallas Hardware Store

Idle 11

Elliott's Hardware store offered George W. Bush a position as a greeter in an open letter in a Dallas newspaper last month. Bush walked in the store on Saturday and said, "I'm looking for a job." Andrea Bond, a manager at the store, said president Bush spent about an hour with his secret service security detail shopping and talking to customers during the surprise visit. Despite having a lot of free time, the former president turned the job down. I'm sure W would make a great hardware store employee as long as Karl Rove worked in the aisle next to him.

Bob unfortunately does not rule the Universe; the Ur-Quan rule the universe, and even Bob is to fully able to stop them, but he still makes good choices. [] [] []

Hopefully someone will report this posting to Mr.Rove and samzenpus will disappear. Then we won't have to see any more of his crappy postings.

well, after how bad that was I still would not even let him work at a hardware store. too many heavy machines at his disposal, but its better than the entire U.S. army

Details save this from idle (1)

The article mentions that he hasn't found a publisher yet for his memoirs. That's the most surprising detail in the story. I have to wonder if that's because the publishers think no one will read it or if the normal process even for a former President takes time?

... it's because not one single publisher has been able to successfully decipher the hundreds of pages of idiotic scribbling.

And to think we could have written a small shell script eight years ago to take care of his other job.
