Former President George Bush made a surprise appearance at the Elliott's Hardware in Dallas. The visit was one of Mr. Bush's first outings in Dallas since his recent move back to town. According to Elliott's spokesperson Andrea Bond, Mr. Bush entered the store around 11:00 this morning and jokingly said, "I'm looking for a job."
Elliott's recently invited Mr. Bush to work as a part-time greeter at the store. Among the job perks listed in the letter to Mr. Bush were a flexible schedule, opportunity to keep up on his people skills, and a seven-mile commute between the store and his new home.
Although Mr. Bush did not accept the position, he and his entourage spent about an hour browsing the aisles. Bond says Mr. Bush was extremely nice and talked with everyone who approached him. He ended up buying batteries, flashlights and a can of WD-40.
