Bush responds to store's job offer

February 22, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Former President George W. Bush has visited a Dallas hardware store that earlier this month made him a lighthearted offer of work as a greeter. Andrea Bond, a manager at Elliott's Hardware, says Bush walked into the store 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.

Bond said Bush spent about an hour shopping and talking to customers.
