Late to work at Walmart?

A retired military officer, somewhat bored after his exciting life in the military, decided to apply for a job working as a greeter at Walmart.  Needless to say, he was hired on the spot.  He was a great employee and enjoyed his work.  During his annual review, however, his supervisor said, "Listen, you are doing a great job -- you're very friendly and interactive with the customers and other employees, and we're really glad you're working here! 
The only thing is, you're always 5 or 10 minutes late to work.  I'm surprised by that because you used to work in the military and  I'm sure they didn't tolerate tardiness.  When you were in the military, what did they say when you showed up 5 or 10 minutes late?"

"They usually said, 'Good morning, General, can I get you some coffee?'"
