Grand Avenue (9/2/10)

Somewhere along the line, our society decided that certain jobs should be reserved for the elderly. Walmart greeter is one of those jobs. Strangely enough, so is Wrigley Field usher. When my grandfather retired in the late ’90s, he took a few years off to relax. He watched TV, traveled to Mexico, and helped gut his old workplace (now a Starbucks). Then he got bored and started applying for jobs. Where did he land? Wrigley Field, of course. The home of the Chicago Cubs may welcome young people through its turnstiles, but it employs old people to usher them to their seats. The whole thing makes sense if you think about it; who better than a retiree to teach some inebriated whippersnappers a thing or two?
