The BBC reports:
“We’re confident that your experience working in your own family business, as well as your people skills developed throughout years of meeting with foreign dignitaries would make you an excellent candidate for the position,” read the job offer, signed by Kyle Walters, president and CEO of Elliott’s Hardware.
“Furthermore, like you, many of our greeters are retired from the corporate world, so we’re sure you’ll have no trouble making new friends.”
The job would have been part-time leaving Bush plenty of time working on his presidential library. He also is said to be writing about the eight years he spent in the White House.
The Bush’s moved into their new home on Friday in a pricey Preston Hollow. They also have their ranch in Crawford, Texas.
After declining the job offer Bush returned home where he and wife Laura greeted the local Boy Scout troop looking for donations door to door.
