Wal-Mart greeter becomes a Facebook sensation

SEDALIA, Mo. Clyde Smith, or "Smitty," as he's known, makes a living being friendly to people at a /*Wal-Mart*/ in Sedalia, Mo.

He's so good at his job, a local seventh grader created a /*Facebook*/ page in his honor.

He now has nearly 6,000 fans.

And here's the kicker: Smitty didn't even own a computer and had no idea what Facebook was until recently.

"Every day, they come in the store and say, 'You're on Facebook.' and I say, 'I am? What is that?' Smitty says.

Smitty says he's flattered by the attention, but adds he's just doing his job.
