Right as I walked into the store on Monday night, a greeter smiled at me behind a plate of plastic cups filled with Sofritas.
The greeter, a black guy with corn-rows, nodded at Lester and Perry like an old friend.
The greeter had acne and a pair of tights that showed off his skinny knock-knees.
Therefore the said rl, is greeter than ye: And even now it was shewed ul, was equall to rl.
Yes, sir; her position at that time, so she told us, was that she was a greeter for the city of Fort Worth.
A bill glided across the register of the hotel desk, and the greeter promised to attend to the club sandwiches himself.
Old English gretan "to come in contact with" (in sense of "attack, accost" as well as "salute, welcome," and "touch, take hold of, handle"), from West Germanic *grotjan (cf. Old Saxon grotian, Old Frisian greta, Dutch groeten, Old High German gruozen, German grüßen "to salute, greet"), perhaps originally "to resound" (via notion of "cause to speak"), causative of Proto-Germanic *grætanan, root of Old English grætan (Anglian gretan) "weep, bewail," from PIE *gher- "to call out." Greet still can mean "cry, weep" in Scottish & northern England dialect, though this might be from a different root. Grætan is probably also the source of the second element in regret. Related: Greeted; greeting.
