I hope this is a tongue in cheek message!
I'm not the least bit offended when someone wants to save me
money due to my age. I can't get in the habit of asking for senior
discounts and often forget.
McDonalds gives a senior discount on drinks but I always forget to ask.
(Lately they are 99Ę for all sizes so it doesn't matter.)
I sell tickets at one of the main gates for our Kentucky State Fair.
I kinda like meeting the public and even tho the hours are long and the
pay is only a notch over minimum wage I do it for a change of pace.
I often ask folks if anyone in the car is over 55.
Many times they look surprised and say things like "do I LOOK that old???"
If they fess up and say yes I grin and say "half price!!!"
That usually puts the smile back on their faces.
55 is pretty low age for "senior discount".
I'll take the discount any way I can get it.
