When we spent the day in town this week we stopped for dinner at Hardee's (a fast food joint). We had a coupon for buy one get one free on a chicken sandwich, so Bob and I got that, and we ordered a small burger for William and a bucket of chicken for the other children. We also wanted one soda and a few fries. The cashier rang it all up, added in a combo discount because of the soda and fries, and then topped the whole order off with a SENIOR DISCOUNT. hahaha. Bob's beard is a bit grey, but he certainly doesn't look over 60. I teased him about it for quite a while. I still don't know if she was just trying to be nice, or if she really thought Bob was OLD. :-D

Haha! I remember being with Dad in a McDonald's one time when they asked "Are you eligible for a senior discount?"

He didn't know what to say. I reminded him that he'd received his AARP card in the mail (though he wasn't yet 50), so he took the discount. :-)

Now he proudly asks for it everywhere he goes...

Thanks for coming back to visit. I appreciate all the comments.

Over here I think the 'seniors' card has little to do with age...some of the people asking for discount are in their 40's unless it doubles as a 'can't work for various unspecified reasons' card?

They are all met with a big smile and a 'we don't discriminate against the young and offer a discount card to all our customers'

not all appreciate the sentiment!

Hey, there wasn't a picture when I first commented. :-)
