Are You Getting All Your Discounts?

There are momentous occasions people always remember in their life:

Their first day of school
Their first kiss
Birth of a first child

And, the first time they get offered a senior discount.

It’s quite a shock to realize that someone thinks that you are old enough to deserve a discount. Yes, it’s likely that it’s a teenager behind a fast food counter who still looks like they aren’t past puberty. But, still.

The immediate reaction is:

“I’m not that old.”

followed by

“Wow, do I look that old?”

Much consternation and vilification follow. And it’s likely you won’t be returning to the place anytime soon.
