If that happened to my wife she would be all excited about the discount, and putting one over on the clerk. It's all a matter of perspective.

I feel for you sister. I don't know if my ego could've handled that today.:( Treat yourself to a massage. You know you're not nearly that old.:)

Kind of young. I think it was an automatic response; every Tuesday and Thursday the store is swamped with Blue Hairs, I don't think she even saw me.

they have senior discounts at the grocery?
I've never seen one at Jewel, but now I try to avoid them. If you raise the price on the item every single time i go in, i will notice. YAY for Super Target.

You know you're old when they stop carding you for a margarita. You know you're really old when you get handed the Senior's menu at Denny's. You know you're really, really old when... umm what was I talking about? :D

Young people cannot tell age worth a damn. Remember when you were in high school and you thought all your teachers were old and then you found out they were 28 at the time? All the cashier knew was you might be over thirty. Take the money and run, with a smile. Nowall the people that came up to my wife when our daughter was young and told her what a lovely grand child she had, those people were in DANGER.

funny story, about 5 years ago I took my daughter to ponderosa for dinner, they gave me the senior discount. The next day I was buying a can of lighter fluid at walmart and this cashier who was maybe 10 years my senior carded me......I just started laughing....and told her about my first senior discount the night before. She was apologetic...and explained she had to ask for id or they would fire her.
