Would you like to be a Senior?

Would you like to be a Senior?

So, after we (my roommate and I) went to WallyWorld for some grocery shopping, and came home and rested, I remembered a couple things I forgot.  And a couple my roomie forgot.

I took it upon myself to return, this time to the truncated WallyWorld, instead of the Mondo one.  En route, there was an Albertson’s.  Smaller still, and perhaps less crowded than WalMart.  I went there.

After picking up most of the forgotten items (note to self – make a list!) I arrived at the register for check-out.  The nice lady with the extremely high, grating voice asked me, “Would you like to be a Senior?”  I didn’t quite understand her and asked her to repeat the question.  It was still difficult to understand, both in speech and context.  Then she explained, “It’s Senior Discount Day, are you a Senior?” 

Now, I’ve not been a Senior since 1970, so I think I qualified.  And I wasn’t insulted when she further explained one must be 55 to qualify.

I saved over $7.00 on a $28.00 order!  It’s good to be the King – or, at least a Senior!

(Naw – nothing like that happened – I’d need more than $28.00 for that!)  🙂

  2. Since I got prematurely grey by 50, Some places started giving me a discount before I was really old enough. Discounts are a good thing.

  5. Only problem with the discounts is that they won’t let you ‘stack’ them – I might actually have them paying me if they did!
