I think I need to color my hair. Maybe that would make me look like I don't automatically qualify for a senior discount???
I called my airconditioning person to set up an appointment to check out the heating for winter. I noticed a clause for senior discount. I asked her if I was old enough for one and she told me I was already on the plan.
Sheesh. Do I look elderly? I wanted to ask for it!

About 5 years ago I took my grown son out for lunch and paid the bill. I was thinking about what I paid and told DS that I didn't get charged enough--He read the receipt and said "Mom you got the senior discount" I was embarrassed, but DS thought it was a real neat surprise. We had a great lunch and didn't have to pay more after I talked to the clerk.LOL
I always have to ask for the senior discount. I feel happy about that. I also have had my BF and a hair dresser ask who I had doing my hair coloring. I don't color my hair. What you see is what nature gave to me.

I kept a senior discount receipt for a long time...
Son was 16 and we had gone to pickup a Mustang for him from stepson. We stopped at Golden Corral in Rice Texas - yes I name names! We all three got the same steak from the grill (I do not like Golden Corral buffet at all!). You order...you pay...you sit down...waitress brings your steak. About halfway through the meal, I glanced at the receipt DH had placed on the table. I picked it up. Hmmm...one steak cost more than the other two. I brought it to DHs attention. When the waitress came around he asked her why the price difference. She looked at the receipt...looked at my 65 year old husband...looked at me and smiled. "Two of you got the senior discount."
I was FORTY-SIX!!
Advantage (or disadvantage) of having a teenage boy at the register!!! My hair is still au naturel...a few grey hairs that shine like a fiber optic lamp when the sun hits it.
My daddy was correct - You are judged by the company you keep.
Sherry that is so funny. Years ago when our kids were still in school, my DH and a co-worker who lived close would share rides to work. One morning my car was in the shop and the kids and I rode with DH to pick up his co-worker. After they got out of the car the co-worker told DH he had a pretty teenage daughter. My husband hasn't gotten over that yet, he's only 3 years older than me.
