Today I ran out to the local supermarket for a few items. This supermarket has the big screen that shows each item and total. I am looking at the screen and I see "senior discount". As I am reading the screen I'm thinking "this must have been for the woman before me", but no it's my items, so what to I do? Blurt out "hey, are you giving me senior discount?" and then whip my sunglasses off. Of course I said it jokingly and the lady behind me is laughing her butt off (she was about 10 older years than me)-she is rolling. The clerk, who was about 20, gets all red-faced and said "On Tuesdays, anyone who looks over 30 is offered the discount"-yeah, quick thinking on her part. I'll have to stop next week and see if they do it again. Yes, my ego was deflated over $0.24 savings!
