A new low

Dear Mom,

I was just asked if I qualify for the senior discount.

"Does 50 qualify?", I asked.

"55", the cashier answered.

That didn't make me feel any better. And yet I smiled and acted like it didn't really bother me that she asked so I wouldn't HURT HER FEELINGS.

Everybody better be nice to me for the rest of the day.

Love,
Kim

My husband still acts shocked when people ask him and yes, he DOES qualify!

Remember, anybody over 40 looks old to the teens and 20-somethings.

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...

Unfortunately, the "helpful" woman was a good 15-20 years older than I am!
