Thoughts while shaving

by Jim Tierney

Are you embarrassed asking for a Senior Discount?  Face it, AARP has you marked a
senior at age 50 and floods you with offers to
join until you finally give in and they send you a magazine for the rest of your life
with lots of “good stuff” in it, especially
helpful health hints. Being a senior aint so bad. Seniors in high school and college
have no problem with it. Most senior
discounts are 10% but some are more. McDonalds will give you a $1.69 SMALL coffee for
80 cents. You never know where the discounts
are unless you ask so don’t be shy. Maybe you don’t think of places like Chilli’s,
IHOP, KMART.  These may be small discounts but
hotels and upscale restaurants can be sizable. If you’re concerned about them seeing
your not so flattering picture on an ID,
don’t worry, they don’t usually ask for an ID unless you look fourteen..
