Most days I stop at a Dunkin’ Donuts for a cup of coffee on my way to work. Its a store I frequent and the people there don’t have to ask what I want. Medium coffee regular. I walk in, say hello, pay for the coffee, say see ya later and I’m out the door.
Recently I went in and a new young woman was behind the counter. Asked what I would like, I told her. I gave her my debit card, she charged me $1.89. Usually its $2.02. I didn’t think much of it right away and walked out to my car. Put my cup into the cup holder, and started driving. At the next traffic light while stopped I looked at the reciept. “senior discount”
This bugged me all day. All of the other servers at the Dunkin Donuts store saw me as a ….. regular… wait. Normal… no, um…. Not a senior. Do I look old? I’m only 56. My hair is mostly gray. But…. Why all of a sudden….
The next day another server charged me $2.02. I was happy.
The next day after, The young woman stated, “with that card you can get a free donut”.
I have an AARP card. It was sent to me a couple years ago. You just kinda get it after you turn 50. So I filled it out. You can get discounts on stuff. Why not. She saw it in my wallet when I opened. it!
That was it. Not that I look older!!!!
