The Age Thing

Do I really look old?

Why do I keep getting AARP invitations?

Is this a practical joke? Ok, who sent in my name?

I hope I don’t look old enough to be a senior citizen.

Let’s be clear about this, I’m not.

I went shopping in Belk, on a Wednesday, got to the cash register and a teenage clerk said, “Today is senior citizen day and you qualify for an additional 10% off your purchase.”

I replied, smiling, “Actually I’m not a senior citizen but if you’ll give me the discount, I’ll take it.”

She didn’t. No apology either.

I’m still insulted…


Any one else feel "young". Let me hear from you- aitken.helen@gmail.com

Have a great day.
