Why, thank you - - -

Dropped 2 comforters off at the cleaners. I don't know about you, but I never ask for a discount (for being a senior). The charge was $18. each so thought I'd squirm and mention it.

"Is that the senior rate?"

"No, you have to be 60 for a discount."

At first I thought she was joking - looked at her and she was serious. "I'm almost 63."

That sweet young lady gave me a better discount than any old senior rate - smiled all the way to DQ.

Actually, she did discount it $3.60 I'm liking being old.

What a nice compliment that lady gave you.
I've just got back from Barcelona, where the seniors discount doesn't kick in until 65.

Welcome,Dabrah.Places vary here - most are 65 - and that's not too far away for me:)

You are too cute!! I'm friends w/ a senior and we go out often, she never asks for a discount though some do give it to her and she nows nothing of it. I'll have to tell her aging has its benefits.
Hope you enjoyed that DQ.

DQ was delicious, Kim.
