Shocking!

Ok, something truly horrible and shocking happened today.  I am shocked and appalled to say the least.   Those of you with tender hearts may want to sit down for this.  Ok, I'll just say it....... Today I stopped at the pharmacy at noon and.........oh dear, this is harder than I thought.........they gave me the "seniors discount".  (Shudder). The SENIORS DISCOUNT,!!
I mean how could this happen?  The best explanation I can think of is the cashier was seriously vision impaired.  I went back to work deep in despair.  I immediately went to the washroom mirror to look at the wrinkles around my eyes!  I mean she didn't even ASK,   .she just gave it to me
And it wasn't like I was buying geritol or Depends!  How could this happen to me??      I ask you, my lovely followers, does this look like a woman who should qualify for a seniors discount??

  2. Oh. My. Glad I was done eating my snack when I read this. Apparently you entered the pharmacy during peak white hair hours!

  3. Har har, don't take it personal just take the discount. We know you are a beautiful young sexy broad so it must have been someone not paying attention.

  5. Oh my goodness!! This mid 50s age is hard because "senior" is different everywhere. Some places you can be 55 others 60 etc.

    I officially "became" senior when we moved to a 55+ apartment complex three years ago. Also I will become the big 60 a week from this Sunday. AHHHHHHH ! YIKES !

    I'm glad that I don't look it. Unless....you look REALLY close and see the little wrinkles. :) Oh, and I have two little clumps of white hair in the back of my head. LOL
    Well I guess I can't pretend forever.
    Anyway, gotta run...Take care my friend.

  6. You are way to young to be getting the senior discount but those damn kids think anyone 30 is senior. I work in a college town they all think I am their grandmother's age.

  9. I would have been in shock too. Goodness, you are still a spring chick!!! It must have been someone who was 20 something, my kids think people who are 30 are ancient!!
    But think of how much money you saved!!

  11. Assuming you are a senior is like being carded buying wine when you are 30. But a discount of 20%! Don't rock the boat. It is usually 5-to-10-percent off.

  13. That's what happens when you go shopping on senior discount days. Good practice for when you become a senior. You could save enough money for your next bottle of wine and yes, you're still a pretty and sexy broad.
    Hugs,

  15. I wanted to say, "Now that's funny!" but I couldn't because at this moment I have on a facial mask hoping that even though I do qualify for a senior discount, maybe they will make a mistake and I'll have to be the one to ask for it! Smile, realize that the cashier probably thinks anyone over 18 is old and then laugh all the way to the bank!

  16. HA! First time that happened I almost fell over dead. It grows on you, though. Embrace it! That's extra money for wool.
