My wife and I were in the grocery store, and the pie-faced youth who was ringing us up said, "Are either of you over 55?"
My brave and honest wife, chirped, "Why yes, sonny. I am." (I'm close to 55, but not quite)
He said, "Well on Thursdays, people over 55 get a 10 percent discount."
Unlike my boss, who was insulted when a similar moment occured, I was elated. From now on, Thursday is grocery day.
