"When I'm 64..." Yikes!!!
I am still a long ways from the golden years that the Beatles sang about, but lately I must be looking old, because on occasion at stores and restaurants I get asked if I am a senior which qualifies me for a 10% discount. I am absolutely floored when asked this question. In fact this evening I stopped for a bite to eat at a Department store on my way home from work and the waitress did not ask me the question, she just gave me the discount!! I did not really think about it until on my way home. I thought, man I must look like a senior. Unreal. Anyone else have this experience or feel like they are being rushed to the rocking chair?
Please enjoy it! My mom passed away at 64, which to me, felt awfully young. Grab all the discounts you can get and smile!!!!
Nobody even thinks about carding me anymore, and you're supposed to card people who look like they *might* be under 35. I won't be 35 for three more years....

I miss being carded now that I'm going to be 43 in September. Proud to say that I was last seriously carded when I was 36! The eye doctor is the only person who has made me feel that I might be getting old - at every annual eye exam he now says 'since you're over 40, you might need reading glasses soon'. My college roommate had to get bifocals this year. My other friend who is a year older than me has had to use reading glasses for a couple of years now.
Enjoy being whatever age you are. My co-workers wife died suddenly this past Monday night. She was just 56 and had become a grandmother less than a month ago. Along with her husband and granddaughter, she left behind 5 adult children and 3 kids-in-law and numerous siblings, nieces, nephews and friends. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about her.
Happy birthday Ladskater!!!

I love using my senior discount, especially at the movies!!! Saves money to help pay for the inflated price of the popcorn....... 42
I didn't know it was under 35; I thought it was 27! Only one shopping/eating place that I frequent downtown requires carding, even if you are going to the alcohol-free section, so it rarely happens to me.
