Over 55? Discounts?

When I was shopping recently at Harris Teeter I didn't know whether to be offended or jump across the counter and hug the cashier for giving me a seniors discount.  I never really thought that being 55 was considered a senior but, for some retail stores and restaurants, they offer discounts at 55 with an AARP membership and some without - you just need to show identification that you are 55 or older.  

I was talking to a colleague of mine this morning that is a year younger than I am (over 55) and he sent me a text of the line of people at Chick fil A and I asked him if it was seniors day, he didn't know, so I looked online and found out that Chick fil A offers 10% off to over 55 at some locations or a free refillable drink.  Then I looked for a list of places offering discounts and some require an AARP membership (which I have...smirk). 

We all work hard for our money and we've earned every penny of that discount, I say embrace the discount.  It's not that we're old after all!!

Hi June- what's hard is when you begin to get AARP info in the mail when you're not even 55.  I don't feel my age but the discounts are nice.

It is always nice to receive a seniors discount. Sometimes, you have to ask for one.
