I visited one store after another. At each checkout I asked the same question. "Do you have any discounts or specials today?"
The shocker came when I visited the last store and unwittingly asked the same question. The cashier asked if I was a "Senior". I laughed, shaking my head no. Out of curiosity I questioned at what age they considered a person to be a senior. When asked if I was 50 I felt the blood flush through my face, searing my scalp.
