So Mrs. Fetched called me at work today with a list of things to pick up at the grocery store on the way home. (She swears I forgot to get the shrimp, I swear she didn’t tell me. But I digress.) I grab the stuff and stumble across a checkout that’s both staffed and has nobody waiting behind the person buying one bottle of wine — hooray!

The other shoe was soon to drop. After ringing up the total, the little twerp at the register asks me: “Do you qualify for the senior discount?”


I wonder if he’s getting a commission for every guy who goes back to aisle 18 to get the Grecian Formula goop.


  1. Oh that had to hurt...but if it helps, when you get to that age you want every discount you can get....lol. Enjoy the shrimp.

  2. I'll bet. Mrs. Fetched's late uncle had a baseball cap that said "I love my senior discount."


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
