Are you enrolled in the Tuesday club?

February 26th, 2009 at 04:58 am

Little miss sunshine at the register asked me this yesterday as I was checking out at the store register...ummm...Tuesday Club? I naively asked...and she said, yes, for our customers 55 and older....


Cmon guys....I dyed my hair recently, Ive lost a few pounds...Im a little tired....but do I look 55 when I am only 47??????????????????????????????

I smiled, and said that, no, I am quite a few years away from the club requirements....but I would take the discount if she wanted to give it to such luck.

Sigh...I guess there are worse things that she could have asked. Just none come to mind right now. lol

The hubs job is slowing down and I am concerned that he will be pushed to more part-time hours shortly. They slow down during tax-season every year, but I would be foolish to believe that is what this is. The hub works for a big-rig repair shop...and I know this slow down is from the economy. I have just considered us fortunate until now to have sidestepped the cuts many have experienced for some time now. Hopefully, this wont last too long....

Otherwise, life is good. (even if I am looking senior these days...gads.)

    It could be just that they ask anyone appearing older than 40 that questions. Kind of like being carded from buying wine coolers when one is obviously older than 21.

    I am sure you look 43!

    Don't you remember when you were very young that anyone over 40 looked old to you? I do. I had high school teachers that I thought were "old" and they were still in their early 20's.

    That said, the biggest compliment I ever got was when a guy that did not know me, told my first husband that he had a good looking daughter. (me) I loved it. My first husband was 7 years older than me.

    Little Miss Sunshine hasn't learned proper etiquette yet. There are 3 questions you never ask:
    1) anything about senior citizen discounts
    2) when the due date is (might not be one)
    3) why aren't they smiling (might be in middle of a personal tragedy)
    Asking for id for liquor or cigarettes is always ok Smile

    I had a new employee start in my department and in talking to her and getting to know her she made the comment that she thought we were about the same age. I didn't think anything of it until a few days later when she told us she was 49.....I am only 37!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Needless to say that didn't go over very well.

    She wasn't saying you look old she was learning her 50 year old family/friends look young.
