I’m guilty. I’m a thief – specifically a cradle robber.
I’ve written before about how my wife can be sitting at work, and someone will come up and ask to speak with a librarian. When she tells them she’s a librarian, they answer her with “No, I mean a REAL librarian.” Because they think she looks like she’s still an undergraduate student. Half of the time, she still gets carded for buying booze, even though she’s closer to 40 than 30.
Not so with me. I can count on ONE HAND the number of times I’ve been carded in my whole life! Yesterday we went back to Joplin (3rd time is a charm, right?) to try to get a set of crystal wine glasses that weren’t broken, chipped, or otherwise less than usable.
Since we were there at lunch time, we stopped at a buffet to eat. After we got our food and sat down, she started laughing. I asked her what was so funny, and she said, “Look at the receipt!”
Items on the receipt – one buffet with drink. One SENIOR buffet with drink, no charge for the drink. Total discount over $2. To qualify for a SENIOR buffet, you usually have to be 55 y/o or greater. I’m 46.
The clerk must have thought I was having lunch with my daughter, or something.
