Senior Discount

Look Carefully...

Yesterday I bought some bottles of ale at BevMo to take to my brew club meeting.  The style of the month was pale ales and I wanted to take a couple samples of ale, so I grabbed a bomber of Bear Republic’s XP Pale Ale and a bomber of Anderson Valley’s Poleeko Gold Pale Ale and headed up to check out.  I got carded!  Woohoo!  I thanked the girl (well, she wasn’t a girl, but based on my age, she could have been my daughter:), paid for my ales and headed out the door.  Life was good!

Today, I headed into town to grab a quick lunch, ordered, and was filling up my soda cup when I heard my tech guy politely arguing with the counter girl (same “girl” definition as above:) that his lunch cost more than mine did, even though he ordered exactly the same thing.  Come to find out she had (unasked for) given me the senior discount!  Woohoo!  I saved 50 cents!

But, damn, this was both ends of the spectrum, two days apart!  I had to laugh:)

Life is good!
