Getting older all the time
I joke about senior moments but I had a real one today. And yesterday, too.
After I walked yesterday morning, I went into Arby's to get a soda. The lady at the cash register said it would be 53¢ and I thought, "Wow, that's pretty cheap."
So after I walked this morning, I stopped in at Arby's again to get a drink. I took a dollar bill with me and left my purse in the car. I told the girl at the register that I wanted a medium soda, and she said that it would be $1.55 (or whatever).
"I didn't bring in that much money," I said. "How much would a small drink be?"
"$1.26," she told me.
I started to go after more money but she said, "No, wait -- I'll give you a senior drink, and it will be just 53¢."
It reminds me of the first time I ever had a clerk refer to me as a lady -- as in, "This lady needs some help with ..." That was a shocking experience also.
