I just got the senior discount at Wendy's

I ordered a salad and a diet soda and the clerk advised me the soda was free because I was a senior. I humbly accepted, but how old do you have to be to qualify for the discount?By the way I am 58 and thought I looked pretty good. I guess i need advise on lifting and firming products.

Some discounts are at age 55. I'm always thrilled to get the senior discount! Enjoy it and don't worry about your age.

Taco Bell does that, too. I was shocked or should I say alarmed that they gave it to me without asking. Of course the clerks are 16.

I'm guessing 28 to 30.

Wendy's has a senior discount???

You can get senior coffee at McDonald's for 50 cents.

Thank you! I didn't know Wendy's offered any discounts.

Wow, I need to start asking about these as I am 58, nearly 59. Some of my local theaters say it is 62.

White Castle and Dunkin Donuts have senior discounts also.

Smithfield Barbeque, Golden Corral and Bojangle's Chicken in my area offer senior discounts. Didn't know about Wendy's.

The first time someone did that to me.....I was less than 55 and complained to the management at the store. They don't need to insinuate!!!

Take no offense...some places it's 50. I'm 55 and glad to accept any discount I am given.

I remember feeling so defensive about the whole "senior" thing when I was bombarded with AARP material shortly before my 50th, but I very quickly got over it.

I get a senior drink at Taco Bell and Wendy's also. I think Burger King and McD. give a discount. I don't mind at all. Over the weeks it adds up! Sometimes my hubby and I go to Taco Bell after church and only pay about $3 together. I am the daughter of depression era parents and I enjoy getting a bargain.

I could never call the management on something that petty; life has too many big problems. Even women in their 20's or 30's sometimes can't figure out a person's age; to a teen or twenty some year old, everyone over 30 looks old to them.

Take it and enjoy it, we have earned these discounts! Love my Kroger, get 5% off on Tuesday.

Love me, love my rescues!!!!!

So as to not hurt any one's feeling, a Wendy's employee is not supposed to offer a discount. The customer must ask for the discount.

The first time I was asked I was in shock.

Then, to make it worse, one time the welcome guy at Walmart asked me if I wanted a motorized cart. I could not believe it.

To keep it in perspective, a little boy once asked me if we had cars when I was a kid. I was 35 at the time.

(We did, it's just that we peddled like The Flintstones).

Just kidding about that part !

Just recently I got my first final arrangements letter, asking if I prefer cremation or burial.

Next time I get one I'm going to write "Surprise Me" and mail it back, just to be funny.

here most are either 50 or 55 most 55 and they aren't suppose to ask but I think some think they are doing people a favor and saving them money. You have to remember most clerks in these places are 18 to 23 usually and anyone over 30 is old to them.

I remember we went to a restaurant and my DH was trying to be helpful to a couple in front of us waiting to be seated. He said to the man seeing all his grey hair, don't forget to ask for your senior discount. The man turned around, gave him a glare and said I am only 47. I keep telling DH not to say things like this, can't tell anyone age anymore. We had my dad with us and he of course got a discount and use to laugh and tell the clerks he was almost on his second go round and should get a double discount.

I will never guess an age when someone asks me how old do you think I am, learned that lesson from DH but if I have to, I guess very very low and they are so happy, can see the smiles. DH said you made a friend for life, lol

lol, I know I shouldn't laugh but boy do I feel your pain. I just now use the discount at the theater. Today I went with my almost three year old twins for speech testing and when they came out they asked if I was the grandmother, I was thinking I used to be taken for their mom, what in the heck has happened! :)
