Twice now at the same restraunt I have been told that I was given a senior discount. I am not even 50 yet. My business partner gets upset because he is 2 years older but does not get it.

Told him that I was going to call him baby face from now on.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

A senior discount and you're in your 40's? The only thing I know of that would make someone so young look so old is owning a trucking business!

'Flag' on number 00

That is another few emojis we need. A ref throwing a flag and an emoji waiving a 'BS' flag.

Well to be completely honest I am only 4 months from ther half century mark. The white Santa beard might have something to do with it too.

Happens to me from time to time as well. First time I felt guilty about not being entitled to it and spoke up about correcting it. BIG MISTAKE. 15 minutes later, still waiting. Now I just smile and say thanks.

If you can get the discount, any discount, always take it!

I miss my active duty military discounts. TBH though, since I tend to keep my hair in a generally military look, I still get the discount a lot of times where I am from.
