....this was a bit unsettling. I was eating lunch at a buffet place I often go to, and waited on by a nice young man who is an excellent server, and was surprised when I noticed my bill was a couple of bucks cheaper than I expected. Turns out I got the senior citizen discount. The fuck? I am only 53, and most people don't believe me when I tell them that (one of the few somewhat ''nice'' benefits of having Kallman Syndrome). Granted, my hair is quite solidly gray (okay there's a /teeny/ bit of white in there), and the face is kinda weathered, but seriously, this is the first time in my life anyone ever implied I was, uh, like nearly 15 years older than I am. A senior citizen's discount? I argued with the little brat but he said screw it, I am a regular, so I am getting it regardless of whether or not I want it. I feel so fucking weird about this.
