Today I have suffered an incredible and terrible indignity. Horrible!
I went to a pastors luncheon meeting at the local Golden Corral. Being a buffet, you pay as you enter and then find your seat. As I sat down and looked at the receipt, I could not believe what I saw! It said: “senior lunch discount.”
What? Just what was the girl at the cash register thinking? I happened to see a sign that said discounts for age 60 and over upon notification. So why would I get it? Why would the befuddled visually-challenged young woman behind the register give me this discount without even asking? Even though I had a birthday last week, I am FAR from 60 years old!
So, why do restaurants offer these discounts to older people? I think it is because they think that older folks are shriveling up and wasting away … that they can’t eat nearly so much.
So, my mission was clear. I decided they needed to be punished for their disrespectful indignity. There was one thing to do – eat in such a fashion that they wished I’d never shown up!
Goal accomplished! So take THAT Golden Corral! And train your young women to have better eyes for youth and vigor!
I looked at the stock market prices today – expecting to see a severe drop in Golden Corral values … but it is actually a private company … a poorer private company.
