Even when you win, you lose. Sorry, but there is no way I can manipulate this into a Perfect Moment. I could easily dub this a horrific moment. If you can somehow find the silver lining in this, please let me know.
The other day, when I was so happily getting my pictures printed in large size, I also bought some other things at the store. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just regular foodstuffs. I bought some milk. Plain, white, 2% milk (don’t judge). The horrific thing is, when I got home I scanned the receipt to ensure that I got my bonus points–yeah, probably should have looked at it in the store. Actually, based on what happened, I am very happy that I did not look at the receipt. In fact, I wish I had never looked at the receipt.
You see, they gave me a senior’s discount. I was under the impression that seniors were people who were 65 and over. I am only 47. I am not even in my 50’s. I am not a senior. It’s fantastic to receive a discount, but I think my pride is worth more than 85 cents. Was it just because I was there in the early afternoon when people are supposed to be working? Did she just make a mistake on the cash register? Does the scraggly staycation beard make me look old–I’ll never go without shaving again. Argggggh! Do I look so old?
I asked if there was a silver lining, fully aware that there was a horrible pun involved in that line, but I am too shaken to change it. I feel like Charlie Brown leaning against Lucy’s Psychiatry stand with no nickel in my pocket.
I don’t know if I ever want to shop there again. I have a lot of Optimum Points though.
