Pickles (2/22/09)


Even though my grandfather never referred to himself as old, he did take full advantage of a particular senior discount. It wasn’t for movie tickets (he didn’t go that often) or for bus rides (he drove most places), but rather for his medium decaf cream and sugar coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. He was so pleased with the discount that he asked for and received his very own card, which he brandished with glee during each and every transaction. I don’t know how many years he had the card before passing away, but it’s hard for me to remember (or even imagine) him standing at a Dunkin’ Donuts cash register and not adding “senior discount” to the end of his order.
