January 15, 2013 Confusing
Today I took a jpg file to Mike's Camera to have it enlarged and printed for an art show. It would only take about an hour for them to accomplish this.
Since I was in the area, I went to the ARC Thrift Store where we buy flannel shirts for Clyde. I mean, really, the most expensive one was 6.99, whereas the ones I got him at Walmart last year were on clearance for $5, but originally they were $25. So, good deal, right?
These shirts are like new, and heavy and warm. I wasn't paying attention, but the two on the left have pink tags, and the one on the right has a yellow tag. (Like I would have known the difference anyway.)
At the cash register, the clerk rings it up and tells me that it's a total of $20 and change. Then she looks at me and asks "Are you a senior?"
Now, I am a senior at some places and at some places, I'm not. But nobody asks me if I'm a senior. So, I was confused. "Does it make a difference?" I asked her.
"Yes," she replied.
"Ok," I said. "I'm 64, does that count?"
"Yes", she replied, and guess what? I got 50% off on the shirt with the yellow ticket!
I asked her if I would get 50% off anytime I bought something with a yellow tag, but apparently that's not how it works. Somedays it's yellow tags, other days it's a different color. So, I guess it's random, if you're a senior and you go shopping there. You just have to guess which color tag is 50% for that day.
