What part of “senior discount” don’t you get?

Perfect for seniors who:

  • aren’t sensitive about revealing their age
  • want to take no chances when it comes to discounts
  • don’t mind not getting a senior discount on their senior discount cap

Coming soon: “Kick me, I’m old” T-shirt.

Special thanks to an anonymous Reading with Scissors fan for contributing this.
