Has nothing to do with the government.....private business owner exercising his right to run his business the way he wants. Probably got tired of people asking for it. hammer

Just curious, does this mean you don't shop or dine anywhere that does not offer a senior citizen discount?

Or do you just take offense at the business owner spelling it out in advance? Not looking for an argument, just looking to clarify.

Guys, it was a joke ok? Just kidding.bang But I have seen signs that don't offer Senior discount.
Don't take everything so seriously.
No Obama or the current or any other administration (as far as I know) has nothing to do with offering a discount.
It's up to private business's

Geeeeezzzzzz.....sorry

God Bless

The sign, just like the 30-06 & 30-07 signs will turn me around.

In restaurants I always ask for a senior discount, if they give me one I add it to the tip.

I've never quite understood the senior discount thing. Young families with all of the cost of getting started probably could use it more than most seniors.

Senior discounts were meant to be used to encourage those on a fixed income/Social Security to shop/eat at establishments. It is a nice gesture on behalf of business owners that understand fixed income patrons are loyal steady customers usually.

A lot of places do have the kids eat free on certain days.

I kind of find it a little offensive. I am young myself but always opened doors for ladies and older folk helped take there groceries out or mow there yard for nothing and of course be a fishin buddy when they were going out by themselves just because that is how I was raised . I wouldn't eat at that damn resturaunt if you paid me to .. sign is just flat out rude .
