Today, a 60 year old veteran hit on me by pointing to his white hair and saying: "Just because there's snow on the roof doesn't mean there isn't a fire down below." Then he told me vets eat free at Cracker Barrel. FML

Bex98 tells us more.

Hey, OP here. This actually happened last year when I was 16 years old, and I was broke as hell and almost agreed. But then his wife showed up and he pretended he didn't know me XD

Sounds like a good deal, clearly you're missing out. :P

Cracker Barrel sounds pretty shady... He could have meant his ass.

Free meals at Waffle House would have been an even better deal.

Yeah, he sounds like the kind of old man I want to be... He's still got it!

I think you might be looking into that statement a bit too much... then again the food probably tastes the same.

Cracker Barrel is a southern restaurant where old people tend to flock to because of it's home styled food and country feel. The food really isn't too bad, but I can't imagine anyone having a date there if they're below 50.

Yeah, I may be judging Cracker Barrel too harshly. I've only been to one and it wasn't great at all, but it was in a shitty neighborhood so I'll give Cracker Barrel the benefit of the doubt.

My husband and I are in our twenties and he loves it. I've never been fond of it, but living in Kentucky, it is hard to miss one!

Cracker Barrel is a great place for breakfast and lunch for sure though. If you haven't tried it, you should!

I love that place! When I visit Texas I make sure to stop there for dinner. The food is delicious and the service is great.

It's not just in the south. I'm in upstate my and there's a bunch up here

And it worked didn't it? Clearly this guy is a legend.

60 year old or not, this guy gets bitches.

I hate it when old guys hit on me but I have to admit that's a good pickup line.

There will come a day when you will miss it.

I work at a Cracker Barrel and vets don't eat free there. Lol

Whatever girl, this fool is buying? Point me to the buffett

Depends on the Cracker Barrel; some do offer free meals to vets with a VA card for proof. Some Applebee's do, too. Lots of other places offer discounts.

At ours, there's a discount. I used to date an Army ranger. And yeah, we went almost every Wednesday...I f-cking love those chicken and dumplings. LOL

I know ours doesn't even do a military discount. Which is odd since we're so close to an army base. But every now and then one of our managers pays for the meals of military men/women. But our hashbrown casserole is my favorite thing ever. Lol
