Today, in a coffee shop, I purchased two doughnuts and cup of coffee, a regular order which I've bought many times before.

<p>FML becasue someone thought OP was 5 years older than they are. That bothers some people.</p>

And tbh there was many, many seniors who were so picky about getting their discount, it just became a habit. I don't think it's fair to say why the discount was issued, and for OP to assume they suddenly looked much older or something. I

Well maybe they're going to make the senior discount an every time thing for you since you're a regular customer? $1 off an order that you get all the time adds up ?

And you wonder why there's a stigma about asking a female their age. I wish I can roll my eyes harder.

<p>Just take the win.</p>

This would be fyl if you where 30-40, they only slightly misgauged your age and you got a discount, what's so bad about that?

This seems like a win to mez
