Mixed blessings.
I stopped at McDonald's the other night for dinner and ordered one of my regular combinations from the dollar menu. The total was less than the usual amount, so I naturally suspected that the girl misunderstood my order (this happens to me a lot).

I scanned the receipt to figure out the reason for the reduced cost, and discovered they had charged me only 69 cents for the small Coke. I mentioned this to the girl, who helpfully explained that she had rung me up for a "senior Coke."

For the record, I don't qualify for that category even by AARP's generous standard (50), and won't for several years.
