"Working class hero discount..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen (Shabbat Saturday's)

James "kimo" Rosen is back blogging about his favorite topic, "Discounts!"


Why do Kids and Seniors get discounts?
Many times you will see signs at restaurants, "Kids eat free!" If I owned a restaurant I would charged kids 50% more since they are such hard maintenance. They make messes at the table and in the restrooms and many times running around the restaurants disturbing others. The servers have to try and have patience with the kids or the parents get mad. Kids are really some of the highest maintenance and to give them a discount is ridiculous, the most ridiculous discount is that if your child can sit on your lap, they fly free, just don't be the person sitting next to the mom with twins, it will be one long flight.

Seniors after a lifetime of saving money and no longer driving seem to warrant diascounts on everything from early bird specials to movies, theatre and public transportation. Seniors are the ones who have enough money to do those things since they do not blow their money on partying.

It's time that discounts be given to the general hard working person who struggles paycheck to paycheck...


Next time you decide to go out maybe the Seniors can babysit the kids for free while the rest of us get some much needed attention. Wouldn't you love to see the sign, working class hero discount, Kids and seniors 50% more.

via Facebook;" We seniors are rich because we look for discounts, count our change and ask for specail treatment. If we didn't do it-who would look out for us??"
