Feelin’ Young

When The Curmudgeon and his mother went out to breakfast recently and he ordered pancakes and a side of turkey sausage off the restaurant’s main menu the waitress looked at him and said “It’s too bad you’re too young for this, but…oh, I can do it for you anyway.”  With that, she thumbed forward through the menu to the “55 and older” page and repeated “I’ll do it for you anyway” while pointing to the same combination for three dollars less.

Whereupon The Curmudgeon informed her that he is, in fact, older than 55 and is actually 60 years of age.  She expressed disbelief and declared “No way.”

Whereupon two things happened.

First, she earned herself a 60 percent tip.

And second, she left her customer, beaming a smile a mile wide, with a bounce in his step and feeling especially young.
