I love it.
If you are a senior you will understand this one, if you deal with seniors, this should help you understand them a little better, and if you are not a senior yet. God willing, someday you will be.

The 2.99 Special
We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'seniors' special'
was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.

'Sounds good,' my wife said.
'But I don't want the eggs.'

'Then, I'll have to charge you $3.49
because you're ordering a la carte,'
the waitress warned her.

'You mean I'd have to pay
for not taking the eggs?'
my wife asked incredulously.

'YES!' stated the waitress.

'I'll take the special then,'
my wife said.

'How do you want your eggs?'
the waitress asked.
'Raw and in the shell,' my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
WE'VE been around the block more than once!

    Yeah....just because some is old enough to be a Senior does not, by any means, mean that they are stupid!!

    That could have been me, except I probably would have broken the eggs and had a "mess" to clean up!

    My mom who is a senior got a kick out of this when I read it to her. Thanks for the giggle for both of us.

Have a good weekend coming up. :)
