ENjoy the ANNOY! Looking at young @ 27 will just increase your chances of looking young @ 40! Just smile sweetly, say "thank you, sir!" & enjoy the moment. Don't be annoyed. Believe me, it is MUCH worse NOT being carded when you ask for your senior discount!!!
No, the S&S card is coded with your DOB so they will know you are of age. As for getting carded, appreciate it now young lady for there may be a time when you will be asked if you want the senior discount, and you aren't! <G>
