Before long, you’ll be considered a senior citizen at about the same time you’re a senior in high school.
It used to be 65 was retirement age, and was also a good indicator of “senior” status. Whatever that is.
Over the years the milestone age of senior citizenship has been gradually lowered to 55 and even 50, which is the minimum age for AARP membership. (Strange that such an organization would be courting the “youth” market.)
Even as a thirtysomething, I don't feel safe from the ever-broadening designation of "seniority."
My question is, does anyone really want to order off the senior discount menu that badly? Personally, I can wait.
Americans are living longer now than ever before. Shouldn’t we be raising the minimum senior age?
Well, I’m off to bingo. You young people behave yourselves. Keep that music down, and don't smoke marijuana cigarettes or have the sex.
