Can we get a discount please?

Over the last several months, we have taken many trips into town as a family for different reasons-groceries, errands, etc. Occasionally, these trips coincide with suppertime & we choose to eat out (Luke is not as pleasant of a little guy when he gets hungry & let's face it-I am not as pleasant of a mother when I get hungry :) This is not an abnormal event-eating out with one's family, but there is one thing that I notice every single time...

there is rarely anyone else there or if there is, they are old!

Why? Well, I am glad that you asked! Luke likes to eat supper around 5 p.m. which is when many of the older people like to congregate too.

I am sure that we are probably a little bit of an odd site to see at that time for the people who work there, but it is better than having a fussy child on our hands while trying to finish up our errands. It does all leave me wondering though...

Is there any way we could qualify for a "senior discount" since we're always eating with them? ;)

I wanted to say thank you for your comment. I am sorry you had failed adoption. I can only imagine what that must feel like.

That's a great idea!

When school is in, we try to eat before 6. With all the seniors.

I SHOULD ask for a discount!
