    I was sent an general email and one of the articles displayed was about senior discounts. I think it is useful information.

    Senior Discounts

    Keep this list - - - and Send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.

    As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told
