Two years ago this month I wrote about getting a senior discount at a movie theater, but since the theater was in The Villages, I told myself that it was a Villages thing…they just assume anyone in The Villages must be a senior. However, this week when it happened again in Ocala, I lost that excuse. At least we have an extra $4.00!
On January 26th, my college roommate, Barbara, posted the following status update on her Facebook page:
Friend my age and I were given senior citizen tickets at movie theater tonight without asking our ages. We were hoping the age for the discount was 55, but it wasn’t 🙁 Some savings aren’t worth it!
I chuckled when I read this and thought, who cares? You got a break on those overpriced movie tickets.
Well, I’ve changed my mind. John and I went to The Rialto Theater in The Villages on Wednesday to see Zero Dark Thirty and we were given the senior discount. I agree with Barbara. Some savings aren’t worth it!
One of Barbara’s friends commented on her status: Use the money you saved and buy some sexy underwear.
That may be good advice!
