Senior coffee

What is there about me which made the person at the drivethru automatically charge me the lower price for “senior coffee?” Was it something I said? Does their little b&w video monitor show me as graying? Is it because only older people order decaf at 10 am?

I’m not complaining about the lower price. I’m not troubled by my age. I’m just curious about their decision tree. Particularly since I don’t qualify for senior anything anywhere else. Yet.

  1. I ordered a decaf latte on my coffee outing this morning, and I’d have to be twice my age to be eligible for retirement. I’m just watching my caffeine intake.
