Under-utilized

Me: Hey! How old are you?

Hubs: 55

Me: You qualify for the senior citizen discount at Belks!!!

Hubs: You have to be 65 at a lot of places.

Me: Sorry, Bub, but according to Belk's you are a senior citizen.

Hubs: *silent*

Me: I am not utilizing you to your fullest potential!

Hubs: *silent*

Me: You are under-utilized!!

Hubs: *walks away*

Did you really think he wanted to be a "senior"? And did you really want to be married to an old fogey anyway?

When my children were young, I used to tell them that I was "over 21". That was old enough to do anything legally, I insisted; when my fifth child was about 3, he asked me if I would be "over 22" this birthday. I graciously conceded. And "Over 22" I have remained.

You are a mean woman pam! - lol

I don't blame you though...if you can save a few buck with a discount, why not!

Haha! This made my day! What a great conversation and it sounds like one I'll probably have with my hubby one day.

hahahaha....oh my. I'm with your hubby. I would have turned and walked away. My hubby teases me all the time about my age. Thankfully, I don't look it. Well, that's what I'm claiming. :) Blessings, SusanD

Kim said...

and men think we're sensitive? My hubby was rather sensitive about turning 40 this year. He certainly did not like the phrase "over the hill".

Hey, I AM 56, and there is nothing I can do about it. If someone wants to give me a discount I WILL take it!

Hee hee this is what husbands are for! To poke fun at (but also to love because both of you know that you are just kidding).
