Last week, I visited the Connecticut River Museum, in Essex, CT. You’ll hear more about this visit, and you’ll see some doors in the near future, but today, I’m focused on the entry process. I arrived at the museum shortly after it opened. The very nice lady at the desk asked me if I qualified for any of their discounts. She explained that they included: museum members, veterans, active-duty military, students and senior citizens. I’m not used to asking for a senior discount, but I told her that one should apply. She looked at me and said,
“I think I’m going to have to card you.”
I remember this happening at liquor stores in my youth, but that was when I really wanted to look my age or older. Maybe she was just being nice, but this was a pleasant request.
