As the cold sweeps into the badlands south of the frozen tundra, it's time for warmer workout clothes. And, in the check-out lane last evening at a local sporting goods store, the cashier asked if I had a AAA card.
"I do," I replied, as I fished the proof from my wallet. "I've been coming here for years and didn't know you offered a discount to AAA members."
"We took the sign down," she absent-mindedly replied, "because too many people were using their cards to get a discount. I think we were losing money."
Which may be true...but probably not something management wanted us all to know.
I chuckled all the way home.
