    How ancient would we have to be to qualify? How special should our needs be?

    Status levels would be reached at discounted rates and coffee could be free.

    So much for respecting your elders. [​IMG]
    My understanding was that Randy really wanted this to be an uber friendly site.
     
  16. Being as I consider myself a re-tread and have an AARP card. (anyone can get an AARP card) Did you happen to have an age range in mind or just the concept of older travelers.

    I'm pretty sure I would be an elder to many on MP. Punki as soon as I take my Metamucil and put my dentures in a glass, I will write you a very respectful post.

    There are lots of special deals for seniors, some even for very young 50-year-old AARP members. I remember once getting a senior rate at a Starwood property in Boston that saved us $200 a night. That was sweet.

    There are lots of other great senior perks for trains, and many tourist attractions.

    I think that the forum would benefit anyone who could qualify for the benefits.

    Here, for instance, is another of my favorites. If you have a Medicare card you can buy your ticket on the New Jersey Transit trains with no penalty. This can be a real life saver if you are running late for the train.

    There are tons of special little perks that we can share.

    Wait, wait ... you start the thread with a smiley, and then you are disappointed at seeing the small (and friendly!) jokes posted in the thread? Really?

    I have a pretty good sense of humor and even make myself laugh many times every day.

    Despite that I don't see the humor in equating kvetching with senior citizens, or such derogatory remarks as "Old Farts".

    It is entirely possible that I am missing some really great humor here, so please help me understand how those comments were truly funny. Thank you.

    I must admit that the "depends" remark was pretty cute.
