I'm not old but sometimes I feel old. Just a few moments ago I felt really old.
I went to a store to buy some clothes which is something I'm not fond of. I usually want to get in and get out as quickly as possible. So I picked some pants and shirts that I liked, roughly estimated whether or not I thought they would fit, and then went to the cashier. She tallied up the total and it wasn't awful but it was enough money that I wasn't too pumped to pay it. Then she asked if I would like to sign up with their rewards program-thing and save 20% on this purchase. I said sure. I usually say 'no' to questions like that but 20% is nothing to scoff at. So I went through the whole process and then shit started rolling.
She mentioned all these discounts I got, which was nice, but then something about the store's "bucks" and then said I could pay off some balance online or in the store if I wanted which means I think I signed up for a credit card but I don't know. I was overwhelmed. She talked really fast about a lot of things I know nothing about. But because I didn't want to sound like an idiot I just nodded my head and acted confident as if I knew exactly what she was talking about. When I left the store I had to stop and think to myself, "What the fuck just happened?"
So, make me feel better about myself by relaying some stories of when you felt really, really old.
I did some more digging and what I got was a coupon because I spend over a certain amount of money. I did open a credit line but I didn't spend any money on the card which I've now closed.
