Who do YOU think deserves discounts? (Movie theaters, restaurants,etc.) I think law enforcement, ems, firefighters. military and doctors and nurses. I may have left something out....

What do you think??

You make a good point. Fixed income, duh, I'm an idiot. BUT I still maintain that those others I listed should get them too.

Quoting max05:

Agree! I think they deserve it and really need it. I know many families work on a fixed income but Senior Citizens have to depend on SSI and its not much at all. I remember my grandmother having a house that used oil to heat her home and she used to get upset cause the prices went so high. So she would have her house so cold cause she didn't want to use much. She worked hard her whole life and was a single mom earlier in her life and thought that she didn't not deserve to be treated that way. 

I think oil companies, gas companies, etc.  should give Senior Citizens discounts.

I think senior citizens should get it more than Docs and nurses.

But because they're old, they do?

and I'm not talking clothes.  Most places that give them are fast food joints and movie theaters.

I definitely don't think doctors and nurses deserve a discount on things. Military, firefighters, police officers, and senior citizens; yes. But I don't see why the other two...

I personally think that the old people get the discounts because they usually don't make as much money. I know that when I ran a restaurant, a lot of our customers were widows/widowers who either didn't know how to cook or could afford to make as good of a meal as they might be able to get.

I'm not against military discounts by any means and I'm even for some others, life firefighters, police, etc but not sure I agree with drs, nurses, etc.
