One of the humorous things that I received for my birthday was this nice offer from AARP to become a member of their club. I know that I am aging, but HELLO! where did you buy your names from AARP? FAIL. Someone scammed you…
From AARP’s website (http://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/):
Founded in 1958, AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization that helps people 50 and over improve the quality of their lives.
AARP has offices in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
As a social welfare organization, as well as, the nation’s largest membership organization for people 50+, AARP is leading a revolution in the way people view and live life.
Perhaps it’s a new marketing scheme… send you advertisements and offers for 11 YEARS before you are eligible, then you’ll be brainwashed ready to join. I wonder what The Elder is going to start getting in the mail… he’s 7, so whatever club memberships that have an age of 18 requirement… wait, scratch that… I don’t think that would be legal at his age.
But what I want to know is that If I did get a Membership approved and I went into Hardees to get a Senior Cup of Coffee, would my AARP card carry any weight if I was carded? getting carded at Hardees… “dagnabbit, I used to get carded for buying beer, now I’m getting carded for buying coffee! Back in MY day…”
