This morning I was in a hurry to make it to my Sunday morning walk and hadn't had time to make breakfast. So, on the way home from getting coffee for my wife and daughter, I stopped at McDonald's for an Egg McMuffin. When I went to pay, the woman behind the counter said, "You know, people who serve the military can get a discount?"
"Why did you think of that?" I asked.
"Because when you pulled out your wallet, I saw your military ID."
I carry a US Navy civilian ID.
"Thanks," I said, "how much is the discount?
It was a whopping 25%. I accepted.
"We give a discount because people in the military and who work for the military are serving their country," she said.
