Sometimes I don’t have anything particularly funny or snarky to write, and sometimes I’m in between more serious pieces. In those periods, I still have things I want to write about, they just fit somewhere in between. This is the fifth post in a category I call “In Between.”
My family and I recently got back from an awesome trip to Disneyland. Seriously, it was probably the best vacation I’ve ever been on, and my girls had a blast.
We stayed on site at the Disneyland Hotel (with a military discount), and we bought 3-day park hopper tickets (with an amazing military discount). Honestly, I’m not sure we would have even planned the trip were it not for the deals afforded to me because of my military service.
The whole experience got me thinking about the concept of retailers offering military discounts and the associated customer interactions. While I don’t feel like there’s any shame in taking advantage of discounts on large scale, multi-thousand dollar expenditures, there’s a whole spectrum of scenarios that could happen on smaller levels across store countertops.
