Iyer - Sr v/s Jr

Iyer Sr seems to be in a jolly good mood these days after retirement. We arent sure if this is the case with the Sr's in all the families. This post is another of the PJ's by Iyer Jr (yours truly) dedicated to Iyer Sr.

Sr seems to be asking for special treatment for Senior Citizens for almost everything in life. Train fares, plane fares, water resort entrance fees, movie tickets... even restaurant menus should be having special treatment (fares or otherwise) for Senior Citizens.

And this is what happened today morning...

Sr: Kesari tours and travels have this trip to malaysia, thailand singapore etc
Jr: Great... Do you want to go?
Sr: Yes we do.. but do we need passports?
Jr: Yes sure you do... what'd you think?
Sr: Ok, so do they have any special treatments for Senior Citizens in the passport office?
Jr: Sure... for you.. they'd put in higher numbers in the Age section of the passport...
Sr: (so that was a joke haan?)

Tell us this was funny... Sr refuses to believe :(

Firstly, when you said sr v/s jr, I thought you were gonna have a kid (or in the process of).

Secondly, NO, not funny. Always respect sr. Iyers!

Its very sensitive issue for them ! You have no idea who you ended up upsetting... Its a serious matter for senior citizens !

My Dada turned 75 last year.... and he always reverses his age... whenever addressed... that too purposefully! To him he is 57 and no one can dare to refute that claim !

@silverine: making fun of me haan?

@apoo: no such plans to further downgrade the iyer species... atleast as of now...

@priya: :)

neeku: will keep that in mind... oh by the way, did i tell you that my dad is younger than me when i reverse his age... so i keep your idea in reserve...

@ideasmith: will definitely let you know when iyer jr decides to embarass (or was it embrace?) me
