One thought on “Back Off in #Haiku.10/2/14.

  1. Original wording from the Dunks one. Let me know if my translation seems a bit off.

    “First, I would like to thank Rep. Al Baldasaro and Sen. Sharon Carson for getting the veteran indicator on our New Hampshire licenses and the recognition it affords us. Secondly, I wish they had done just a little more research about how veterans get discounts at various establishments. I checked (online) approximately 100 establishments in New Hampshire and they all require an active duty member or veteran to have the following in their possession to get a discount: an active duty or Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card, or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card or a DD Form 2 (Retired) ID or DD214. The mere fact of having a “V” on your license will not get you a discount. This is especially true at the big box stores, where you need the DD Form 2. It’s also very hard to get a senior discount at local doughnut chain. Some stores will only give you a 10-percent discount on the beverage; while other stores, who understand the value of their senior customers, will give a senior discount of 10 percent on the entire purchase.”
