What age qualifies you as senior citizen?


No disrespect is intended, this a legitimate question. I saw something in the daily mail that said, "Gift Certificate to Senior Citizens ages 50 to 85." My mother was 51 and I honestly didn't consider her a senior citizen, she barely had any gray hair. I picture one as gray haired, glasses, walker or wheel chair, am I wrong? What age truly qualifies you as a senior citizen?

    Oh ok, my mom was born in 1961. She didn't even look senior citizen-like, if there is a look. It is a societial norm to want to look younger than you are and not as much value is placed on aging.

    lol, you have to be careful. I did that to a non-pregnant lady I really inserted foot into mouth. I bet your look was priceless.
