58. I filled out the application with a fake name and address and an old phone
Edited on Fri Jun-23-06 10:05 PM by kath
number. I don't carry the card with me, but if I give 'em the old phone number (from where we lived ten years ago) they punch it in and I get the discount.
Since the name and address are fake, I avoid the Big-Brotherism (which I HATE)
