Student Rate

Just when my age was beginning to get to me, the driver of our village shuttle who apparently does not know me charged me the student rate. I saw that he gave me the blue ticket (which has the lower rate) instead of the regular green one, so I, delighted, returned it with the excess change and said with a grin, “Manong, ‘di na po ako estudyante,” to which he replies, “Ah, hindi ba?” He takes back the change, gives me one last glance, and drives off to take us passengers to our homes.
