Me: Is there a discount for teachers?
Lady 1: We have Teacher Appreciation Day on August 17.
Me: Do homeschooling parents get the same rewards as teachers on that day?
Lady 1: No.
Me: Even if we're registered with a homeschooling association?
Lady 1 defers to Lady 2.
Lady 2: I don't know. Maybe if you have a card.
Lady 2 calls Man 1 over.
Lady 2: Do homeschooling parents get the teacher rewards if they have a card or something that says they homeschool?
Man 1: I don't see why not. A teacher is a teacher. They're teaching, aren't they?
I said a big "Thank You" to that young gentleman, flashed them all a big smile and left, planning to return on August 17.
