I know this question, or similar questions, have been asked before but more specifically do you feel 'comfortable' asking? Personally, I do not feel comfortable asking for it. My wife gets mad at me for not asking but I feel that she won't understand where I'm comi ng from when I explain why I dont ask.

I view myself just like any other person. I dont feel special because of my profession and dont expect or demand discounts on clothes, food or other things. I'll gladly take a handshake and a "Thank you for your service" over handouts.

Wondering if any one else feels this way. And if not, how often and for what do you ask discounts for?

If I see it listed, I take out my ID. I don't ask if they have one. If they offer it, I don't argue.

Unless I'm spending over 100$ I usually don't bother. Not because I'm afraid or uncomfortable but more that it isn't worth the headache unless you're spending a pretty penny.

I'll gladly take it if offered, but I don't really ask for it. I once worked with a guy who asked wherever we went and would almost throw a scene if a place said no. It got to the point that no one would even hang out with him.
