Don’t like being called Senior?

My 82 year old mother does not like being referred to as a “senior citizen”.
She doesn’t even like Senior.

So I ask this: If you are retired, or an older person…which term do you like best?

I found a site online with focus group results. (In an effort to find a good way to fill in the following blanks: What else works with______ Discount, ______ Living Guide,
and Free Stuff for _______?)

The focus group revealed these options.

Least Appealing
Older Boomers
Third Agers
Third Actors
Retired People
Senior Citizens

Most Appealing
Wise Ones

Others not on the list:
JALOs (for those “Just A Little Older.”)
Golden Girls

So….if you are a wise one, or a seasoned citizen……which term have you heard that you like best?
Just post a reply below.
