Receipt (13/365)


“I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'”

PLACE: Home Sweet Home
SUBJECT: Receipt

I'm taking the night off from the middle school youth group tonight and instead taking care of some of those annoying chores that seem to pile up. This weekend we went into town (a 60 mile round trip) to buy curtains and a few other things for the apartment, including ONE broom and ONE dustpan. When I got home I checked my receipt (because y'all know how I am) and discovered I had been charged for THREE dustpans. Tonight I'll be returning to Meijer to get a refund on the two dustpans I didn't buy.

I have this thing where I am curious about people's receipts, I think this means I am nosy. Interesting that you bought an "angle broom" I prefer those also...and your "shaker set" for martinis or pepper?

Okay, I am done being nosy...

Obviously they needed to make up for the bargins you got on the shaker set and angle broom. ;)

I hate having to make a special trip for an adjustment, especially if it is their fault.

Funny, when I looked and saw the 3 dustpans I couldn't help but wonder why you would need 3 of those! :)

The first thing I thought of when I saw the photo was, "who the hell needs 3 dust pans????" LOL

You got to watch. I check my receipts all of the time. Once in a while I catch a mistake. Usually, in the stores favor.

Ugh! What a waste of time and gas. I hate it when stores overcharge for things you DON'T buy or get (like cheese on cheeseburgers...if I pay for cheese, I want the cheese!) LOL.

The quote is great. :)
