Humongous receipt

Humongous receipt

Here’s what happens if you obey your thirst and get a Sprite at an electronics store – you get a receipt that is larger than the bottle! And certainly, they’ll give you a large bag, too 😉

It would take just one extra field in the database to give out a smaller receipt, without all the return policy mumbo-jumbo, and to tell the cashier to not give a bag, and it would probably save a significant amount of money, nation-wide. But alas, nobody did that.
