You've GOT to be kidding me...

The first snow of the season may fall tonight. Arg.

I went to the grocery store the other day and bought 3 items. THREE. Check out the receipt I got:
Why in God's name would anyone need a receipt that's over a foot long when they buy a baguette, brie, and mascara?? Ri-dic-u-lous.

did someone give you a gift card for a grocery store?

Yes, the grocery store did. I had pulled a mom the last time I went in and bought brown mascara instead of black. Their exchange policy is to give you a gift card for the value of the item. For whatever reason. So not only did that transaction waste a foot and a half of paper, but also a plastic gift card that was in my possession for approximately 3 minutes.

I always get huge receipts at CVS when I use my rewards card. 95% of the time, it's coupons for stuff I don't use or need (like diapers or something...).

I like how mascara made it onto your shopping list. Which one of these items doesn't belong?

Is your hand there in order to show the relative size of the receipt?

Why, yes, Liz. I took a picture without my hand in it and decided that it was stupid because you really couldn't tell how long it was. So I added my hand for comparison's sake. I suppose I should have compared it to a penny to make it seem even bigger... :)
