Room 101: Receipts

A lot of things annoy me.  They will go here.

Why are people increasingly handing out receipts for the tiniest of purchases.  They’re unnecessary, useless bits of paper that we just don’t need a lot of the time.  An 85p carton of orange juice in M&S, or the 90 seconds between purchasing my smoothie at Old Street, and getting my drink – it’s just not necessary.  Am I going to change my mind in those few seconds?  Will you forget you served me?  It’s up on CCTV, so there’s evidence!  How many trees are pissed away by doing this?  Half the time, we don’t even need a bag, but we’re given a receipt. They’re left to collect in pockets and handbags, and tipped into the bin at the end of the week.
