OK, This is Stupid

I went to Rubio's tonight and ordered a Grande Bowl and a water. That's it.

So why the hell is my receipt 11 inches long?!?! Seriously, who decided that I needed a little "light ready" with my meal? It's a receipt, not a screenplay. List what I ordered, throw in an customer number if you must, and stick the date on there somewhere.

Done and done.

Look, I realize it's very Andy Rooney of me to rant about a receipt...and maybe I'm just mad because I'm supposed to be on a diet and instead I'm ordering something called the "Grande Bowl"...but I don't think so. I can't be all alone on this, can I. It's time to call for the end of the Over-sized Receipt.

Who's coming with me?


  1. Im with you for sure. especially in this "green" time, there is no need for such a waste.

  2. And who actually fills out those surveys? Long receipts annoy the heck out of me. I know it's not a restaurant, but Target receipts are great. Logo, items, total, bar code for returns, DONE.

  3. Staples is another place that does this. I bought a bunch of stuff for work, and they listed every item separately! For example, I bought 10 of the same binder...each binder was its own line item.
