Receipt

Today I bought one tiny single product at a local supermarket. The receipt I got was – and I measured it – 27 centimeters long.

27! F*cking! Centimeters!
Including a logo, the supermarket’s address, sales tax, tax ID, bar code, date and time, Christmas greetings (in November!), commercial gobbledegook, lots of white space, etc.
Try getting that into your wallet.
You need to be a Japanese origami artist to get that done.

I thought modern technology was supposed to help save resources.

You can call my complaint a first-world problem if you like, I call for the reintroduction of the death penalty into our penal code for this kind of totally irresponsible, irritating and downright asinine behavior.
