There's a good reason why I carefully read through my receipts upon returning home from a shopping trip, and it's not because I'm afraid of being overcharged (although that would be a perfectly reasonable and, more importantly, sensible explanation). No. I excitedly check my receipts on the off-chance that either a typo, clumsily abbreviated item description, or bored employee has transformed what is usually a depressing reminder of my predictable overspending into an unlikely source of amusement. So far I'm yet to strike gold but I have it on good authority that it happens quite regularly; after all, how many millions of receipts are produced on a daily basis?
To whet my appetite (and yours), here are some glorious examples.
