The Strangest Things That We’ve Seen Printed On Receipts For Totally Normal Products

No doubt about it receipts can result in some pretty hilarious hi-jinks. We aren’t just talking about in emails and text messages. When shopping or enjoying a meal out, our receipts have been known to show up with some pretty weird slips. 

However, sometimes we can’t help but wonder how many of these receipts are human error and how many are just examples of these stores and restaurants messing with their customers. 

Take, for example, this strange dis that this Twitter user found on her receipt when she bought some Mexican soft drinks.

Over the weekend, Twitter user @lola_delunah visited a pizzeria in Berkeley. With her large pizza, she bought a Jarritos and a Senorial Sangria to wash it all down with. The problem was that the drinks rang up as “weird sodas” on her receipt. Talk about an insult to la cultura!

This receipt isn’t the only one that has been shared online. We found some other hilarious instances of bizarre naming, questionable tipping practices and strange quotes found on receipts and decided to share them with our readers. Enjoy and make sure to read your receipts. 

1. We’re hoping this is just a Freudian slip. 

Reddit 

We’re really hoping this a typo. According to their receipt, this Snickers bar seems to be packing a little something extra. Call us immature but we can’t help but laugh a little over this shopper’s questionable snack. 

2. We guess it was a “full service” bar.

Reddit

This bar obviously has great customer service. There’s even a place on the receipt to leave a generous tip. In all seriousness, this is probably the name of a cocktail but the managers had to know what they were doing when they programmed in the name for this drink. 

3. We appreciate that “Best Butt” discount especially. 

Reddit

Now this is how you flirt with somebody. Don’t come on too strong but let them know you appreciate them as a person. You admire their smile and personality just as much as you’re digging that butt. It might not get you their digits but it’s sure to get a laugh or two. 

4. To be fair, Math is hard.

Reddit

Sometimes the bizarre things we read off of receipts are actually from the customers themselves. Take this one for example. We’re assuming that this customer was a little too drunk to do the math but at least they took the time to actually leave a decent tip. 

5. When we go shopping for nothing and end up spending all our money. 

ForkParty.com

That’s an expensive bit of nothing we see on this receipt. Considering the number of drinks on this order, we’re really hoping that “nothing” is an accurate charge and not an attempt to inflate the bill. There’s a lesson here: always double-check your receipts. 

6. Solid advice. 

HuffingtonPost.com

We aren’t sure what’s funnier: the advice at the top of this receipt or the fact that it’s for a toy store. Either way, we doubt this little tip was meant to be on this receipt and we’ve got to chalk it up to some sort of employee prank. 

7. Farters will be fined.

 HuffingtonPost.com

We really can’t come up with an explanation for what this charge is supposed to be for. It seems it is exactly what it says: a farting charge. To be fair, if you commit the crime, you deserve the fine. Maybe more restaurants should include this charge. 

8. Is all this information really necessary?

It doesn’t seem like you would need a full-on description of the customer printed on the receipt in order to buy some video games, but, what do we know. We wonder if the employee guessed this Twitter user’s height and weight or if it was just a really uncomfortable check out process?

9. Beware, judgmental customers.

Twitter / @LordWinkins

This strange receipt comes with a pretty unbelievable story. The customer asked their server about their expensive shoes and decided that they obviously didn’t need a tip if they could afford $800 Reeboks. Ouch!  Don’t be this customer. 

10. Can you really call this a signature, though?

Twitter / @katymccollister

We have questions. Is this the person’s real phone number? It is a made-up series of digits? Does this person not know what a signature is? Is this even a legit signature?

11. This one’s kind of deep.

Quotes on receipts are usually inspirational but this one is more profound than anything else. Still, this is a strange quote to see on a receipt for a breakfast diner. At least it will give you something to chew over for the rest of the day.

Moms Are Sharing Videos Of How To Make Their Comida For Their College-Bound Kids After A Mom’s Burrito-Folding Video Went Viral

Last week, California Polytechnic State University student, April Olvera posted a video sent to her by her mamá, and the video went viral, already wracking up nearly ten million views, and nearly one million likes in less than seven days.

Olvera, away at college, texted her mom, Silvia Dominguez, to say that she didn’t know how to fold a burrito, and her mom sent her a video that contained a soothing video-folding lesson.

While some couldn’t help but wonder why Olvera didn’t know how to fold a burro, her mamí’s special brand of cariño shown in the forty-second burrito-folding lesson was the focus of the comments that followed.

Other Latinas needed the lesson too!

Twitter

Another Latina Twitter user, couldn’t get over the way Olvera’s mother, Silvia, repeated the lesson.

Twitter

Two guys commented on Olvera’s mom’s soothing voice, but we think @carys_arsenic nailed it.

And this guy too who points out Ms. Dominguez’s calm in the face of a world that seems to be coming apart at the seams.

Twitter

When Olvera told her mother that her video went viral and inspired so many positive comments, Dominguez said, “Maybe it’s not the burrito. Maybe it’s about family and love.”

Burrito-folding-lesson mom, Silvia Dominguez, speaks Spanish in the video, smiling the whole time, clearly happy to be able to help her daughter away at college with anything, using her own phone propped up on the counter to capture the lesson.

“Okay,” she says in Spanish, holding up a corn tortilla, “Imagine that this is my flour tortilla. Add what you’re going to use, fold it from this side, fold it from that side, and roll it. Did you see that?

And then she unrolls the burro and repeats the steps: It’s a circle. Fold it here, fold it here, and roll it. Nice! Okay, bye. I love you.”

We also like how Burrito-Folding-Lesson Mom is even helping grown-ass men.

And because imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, here’s a video made by the author for her son on his way to college in the fall.
