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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
