Cowart's Common Room
Thought for a Thin Day

Yesterday I went into the new Costa Coffee shop and bought a small cappuccino. They gave me the coffee and a receipt. When I got home I measured the receipt. It was more than four and a half inches long by more than four and a quarter inches wide. It contained 28 lines of writing. I can't help feeling that something is wrong here.

Westerwitch's Avatar I ordered some ear plugs and a razor through Boots and they arrived in a HUGE box . . . makes all that recycling pointless . . .

Mountainear's Avatar Packaging! Grr. Bought a USB hub from Maplins. So far so good - very helpful staff, just the gizmo I needed. 4 ports in a little box, perhaps 2" x 4" x .5". But, but, but, why on earth was it packaged in a voluminous impenetrable cardboard+plastic box, part of which was empty anyway. Waste.

We'll recycle it but I imagine many people will toss it straight in the bin.

Isn't there a company somewhere that sends receipts to your computer...ah yes, just remembered. Apple.
