If there’s one thing that drugstore CVS is infamous for, that would be its unending scrolls of receipts that appear to hold age-old prophecies, even if they just contain a couple of purchases. One woman took a trip to the store and lived to tell the tale.
Twitter user Emma Keane recently shared a photo of her receipt from CVS that measured almost six feet.
“I literally purchased three items,” she emphasized.
The long strip of paper was about the height of Keane, who is 5’8” tall. According to Seattle-based news network KOMO News, its length could be attributed to CVS’ ‘ExtraCare’ program, which rewards customers with coupons and promotions.
Comments from customers who related with Keane’s shopping experience poured in. Some said they had obtained receipts taller than themselves, while others criticized CVS for wasting paper.
“If I became the CEO there, the first thing I would do is eliminate the mile-long receipt and donate the money to replant all the trees they have cut down [from] giving us these receipts…” wrote Twitter user Paul Szotek MD. “How about just put it on my account on the app?”
Reluctant to discard the piece of paper, Keane took it to work and showed it to her colleagues, who were understandably amused. The team even turned it into a chart that measured their heights according to “how many CVS receipts” tall they were.
“Nothing builds team camaraderie like the ole CVS receipt measuring stick,” the woman joked.

😂😂 If I became the CEO there the first thing I would do is eliminate the mile long receipt and donate the money to replant all the trees they have cut down giving us these receipts which 98% probably end up in the garbage. How about just put it on my account on the app.....— Paul Szotek MD (@PaulSzotekMD) October 5, 2018
