Quotes on Receipts
 

Each time we make a purchase, we are issued a scrap of paper in the form of a receipt, which includes each item we bought, the cost for each, subtotal for all and which records any discount, sales tax paid and the grand total for the transaction. Usually the retailer, restaurant or grocery store name and address are printed along the top, with date and time of the sale.

Some of us keep that receipt, others toss in the first trash can they pass, while some folks treat them with care, tucking into a purse or wallet and intent to file them later. Below are quotes about this bit of paper from our routine transactions.
