i love that his discount worked. now THAT’S attention to detail in a costume! haha


#3

And that, it having worked, the manager just rolled with it. No “we can’t do it that way arse covering”


#4

How did his dog react?


#5

Before watching the video, my first thought was, “But did he get his money back?”


#6

OMG - yes - those receipts are absurd.


#7

This is great. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember CVS formally pledging to make their receipts smaller.


#8

did he crumple himself up and jump in the garbage can on the way out?

Right after the Tylenol poisoning scare back in ~1980 a bunch of us dressed as Tylenol capsules (really just red and white clothes from a thrift store), and entered a party with a sheet around us as the bottle. We called it Dielenol. We won an ad hoc prize of “Best Costume for Four Consenting Adults.”

Seems to me I saw pictures of a similar costume several years ago, and that was pretty much the last I’d heard of the infamous too-long-CVS receipt. I assumed they’d finally cleaned up their act, having become a figure of public mockery. It seems not.

Nope. I average about 2-3 feet no matter what I buy.


#12

Does he have no friends. It’s mostly POV shots with just a bit of the actual costume.


#13

His friend dressed up as a CVS bag, he was out in the parking lot blowing around.
