Something utterly trivial....

Paper receipts for routine grocery etc transactions in the supermarket or wherever. What's the bloody point? Nobody takes them back home and settles down to read them as literature. As for proof of purchase, it's all on cctv and the goods are branded by the vendor. They just waste a load of trees and clutter up pockets. At least make them optional. Off to London for the weekend....


Here's something for the weekend. I actually remember watching this live on TV. Hendrix has been summoned to appear on The Lulu Show (younger readers - don't ask). His task is to perform Hey Joe as the stereotypical song that he did. It's about at the time of the Cream farewell concert. Just before 1.50 he obviously decides 'I'm not doing this any more'. There's a huge grin on his face as he retunes and rips into Sunshine of Your Love because he feels like it. Quote: 'lets stop playing this rubbish and play a tribute to Cream'. TV didn't do spontaneous then. I remember sitting there cheering him on. Unfortunately the clip doesn't show Lulu's face and the end of the song. She just looks amazed and confused - she hasn't a clue what's going on.

The only reason I even look at the receipt from the grocery store is to check to see if they charged me twice for something.

It's happened one time...yet I have checked every time since.

Lulu? As in "To Sir with Love" and briefly married to one of the BeeGees Lulu?

Oh, and BTW, my mother has always scrutinized her paper receipts. The woman takes frugal to a whole new level. She'll waste $3.00 in gas going back to the grocery store to bitch about a .35 error on the bill.
