Over here at the Shoeboxed blog, we love interesting stories about receipts. Receipts are such an important and ubiquitous aspect of our lives, that everyone seems to have something to say about them.
We found an interesting blog post the other day about one such receipt. Apparently, the Company CD Baby has some of the best receipts ever. They write really funny copy on their receipts, of which we are mildly jealous. An excerpt:
Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved “Bon Voyage!” to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Tuesday, March 18th.
I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did.
Your picture is on our wall as “Customer of the Year.” We’re all exhausted but can’t wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!
This is one of the best receipts ever written. Anyone else have any great receipt stories or interesting receipts they’d like to share? If so, let us know, and you or your blog might be featured here soon!
