Sherman Oaks, California
Borders Register Clerk: Do you want your receipt in the bag?
Me: Where else would I want it?
Clerk: In your hand.
Me: No. In the bag, please.
Me: What difference does it make?
Clerk: Some people don’t want it in the bag.
Me: How many people actually express a preference without prompting?
Clerk: A lot. Some will even grab it out of the bag and put it directly in their wallet.
