I don't normally look very closely at my receipts, but today I'm submitting some for reimbursement, so I noticed that the top of a Walgreens receipt reads: "I'm JOSEPHINE. Thank you for allowing me to serve you today."

Now, okay, fine, this means I can call and mention the cashier by name if I need to or if I have questions. Fine. But allowing me to serve you? Really? Couldn't you hold your employees in at least a little more esteem than that?

Or am I overreacting? How does that phrase strike you?
