Paper or Plastic?

Much like my pet peeve of drug store employees putting everything, no matter how small, into a plastic bag, this person has a similar gripe about receipts.

Rite Aid and Duane Reade - or Blight Aid and Bane Reade as I call them - are where bad employees go to get worse. I don't usually return gum or toilet paper, so why the sour puss when I decline a receipt?

my main gripe is the handing over the change with the reciept (usually it seems to be a stack of dollars, then receipt, then coins). How is one who doesn't intend to put the reciept in her wallet supposed to nimbly manage all of the putting away? The worst is when the cashier tries to hand you your bag of purchases immediately afterwards. I remember when they used to ask you "receipt in the bag?" I suppose it makes less work for the cashier, but I always feel like it takes longer holding up the line while I fumble and put my money away.
