There are many unnerving questions we have in life, some we are far too afraid to ask for fear of judgment or, that there might not be an answer to it. If you feel any fear about asking this question, leave it at the door because I am about to answer one of your biggest concerns: why are CVS receipts so dang long?
Listen, it may not seem important to you, but for an avid shopper, it makes absolutely no sense to see a receipt that is as tall as you are. There must be a valid explanation for this mystery of life and what better way than to take it to the internet with humor, in a classic roast of the beloved CVS Pharmacy. We're about to get some answers and a whole lot of laughs.
