So Much For Privacy

Those of you who are “experienced” will probably remember that grocery stores tend to make “personal hygiene” items rather ambiguous on cash register receipts. Comdoms, for instance, usually register as “lubricant,” and that sort of thing. I bought some more anti-dandruff shampoo this evening at Meijer and watched in great amusement as the following line appeared on the checkout display and on my receipt:

DANDRUFF       38151513900       2.94

Three bucks seems kinda pricey for a bottle of someone else’s dead skin, if you ask me.
