This really annoys me. And we see it everywhere beside ATM machines. People get receipts from their transactions, and then after glancing at them, they throw them in (or in this case, beside) the trash can.
That’s fine to get receipts if you are going to use them for record keeping, but if you don’t plan to do it, then don’t get a printed receipt! You can always choose the “no print out” option. It is a waste of paper, ink, energy for those things to be printed only to be thrown away 3 seconds later.
And if you do decide to still do it and throw it, make sure it goes in the trash can.
Harrrrumph. Pet peeves.
