A Sign of the Times

Flying on American Airlines the other night, I was watching as the flight attendants came down the aisle selling snacks and sandwiches. I heard a guy behind me ask whether they had receipts for the meals we were purchasing (obviously a business traveler).

This is the world we now live in. Your Platinum Amex card does you no good, but your receipt is in with the mayonnaise.
