Little kid leaves cutest signature on receipt at Dominos

Little Kid Leaves Cutest Receipt Ever

A young child bought a Domino's Pizza and left what may be the cutest receipt ever.

16-year-old Texan Jewel Cowart takes orders from all different kinds of customers at Dominos, but it was a kid who placed an order under the name "Thomas Jefferson" that melted her heart. Apparently, the boy and his father are regulars at that specific location and days prior the child placed an order under Abraham Lincoln.

On this occasion, when it came time to pay, the young boy had his dad's permission to swipe his card. He even signed the receipt using his father's name ... "Dad."

The whole thing was too cute for Cowart to handle. She told TODAY, "At first, I had this overwhelming feeling of adoration and I wanted to squeeze this child into a hug, and then I came to realize the child didn't even realize how cute it was. He simply thought he was signing for his father."

She showed the photo of the receipt to her brother, who posted it on Reddit. It quickly gained thousands of views. Cowart says she can't believe the response, but I'm sure she'll tell her young customer next time he comes in to pick up his order under the name George Washington.

And this isn't the only receipt story that's been in the news. Customers in Minnesota dining at Oasis Cafe were shocked to find an additional charge on their bill: a $.35 "minimum wage fee" to offset the cost of the increased minimum wage in the state.

If it sounds like the restaurant's owner is thumbing his nose at the increase, that's because he is. He posted on Facebook that this is his attempt to shine a light on the matter.

That receipt story, not so cute.

as funny and quite it may have been, the man could had later claimed that it wasn't his charge. That he did not owe the payment for this meal. I do believe that this wasn't legal.

To the douche who put a minimum wage fee on his receipt, how do you think your employees feel that a slight increase in their wage was something you sneered at. Instead of raising your prices that whopping 35 cents, you put it on the receipt and degraded them. Jerk.

As to the "not so nice" addendum, if it is not openly disclosed and posted for all to see, I bet the guy could get in a lot of trouble over the 35 cents x how ever many customers he has. Credit card companies are happy to screw you, but they do a pretty good job of taking people to the mat, as do the feds, over bogus charges and add ons.

It's his business. All he had to do was increase the price 35 cents. His employees must have felt really appreciated that their employer was mad over putting a little loose more loose change in their pocket. Most civilized countries adjust their minimum wage annually with the cost of living. We haven't done that in a decade or more. That is why our poor are getting poorer.

Sue... I am amazed at how you read through the posts and decided to comment where you can apply your political preferences. Do everyone a favor and stop replying until you can grow the hell up and have something to say that relates to the article, not your own political opinions. People like you are such losers.

But not on a credit card receipt. The proper name of the person on the card should be signed.....

Let's see, the father owns the card he is supposed to sign for the transaction or it is void. I'm surprised this bleeding heart wasn't fired.

How do you know the father (who was a well-known customer there) didn't sign it later himself?
What happens to the many people who scribble their signatures so they can't be read at all, or the ones, like my daughter, who uses only her initials as her signature?

I'm not so sure that a "minimum wage fee" is a legitimate charge to pass on to your customers. The Cafe owner might find himself in legal hot water, paying far more than the minimum wage increase, as a result of his opposition. It probably would have been far more advantageous for him to simply increase the prices on his menu.

If restaurants hired workers who were paid a legitimate living wage- No one would be able to afford to eat in restaurants- been in the industry 30 years and thanks to illegal immigrants and unskilled teenagers being hired for next to nothing, employers will not pay skilled documented employees what they are worth- A college kid living with mommy and daddy for the summer take work away from adults trying to earn a living for 8/hr because its cookie and beer money- not the rent or gas bill.
Ask any restaurant/retail foodstore owner- its the truth.
