Your order is free if we fail to issue a receipt.
Wallgreens will give you $5.00 if they fail to provide a receipt for your purchase, but who knew the same concept could also get you $9,700 worth of doin' it. From Wired magazine:
If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody around, does it make a sound? If a brothel charges a man for sex he does not remember having, does he have to pay the bill? A German court says no -- not if the establishment fails to provide an itemized receipt. The court ordered a bordello in Kaarst to reimburse a man charged around 9,000 euros ($9,700) for services the man was too drunk to remember ordering. "The brothel failed to provide concrete documentation of the prices and services rendered," said a court spokesman in Duesseldorf on Friday. The brothel owner testified that the man had ordered the "full program."
For $9,700 the "full program" better include getting your house painted.
