A photo of a CVS shopper has gone viral after a Washington D.C. woman bought just three items at the pharmacy, but received a nearly 6-foot long paper receipt with her purchase.

Emma Keane seemed to find the situation rather bemusing and posted a photo of herself standing next to the bill on her Twitter feed in early October. Keane, who is 5'8" tall, poses in front of her fridge holding the lengthy receipt above her head.

It seems as if Keane is receiving plenty of feedback about the 6-foot slip, and she recently posted her plans for the weekend in light of her sudden fame.

"My weekend plans are to just ride the CVS receipt wave and to think long and hard about the jug of wine corks on my fridge people keep calling out."
"If I became the CEO there the first thing I would do is eliminate the mile long receipt and donate the money to replant all the trees they have cut down giving us these receipts which 98 per cent probably end up in the garbage."
