If you’ve ever worked a job with a cash register, you’re probably aware of a little feature that allows you to add a message to the bottom of customers’ receipts. Usually, shops and restaurants add something generic, like “Have a nice day” or “Come again.” But sometimes, businesses or employees use this opportunity to add a little levity to the end of service. Because turns out, there are lots of ways to make receipts fun. Here are 15 examples of employees proving this to be true.

1. No meal is complete without a “dad joke” to round it out.
