An Ohio man recently got creative with his lengthy store receipt from CVS, using it as a window-blind slat and tweeting out a photo that went viral this week.
Andrew Nolan, 27, of Lakewood, told Fox 8 Cleveland that the receipt "fit perfectly" as a replacement when one of the slats on his bedroom blind broke.
He said he bought a couple of items from CVS and ended up with the window blind-length receipt
Nolan then tweeted a photo to show his friends, he said.
"One of my blinds broke in my bedroom so I just went to CVS," he tweeted.
He awoke to the tweet going viral, finding it "definitely strange" and a "little shocking," according to the station.
The tweet has around 232,000 likes, 52,000 retweets and 900 comments as of Friday.
"let me know if another one breaks. i got you," @yelosol tweeted with a photo his own CVS receipt.
Last month, a Washington, D.C., woman tweeted a viral photo of a CVS receipt that appeared to be nearly 6 feet long.
"Some personal news: CVS gave me a 5'8' receipt today," Emma Keane tweeted.
She said she received the receipt after purchasing just three items.
