Minor annoyances from the retail world

As seen on a Kmart receipt:

Any purchase payed for by check has a 10 day grace period.

Is there a copy editor in the house? And while they're making that "paid," maybe they can grab a hypen and make it "10-day."

So when the Kroger gas pump fails to spit out a receipt and tells you to see the attendant, why is it that if you have paid by credit card, the card number does not show on the duplicate receipt? It's on the one at the pump.

So if you have multiple cards, you have to remember which one you used, or you have to fumble for a pen and write it down on the duplicate receipt (which you probably wouldn't have needed to get anyway had the attendant put new paper in the pump printer). C'mon Kroger, show some smarts and concern for your customers here. How hard can this be?

I find myself becoming increasingly annoyed by people who use "different than" instead of "different from."
