READ: Is this the most awkward receipt of all time?

As every shopaholic out there will know, it is CRUCIAL to keep receipts after you’ve made a purchase.

Only for a little while, mind, but for at least a week or so; after all, what if that pair of ripped jeans turn out to be just a shade too small? Or that shirt dress doesn’t quite sit right?

Anyway, we digress; receipts are good, because they give you the ability to change your mind AND get your money back - which is always a good thing.

Now, one Redditor recently shared the saddest receipt with the saddest reason for a possible return: "date canceled on him."

Sad, that is, until you look at what is is he returned; a pack of condoms.

Yup, that’s right; this guy - let’s call him Adam, shall we? - was so confident that he would get lucky on his first date that he bought himself a pack of condoms.

Which is all well and good, we suppose; safe sex and all that.

But… well, why did he return them? At 9.31am in the morning?

We guess maybe he really needed that £3.81 back. or maybe, heartbroken by his failed date, he wound up vowing to NEVER have sex again in an ill-advised protest.

Poor Adam. We feel his pain.

But you know what? We reckon that Adam, wherever he is in the world, should just march back into that shop, re-buy those three condoms, and store them away with pride.

because condoms last, Adam. And, one day, you will use them. We’re sure of it.
