|Creepy Receipt Guy

This was most bizarre, and I have yet to hear a similar tale...|
Tonight, a gent came through, bought two 2 Liters of cheap pop and some nonsense items (light bulbs, I think). Total was under $20. Then, out of nowhere, he gives me a very fast, very double-talking speech about how he needs me to sign his reciept after he 'documents' some things on it...
I think, "Okay, strange, but not so strange..."
He goes to the till next to mine and starts scribbling on his ticket. I ring up the next two customers while I'm waiting. Then, he has to go to the bathroom. Right now. Where is it?! I point him off in the direction of said facility, and ring up one more person. Within two minutes, he's back. Considering that the bathrooms are at the other end of the store, I found that very odd, but what do you do?
So, he gets done writing after *four* more customers. He hands me the note and wants me to initial it and sign it for "business reasons." The entire reciept is covered with scribbled notes - top to bottom. There's a code next to each of his six items, and No *scribble* written about nine times below all that. I asked if it was something I was supposed to read, and he said, no, it's just to document that I had no other purchases. The hell? So, he wants me to sign his "contract."
Yeah, right. I put my name and store employee number on it (since my number is on it already and my name is on my vest) and he gives me another fast-paced speech about 'business expenses.'
Very, very creepy, and I'm not even sure why...
