  • yeah, that's happened to me a couple times, always something small that got covered up by something else! The second time it happened, both the kids were with me and I realized I forgot to pay for something - I think it was chapstick or something - while I was loading them into the van. I mentioned it to my six year old son, and sure as hell, next time we went grocery shopping, he made sure to tell the clerk that I accidentally stole something last time. I go grocery shopping by myself now. :)

  • I have gone out and found something tucked in the back corner of my cart. I have always gone back and paid for it.

  • yep, I have found things under the other stuff or under the toddler in the front basket. Or I get a soda out of the cooler and drink it through the store and forget to pay for it.

  • I think I took a toothbrush once. My son needed a new one, so I went to the store to buy it and several other items. I went through the checkout line, bought and paid for everything, and went home. When I got home, I couldn't find the toothbrush. I looked on the receipt and it never got rung up. I am 100% positive that I put that toothbrush in the cart. I guess I left it in the cart and when I went to put it in the cart corral, the toothbrush was still in there.

    Oh, and I took a magazine. I forgot that I had grabbed it.

  • Yep same thing. DD car carrier was in the shopping cart basket at wal-mart, checked out, got out to the car found a 1lb package of hamburger must have rolled under her carrier. I of course went back in and paid for it. It happens.

  • No, I don't take something back if it were over looked. It was a mistake and no one caught it, not even me so, no harm done.
