BOB...bottom of basket. Those forgotten items at the bottom of the basket that you are so busy when you rush to put items on the conveyer belt at the store...that when you go through the doors and the alarm doesn't go off...you're putting your items in the back of your car when you realize...you DIDN'T pay for the item that slipped through unpaid for. What do you do?
Some say karma. It wasn't your fault that the cashier missed it. Or guilty so you turn around and want to pay for it. I've known people to return things that BOB had...or that they didn't realize their toddler walked out with only to get called thief and get reported...
Have you had a BOB experience or what would you do if this happened to you?

I haven't had this happen, but if I did I would go back and pay for the item(s). I've always been paranoid about having the kids walk out with something when they were little and now when we go shopping they both check the cart to make sure we've gotten it all up on the belt. I agree with pennycandy - people not paying for things only leads to higher prices for all.

On the other hand, there have been many times I have had something rung up by the cashier more than once so I call it even and move on. If it was something expensive, had a cashier forget a carseat once, I went back in and paid for it after not seeing it on my receipt. A case of Coke? Nope, those are the ones I chalk up to being even.
