How many of you have ever not checked out an item in your cart at the store and not realized it till you got home with it?




That happened to me last night...


We went to Walmart got a ton of stuff. I saw the 20$ cake pop maker for kids and wanted to try it. Our neighbors have 6 kids so we figured we could share it with them too. We checked out in the back of the store because we park there... Yeah DH hates it but it feels easier to me. The poor lady was sick and we were all chatting and were having a nice time. She almost forgot the diapers and the new shoe rack under the cart till I reminded her the very last second.


Fail lol.


I don't think we have the recite anymore DH threw it away... But regardless I'm keeping the box and taking it back and paying for it properly. :)

It happened once a week after i had my kid it was a single thing of string cheese it was half in the cart i did not see it i was walking away from the self check out line and some lady went nuts and start yelling  theif i was what the heck is going on .the manger came over and ask what was going on and the lady told him i was trying to take cheese i told him i scaned it and it was on the receipt the manger told the lady it was on there the said that not what im talking about the cheese hanging out of the bottom of the cart. then a cop walk up and ask what was going on the manger told him what happened he ask me if i saw it i said no it was hanging out of the bottom of the cart i said i will pay for it and the lady told the cop i should be taking away he said that was not going to happen because i had not left the store and it was hanging out of the cart bottom and it was warm not cold meaning it had been there a while. I thought i had picked up some string cheese but it was not mine.

Diapers. Never fails that I forget them. But I always go back to pay.

I accidentally stole a green pepper from the commissary at one base! It was hiding under my ds carseat (he was 3 months at the time. Now 5, but I still remember lol) and I didn't even notice it was hiding. I did go back because it was on a military base and I was scared I'd get arrested or something lol I didn't have to pay for it :P they were happy I was honest about it. So I thought that was cool of them.

My son took a KitKat bar once



I made him go back into the dollar tree to return it, but because he went back and was so "cute in saying sorry" not only did he get the KitKat the older couple at the check out paid for it and a couple of more



(Facepalm) thankfully he was embarrassed bout having to say sorry he hasn't done it again! And no I did not let him have the candy that day!

This just happened to us on last week.  I had a DVD for my husband in our cart and it was warm in the store so I'd taken my coat off.  When we checked out I picked my coat up and didn't see anything under it, but low and behold when we started putting items in the trunk I pulled my coat out and the DVD was under there.  I took it right back in and paid for it, but yeah I was embarassed, lol

no one owes you anything.




Quoting Anonymous:

Meh. Whatever. The amount of money I spend on groceries is practically robbery also. They owe me one... Or two.






Quoting Anonymous:

well thats horrible. it's one thing for it to happen as an accident but to do it intentionally....sad

Quoting Anonymous:

I don't go back and pay. In fact, sometimes I put stuff in the bottom of the cart hoping that the cashiers will forget about it. This works especially well in the self check out line in some stores.
