I stole a bag of Russet Potatoes

I didn't mean to. I put them in the bottom of my stroller and totally forgot to take them out to be scanned at the register. My son looked at me and said, really loudly in the parking lot, "MOM! You just stole from the store!!! " I was like, shhhhhh.

I did go back in and pay for them.

Damn potatoes.

Someone needs to invent a better basket for the bottom of strollers because mine is kind of small to begin with and once you put something down there, it is forgotten about.

Part of the cashier's job is to check the bottom of the basket. People forget (and "forget") they put things down there all the time.

Also, shame on you, potato thief.

Well you have not gone back so they should have at least given you a discount for being honest

We walked out with a 12 pack of beer one time.  It was on the bottom of the shopping cart.  I had put it down there with the scan bar towards the clerk so they could just take their gun and point at it and get the price.  Well, they didn't do that.  We didn't even know till we checked our receipt.  When we went back there the next time we went to customer service and talked with them about it and they said no they don't do that and we would have to lift the item upon to the counter, and they wouldn't let us pay for it then.  So after that we always put it up on the counter instead of leaving it on cart.
