I even made sure last night to put the card in my wallet so I wouldn't forget it today. After all, it's free substitute money.

So of course, I breezed through the self-service checkout on full autopilot and completely forgot about the giftcard. Until approximately three yards outside the entrance, when my brain caught up and went "waitaminute..."
