This morning I was out doing some birthday shopping for my soon to be 5 year old when I just quickly perused the women's sweaters in the shop I was in. I tried on a cute sweater and it was a steal, so I decided to buy it. I got home ripped the tags off the sweater and tried it on. I looked in the mirror and was confused. Somehow I had brought home the wrong sweater.
Did I set down the sweater I wanted while looking at other things? I mentally traced my steps in the store to think when such a switch would've occurred.
Then I thought, how in the world did I buy the wrong sweater? It was the same color and brand, but I didn't even try on a flowy sweater like the one I saw draped on my body in the mirror. Odd, just odd.
I decided to head back to the store and look for the sweater I wanted. When I got there I checked the dressing room rack, the sweater rack, and a few other places I had been earlier. Finally I headed to the register to return my wrong sweater, as I couldn't get my hands on another. When the clerk called on me, I tried to explain that somehow there was a mixup and I wanted to return the sweater that was in the bag. We started to talk about the sweater I wanted and he starts looking over the receipt and asking if the person that checked me out was at the store. I pointed to the other guy that helped me earlier. Before we went any further, the clerk flipped the sweater upside down to look for where he could reattach the tag I pulled off. That's when I saw IT.
The sweater WAS THE ONE I purchased, I just tried it on upside down at home. Now, in my defense the sweater is very odd shaped and has a large cowl neck.

I looked at the clerk with a bright red face and said, oh my goodness that is the sweater I bought! I realized in that moment, I must've tried it on upside down. We both had a good laugh and he placed the sweater back in the bag. I walked out very embarrassed and definitely a bit humbled.
