What do you do if you can't count?

Hypothetically, you go to an art supply store on Saturday and buy three pieces of backing board at around $5/each. You paid for them by holding a tag up to the cashier and telling him, "I have three."

A few hours later, when you're cutting them to size, you realize that you actually have four of them. You're confused for a moment then remember, "Oh yeah, I grabbed an extra in case I mis-cut one." Now you have four pieces of backing board, but you only paid for three. Backing board doesn't spoil, and you'll use it eventually, so returning it doesn't really make sense. Plus, it gets a tiny bit beat up in transit.

The store is a national chain of art supply stores, and one that you do a lot of business with.
