I've had purchases totalling $7.11 at the correct store, but I don't think I've ever had $6.66

I don't know about making the cashier uncomfortable, but I remember one time being very uncomfortable myself. I lived at the East-West Center on the U of Hawaii campus as housing staff back when I was a grad student. I had already lived in Thailand before, and another American who had lived in Thailand when I did, but like me had returned to the US, stopped in Hawaii for a visit on his way back to Thailand for a vacation. We were shooting the shit one night, and he brought up his concern about being able to find big-enough condoms in Thailand. (No, really, this isn't a joke.) So I told him, "Well, Mike, if you're really worried, maybe you should pick some up here before you go." So we moved on to other topics and discovered we'd run out of beer close to midnight. There was a supermarket not far from campus that stayed open until 1am, so we went to get more beer. But Mike also picked up this giant package of condoms. So there we were in my regular grocery store, two guys buying two six-packs of beer and a big ol' case of condoms at midnight. My friend was rather innocent and didn't seem to notice my turning red. I got us out of there as fast as I could.
Everything happens for a reason. But sometimes the reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
