Just got a lump of unexpected money. Want to take a vacation. Looking for airline tickets; go to Priceline.com, and bid for two tickets. And I make a big mistake: for the amount bid, I put the total I expected to pay. What I should have done is put the price per ticket. So the amount I bid was 1/2 of the unexpected money. I push the button to do it, and lo and behold there is the real total:

Gone is the whole lump of unexpected money.

What is worse, is that now I have to tell my husband.
