A man was at a supermarket.

A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on.
When he got to the check-out line, the lady got in front of him.
“Pardon me,” she said. “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s just that you look just like my son, who died recently.”
“I’m very sorry,” replied the young man. “Is there anything I can do for you?”
“Yes,” she said. “As I’m leaving, can you say ‘Goodbye, Mother’, it would make me feel so much better.”
“Sure,” the young man said.
As the woman was leaving, he called out, “Goodbye Mother!”
As he stepped up to the check-out counter, he saw that his total was $127.50.
“How can that be?” He asked. “I only purchased a few things!”
“Your mother said that you would pay for her,” said the clerk.
