The Blind Man and His Milk

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

A blind man walks into a grocery store to buy some milk. On his way in, he slips on a water puddle and plows into another shopper. He politely apologizes and starts to mosey along. A short time after that, he finds the refrigerator containing the milk and proceeds to the counter with his purchase. He pays with a 10 dollar bill and tells the cashier, after receiving his change, that he should be getting more money back than what the cashier gave him. The cashier, noting that the man was blind, said that he must be mistaken - he gave him back 7 dollars, because his milk cost 3. The blind man realized his mistake, thanked the cashier and went on his way.

What had he realized that he had done wrong?
