I went to a department store that sells boots. I bought 3 pairs of kids rain boots. 2 pairs are absolutely fine, 1 box has only one boot in it. I will not get back to the mall today before it closes. Would you believe me? How do I make this sound truthful? I’m telling the complete truth, and it sounds ridiculous even to me.

Very likely one was left on display.
It's not your fault. They should really check before they give you them.

it happens and they should have checked first

I'd call tonight, but my guess is that you won't have a problem. You'll return the one boot, and get two -- unless they found the stray boot.

They usually check the boxes when they check you out, so maybe the clerk dropped it, and found it after you left.

Don't worry about it. Most stores wouldn't give you an issue. Just at least call them if you aren't able to go in tomorrow.

An empty box they would perhaps suspect you of lying and stealing the boots, but who would keep just one boot? I think you'll be fine.
