The Dangers of Auto-Fill
I was just bidding on a postcard of a hotel in Evanston, Illinois, on eBay, and my browser auto-filled a field. I hit Place Bid before I realized that auto-fill had kicked in. This is how eBay replied:

Sorry, your bid amount of $6,179,730,300.00 is too large. Please go back and check it again.

Phew! Thanks, eBay. Good to know you've got my back.
