So true! Why waste an hour pretending for sake of you thinking someone else might think you're dumb, when you could've just said, "sorry my mistake, I actually just remembered I hadn't created an account yet!" I don't understand why that freaks out people so much. It's not a big deal.

Trust me, that has happened to me too, although I wasn't compelled to called customer service. And even though you could've cured cancer with those five minutes you wasted, I wouldn't worry about it.

I too have tried to remember a password I had for an account only to realize I hadn't created one yet (although I've never called customer service about it). If you're like most people that are on the Internet a lot than you probably have many accounts with different websites and stores and it's hard to keep track of which ones you have. My advice is to write a note in your phone, or computer, of all your accounts with each password, you can use some signs (like *) to block out some letters if you're worried about someone reading it, or just label it under a weird name for a note so no one will open it.

Or use lastpass or something similar. Forgetting you even made an account is easily checkable on most sites though. Forgot password link, use your email address and 99% of the time it will tell you if that address is on the system.
