a shopping mistake

If you like figuring out accounting errors then todays puzzle, a shopping mistake, will be right up your street.

A lady was buying some furniture for her house and the bill came to $70.

As she was in a rush when she had left home she had forgotten to bring her reading glasses and so she gave the shopkeeper what she thought were two $50 notes.  She actually gave the shop keeper two $100 notes.

Unfortunately the shop keeper was busy dealing with another shopper at the same time as he was trying to deal with the lady shopper. Because he was distracted he gave the lady what he thought were three $10 notes.  He actually gave her three $50 notes.

Between the lady and the shop keeper who ended up better off than they should?
