Ethical Dilemma

So, I was at the grocery store earlier today, and the man in front of me had a case of water underneath his cart that I'm pretty sure didn't get rung up. A large part of me wanted to mention it in case he just forgot it, which is totally something I would do. But the rest of me didn't want him to yell at me and think I thought he was a thief or whatever, or get indignant because he actually was stealing it. Anyway, it was probably only 3 or 4 bucks but it bothered me. How does one handle that situation?

If the man intended to steal or not, it is certain the cashier made a mistake in not noticing it. After he left, I would have said to her, "You know you missed the water in the bottom of his cart."

Honestly maybe I'm a bitch, but I would probably mention it to someone who works there, discreetly.
