You don't believe most people when they say they dined and dashed only because they forgot to pay the bill.

When Britney Spears says she forgot, you tend to believe her.

You'd probably believe it if she put food in her mouth and forgot to chew.

Actually, it was Spears' security guard -- she says -- who forgot to pay the lunch bill the other day at the Cheesecake Factory in Thousand Oaks, according to TMZ. Spears and boyfriend David Lucado enjoyed an appetizer and a salad.

Spears reportedly said that when the waitress presented the bill, the singer said her security guy would pay. She then took her doggie bag and left.

Except the security guy thought Spears had paid the bill.

D'oh.

Spears' people told TMZ she feels "horrible" and it was an honest mistake.
