It was apartment no. 504 - which is mine!

I quickly checked my receipt, only to realize that I paid for my neighbour in 505. In 3 years of living in the same apartment building, this is the first time this has happened!
Anyway, this morning I paid my own bill. When I got home, I sorted it out with my building manager who just chuckled as he said, "Change paper!" (meaning: You took the wrong account! )
