Surely sleep-driving is not the explanation...

Weird credit card charge..can you help?

This is a somewhat odd occurrence and I’m looking for ideas on how it could have happened. I checked my online account for one of my credit cards this morning and noticed a pending charge at a fast food restaurant, dated yesterday. I recognized the resaurant number as the one a few miles from my house and I eat there a few times a month (usually using this card), but I did not eat there yesterday or anytime in the past week. I have an authorized user on my account, but I have both his card and my card in my possession. This was the only unknown charge. I contacted my credit card company and they said they could not do anything until it actually posted to my account, which would happen in 1-3 days. I will of course call back then, but in the meantime I’m wondering if anyone has an idea on how this could happen. I checked my account and have no transactions in the previous month at this place that match this amount (so it doesn’t seem as if they accidentally ran a charge twice). I currently live alone (just broke up with my live-in boyfriend a few days ago) and I am terrified that I may have done this in my sleep because I can’t think of any other explanation. I have a history of talking and walking in my sleep since I went off anti-depressants (Wellbutrin and Lexapro) about a year ago, but never sleeping or eating. I’ve never taken Ambien or any sleep aids so I’m pretty sure this isn’t what happened. Ideas?
