Yeah, I accidentally did that to the Crestfallen Warrior in Firelink...those triggers, man. I didn't think I'd ever do that again after hitting Freke in Demon's Souls right when I needed him the most...but I did. Put my controller down, started a fight, and had to farm up 50000 souls for absolution.
Keep in mind that I was SL25, and I'm pretty sure absolution is 2000xSL. So if your SL is already pretty high, it's going to cost ya.

I did the same thing (put the controller down on my couch) which pressed the r1 or r2 button inadvertently and attacked the vendor right outside blighttown. I immediately quit the game through the ps menu to try to kill it before the game saved. I then reloaded and the vendor was attacking my full force and wouldn't stop. I then decided I had to kill him. I had no idea that the guy in the belltower would revert this, and now I've lost out on this awesome vendor that can sell new armor sets as you kill new bosses.
From that point forward, I'm super cautious whenever I'm near a friendly npc. I'll go as far as walking to the opposite room and turning my back to the npc before I set down my controller, JUST IN CASE.
Wish I'd known about that guy after the gargoyles that can make NPC's forgive you, lol. I accidentally attacked the first covenant guy you meet, the sun guy, and I was forced to put him down because I thought it was gonna be like that permanently... Damn
