a) steps on 2B and indicates to the umpire that the runner needs to retouch his way back to 1B.
b) accidently steps on 2B before throwing the ball into the stands when attempting to throw the ball back to first base.
Neither of these is a proper appeal (I assume that's what you are asking about -- and not the award in (b)). The base left too soon (or the missed base or the runner) must be tagged -- you can't just tag an interim base that the runner must touch.
