qUEEN OF rETURNS

Friend R and I just got back a couple of hours ago with the impossible.
We took hubby's chair and loaded it up in the truck and went to Costco. The chair is is life. He sleeps in it everyday for a nap and sits and watches TV in his waking hours. It was 2 1/2 years old and falling apart. Part due to weight, part due to the manufacturer. Friend R is the Queen of returns. She can get anything returned. At first the "nice" people at Costco were going to give her what the price is now (even though they didn't have any in stock) since it was that old. No receipt (which we didnt' have) would've given us $249.47. Original amount $375.00.
After an hour of talking, arguing and then laughing with the nice lady at the return desk, we walked out of there with $375.00! I tell you, she's good.
So we of course told hubby we only got the $249 and made us a nice little profit to split.
SSSSHHHHHHH.

Did you at least buy him another chair or is he sitting on the carpet where his chair used to be wondering what happened?

Personally, I thought the chair was uncomfortable to sit in anyway. Great for sleeping but just sitting, not so good.
