Quick, start the car!!!

I would like to reminisce upon the new IKEA commercial where the lady looks at her receipt, sees what killer deals she got, is afraid it is a mistake and they will catch it, so she quickly runs to her car and is yelling at her husband to "start the car" in an effort to make a quick get away!!!
Well, today I had a moment that reminded me of that. Brad and I went to this store in West Valley City called Lucky Aces. They sell merchandise that has been returned to high end stores for killer deals. We have been looking for a nice dining room style full leather chair for my music room for quite some time. I have seen a few I really liked at Tai Pan trading for $100 which was actually a pretty good deal. Ross was the same price and everywhere else was twice as least. Well, at this store we found the perfect chair. I loved it AND it was 80% off $269.99. Okay, I can handle $54!!! I was thrilled. We also found an umbrella and stand for our backyard for a pretty good deal.
We paid for our chair and umbrella stuff and took the elevator downstairs to the exit and parking area. The store has a security guard that checks your receipt on the way out. He was on the phone with the upstairs people when we arrived. He then informed us that the chair was actually part of a set and we needed to wait while the cashier brought us our other chair. Brad and I looked at each other. Did he really mean we got two very nice leather chairs for $54 TOTAL?!!!! Sure enough, that was the case. As we got the second chair and headed out to our car I seriously felt like we needed to run and "start the car" before they realized their mistake!!! It was awesome.
(disclaimer: I really wouldn't take an extra chair if it was a mistake....I have more integrity than that)
Here is a picture of my chairs and beautiful table in my music room. I love it!!!
