My father's answer to outraegeous requests (can we stay out all night, etc.) was "Just do what you think is right." Worked every time.

Just dont buy them at Costco. They come two to a package, all wrapped up in clear plastic tape. You have to return BOTH of them and retain the original packaging.

Oh yeah, and dont buy them at Walmart either...
