Expensive books

I dreamed last night that I had driven to Best Buy right before they closed to pick some things up at their book sale.  They weren't going to sell books anymore, so they had priced all their books really low.  I got a good deal on one particularly nice reference book—normally $60, I got it for $5.  Or I thought I did.  I got home, looked at my receipt, and saw that not only was I charged the full $60 for that book, but there were also plane tickets and other large items on my receipt.  My total was a few dollars short of $2,500, and they were already closed when I noticed.  (I had paid with a credit card and they never told me my total.)  I spent the rest of the dream listing all of the things that were wrong with my receipt and calculating what the total should have been.

And then I woke up and realized that I was actually dreaming about my car insurance settlement, because that's pretty much exactly what I've been doing for the past week.
