@roger,
Good solution. Or, I should say, best solution.

Years ago I had the same problem with a stupid-rug I bought. I returned it and exchanged it for a smart-rug. That solved my problem. Unscrupulous salespersons will always try to sell the stupid-rugs to unwary customers. Always ask the salesperson where you can find smart-rugs. Otherwise, they will send you to the stupid-rug aisle. There ought to be a law . . .

@Glennn,
Actually, they directed me to the smart rug aisle. They knew they would have a quick sale in the stupid rug department as soon as I saw the smart rug prices. I fell for it.

@roger,
This will both surprise and anger you at the same time, but you should be made aware of the fact that there is no difference between the price of stupid-rugs and smart-rugs. I was in Target one day and just happened to be standing behind one of the workers when she was talking with another worker on her walkie-talkie. I clearly heard the worker on the other end say, “Got another one heading to rugs.”

Curious, I followed her as she headed to the rug aisle. I had been following her anyway, so it really wasn’t out of my way (that’s right, I didn’t just happen to be standing behind her--I have a problem; big deal. I‘m working on it). Anyway, she turned down the rug aisle and I watched as she grabbed a long horizontal pole above the smart-rug area and gave it a turn. That flipped all the price markers to the other side, which then showed a significant increase in the prices of the smart-rugs. When the guy looking for a rug arrived and saw the price difference between smart-rugs and stupid-rugs, like you, he opted for the stupid-rug.

After following that worker around some more, I finally got up the guts to ask her out. I said, “Hey Judy, I’ve been watching you and I saw what you did in the rug aisle.” Long story short, I went home that day with a free rug (a smart-rug) and I’m now married to that woman. You never know when you’re going to run into Miss Right. All in all, a magical day.

@Glennn,
I have rug stories, but I'm busy from being slammed from Max.

@roger,
Now that you have solved the problem, it may die a slow death.

@cicerone imposter,
Has anyone mentioned hairspray? Lots of hairspray?

@Glennn,
They sell hair in a spray can? Does it look natural?

@Neil D,
In the computer room, I have a large chair mat and two long strips that goes from the door to the chair mat, and the other that goes to the closet area.
I could get rid of the long strips if I bothered to remove my shoes before I entered the room, but too lazy for that.

You could gather together the various strands of this thread and create a patchwork quilt.

@lmur,
Yeah. Now try to convince me it would lie flat when I roll a chair over it.

@cicerone imposter,
You think a cement drill would make a quilt lie flat? I don't, even if you put one at each corner.

@roger,
You need to use a screw with washer, and cover the whole shebang with a rug patch.

@cicerone imposter,
Screw and washer. I'm thinking the cement drill is going to weigh more than a screw with or without the washer.

@roger,
I like your imagination. Do you have four drills? Bricks will work.
