Can I correct my vision by wearing sign reversed contact lenses?

I messed up ordering some daily disposable contacts off the internet and reversed the sign. I use -2 and -1.5, but accidentally ordered +2 and +1.5.
I didn't notice anything until I put the lenses in, whereupon everything got really, really blurry. My first thought was one or both of the lenses was messed up or I'd reversed them, so I pulled both and put in a new pair. Same result. It was only then that I noticed my mistake.
Well, the vendor won't take them back as the package was opened and I can't really blame them as this was my fault. But I had an idea - would wearing these lenses gradually correct my vision?
I'm a banker and don't know much about optometry, but it sorta seems logical to me, as I envision a number line. And I wouldn't have to lose out on my entire investment in lenses (yes, I am frugal).
GalPal is appalled at my theory, and has hidden the lenses. Can you help me get them back?
