Opinion: where do I buy a six-pack?
A few days ago I wrote about a you beaut Christmas present I received – a wonderful label maker. I also grizzled a little about the fact that batteries were not included. Imagine my annoyance that I didn’t buy the right sized batteries, so now I have a big pack of AA batteries that I don’t really need at present; sure they will get used over the coming months for various things like clocks. I didn’t take all that much notice and didn’t realise that the label maker needed 6 AAA batteries.
Went shopping this morning. I went to buy some AAA batteries. No problem, you’d think. Wrong. The store only stocked packs of four or eight – I needed six. Why do they do that? Now I have two useless batteries. I can’t think of anything else in the house that needs AAA batteries. (I have a sneaking suspicion that something takes AAA batteries but can’t think what it is. Is it one of the remotes? Must check.)
The Good News
So on arrival home I installed the six batteries and stored the two spare batteries in a place I’ll probably forget about. I fired up the label maker. Now here’s the good news – it does a fantastic job. All I need now is plenty of time to go and label everything in sight.
Ha ha – just let me loose.
Now – if only I could get it away from my wife; it was a combined present!
