Dale, are you one of those people who want the store to test your batteries when you buy them? Even though the battery says GOOD until MAR 2019?

How about the four pack of 75w Soft Whites on sale for $1.88?
Do you want the store to screw each of them in before you go?

My favorite nightmare customers.

Not AA cells from Home Depot necessarily but certainly button from Radio Shack where it might have languished fourteen years

Yes especially if there’s the remotest possibility that a used one had been slipped in

If they deteriorated on the shelf as batteries do, if I had had to drive 30 miles to find a retailer who stocked it, if I mistrusted the retailer, if it was the only pak in stock and the package appeared to have been violated, if given upcoming legislation that made them very difficult to find……….

@Joe Nation,
Looking for new remote, Hell. If I ever lose the charger to my cell, it'll be cheaper to replace the phone than trying to find the one unique charger in the known universe that fits my phone.

Sorry, Mary Ann. Just couldn't help getting off topic.

@roger,
I don't worry about losing a remote! Hell, I'm still trying to find one of my wives! I keep reaching down between the sofa cushions, but all I get is dog hair.

@roger,
Roger,
I have about twelve chargers, those lovely black boxes on a wire.
I have one pair of speakers which need one of those [make 120v AC into 9 or 7 or 12v DC] things.
Do any of those that I have fit the speakers?
No.

@Ragman,
Wait.
You want one of your wives to be found?

If any of the crowd of women I married ever wanted to return, I would be the one secreting myself under something a lot more substantial than sofa cushions.

@Joe Nation,
Yes! I'm obliged to find her. My answering machine keeps filling up with calls from my in-laws!
