Picture this: it is the holidays and you are sitting around your living room with your family exchanging gifts. The kids have received several toys that they wanted along with some clothes that you wanted for them. After everything settles down a bit and the kids have taken it all in, their next request is to play with the new toys. You look at the box of your son’s new remote control car and it says, “Batteries not included.” Right next to that are the words, “Requires 8 AAA batteries.” You go over to your battery drawer and find 8 AAA batteries. You stand there in your kitchen relieved that you dodged the bullet on that one. Minutes later your daughter comes in with her new electronic talking puppy and asks you to help her.
You look at this box and it also requires batteries. Guess what? You’re all out of batteries, the stores are all closed, and your daughter is standing there with a look of disappointment on her beautiful little face.
This problem could have been avoided if you had thought ahead and stocked up on batteries. With all of the electronic gadgets, toys, smoke detectors and, remote controls in our lives we need to keep a fresh supply of batteries on hand. Another suggestion I have for everyone is when you buy a gift for someone; check to see if it requires batteries. If it does, wrap a pack of batteries up with the present. The person receiving the gift and most importantly their parents will thank you a thousand times over. Small packs of batteries also make great stocking stuffers. So when your shopping for gifts this year make sure you check the boxes for those all to familiar words, “Batteries Not Included.”
