My son, Cole, needed 2 AAA batteries for the remote control at the church. With all of the equipment we have up there that require batteries, nothing requires that size. After we had lunch, I told him I would stop at the store if he wanted to go in by himself and purchase batteries with his allowance. At first he said, “No! I’m not Joe, I can’t go in there alone.” Once he realized that was his only way to get the batteries, he decided to go in.
He had $6.00 cash and went inside. Joe, his little brother, says, “Mom, I better go in and check on him. He’s probably crying or something.” I told him no, and that his brother could handle this. He came out without the batteries to ask for more money. I gave him a few extra dollars and he went back in. He came out this time with the pack of batteries.
He laid them on the seat in the car and I noticed they were AA batteries. When I told him that, he said, “No mom, there’s AA and AAA in the package. I chose this pack because it had what I needed and it was the cheapest one. The other packs were all over $8.00 and this pack was only $6.79.” I might have actually had a tear in my eye at that moment. And I might mention here that he had no plastic bag. 🙂
