I don't get why everyone else doesn't use Amazon Basics batteries...
oh wait, everybody does want to use them...
I don't get why Amazon Basics batteries are out of stock all the time.
I didn't know these existed. I'll definitely give them a try.

It is clear to me that you do not have a child. AA (and preferably AAA, as well) batteries are something I must always have on hand.
People who don't use real alarm clocks. My buddy is going to be an hour late to work today because he updated ios and the new alarm clock wasn't loud enough (either it changed the alarm tone or the volume was reset to something lower...don't know)
Sure, my phone has a perfectly good alarm, and it is super handy compared to trusting a hotel clock when travelling...but my alarm clock doesn't get software updates (or have other apps that can crash or drain the battery) and it is always by my bedside. In fact, it has been waking me up reliably since 2005.
Why is Cracklin' Oat Bran so expensive? The box is smaller than the normal cereal box, but it would be expensive even for a normal sized box. (I have fond memories of Cracklin' Oat Bran from the time of my youth, so I am inclined to buy it.)
