Enough time has passed since he last bought them, for local man, Peter Thape to have forgotten how piss-poor Pound Shop batteries are.
Thape has needed two batteries for his beard trimmer for about a month, and has set off to make the big purchase today.
Thape could spend £2.95 on the two batteries from a proper shop, or buy 24 for a pound, which he subconsciously knows will only last 15 seconds in total.
‘No contest – I’ll see you in the Pound Shop,’ said Thape.
‘Might as well buy a strip of the AAA’s for the remotes too,’ he added.
