(KPLR) - It's a nasty trick to try and save you money. So don’t be duped. Here's JB with The Way It Oughta Be.
I thought I would show you some of the batteries I've gone through this year. AA seems to be at the top of my list.
So when a relative told me I could save big bucks on AA batteries I was all ears. He showed me this YouTube video that says if you buy one of those lantern batteries for 5 bucks, all you have to do is break them open and there are 32 AA batteries inside.
32 AA's for 5 bucks, wow.
Well you guessed it, even with a video that appears to prove it, it's simply not true. It's a hoax that came out a few years ago and gets circulated each year around the holidays.
I guess it's not a crime to put up a hoax like that. But it should be. Life's too short for an exercise that's a waste of time.
I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
