Circuit City's AA Battery Packaging Is Remarkably Sturdy

Reader Dave has an issue with Circuit City’s battery packaging.
I ordered some batteries on sale from Circuit City, recently. When they arrived, the package made insane amounts of noise. I opened it up and found that the packages were basically destroyed and dozens and dozens of batteries were loose. For some reason, there’s something really disquieting about having a box full of loose batteries come in the mail – maybe it’s the low-toned clacking sound they make?

Yikes. It’s like AA battery confetti in there.
