I once read a work of fiction (I can't seem to find it on Google) in which a character said something along the lines of
"I'd like it if the phrase 'with all due respect' was followed, just once, by some sentiment that was actually respectful."

The Half Blood Prince, chapter 3:

Quote
"Ah, good evening Harry," said Dumbledore, looking up at him through his half-moon glasses with a most satisfied expression. "Excellent, excellent."

These words seemed to rouse Uncle Vernon. It was clear that as far as he was concerned, any man who could look at Harry and say "excellent" was a man with whom he could never see eye to eye.

“I don't mean to be rude --" he began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

"--yet, sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely. "Best to say nothing at all, my dear man. Ah, and this must be Petunia."

I've read that, but I don't think that was it.

Why when searching Amazon for "AA batteries" does the "Best Seller" tag show up on AAA batteries?!

I ran out of double A's, and I searched Amazon for AA batteries and I bought the best seller one - upon opening it I see it's a hundred pack of AAA batteries. Really frustrating.

Now it's not showing for me either. I guess Jeff Bazos lurks here on DDF.

Or perhaps you accidentally typed or it got autocorrected to AAA?

-1. I doublechecked a few times. All the other options were for AAs.

ETA: It's back up again

Don't blame Amazon, blame the thousands of stupid valued buyers who search for AA and buy AAA. These morons make my job quite difficult, tough, rough, hard, antonymically simple, difícil, arduous, confusing, unintuitive, impossible, you know that word for something that is the opposite of easy, to do.

Don't know about you, but I have no expectation of any search to be that perfect. All the more so for an item like batteries which can have more than one type on the same product page.
