Well, in her defense, she probably meant she didn't know whether it took AA or AAA. My mom's the same way, she's always handing me electronics to put the batteries in. AA and AAA batteries drive her nuts because they're not that different in size from looking at the battery compartment. Then, she can't see the diagram on the battery compartment that tells you which way to put the batteries in because they make it so small (and usually etch the words out in the plastic itself, so you don't even get the advantage of differing colors in text and background to help you out).
