When you buy apples and oranges and other produce at the supermarket, do you use the scales to weigh your stuff?

Do the scales show kilograms as well as pounds and ounces?

    I only weigh produce before checkout  if I'm using one of those handheld scanners so I can bag my groceries as I shop and then pay when I'm finished. I don't know if the scales offer metric options. I'll try to look next time I'm there.

    That's all right, everyone has been saying the scales weigh only in pounds and ounces.

      [Really, people?  Am I the first one or the only one who sees that this is a trick question?  What amateurs!]


      No, Kit, I do not weigh my stuff while standing there in the middle of the public supermarket with a bag of apples in one hand and a bag of oranges in the other, Dude!  For one thing, I don’t want to get arrested (again), for another thing, it’s no fun trying to wrangle that rascal when it gets out of control anyway, so getting it back in the bullpen isn’t worth the trouble of displaying it for frivolous reasons. Speaking of which, I already have enough women following me around or slipping notes to me even without showing off the Randy Candy, so waving it in front of crowds of them would only compound my problems. Do I weigh my stuff in the supermarket? Grrrrrrrrr.

    Only occasionally. And they ONLY show grams/kilograms, we went metric more than forty years ago.

    I weigh apples and oranges before I buy them if they're part of a recipe that I'll use.  If I buy them to eat them by themselves, I don't bother to weigh them.  The scales have only grams and kilograms.
