Weighty Issues



This is certainly not one of my best friends. But the lights and the colors have always attracted me to the public weighing machines. As a child, I always pestered my mother to give me a one rupee coin to check my weight on the machine. The thrill of seeing that little cardboard card coming out of the machine's mouth continues to be unmatched.

Oh my gosh, I haven't seen one of these in decades! But we never had any with all those funky lights.

I haven't seen one of those machines in years. Use to be able to find them in some stores, by the door as you entered. The things the card said were sometimes quite funny. Because in addition to weight, they always had some sort of quote or saying typed on them.

It's always only skinny kids and teenagers who want to weigh themselves publicly!

Yeah, I agree with Hilda. Haven't seen them for years. They were ubiquitous at the Railway Stations. Either way, it is a happy sighting.
