Haha, here's one man's rather random take on something to consider when thinking about buying a bath scale. Personally, I have no problem with them, but apparently some do - maybe it's not limited to just one person? You decide after reading this:
"It always amazes me how fun and exciting it can be to decorate and improve our homes. Even the smallest of touches can make a huge difference. It doesn't even matter if you're renting and apartment; you want it to be fully equipped and looking wonderful. No one wants their sacred spot to resemble a dump. Come on; this is the place we retreat to after a long day at work or lounge casually in on the weekends. My wife and I certainly try and keep our home looking pristine and comfortable. But, last weekend she introduced a new catalyst into our sacred dwelling. More specifically, she stuck a bath scale in our master bathroom. This is the first time we've ever owned a scale. Okay, just to be clear, this is not the sort of additions I encourage for the home. So far it's only been trouble.
This may sound a bit stereotypical, but I'm going to run with it anyway. A bath scale and contemporary women don't mix. Let me put it this way, the high-tech looking bath scale that now resides next to our tub doesn't affect me in the slightest. This is probably due to the fact that I don't use it. Then why is it there you may ask? Because my wife wanted one. And not just any old rinky-dink bath scale, but rather one from Sharper Image. Yeah, you know the one I'm talking about right off the bat. It's clear, it's digital, and it measures body fat as well as weight. She just had to have it. Apparently with her new diet plan, she has to weigh in each and every day. This is a constant headache for me. Now I have to listen to her stomp around each morning a 6am and gripe to herself about her weight. In short, it STINKS! But, to make it that much worse, my teenage daughter does the same thing. Who in the world needs to know their body weight every single day? It's a tad over the top if you ask me.
So there you have it; I'm not a huge fan of the modern-day bath scale. Clearly it bothers me because I don't want the emotional hassles that go along with it. Can I toss the bath scale to the curb? Of course not! It was over a hundred bucks. Plus, my wife would kill me. Now, just remember, if your spouse is ever looking into purchasing a bath scale, just say NO."
