My Scales Mock Me

So I stepped on the scales this morning and instead of giving me a number, the scales showed a word.

“Low,” they said.

Eventually I realized, of course, that the word referred to the low battery charge. At first, however, I felt like the scales were trying to make fun of me by providing a sarcastic response.

  1. When my scale’s batteries are low or when it has another error, it makes this face:


    Which, before I realized what it meant, was kind of iffy.


  2. I do not understand why scales are built to need batteries. When I was a child, scales worked perfectly well with self-contained springs; no batteries were needed. Why is needing batteries an improvement??
