Maybe it's just me ...

.... but I've noticed something kind of odd at the supermarket produce section lately.   The scales seem to be missing.

   I hit a couple of stores while doing my "big shop" this week.   Usually, both of them had a scale or two hanging above the produce cases, or at least in easy reach.   

 No more.   In one, the scale was on the far side of the department.  In the other, a single scale was on a table, tucked behind the potatoes.

Perhaps people were weighing their children on the scales and breaking them? Or the little darlings were hanging from them?

Or do the stores fear that folks will see just how much those half-dozen tomatoes or whatever will cost, and won't buy them?

'Tis a mystery.  And an annoying one at that ...
