Check those meat weight labels!

I was at a supermarket, which shall remain unnamed, looking for a fresh turkey earlier today. Digging around for a small one, I found one that had a lableled weight of 0.200 Kg and priced at .... $0.61. Wasn't going to take it initially as this particular branch didn't have self-cash. So tried at cashier who would be indifferent, and.... it worked! Cashier just had a brief second glance and let it through. Took the turkey home and it weighed in at 6.2 Kg (did buy another that weighed in at 6.4 Kg and was priced just under $20 so this turkey should have priced around $19).

Now to figure what to do with the damn thing except freeze it for X'mas.
I smile when I see container ships sailing past my house laden with stuff made in China

Lol... Awesome.

Dumb dumb employee was probably weighing them too quickly and took that one off the scale too quickly while pressing the print button. Instead of reading 6.2kg it read whatever random number was there before the scale reset to zero.

Their loss is your gain.
