In the World of Spark-people, could there be anything more frustrating than the bathroom scale? Countless complaints are registered and now it is time the SCALE stand trial for it's unwillingness to tell the truth! That is, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing BUT the truth!!
Your honor, if it please the court, we wish to show admissible evidence of the

And now for the verdict in the case of Bathroom-Scales VS. The People
In conclusion, perhaps we can put the scale to rest as being 'all knowing' since today
sufficient proof was provided, proving the Scale to be charged GUILTY! … Remember,
it is a piece of metal that is 'one tool''; it is fickle and can change from day to day.
Hang in there if it has caused frustration. Things have a way of changing as we do not
