This scale is an asshole.

me: OMG.  This scale can’t even bring itself to tell me how fat I am.

Victor:  What?

me:  This scale.  It’s  being an asshole, and it’s sort of worse that it won’t just TELL ME what I weigh.

Fuck you, scale.

Victor:  That’s an error message.

me:  Awesome.  I’m so fat I broke the scale.

Victor:  No.  You just didn’t use it right.  You have to touch it first, then wait for it zero out.  Then you step on.

me:  I’m too fat to follow instructions.

Victor:  Step away from the scale, Jenny.

me:  It’s even mocking me.  It says “Thinner” ON IT.

Victor:  That’s the name of the brand.

me:  My head hurts.

Victor:  Mine too.  For different reasons.

  128. Dear Jenny,
    I wonder who the first person was to think to themselves “hey..why wait to go to Doctor Honky’s Office to get weighed…why cant I just weigh myself at home?” That person started a shitload of problems for people. They should be considered close to a Hitler in History. Think about it. Or not. I am bored.

  131. How to even the scale: I have a second scale which I put my first scale on and then climb on top. I then pay attention only to the bottom scale which documents how much of the total truly belongs to the intermediate scale itself. Bottom line: My middle scale has really let itself go lately!

  140. Jenny,
    Thank GOD you wrote this in time! I think you can still be saved, if you will follow these steps. I’ve done them for years, and I am fat, but I am not upset all the time.
    * THROW THE SCALE AWAY. If you have contempt for the poor, you give it to Goodwill.
    * You have to see your doctor, and you get weighed then…RIGHT? Defense #1: refuse to get on the scale. Tell the nurse pleasantly to jot down, “patient declined to be weighed”.
    *Now since we are both arthritics, sometimes our doctors will INSIST we be weighed. So in such a case, you tell the nurse you are going to close your eyes when you get on the scale. She should not say the numbers, esp. not if you are in the hall where all can hear, but she should tell you “up” or “down”. They are very obedient.
    You’re welcome, naturally. (And my toes bend in all the same places as yours, so I thought I owed it to you).

  145. I went through several months of thinking my scale was broken becuase it kept flashing an error messag when I stood on it, and I would have to get on, then off, then on before it would weigh me. (Maybe it was begging for mercy, but I wouldn’t let it off…its only job in the world is to tell me what I weigh, and damb it, it dosn’t get to slack off until I do…cause when I slack I gain weight and then refuse to stand on it. Like a scale vacation.
    Anyway, one day my husband walked in and saw me doing the error message dance and was all “what are you doing?” (in a really judgy tone).
    “We need a new scale.” I said. “This one has an error message. I think it’s broken.”
    “It’s not broken.”
    “Yes it is look.” (me demonstrating that I had to step on it twice) “And where the weight should be, it just has random things.”
    “It says bat.”
    “Right. Broken. It should say numbers.” (I may have also used a judgy tone here, because I object to the idea that a scale can tell you how much you weigh relative to the weight of another animal. Sure it was flattering me and saying I was light as a bat. Probably because it wanted something from me. But I could just imagine the day it started using less flattering animal references like “horse” or “hippo”. No thanks. Numbers or nothing, scale.)
    Or, maybe it needs a new battery…” (again in a judgy tone) “Like the message says.”

    I’m not saying he was right, but a new batter did make the message go away…

My feet can be seen in very old paintings of Italian saints. Each toe is a different height and the second is bigger than the big toe; on my right foot, the 3rd toe is the same as the 2nd toe and both are bigger than the big toe. I think they have a mind of their own and grow to their own satisfaction. Jenny, I have never told anybody this before and usually ignore those who laugh at my feet. I feel so much better now that I have “come out” and can accept all my toes. Thank you.

  240. SO happy to hear that someone else has (unhealthy) conversations with and/or about their scales. Also, what’s with brand naming a scale “thinner”? Why not name it Sylvia (the obviously much heavier than me Swedish scale-woman, who eats doughnuts for breakfast while I am content to sip on 2 fluid ounces of kelp juice and silently judge her for her food choices)? I just think that was bad marketing..

  241. At my work, we use a standard scale to weigh packages to ship. And when the box by itself won’t measure, we use the ‘humiliation’ method of weighing: weigh yourself, weigh yourself with the box, subtract the two. And the first two numbers always make us weep.

  242. Thank you for taking the picture carefully so as not to join the list of celebrity snatch shots that no one needs to see. Not that I’m dissing your snatch, but some things should remain a mystery. Like the Loch Ness monster. And your snatch.

  243. I’m pretty sure it makes reference to it being an asshole somewhere in the manual. But that’s redundant because all scales are assholes.

    My 4 yr old thought the name of my scale was actually LIAR as in, “Mommy? Can I see how much I weigh on the Liar?”

  247. This is why I don’t own a scale (which is, coincinentally also why I’m really fat). But I don’t have a fucking scale telling me Error. Which is much better.

  248. I don’t own a scale. They never cooperate. Pretty feet though.

  249. I will only step on a scale if my daughter is the one to read the numbers. Since she can count reliably only up to 29, it’s always good. Today I weigh 47 pounds.

    My dog, however, weighs 804. Time to put puppy on a diet.

  250. I have a rock solid product idea that someone should steal from me and do something with.
    A scale that heckles you.
    In the autotrader.com voice.
    “Please remove the second person from the scale. Please only weigh one person at a time.”
    “Wow, fatty did you really need that last piece of pizza last night.”
    “Ugh, you don’t want to know”
    Ad more witty sarcastic fat jokes here………

  251. @Trish Funk #252,

    We’ve already got that one covered, with the plaintive and snarky way that our Wii BodyBoard would wail with alarm and pain when we stepped on it. I’m pretty sure our standard and oft-repeated, “OH STFU” burned about a chicken leg worth of calories. Eventually.

  253. I have an agreement with the nurse at the doctor’s office. We are on the “honor system” for recording weight. Turns out I’m always down a few lbs from the time before🙂

  254. If it really was a “Thinner” scale, you would be skin and bones and in danger of starving to death. I don’t know why Victor doesn’t understand that.

  257. I’d be way more concerned about my left index toe if I were you. I mean, you can always lose weight, but that toe will probably still be misshapen.

  261. But your toes aren’t hairy like your forehead. That’s a plus isn’t it? I mean, I have to shave my fucking toes for that kind of perfection. Wait, I bet you took that picture, then realized you couldn’t show hairy toes and made it “ERR” a second time didn’t you…but this might just be inappropriate and so I will stop now. Just know that you are not alone in the toe hair department, but perhaps more so with the unicorn hair. Just sayin’. Have a nice day.
