Pounds vs. Kilos
Posted in General
Afternoon watch, 4 bells (2:19 pm)

I just carried a rather largish box to my boss's office. It was on my side of the building, which is opposite his. I looked at it, saw that it said > 30 lbs, did a test pick-up, and decided to man up and carry it since I couldn't find a hand truck or a cart.

Well, I got it to his office and set it down to have him point out that the box really said > 30 kg, and in another spot said > 75 pounds. I probably shouldn't have done that.

I guess I'll know tomorrow.
