Any civic minded man or woman will have encountered the scales of justice at some stage of his or her life before, even if only in physical form. Go to any number of austere institutions, and as you mount the stairs towards those halls where rules of law are applied, and you will see her. She adorns the steps of most courthouses the world over.
You will notice that she has a heavy weight to bear. She is always burdened with weighing her scales of justice, blindfolded even. But on most occasions in everyday life, most hardworking and productive men and women would hardly notice. No matter where you walk or congregate, there will always be scales.
Go to the house of scales, and it is from this point that the shipping & receiving of scales commences on behalf of every law-abiding and decent man and woman. He or she will, at some stage of his or her life have associations or encounters with the green grocer, the butcher, printer or apothecary. Products of note are mass-produced by heavy industry, and with the input of its industrial scales.
Health services and science would not have been able to function fully without the input of its medical and lab scales. Go to any supermarket today where fresh produce is the order of the day and you will see that every effort is made to produce a fair price for the consumer. That is what retail portioning scales do well.
No mechanized or electronic scale would be able to function properly without its requisite parts and components, all of which is provided by the agencies responsible for the shipping and receiving of your regular scales. Life would not be fair without them.
