Bus Shelters Announces Your Weight

Self-conscious about your weight?  Think twice before sitting on a bench in a bus shelter in Amsterdam!

To be more precise, some bus shelters in Amsterdam have been fitted with weight meters that show people waiting for the public transportation what their weight is and whether they should start losing some extra flab.

LOL, just a guy. Yeah, such brilliant use of sarcasm, wasn't it, and because "it's just neatorama", which made about as much sense as a screen door on a submarine.

I like how thisisit described a situation completely out of fiction, then called the people within that scenario 'typical' distainfully.

He/She was 'unpleasently not suprised' by the characters in his/her own invention. That's quite interesting!

(and no packpedaling with claims of 'joking' or 'sarcasm', just to save face.)

This is absolutely abhorrent. For people struggling with their weight, whether it be trying to lose weight or trying to recover from an eating disorder, this would be incredibly humiliating. I had anorexia several years ago and although i am comfortable with my body now, showing my weight to everyone around me would definitely bring back the feelings of shame and self-loathing that i felt for so long back then.
