Chairman: Members of the Board, we have before us a motion to switch to metric and make it the standard of measurements for all works and tools developed by our institution. Discussion?
Mr. Benchley: Mr. Chairman, I believe you are a right-thinking individual, but will the public go along with this? What will the consumers think of eliminating inches and feet?
Ms. Mesa: Will all respect to you, Mr. Benchley, I can’t imagine anyone not finding it easier to measure things in centimeters and meters, instead of inches and feet.
Mr. Benchley: Really? Well, just look at this.
6 chair dinning table – $500
Bought this counter height table a few years ago. Sat at it 2 times possibly. It has two table extensions, 6 chairs, and is in great condition. Measures about 8’10” long x 3″ wide with the extensions installed. Getting rid of because it is too big for just 2 people! Nothing wrong with this table! Purchased from the furniture store in moscow for $1200 asking $500. Must haul! Call, email, or text for more information
Ms. Mesa: That’s terrible! This will keep us from joining the rest of the world for centuries!
Chairman: Three inches wide? That’s not a table, that’s a balancing beam. I guess we’ll table this discussion for now. Meeting adjourned.
And thanks, OMV, for hauling this ad to my attention.
