Kilos Vs Pounds Laundry Scam
I forgot all about the ever sneaky, scammie ways of the Latino world, I took my training, made my bones in Mexico for Travel, one of the most corrupt, dishonest cultures on the planet.

Today, I went to a couple of places to have my laundry done and remembered what I forgot…

I have had my laundry done for years; I know my laundry weighs between 2 and 5 kilos, and normally about 3-4 Kilos.

1 Kilo is 2.2 Pounds.

I took my laundry into a place, not sure, what they were doing, but I they used a scale for pounds and said it was Kilos, whereby they doubled the weight. I went to the second, and told him of the swindle so I could get the weight done closer to correct, the scales are pulled and sprung and do not function correctly, too loose, therefore I only paid for one extra kilo in the second place.


If you want to be fare, take all the clothes in your bag to the delicatessen or post office and have, your clothes weighed before you leave. Figure out how many Kilos and Pound all your laundry weighs, then you can guesstimate the weight when you have your laundry weighed by the ever-crooked world. This also helps you to know if your bag is over-weight for the airplane.

Tourist, nobody volunteers to be cheated as well.
