I was walking along a laneway and there was a large box with German writing on it. I can't read German and so I don't know what was in the box, but the weight of the box and its contents grabbed my attention. It said 14,6 kgs. I missed the comma and thought it was a full stop. Can't be I thought, the box alone would be heavier than 14.6 kg. I looked closer and realised it was 14,6 kg. There was another lower weight too, gross and tare weights I suppose.
So it would be 146 kg. Why insert a comma? Is this a standard German practice?
