A friend noticed this label on a step stool at work, and commented: “Look at that weight limit. This stool should not be sold in America.”

I have to agree, especially since people using these stools are often carrying something. If they are carrying 20 pounds, the weight limit of the person is only 180. And consider that the weight of the average American man is now 196.
