I have never worked in a professional kitchen, just home kitchens, but I did ask my wife [before our divorce lol] "I'm going to have to weigh a lot out here hun, could you get me the long weight, please?   After a while I said "I've had a long wait" where have you been?"  It was blessed peace in our house for the next few hours, she left me on my own and wouldn't speak.  heaven!
