Pay by weight?

I ordered a sandwich for lunch today at the office cafeteria. I could get whatever I wanted on it, but the price was determined by the ounce of total sandwich.

My whole life I've ordered everything on my sandwich at Subway and favored supreme pizzas because I was always hungry and wanted to get the most food possible per dollar. If this "pay by the ounce" trend catches on, it could break the pocketbooks of hungry young men and teenage boys everywhere! Thank goodness I'm trying to watch my weight now--perhaps having my food weighed will both make me more aware of how much I'm imbibing AND encourage me to not eat as much.

(BTW the sandwich had grilled peppers and squash on it--yum!)
