I thought I was the only "criminal" doing this. I usually place my bags so that they hang a bit and then I use my foot to pick up the bag slowly and make it magically weigh slightly below the allowed weight limit. Oh the hundreds of dollars I've saved by taking advantage of these dumb*****!!!! Suck on this Continental, American, Delta, Air Canada, Condor and Lufthansa!!!
