For someone like me who grew up with the metric system the imperial system will always seem wrong and vice versa. The only thing we use inch for still is TV and monitor screens.
Even when both using the metric system it is never used the same. For example my Brazillian fiance had never heard of a hektogram (100 gram) before she came to Sweden and just used grams and kilograms (1000 grams). And my Japanese friend measure flour and sugar in recipes with grams while we in Sweden use liter, deciliter or mililiter making it hard for me to understand his recipe.
It is all just about what you are used to.
I think we can all agree though that the English using stones to measure their wieght is hilarious!
