So did you really go to the airport and they told you this?

Everytime i've been to the airport, they have never checked the weight of my carryon, they never really had the chance to. So unless the airline guy/gal told you you couln't carry that bag on, i would just ignore it. Maybe they say that because the overhead apartment can only hold a certain amount of weight and they dont want to have a ton of heavy bags stuffed into it, and have the risk of it falling? i dont know if that's the fact, im just thikning aloud.
