Prices of food items sold by weight

Maybe it's just me but I get very annoyed by stores who post prices by quarter pound or half pound. I understand that prices for certain items are high..which might deter buyers from actually purchasing it after the sticker shock but as a consumer, it annoyes me and it's confusing especially if one store has different ways of displaying prices. For example, at some smoke fish houses, they post their prices like $14.99 and underneath it, in a tiny print, says, 1/4 lb. At a local lunch buffet, price says $7.75 and it has tiny print that says, 1/2 lb.
I wish they'd all post prices by one pound.
