Do guys use stuff like tsp and Tbsp?? I don't actually know.

I have a set of 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2 spoon sizes, it's an important part of my kitchen, so yes, this guy does! I love cooking! Not sure they are accurate enough though, not like a proper scale set. I've a set of single point digital, which I use to weigh salt for my brackish set up. (Good enough for the job and way cheaper than .00 or the ridiculously priced .000 sets.)
You're the 2nd American I've met here who is seriously against imperial sizes.
We never fully converted! Building sizes are often imperial, wood stocks and bricks etc. newer materials such as gypsum boards (plaster board) are metric. Then we have engineers whitworth (not so common but still in use)
(If the spanner don't fit it's a whit!)
(antique cars have some other sizes, unique almost)
Now we have pints of milk with silly litre conversions on them? And wood sized in MM alongside your regular stock sizes, seriously it's mental!
