fun fact, people apparently fucking hated shopping carts when they were first invented
because they reminded women of baby carriages, and insulted men's ability to act all tough carrying shit on their own
the dude who invented them had to straight-up hire fucking models to push shopping carts around his stores just to clue people in on their usefulness lmao
Sidebar - Weren't "greeters" invented to make you feel obligated to grab a cart so you'd buy more stuff? I feel like that was a part of lore in the homeland of Walmart (where I'm from).
@vantablack reminds me of the story I heard when I was younger that they had to make the gps voice in cars a man in Germany because they woudnt listen to a woman giving directions.
@vantablack I absolutely buy more things I didn't intend to buy when I use a (even small) shopping cart instead of a hand basket.
