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

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shopping

this is ALSO why greeters were invented

to peer-pressure people into using shopping carts, basically

if someone refused one upon entering, they'd have the greeter be all like "why not? everyone else has one" lmao
