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).
