Do.you look stupid with a shopping trolley

Recommended Posts

Hi, I suffer from a bad back and don't have a car so end up carrying shopping in a rucksack or bags.

Do people think that unless you are of an older generation a shopping trolley makes you look stupid.

Thanks

I see a lot of people using them now, plus they are doing more "funky" designs, I also see young people using them to carry lots at carboots. People probably use them at festivals too. 

Dont worry about it.

Save your back 100% wear & tear by just ordering home delivery, get some other chump to get your shopping for you. 

Avoid the traffic, traffic cameras, speed cameras, civil enfrocement officers, bashed car doors, beggars, chuggers, drunks, parking issues, parking charges, screaming kids, surly staff, & the great unwashed "general public"

I work with the elderly and to be honest I see these things as an awkward pain in the arse. If you’re doing a lot of shopping they might not be the best thing for your back as you twist to use them and you’ll notice it with a decent amount of weight in there.
 

The wheels are generally terrible too and they don’t do well at speed, mainly cause they’re designed for little old ladies who can’t walk fast


A good backpack will spread the weight onto your hips. Look for hiking backpacks or army surplus, I used to them in the navy and believe me the can make a load feel like half the weight. you’ll also open yourself up to 100% less chance of ridicule

You can get rucksacks that are fitted with a telescopic handle and wheels. Our train drivers at work have them as they complain of back ache whilst lugging around their gear all day. They look pretty decent as it goes.
