    Grocery carts should be used for what they were intended, wheeling your friends home when they've had too much to drink.

    I had one of these in the 5th grade...or thereabouts. I 'thought' I was SO cool.
    OMG....I was never cool. This didn't help. I also loaded that sucker up with several
    different color of pens [[ink), a pencil, a large rubber eraser, a comb...I was just a disgrace.
    Things haven't changed much. :[[

    Yes, I see 200 lb. guys walking tiny dogs all the time. Somehow they look rather
    'mismatched'...but, the wife may have sent them out the door for a walk and no questions asked. Peace in the family!
    My dog walks me...and he ain't tiny.

    Remember these little dudes? I used to be jealous when my friends had four-colored ballpoint pens. Never owned one in my life, but when I picked them up, I could play with them for an hour without writing or drawing anything on paper.

    These were big at my job back in the day. Working in the hospital on 3-11 shift you used 'green' for your charting/paperwork. Night shift used 'red' and day shift used 'blue'. Reading a patients chart was a colorful experience, but easy to detect different shifts. Now it's all on a computer...no pens needed!

    I remember when I was really little, my Grandmother had one of these in the basement. The damn thing scared the bejesus out of me. That 'wringer' looked
    like something out of a horror movie. She actually got her hand caught in there
    once....see...it'd eat you alive given the chance. My Grandparents finally ditched
    the monster and upgraded to something less sinister looking...and kinder.

    My grandma had an old washer with a ringer, too. Things have come a long way. Remember when this was what you used to mow your lawn?

    Yes, and I had to use the darn thing a couple of times. It took forever. Good
    aerobics, I guess? I actually saw some guy using one of these last summer.
    He appeared to have a very small yard. Maybe he thought a power mower
    could be too much? He wasn't that old, either. Do they still sell them??

    I used to have to mow the back garden with one of those when I was a kid. It put me off gardening for life.

    Great question. If they do, their biggest purchasers are probably parents who think their kids need something to do in the Summer besides Playstation.
