  1. I hate shopping cart how-tows. Because they usually contain an implicit element of theft. Where are the shopping carts for the mods supposed to come from? Don’t tell me everyone just buys them from a shopping cart manufacturer.

    Shopping carts are surprisingly expensive items and getting them regularly stolen from your shop is not fun. And it doesn’t better that you do it because you want to do such a cool (read: stupid) cart mod.
