10 Reasons Why This Item is Man’s Worst Nightmare
For those of you who have been reading my stuff for a little while now, you will probably remember my post about my fear of robots and Google. That being said, this week, one of my bosses sent me a link to something that I deemed as, without a doubt, “Man’s Worst Nightmare”.
You see, as a woman, I’m always curious about other people’s relationships…how they function, what they love about each other, what annoys them the most about each other, etc. With all of my surveillance over the years, I’ve found out what women do that annoys men more than anything else, and yet, somehow, this was still created….
Is anyone else seeing this? I mean, here is a man who, after using this piece of technology for 5 minutes, will probably be more annoyed than he has ever been in his life. You see, this grocery cart is basically every man’s worst nightmare…it’s like a high maintenance woman. “How can you possibly make that connection, PCC?”, you ask? Here’s how:
1. The first thing the cart makes him do is give it his plastic card.
2. Cart then over-enthusiastically says, “Let’s go shopping!” (See the 0:17 mark)
3. As soon as cart suggests that they go shopping, it then says, “I’ll follow your lead”.
A bit too submissive.
4. Cart follows him everywhere he goes.
Every. Where. He. Goes.
5. The man wants to have Italian for dinner. Before he can put anything in the cart, he has to “run it by her” and scan each item…just to make sure that it’s okay. When he places a certain kind of pasta in the cart, it
annoyingly gently reminds him that it is not gluten-free.
Cart is now watching what he eats.
6. After cart tells the guy that it’s the wrong pasta, he laughs as though it didn’t bother him, and then admits that maybe he wasn’t “smart enough to pick the right pasta”. Umm…did you hear that? WA-KSH!!!
7. Upon realising that he chose the incorrect pasta, cart then tells him where to go to find the correct kind.
8. Once the man put in the last item, marinara sauce, cart told him that he had everything on his list (i.e. “Don’t buy anything else. You can’t afford it.”)
9. Once the shopping is complete and cart has everything that it needs, it says, “I have calculated your total. You have indicated that I should put this on your account” (i.e. Not mine).
10. Once the man is finished shopping and no longer needs cart around, he says “goodbye”. He is then greeted with the silent treatment.
Okay, okay…maybe I’m being a little too rough on cart. Maybe it has some redeeming qualities. Maybe it brings him breakfast in bed and laughs at all of his jokes…of course, breakfast would still be in the packaging and cart’s laugh would be rather robotic, but I’m sure that’s worth it.
If not, there are plenty of other carts in the sea, right?
Would you ever use a grocery cart like this?
If so, how long do you think you could stand it?
Does this grocery cart remind you of anyone you know? (Please don’t say PCC…)
