It turned out to be useful
A shopping cart in the yard is kind of a staple of the College House. Ending up in the shopping cart, in a cocktail dress, drinking a Rolling Rock, that’s as essential a [non-academic] college experience as it gets, right?
Our shopping cart stuck around until the landlord was showing the other half of the house to prospective tenants. I don’t recall if he took it back to Whole Foods or made us do it, but after that we never saw it again.
Totally the worst thing about 1808? Living two blocks from a Whole Foods at a time in my life when I had no money.
