The US needs to start adopting the word trolley.

    edit: Plastic carts can be known as Poly/s

    What are the most idiotic habits of the Yankees then, Limey?

    What would us Brits poke fun at?

    I'm actually against polarization, binary thinking, good vs. evil, East vs. West, left vs. right, black vs. white, the misuse of Occam's razor to reduce things to overly-simplified dichotomies.
    Just about everything is shades of grey and a lot more nuanced and nebulous. You have to be careful that you don't fall for some Sun Tzu tactic of divide and conquer, or shut yourself into an echo chamber.
    Read, travel, and avoid echo chambers.

    1) You are in a supermarket. You are pushing a trolley through it. You come upon the bread aisle. What is it like? Details, please.

    it have loves and loves of bread of many verities. I skip all of them and head full steam to the Hawaiian Sweet Rolls.

    2) You push your trolley further. You're in the dairy aisle. You pick up a bottle of milk. It goes off in four days. What do you do?

    Notify the authorities that there is explosive milk in the dairy aisle. Or maybe just pass it up for the nonexplosive kind. depending on my mood. Either way, I will be avoiding that store in 4 days.

    3) You push your trolley further. You want to buy Oreos. Someone is blocking them. Describe the person. What do you do?

    They are a slow shopper. What I would actually do is weight for them to move by. However, in my mind I might be murdering them for cookies.

    4) You push your trolley further. A sale is announced on the intercom. What items are on sale? Will you buy these items?

    I don't know I can never understand what they say of the store intercoms. Therefore its really a crap shoot on rather I buy it or not.

    5) You push your trolley further. You reach the hygiene aisle. Something is spilt on the floor. Describe it in detail.

    I don't look to closely and I decide to skip this aisle today.

    6) You are at the back of a long checkout queue. A new queue opens right beside you. How do you react?

    I move to the new queue I know this from experience I always move.
