Subject: Re: buggy vs. cart
donny grayson asks about shopping carts...
where i grew up (upstate ny) they were only "shopping carts", that i
remember (usually not shortened to "cart") (i also worked in a
grocery store, in the early 80s).
in south africa (as well as other more-recently-british places, i
think), they use "trolley", but i think i'd heard that in the states
too (perhaps when i lived in massachusetts?).
