Won't Miss #39 - walking to shops, the pain
Having to walk (or ride a bicycle) to shop forces you to carry a lot of stuff with you on the way home. If you buy a lot of heavy things like soda, certain heavy vegetables, milk, etc., you can easily be weighed down with an extra 20 pounds. If you want to buy something really big, you have to awkwardly balance it on your bike to struggle to haul it along as you walk with difficulty if you can't wait for delivery or if the store doesn't offer it.
I won't miss being a packhorse when I shop.
