Don't uninvent

Why do people keep pretending that useful things have not been invented.


For example, I keep seeing waiting staff in restaurants struggling to carry more than a couple of plates and I want to shout 'There is such a thing as a tray" but some unwritten convention decrees the tray to an 'object non grata'.  Why?


I am sure you can think of other examples.


Learning from the failure of others can be hugely rewarding.  But so can learning from their successes, their innovations, their 'wins'.


If we are doomed to pretend that useful objects and devices do not exist, we are doomed to recreate the inefficiencies of the past ... and we have enough in the present to concentrate our efforts on!
