The photo showed a green Woolworths shopping basket containing chocolate milk, yoghurt, ice cream and cat food.

‘If you have a shopping trolley or cart in your house or yard, you just might be a bogan,’ one user commented.

‘Stealing shopping baskets because your too good for reusable bags, stay classy,’ wrote another.

Some Reddit users ignored the shopping basket altogether, and were more interested in discussing the man’s cat.
