pickups are it

Full size and heavy duty pickups are increasing popular and "cool."
I am perplexed by this, since I see families loading groceries into the rear seats of large pickups in supermarket parking lots. It is my impression that the bed of a full size pickup is unusable. First, it is too big to put anything in it because the stuff will end up so far away that it is unreachable and one would need to climb onto the bed to reach the shopping bags, etc. Climbing up into the bed seems like an almost impossible feat of acrobatics, since the bed is simply way too high for a normal height human to step onto. I can see how old style low to the ground pickups may be useful to have for house projects, etc. But it seems that the full size pickup is completely unusuable because it is too high to first lift heavy items into the bed and to later get these items out of the bed. So I don't understand why people buy them, other than because they want to be protected in a crash and to be able to intimidate drivers of smaller vehicles.
