garbage tote cannot be used in bees hate you path, which causes problems for the maximizer, as it tries to acquire garbage items from it, but fails
so for example using maximize item
the error message (which also causes maximizer to abort the moment it tries to fold a tote item) is because it is trying to acquire a broken champagne bottle from the garbage tote.

You are too scared of Bs.
Unable to meet all requirements via equipment changes.
See the Modifier Maximizer for further suggestions.
with maximize meat its worse, it tries to acquire the wad of used tape for the head slot (first slot), so it aborts before any other item can be equipped.
Note that you can actually equip items with a b in them, they just deal damage to you in combat. It is the garbage tote itself that is not usable (the means through which you get the various garbage equips).
This is also a problem for turn burning scripts who try to use maximizer.
