I had it with the post card on my first playthrough and it has stopped me from getting the remorse achievement.
Saved game holding post card with Time Traveller in time traveller stage and when I came back to the game and reloaded, it was on the floor and I was unable to pick it up with any of my characters.

Thanks to KillerBEA for this awesome signature

I couldn't pick up the hot dog for the crystal cave monster. After saving and reloading a few times, I finally picked it up by pressing the B button. I'd been using X to pick things up for the entire game, but I now realize X is meant to be "use" while B is "pick up/drop".

On further thought I realize X wasn't working because the hot dog was in front of the machine, so it was just trying to use the machine again. I'm guessing it's not the same problem as others are having.

I've never had the problem of not being able to pick up an item such as the barbell, but I've had multiple times where I tried to pick up hot dogs near machines, or items near cave paintings, and had to switch characters while tapping X to pick it up instead of hitting the machine/painting. I guess I should have looked at the controls to remember B could pick things up too, before I 100%ed the game and cursed the makers for not letting me pick up hot dogs in front of machines without so much effort! (facepalm)
