I REALLY hate the people that refuse to put the shopping carts back in the shopping cart return or can’t take a minute to push it back up to the front of the store.
Twice this week my car has been dinged by freakin shopping carts. I always try to park far enough away from the store entrance to avoid this problem but this week, the carts were just sniffing me out, left by the lazy-ass people that can’t return them.
One of the grocery stores that I used to shop at in New Jersey had a great idea. In order to get a shopping cart released, you had to put in a quarter in a little box on the cart and it would detach from the line of carts. After you were done putting your groceries in the car, you simply pushed the cart back, attached it to the other carts and you got your quarter back.
Now I have to admit, not everyone returned the cart to get their quarter back but I bet if you charged a dollar, more people would do it.
Come on people, use some common courtesy and return your damn carts to the proper area.
