Put Shopping Carts in Their Place!By
Picture yourself driving through the parking lot at your local grocery, you see an open spot but just as you get ready to pull in, you see a cart in the spot. This has to be one of the most exasperating things on earth. It always annoys me to no end when people don’t put their shopping carts back in the little cart corral. It is one of my pet peeves. Come on people, how hard can it be? Is it any wonder a large percentage of Americans are obese when we can’t walk 20 feet to put a shopping cart away? Not to mention that the shopping carts are free to run into random cars and dent them.
Some grocery stores such as Aldi have a system that requires a quarter to get a cart out and the quarter is returned when the cart is put back. It is a very simple yet effective system. I am really surprised that more grocery stores don’t do this. Next time you are out shopping, put your shopping cart in its place!
