    It Takes Only One Additional Moment

    People are in such a rush these days that they ignore basic courtesies, like this one.  However, if they have a car that gets damaged by a stray cart, they are the first to get a lawyer to clog up the courts with meaningless crap. The stores are so appreciative when you...

    The ONLY time I excuse this is when it's a handicapped/elderly person who has trouble walking, or a harried mother who has multiple small children who can't be left in the van alone while she returns the cart to the cart return. Those are the ONLY times. Everyone else who...

    Windy Lots

    I hate the fools who leave their carts out in the lot. I drive a small car and have nearly been wiped out by runaway carts pushed by 40 or 50 mph wins. Especially I wonder about the fools who show normal size cartss into the big cart ranks at DIY stores. Do these idiots have...

    Shopping Cart

    I don't hate the one's who don't do it, I think it is laziness though. The way I see it, the stores gives us service and prepares it for us nicely and the least we can do is put it back where it belongs, it just takes a few seconds doing it.

    Lazy People

    I think my car was hit recently from a cart and scratched up the whole bottom of the door, kinda makes me mad, but a car is eventually gonna get all beat up at some point, it three years old now so I guess it's not as bad as if it were new. I use to work at a grocery store doing...

    In The Handicapped Spaces!!!!

    I've actually seen people push their carts into the handicapped spaces rather than walk them the 15 feet to the return.  Into the HANDICAPPED SPACES??? Fucken morons.

    Shopping Cart Gone Wild

    I pulled into a mostly empty mall parking lot.  It was raining cats and dogs so I decided to sit in the car until it passed.  Beside me was a lone shopping card someone had left.  The wind started moving it.  At first it just seemed to piviot in on one...

    Great Idea

    The best solution to the problem with shopping carts not being put where they should be is, Where you have to put a quarter in a slot to get a cart. Those stores that have that system, you can look at the parking lot and they are not all over the place. People bring them back to...

    Think of It This Way...

    would YOU want to run your a$$ around and have to bring them in??  i don't think so...NO ONE else does either!  I used to work in a grocery store and would occasionally have to go bring carts in myself...omg it was such a pain to walk around the whole damn parking lot...
