Is it a conspiracy, do you think, or are they all like that?

You mean there are carts without thumping, squeaking wheels!?!?!?

Best Answer

The only reason I suspect that there are ones with decent wheels is because I seem to be the only one thumping and banging, shattering glassware with the squeal, and suffering internal injuries from the impact of each turn of the square wheel, while others glide along quietly in shopping oblivion. <br />I'm starting to suspect that there are parallel universes for people like us. O-O

I pay attention to the first ten feet and return any that are seriously defective.

Best Answer

Not always but more often than I like. I have also gotten carts with minds of their own. They will decide to turn on their own and that is no fun at all either.

As an official supermarket employee, I can’t divulge exactly how many of our carts have “the wheel from hell” on them (that’s privileged information). However… (whispering) I can tell you that we use that “unique” sound to track your movements throughout the store. If the sound stops for too long, we focus the security camera on you your last location to see if you’ve abandoned the cart for a quieter one or have given up and are “sampling” the Tylenol.

Best Answer

It's karma, in my case. It never fails. I always get the worst cart. To top it off, I got into an argument with one of the clerks at the market where I shop and, one day when my car broke down in the lot, she not only refused to phone AAA for me (I'd left my phone at home) but gave me a shopping cart to use to take my groceries home in (I live a block away) without informing me that this kind of shopping cart stops dead and won't move one inch once it reaches the edge of the parking lot. Then she and her other clerk friends stood around laughing at me as I dodgedars, pushed and pulled, cursed and went through a lot of trouble extricating my groceries from the cart and carrying them, a few at a time, to the edge of the curb.<br />
<br />
Now, I don't shop there anymore. And I never use shopping carts at all--I figured out that if I put it in a shopping cart, it's probably more than I can afford nowadays anyway.

Yo, I swore it was just me or the one wheel that won't turn so your fish tailing in and out of aisle.
