Cart parking

West Deptford, NJ

Technically this isn’t bad parking, but because it is a personal pet peeve of mine and it takes place in a parking lot, I’m including it. Anthony sarcastically says, “Not enough time to walk those shopping carts to the bin, so just leave them in a parking space, inconveniencing shoppers on a busy, rainy Sunday afternoon. I should have dusted them for fingerprints.”

Put your shopping carts away people.

    Oh that burns my butt when I see people leave their shopping cart behind. I have actually seen people use some one elses car to keep it from rolling away. WTF???!!! Are you THAT lazy?!?!

    I just discovered this blog so I’m waaaay behind; but I totally have to rant here. This is also one of my pet peeves. I have sat in my car and seen errant shopping carts being blown across parking lots into parked cars. A loose cart almost got my car the other day as I was pulling out of my parking space; but some guy just happened to be walking by and grabbed it. I have seen so many obviously perfectly healthy people just leave their carts anywhere. I don’t care if you’re in a hurry. If you’re so robust that you can RUN, then run your cart on over to the cart corral! If you’re in a hurry because you have to go to the bathroom; you should have gone inside the store before you left. I’m sure one of the employees would have watched your groceries. If you are handicapped, then have one of the employees help you. Lots of times they’ll ask if you want someone to take your graceries to your car for you. Answer YES! Then the employee will also take care of the cart.

    I absolutely HATE this: you’re looking for a parking spot in a crowded lot. You find a spot that appears empty, and start to pull in…but discover that there’s a shopping cart (or 2 or 3) in this otherwise perfectly good parking spot.

    One blustery winter evening when I had finished my shopping; I slogged through the foot-deep slush to my car to put the groceries in my trunk. Then I braved the sleet and biting winds to push my cart through the slush to the cart corral. Oh – yeah…I had recently had surgery and was ON CRUTCHES!!! I noticed that other shoppers were looking at me (probably with pity.) So, on my long journey to the cart corral and back to my car, I very pointedly looked at every single person emptying a shopping cart. Then I sat in my a car for a couple of minutes and watched as every single person put their cart away properly.

    Shame is a powerful motivator.

    Snap a photo of the lazy bastards and post it on the net with a discription of them and their vehicle. Best to get them and their license plate in the photo.
