Every Sunday I go grocery shop. Every single time I go grocery shopping I am reminded how much I hate seeing people leave their grocery carts wherever they please. Not only am I seeing grocery carts that could have scrapped my new 4 Runner, but I am seeing gloves and masks thrown away, inside the carts.

Every time I see someone putting their groceries away I ask if they wouldn’t mind me taking their cart since they are done with theirs. Imagine how much better it would be if we all put our shopping carts right where they needed to be. When did it become a thing to leave our carts wherever we pleased?

Have you ever had your car scraped or hit by a shopping cart? It’s one of the most infuriating things ever. What if we all made the pact to put our shopping carts in the cart holder areas? I don’t even know what those are called, cart corals perhaps?

Imagine driving up to a grocery store parking lot and not having to drive up onto a bunch of carts blocking a space. It sounds marvelous, doesn’t it? Please. Let’s be that guy that puts the cart back where they belong.

Let's be kind to each other and the employees of your favorite store. Also, throw your masks and gloves away in the trash where they belong and not in the cart you left on a parking spot. Together, we can eliminate this problem that has become one of my biggest pet peeves.
