I have to keep talking about this right now, because apparently shopping cart issues is something we take very seriously in the East Valley.
When taking over EVMB instagram, I shared my strong opinions about rogue shopping carts in parking lots, over instastories. I have felt very passionate about this subject for many years. It’s basically a pet peeve of mine. It shouldn’t bother me to see a rogue cart, but it does. Like ridiculously bothers me.
So why do rogue shopping carts bother me so much?
I have been betrayed so many times, thinking that I’m going to get a great parking spot, and BAM, shopping cart! Shopping carts have a designated place for a reason, that reason is to keep parking spots open for cars. I know some may be confused by how close those two words are, cars…carts…see only one letter different, but a BIG difference. Carts are made to fit perfectly together in their special made cart home, a little oasis designated just for them. It’s the most exclusive club and your job is to lift the velvet rope and let them in. Easy right?
Well, it must be hard by the amount carts I’ve seen pilling up right NEXT to cart areas.
Maybe i’m just a practical person, but I can’t understand why someone, after already making the effort to walk the cart to the cart area, wouldn’t put the cart all the way in. What’s another 2 seconds, or 2 feet gonna do to your life? Think of the workers, think of people trying to park, think of anyone else besides yourself in that very moment when you’re making the decision to put the cart back.
I understand there are some extenuating circumstances where shopping are difficult to put back…I get that. I do.
It seems the majority feel the same and always put their carts back, so why do we have so many strays!? I could talk talk about this for days.
Can we all just please put shopping carts where they belong? Lets make the world a better place, one happy shopping cart at a time.
Do I get an AMEN or no you CRAY!
