Have you ever come back from grocery shopping and had your car banged and dented by a runaway grocery cart that someone was too lazy to put in the cart keeper?
I know I have mentioned this before, but it is probably my biggest pet peeve and I get so angry...put your grocery cart where it belongs when you're finished with it...not between your car and mine. Don't you think it's easier to walk your cart to the cart return 10 steps away than squeeze into your car?
Here's my solution. Make a practice of taking a shopping cart into the store with you. Yes, that means walking to a cart and steering it into the store. You know you're going to need one anyway. Infact, if the stores would even give 25 cents per cart brought into their store, I am sure they would get paid back much more than that in public perception. Until the stores catch on, take a cart in with you.... just because you're a good person.
