That's because I don't want my cart to ding someone's car like it's happened to me 5 times in my life.

In the continuing explanation of "it depends," here is another situation I encountered today:  Wife wanted me to meet her at a discount place where she had bought a number of items.  I came and loaded them into the car, and was then left with what to do with the empty cart.  This store does not have clerks to retrieve them.  It has no corrals.  It also had a sloped parking lot with no "safe" place to leave carts where they would not roll.  So I took it back inside the store.  The lack of staff to retrieve them and lack of corral outside would have led me to do that anyway.  But the lack of ANYWHERE "safe" to leave them outside the store doubly made that the best choice.  Again, it depends.  This situation is a far cry from the typical Costco run.

I'm calling BS on this one only because where you live is too flat to have any slopes...at all...anywhere...

:lol  You must have forgotten where I live then.

You should've put it back there regardless of whether or not they had staff to do it, because you're already there and closer to the corral than the employee and by god that cart could have gone rogue between the time you left it there and whenever the employees get to it.

*goes back to stewing miserably in the corner*  :lol :2metal:

Hi Tim.  Look at how far away the corral is.  Any kids outside to take my carriage? Nope.



So I walked my cart over and put it in the corral because of management's incompetence to staff correctly.  So I wanted to do the right thing.



IT'S YOUR FAULT TIM THAT CUSTOMERS HAVE TO DO THIS!! :lol :lol :lol

it's like the flight attendant always says: "And keep in mind, your nearest exit corral may be behind you."

Haha.
