Never heard of that either, I've seen the coin insert as a hold until you return the cart in Germany before, but I've never seen anything else restrictive here in the states or anything with an alarm for the carts.

We have carts where if you wheel them out of the parking lot, one of the wheels locks up.

We have those carts too, but it's usually as soon as you start pushing it through the store.  :lol

Went to Costco for lunch and noticed the corral.... now what?



This was blocking one way on the traffic and one car struggled pulling out cause of all the carts.  What's not seen in this picture is that to the right, the rest of the corral is empty, aka no one pushed the first carts in all the way so they couldn't fit and then it just got out of hand from there.  After lunch, there were two workers reorganizing it all.

More importantly, how was lunch, and what'd you go with?

If folks would leave their carts in appropriate places, this kind of thing wouldn't happen!   :biggrin:

Well they did have some people fixing it on our way out, but that was like 20 minutes later.  That parking lot is also really small for a costco so that overflow was blocking traffic and probably should have been dealt with quicker, although, the first people who started piling them in wrong to set this failure up are morons.

Not to be that guy, and I fully recognize that there's no easy answer to this, but we understand that this is because the first cart wasn't pushed in all the way.  Okay, mistakes happen, I get it.   But customer number two.  Can't push them a foot further?  Customer three? Four? Five?  How about the customer that put the cart in that you can see right below the stop sign.  You're really going to compound that mistake all the way halfway across the driving lane?   I know, I know "Not my job".  I kind of look at it like it's also "not my job to be a douche", and at some point in that picture, we can debate where, someone failed at their job.

Takes literally seconds to push the cart in. Every single person who added to that line without fixing it is part of the problem and I hope they get a nail in their tire.  :lol

We are all lazy AF.  I personally push them in.   Again, no matter how lazy the customer is, that pile is on the store management.

I always line my cart into another - no matter how bad the shit is ahead of me.  If it's just one more cart that needs to be fixed to line everything up, I'll do that.  But I ain't spending a few minutes to make it all Tetris-like.

As we've established in many other threads, people are the worst.

I think I see an empty parking space next to the empty corral?  Oh wait...there's a cart in the parking space.  Instant Darwin award.  :\

Just once I wish I could catch someone doing that.  :loser:

I have one person. They can either;
A. Get the carriages, or
B. Ring your order in the first place.

That's bullshit.   Cashier can ring out and bag.  Bagger can shag carriages.   I worked for a grocery store and was a front end man.  We set a schedule for baggers to go out in the yard.

I've said this before so I apologize for repeating myself but I have not shopped at a grocery store (not counting Costco, which I don't consider a grocery store anyway) that had a dedicated 'bagger' position. Do stores still exist that employ people specifically to bag groceries?

True, been a loooong time since I've seen dedicated baggers, in fact the dedicated register workers are fading away too for self check out.  The walmart over here has more self check out than human check outs now.

I understand budget but a manager has people to do that.  Make a supervisor bag and send out the bagger.

It is a lot easier when the school kids come to work or the weekends but managers can and should do a better job with a simple task.

Well, in California, back in 2016, a proposition was passed where grocery stores cannot use plastic bags anymore.  Either grocery stores will provide reusable bags for ten cents a bag or people have to bring their own bags to carry groceries.  There's pros and cons regarding that ruling.  So at this point, I imagine that stores in California does not have any people employed to bag groceries and if people do want those 10 cent bags, I imagine the cashier will bag them.  I don't know.
