TAC, I know you have your reasons.

They're just all bad.


I mean, I don't get it, but I respect that you have your reasons.

I don't.



My biggest problem is with fuckers that do it without thinking.

I have a bigger problem with fuckers who do it deliberately just to make a flaccid point.

But, somehow it's all endearing when Tim does it.  :heart :-*  Love ya, buddy!

Most people don't know this but the Israeli-Palestinian conflict actually started back in 1946 when a pre-Israeli zionist left a shopping cart in the parking lot of a Palestinian store. True story.

I know that from your point of view, it's someone else's job.  But let me ask you this: if you are in a grocery store, and you pick up a gallon of milk, but then when you get to the bread aisle, you remember that your wife picked up a gallon of milk yesterday, so you don't need it.  Do you just set the milk down on the bread aisle, since it's not your job to make sure that groceries are stocked in the right place (or don't spoil)?  Or do you put it back where it goes, to make life easier on everyone?

It's not that it's someone else's job. That's not it at all.

It's that I take offence that companies started putting these up simply to save labor and insurance costs. That's fine that they do this, but I take it as an insult that I am expected to comply with what THEY want.

Apparently this, over time, has turned into a societal norm of courtesy to others, but as a crusty old dude, I ain't buying it.


Hef, using your milk example, I may or may not bring it all the way back to the milk section, depending on how much time I have, but I will at least drop it into the nearest refrigerated (Produce, Meat, etc..) case. I will not leave it on an unrefrigerated shelf.


It's called evolving Tim.  They passed out cigarettes with matches on the streets to 13 year old kids in the 50's.  Think that's a smart thing to do today?  :lol


But that's completely different. Pretty sure you can't get cancer from parking or not parking your carriage.

Ok. Cars are not made like the old days. A cart wouldn't make a smudge in the old days.  Now they dent the crap out of cars.  Let's be courteous to your customers and not dent the shit out of our cars.

No. They were V8's and I'd have sex in the backseat without my feet and head touching the doors.

No argument from me.  This was my first car.  I could rest my beer on the seat next to me and still have room. Zero to 60 in 3.5 minutes, and a stopping distance of about 2.6 miles.  But once it got going, it would cruise like a 747.

My first car was a '77 Buick Regal.  It had a 350 with a 4 barrel, and was apparently made of some kind of vibranium alloy, because nothing shy of a telephone pole at high speed could make a scratch in it.

I know that from your point of view, it's someone else's job.  But let me ask you this: if you are in a grocery store, and you pick up a gallon of milk, but then when you get to the bread aisle, you remember that your wife picked up a gallon of milk yesterday, so you don't need it.  Do you just set the milk down on the bread aisle, since it's not your job to make sure that groceries are stocked in the right place (or don't spoil)?  Or do you put it back where it goes, to make life easier on everyone?

So on this particular subject, you are just stuck in 1975 and refuse to budge?  That's just the way it is?

Just trying to be clear here.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Yup, Tim often brings up the establishment side of things, and I don't think that's important to me.  It's respecting everyone who shares the lot.  It's super annoying to have a cart in spaces or worse, on the loose so I do my part to make sure I am not the one who does things that I am annoyed by.

You should've gone back in and stocked the store's shelves for them too. Or maybe bake some muffins for the display case. Maybe step behind the fish counter and give the worker a coffee break..;D
