You also have zero obligation to surrender your seat in a bus to a pregnant woman or an elderly person.

Not sure if regional or national but on the transit system I used to ride you are required to give up your seat for the elderly/handicapped. Not sure if you have to for pregnant women.

This isn't about safety, profit margin, liability, or labor.  It is simply about personal responsibility and laziness.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Those who take the extra 30 seconds to secure a cart in the corral are ensuring the cart will not do any damage to any vehicle.  Those who don't are willing to take the chance, no matter how small, that the cart might do some damage or cause an inconvenience to another shopper....all in the name of 30 seconds.  Regardless of any rationalization, you simply can't know that leaving a cart outside the corral won't have detrimental result. 
It isn't a huge deal in the grand scheme of things....but it is laziness....just own it.
JMHO.

Just looked up the definition of "lazy" just to make sure it didn't change when I wasn't looking.  That pretty much confirmed that laziness has NOTHING to do with what PG and others have posted.  Properly leaving a cart somewhere other than a corral has nothing to do with laziness.  What a pointlessly judgmental thing to say.

To all of you saying that you leave your carts in the parking lot in a place that won't be in the way or cause damage to other peoples property, you know the store has conveniently already made a place for that (most stores have multiple places, usually within a 10 second walk of any parking space on the lot), called a cart corral.

Or if you have to leave it somewhere else, at least put it in the bike lanes along the street, since the bicyclists don't use them... :biggrin:

I mean it really doesn't matter if you 'properly' leave it somewhere else anyway because there's already a designated place for it. One that's made of steel, and built for the sole purpose of keeping them all together. Ain't that unreasonable to call it laziness tbh. EDIT: But if you do leave it out... if your car one day gets damaged, you'll find no sympathy here! :lol

EDIT 2: What Pup said.  :lol

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/lazy

lazy adjective       la·​zy | \ ˈlā-zē  \       lazier; laziest
Definition of lazy (Entry 1 of 2)
1a : disinclined to activity or exertion : not energetic or vigorous
The lazy child moderator tried to avoid household chores putting the cart back to the corral.

Nope, the definition hasn't change, and it fits.  Even the example of it in a sentence was spot on!  ;)

Precisely. I mean, you can leave it anywhere, but then you are out of a euro/dollar/quid/whatever. Most people will spend 30-60 seconds to save a euro.

Yep, I think these are a good invention. I've rarely seen rogue carts at market parking lots.

I remember somebody mentioning that unless you don't have any spare change, then you're outta luck and cart. That is certainly true, but you can also buy metallic/plastic tokens for about 50 cents that fit into the coin slot.

My GF and I shop at Aldi all the time. We have a designated cart quarter in her car in a special place so we don't spend it. She was loading her groceries into her car, and a woman parked next to her, and grabbed her cart as she putting the last of the items in the trunk, and ran into the store with it, thus stealing her quarter.

This isn't the first time this has happened. Aldi is the only store in our area that does this, and people are assholes....
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

:lol  Exactly.  Aside from the above pic being fake, there's no reason to put carts blocking a walkway, even if you don't put them in the corrals.

There's no reason, but I know people can be stupid/inconsiderate/asshole enough for it to be plausible.
