Or don't be a bag of dicks and block the sidewalk with them. There is plenty of space in the dirt for them.

I'm semi serious.

: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.

In Phoenix, people purposely put carts behind peoples' cars, even if the return was two spots away. It happened so often when I lived there that it couldn't have been anything other than purposeful.

Whereabouts do you live? I lived smack dab in Maryvale. Plenty of laziness to be had in Maricopa, but no shopping carts behind cars anymore. I lived in Phoenix for 8 years, and this was a constant thing.

I think we can all agree that it's a shitty thing leave your cart floating in the lot without flushing putting it back

The following things are philosophically akin to just leaving your empty cart loose in a parking lot and driving away:

-taking a huge dump in your friend's toilet and not flushing
-letting your dog crap in the park and not picking it up
-crapping in your pants and just shoving those pants down deep into the hamper, hoping that your wife doesn't notice when she does the laundry...

Actually, no, I don't see what those things have in common with each other.

You're a serious man, Bosk1.  I can respect that.  Running this forum is serious business.

He he, fresh blood.  Yeah, I'm the new guy.  And no, I didn't read the whole cart saga because I assumed it comes down to common sense: put the fucking cart in the corral, unless you're some kind of thoughtless twit.  Amiright? 

Hey should one stop posting in the evenings after they've had a few adult beverages?  Etiquette question, I guess.  Asking for a friend.

FWIW, San Jose is not Northern California. 

???  Since when?  Serious question.  As someone who has grown up in CA, I've never heard anyone in either N.Cal. or So.Cal. NOT refer to the Bay Area as Northern California, so I'm legitimately confused by your statement.

Notwithstanding the common usage, it's simple geography.  The northern border of California is (approximately) the 42nd parallel, and the southern border is (approximately) the 32nd parallel, so the mid-point is the 37th parallel.  In the SF Bay Area, the 37th parallel runs just south of SFO and fairly well north of San Jose.  While Californians have a tendency to disregard anything north of Tahoe, saying that San Jose is in northern California is as accurate as saying that Berkeley is in southern California.  Since the SF Bay Area straddles the north-south line of the state, I almost always refer to it as central California.

Okay, but we're not talking about a formal geographic designation, but rather an agreed regional descriptor that is used by virtually everybody in the country to describe that region.  It gets a little more subjective when you are talking about the central valley or the coast when you drop down into areas like Monterey and San Luis Obisbo.  But nobody refers to any part of the San Francisco Bay Area as anything but "Northern California" unless there is a specific, esoteric purpose for a different designation.  I know Wikipedia isn't authoritative, but it is laid out pretty clearly:

Quote
Northern California (colloquially known as NorCal) is the northern portion of the U.S. state of California. Spanning the state's northernmost 48 counties[1][2] its main population centers include the San Francisco Bay Area (anchored by the cities of San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland), the Greater Sacramento area (anchored by the state capital Sacramento), and the Metropolitan Fresno area (anchored by the city of Fresno). Northern California also contains redwood forests, along with the Sierra Nevada, including Yosemite Valley and part of Lake Tahoe, Mount Shasta (the second-highest peak in the Cascade Range after Mount Rainier in Washington), and most of the Central Valley, one of the world's most productive agricultural regions.

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....

That sucks.  Next time she should grab it right back.  :P

Interstate 60 goes to Globe. I've never actually been there. The farthest I've been is Tucson and Cottonwood.
