I love you, but you are literally the only person I have ever heard with this point of view.

Tim has a lot of unique views that are surprising. Don't get him started on car washes and leaf blowers.  :lol

Too late. I have to know this now that you've brought it up, and we'll need threads depending on how outlandish the views are.  :lol

Car washes are stupid and a waste of money because, well, rain!

Cleaning up the fallen leaves from your yard is a waste of time and money because, well, wind!

 :lol :lol
Wouldn't surprise me in the least.  lol
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I once knew a woman with a white car who hadn't washed it the entire time she owned it. 7 years. In Colorado. She was genuinely offended when I suggested she finally wash it, because "it's just going to get dirty again."

Yea I might do that :lol

My opinion is that you put the carts in the corral, that's it. It's a pain in the ass to have them scattered and possibly taking up parking spaces. Now to see how this became an issue over the past 23 pages

:lol  Exactly.  Hef, you might want to talk to the majority of Northern Californians.  I can't speak to other areas, but here, MOST people are of the opinion that "it's a good idea, and I usually do it, but it's certainly not REQUIRED."  I guess, at the end of the day, it's nice that nowadays, most stores have multiple corrals so that it's usually (but not always) easier to put them in the corrals than not so that the few cart crusaders out there can keep their blood pressure under control.

To be fair, the attitude you are describing is not remotely the same as TAC "refusing to be their bitch".

Interesting how your selective reasoning must be convenient.  I already explained why the corrals are there.  Of course it's their job, but management doesn't want their employees spending all their time in the parking lot.  Time is money.  I also said it's a safety liability as well.  How is that even remotely comparable to reviewing contracts?  Apples and oranges dude.

Err....  I get that having customers do some or all of the work of getting carts back to store is good for the stores, but that's neither here nor there as far as I'm concerned.  As far as it being "a safety liability," I suppose, but I'm fairly confident that the incidence of injury suffered by retail employees while retrieving carts is so low as not to be worth considering.

Looks like you're still seeing orange apples.  I suppose you can continue to argue whatever point you're trying to make, but the simplest concept still remains.  If someone lets you use their shopping cart, the least you can do is stick in their corral.  :p

No, the least I can do is leave it in their parking lot in a location that will neither pose a reasonable risk of damage to others' cars or inhibit others from parking, which is exactly what I do.

That sound like too much effort to walk that far to leave a cart somewhere it won't damage a car.  Might as well bring it to the corral.

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.

LOL Thank you :)
But in full disclosure, I do not put the cart back in the corral more than half the time.  I am lazy, I admit it.
Its funny reading the gymnastics some go through to justify simple laziness.  Kind of pathetic actually.
But one hell of a read though....Thread of the year for sure.

So I went to grocery outlet Wednesday. Did my shopping, loaded up my car, and decided to not put my cart back into a corral. I felt so edgy. I want to feel it again. I'm going to go walk on grass with a "Stay Off Grass" sign, jay walk, and let my dog pee in a spot with one of these on it:
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

If you don't think those corrals are there because of everything you list in the first sentence of your post, I don't know what to tell you..

Well I did actually put "JMHO" in my actual post, so yes, it is my opinion.
And you may be right that the corrals might be there because of some of those reasons (and others).....but my point was about why you dont USE them, not why they were built.....so I don't know what to tell you I guess.....

I disagree that it is laziness to do something I have zero obligation to do just because it will require minimal time and effort to do it.

I disagree that it is laziness to do something I have zero obligation to do just because it will require minimal time and effort to do it.

Speaking as a non-US person so I don't know if that applies to your country, guys, but still.

Well, technically, you also have zero obligation to hold the door for the folks behind you. The subway (or whatever place you're in) should hire a person to hold the doors for them. You don't have to do it, it's not on you to hold the fucking doors. You also have zero obligation to surrender your seat in a bus to a pregnant woman or an elderly person. The bus company should add more seats or hire an enforcer to make you leave that seat so they could sit, or to keep those seats unoccupied until such a person boards the bus. Why would you surrender your own seat? That's bullshit, it's not on you, they should plan that shit accordingly to the amount of people on that route (side note: they actually should).

Hilariously, in Russia, you also have zero obligation to clean after your dog when you're walking him/her in your neighbourhood, because hey, you've got cleaning folks for that. They're responsible for cleaning the nearby territory. It's their job. So there's basically shit everywhere, and while that might sound as a metaphor, and it actually works as a fucking metaphor too, it actually isn't that. There's literally fucking shit everywhere, come spring. Fuck me.

I just don't know. This thread pisses me off so much. And Tim, I still love you, no matter what you stance on the shopping carts is.

Edit: it's also a good way to tell I've been drinking—if you see me posting in this thread, I've been drinking.
