Now see, that's the perfect excuse to get jacked like The Rock. Hang around the lots and yell at the jackwagons who don't put 'em back. Who's gonna intimidate who at that point?  :lol

I think I'd probably call the cops on him and report to the store manager that there was some clown outside harassing and threatening the store's customers, and that I wouldn't shop there again until they did something about it.

Id imagine that's exactly what happened, then the guy could move onto the next town and start over.

LOL, I think "threatening" is a far cry from reminding people that the corrals are there for a reason.  If I was the store manager, I'd be out there harassing them myself.  :lol

I doubt it.  He didn't do anything remotely serious enough to call the police.  If I was the manager and someone came in to complain about some guy like that in the parking lot, I'd tell them to put their cart in the goddamn corral. :lol

Well the lady threatened exactly that.  At the end of the day, I don't think there's any legal issue, it's just not really threatening but I can see why store managers wouldn't want this and why the cops would also tell the guy to beat it.

And that's all well and good, but most store managers would not do that, for several reasons.  And as has already been mentioned in the thread (and keeps getting ignored), most store managers don't care whether or not customers put carts in the corral and don't see it as an issue.  Most of them do see it as a problem if their customers (rightly or wrongly) feel threatened by rude people and talk about taking their business elsewhere.

And the bottom line is, there's just no good reason to be rude to people.

Well, no.  Just because you may, for some reason, subjectively feel that carts should be put in a corral, you don't get to make up rules for others about social norms. 

But more importantly, even if it somehow affected anyone else in a way that somehow could be considered rude, that doesn't excuse someone else subsequently being rude by harassing strangers in a parking lot.  Two wrongs (assuming we stretch and agree to pretend the first action is somehow a "wrong") don't make a right.

But even more importantly, you could just put it in a place where it won't even potentially damage any cars or inconvenience anyone else, and you get the added benefit of not having to look over your shoulder, and you burn a couple calories for taking twenty more steps. :neverusethis:

Maybe we should make prostitution legal. Free BJ with every cart returned!

I don't think any of us "anti-corral" folks have ever disagreed with this.  What we do disagree with is that corrals are the only places that meet this criteria.

I would hardly classify myself as "anti-corral," but, yes, you summed it up perfectly.  (except for TAC, who I believe actually is staunchly "anti-corral," if I'm not mistaken)

Which, no offense, makes literally ZERO sense to me.  There is no issue of "returning" anything.  Nobody in this thread, including yourself, puts the cart back inside the store where you got it from in the first place, so it isn't an issue of "returning" it at all.  So that's either careless wording or not being entirely honest in framing the issue.  But either way, it makes no sense.

Bruh why are you trying to continue an argument that you'll inevitably get pissy about and then blame me for like always. You can have the last word but I'm not talking with you about this anymore 'cause you always get mad and take it personal while the rest of us are cracking jokes having fun :lol chill

I'm "chilled," don't worry.  I'll only get "pissy" if it devolves into namecalling.  I'd like to think that you are I are past that, so it's not an issue.  Just calling out what I see as a fallacy in the discourse, which is always fair game.

As for having to have the last word, I'll just say this:  As a species, humans in 2019 as a whole are too stupid to not frequently fall into the trap of feeling like we have to have the last word on every silly little Internet debate that we get sucked into, myself included.  So, yeah, guilty as charged.  :lol  But I'll try to be aware of that.

But in so saying, I got the last word in so far.  Haha!

I literally did this last week in...California! The cart corral was farther from the rental car than to the store front.

Actually, if I am near a corral and see a cart, and I need one, I take it from there. So in that case, you are "returning" the cart to the corral.  :biggrin:

Agreed, and that starts with returning the cart  :biggrin:

I agree on the second part.  As much as I find what that guy did entertaining and support it, it's certainly not "right" nor does it make the situation better in any way. 

As for the first, well thats the crux of this whole thread so no point in going through it all again.

But what if the store put up a sign saying to return the carts?  Does that take away from the rules for social norms since it would then be a written rule of the lot?

But even more importantly, you could just put it in a place where it won't even potentially damage any cars or inconvenience anyone else

I don't think any of us "anti-corral" folks have ever disagreed with this.  What we do disagree with is that corrals are the only places that meet this criteria.

I would hardly classify myself as "anti-corral," but, yes, you summed it up perfectly.  (except for TAC, who I believe actually is staunchly "anti-corral," if I'm not mistaken)

I couldn't think of a better term, so I went with it even though it's not entirely accurate.

Re: Do you put the shopping carts back in the corral?

Man, I missed an entertaining page.  Bosky, I'm not sure what evidence you've gathered that validates store owners are not bothered by carst strewn about the parking lot.  In fact, I know in windy weather they most certainly are - Costco up here puts signs up asking for people to return carts to a coral or the front of the store.  As for some of your other posts, I just can't fathom quoting and re-hashing them.  Plus, you're a poopy-head.

Actually, if I am near a corral and see a cart, and I need one, I take it from there. So in that case, you are "returning" the cart to the corral.  :biggrin:

^ This - virtually everytime.  I specifically park near corrals whenever I can so that I don't have a long trip to return it, and so that I can grab one from there before entering the store (most of the time).  I can't tell you how many times I've gotten to the entrance at Costco on a weekend, and there are NO carts at the front - they're all out in the corrals (except for the few from the fine people that just left them strewn about the parking lot - but that rarely happens in civilized nations like Canada   ;D
If I can do it, it's idiot proof.

I'll pull a cart from the corral on my way in too if it's on my way. Can't recall an instance of not having carts up front though to make it a habbit.
