Not a Rant...well if you want to rant. :chuckle:
 
Just wrapped up a Costco trip. No...this isnít about Rolexes in the jewelry case...
.

While returning my buggy to the corral in the parking lot I noticed this...

Why canít Walmart shoppers park buggies as neat and straight? :chuckle:

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...a72d0c017d.jpg

It canít be the thriftiness that both sets of shoppers share...opine if you care...

Better than the animals who leave their carts in parking spaces.

"Buggy?"

Hate to break it to you but that's a shopping cart.

And you might as well ask why can't Wallmart shoppers brush their teeth.

:rofl:

To answer the OP, some people are just lazy.

I think further investigation is warranted. Perhaps an independent council.

No need for negative or mean comments on the perceived shoppers at either place, but...

Its simply the weather at the time, design of the corrals and condition of the carts.

And personally, I'm not doing a perfect job someone could and should be hired to do if I'm doing it wrong, and if Wally and Costy had an issue, they'd do an Aldi and make people add a quarter in there and they'll be returned uniformly.

I think your ocd is showing! Not something I’d have even noticed, much less taken a photo of!!

pickettt 24 August 2019 03:50 AM

My 6 year-old son has asked me why I return my cart to the corral or store when everyone else leaves them in the parking lot. I tell him thereís nothing we can do about other people, we can only do the proper thing ourselves. Hopefully it wears off on him.

Why are they animals? Seems a rather harsh label for people who choose not to do the buggy attendantís nob.

I refuse to park anywhere near loose carts. runaway carts have radar for my car.

people are lazy generally if they are not being watched. If i owned a store i would have a big sign out front with CCTV mugs of people refusing to follow basic courtesy. I would just shame them

Because it takes all of 30 seconds to walk a cart back to one of those cages. No one is expecting people to walk them back to the store entrance.

The employees who bring the carts back to store entrances still have to gather them all from the parking lots. I don't consider it some great injustice if I take a cart to where they belong.

We've all seen parking spots that are taken up by carts . I've seen carts randomly rolling in parking lots that end up dinging cars. Frankly I would feel terrible if I left a cart out in the open somewhere and it rolled away and hit someone's car.

Great answers...

Well, we are ALL Animals - mammals, that is. But some mammals can park a buggy/cart straight and other mammals canít and some may just be lazy.

I will throw this out there - a mom/dad alone with toddler(s) canít easily handle it.

I wonder if the stats change when itís raining... :chuckle:

My wife loved Publix stores because of 2 things: BOGO & the bagger pushes your cart to your car and returned it to the store. :thumbsup:

I have seen the motorized ones parked way in the back - maybe they were racing and the battery died?

I think someone loves their job, and whoever did that, is going places.

I always thought I was keeping someone employed by leaving it about.... but hey. If itís need maybe itís just less overtime

incontrol 24 August 2019 05:57 AM

My Costco does not even have the cages for carts. An employee has a cart machine and he gathers them up with it and brings them back to the store.

I wish I could do anything other than laugh at that.

The rationalization being that leaving a cart out in a parking lot is keeping someone employed. Right.

I can see it now.

Put stuff in car.
Look at cage 20 feet away.
NO! I'm going to leave it right here.
Doesn't matter that if I might end up blocking a spot.

Nope.
Someone has a job because of me :chuckle:

Never thought about that.

If we all left them randomly scattered in the farthest reaches of the parking lots it would be healthier [mean more exercise for us (walking the extra 1/4 mile)] and more jobs/OT at the stores.

Brilliant!

Yet another affirmation that I have found my tribe among these forums. Watch people also tend to be good people.

You are keeping someone employed. The local body shop.

I leave that to my butler. :chuckle::chuckle:

Clearly, the reason you can't find good parking is that the store you go to has a buggy cage every 40 feet. There simply is no room for cars with all these buggy cages clogging up the lot. I see why you are so bitter. The high buggy cage density is simply ruining your life.

Now, if you go to the store I go to there is one cage per acre. But there are a couple guys who do nothing but shag buggies and take them inside. They seem happy in their work. They usually come to my car to grab the buggy. But if they don't, I leave it in the space next to my car. Sorry that poor buggy service in your store has ruined your life, but I'm not walking half way across the lot to cage the buggy.:cheers:

What do they do in the winter in Sweden?

Keep the poor buggies warm inside the store and use reindeers to save the butlers?
