Shopping cart near rival......

Parked in back of plaza where I have my lunch, saw this shopping cart as I was coming back from lunch. I took a picture, then I moved it, outta his way. I know it's a Ford, but it was a new GT. I knew if I saw one near my car I would flip out. Do unto others.....right?

I move carts all the time. Lazy bastards annoy me.

It doesn't have to be by a nice car either, it's more courtesy to the employees. If you've never shagged carts, you wouldn't understand.

Dont be lazy, return your cart to the corral.

Hats off to a kind deed!!!

I've even returned carts people were done with to the corral ,just to avoid it hitting another car.

I hope (though don't expect) the good kharma to be returned!

I know i would appreciate it

Good Job

Dont be lazy, return your cart to the corral.
Some places out here in Seattle don't have a corral, and in fact don't even have a place in front of the store to put them. When that's the case, I try to put them where no car is...and sometimes put them in a way where they can't roll randomly (wheels up in dirt/curb to hold it there). When there's a corral, however, I use it.

I was in a lot waiting for a friend in Eagle PA when I notice this shopping cart rolling behind my rental car down the sloped parking lot WAY away from the building...then I looked at where it was headed and cringed. There, by itself, dealer tags affixed to the bumpers was a brand new Lexus SUV. In the last row at the bottom of the lot, far away from anyone...and the cart, with the wind behind it..struck the door so hard that the handle actually hit the top of the door frame! Massive damage...I could not locate the source of the cart...shame.

Good move OP...that helps with your Karma.

based on how the Mustang is parked, it looks like the cart may have been there first.

Well done to you sir, well done.

This is why I try to park away from other cars and at the peak of an uphill slope.

I agree. I do the same. Also when going into a store, I will try to get a "cart in wild" and take that one in to use. Have to help out where/when you can, PLUS, you never know, that wild cart may be rolling into your vehicle if you just walk past it

+100 I totally agree. Well I try to do this for any vehicle if I am walking near that direction anyway. Problem is when there are multiple carts wild and about. Then I have to pick the most dangerous one or whatever.

People around here will walk away from a cart if they're one spot away from the corral... especially at WalMart.

Local HomeDepot parking lot was very poorly done and carts roll all over the place. That's the only place I really make a concious effort to park in the boonies. Other day two able-bodied 40-something guys got in a new pickup they'd parked way out away from everyone else and drove away from the flatbed cart they'd just unloaded. People just don't have any respect for anybody else anymore. :(

There was a vehicle next to the mustang when I first walked to get lunch. When I returned, the vehicle was gone and then there was the cart. The person who left must've got groceries and left it there. Sad......
