I didn't know a better place to post this but, I just finished watching a 40 minute daisy red rider review by who else but Nutnfancy. I was pretty surprised somebody would review that.

Why do people walk past several shopping carts in the parking lot at a store only to take a cart once they get inside?
I not only normally take one from the parking lot, I park out in the boonies so I can get a tiny bit of exercise walking in (though not always in inclement weather). Then when I am done with the cart I bring it back to the front door of the store- or I have the kids do it and meet them over there in the car.

Now then, the ones that made all the way to the parking lot surely must be very functional. They have gone thru the store under load and been successful in their mission. I get mine from the lot. Sometimes I offer to take the fresh empty ones from a shopper who is looking for the return spot. I ask if it was a good basket. Like they would tell me if it weren't. Maybe ??

To Winds; I can see where being the cart person would not be fun, especially in bad weather.
So, WOC, you want to deny youngsters employment by eliminating the need for their position as cart wrangler? harsh

I like to pick my cart up inside; i hate picking out groceries, so i will often just walk around the meat aisle, while people are picking out their meat, looking for a cart that has most of what i want/need already picked out. I like to take those carts; it has an element of surprise to it as well (whoa! a Cosmo). I can pop in, pick up a nicely loaded cart, maybe discard a few items i know i dont need, pick up some ice cream, and be done with my shopping in just a few minutes. This is an excellent way to find some new food choices if you are in a rut.

Even the damn bears want an Ipad! Yet another reason for their extermination/relocation.

Me bringing one cart in from the outside isn't going to put any kid out of business. Besides, my son did more than push carts. He stocked, unloaded trucks, etc.

I like the way you think. Great idea.

I also prefer the pre-stocked shopping cart. I usually select one from the curbside where they are loading groceries into the cars.

Be sure to tip the nice young man that loads the groceries into your car, and visit a different store each week to sample the full variety that this affords.

It has not only saved time, but my grocery bills are much lower.

Why do Many Handicap People Park in the Handicap space when there is an empty non handicap space right beside it? Arent they concerned about the next person with mobility issues not getting a spot?

Why do Students on my campus drive their cars 1/4 mile to the fitness center to walk on a moving belt?

Why is driving a 15 year old car worse on the environment than driving new every 4 years?

Why do we teach kids everything they ever wanted to know about sex before we learn them the responsibilities that go along with procreation?

Why would we rather a Social Services Recipient stay on services by taking them away if they earn an extra $20 bucks a week legally instead of slowly weaning them off by allowing them to succeed and get off the programs gradually.

I have so many whys and so few answers...
