I’m usually pretty mellow, but there are some things really get on my nerves. This may become a regular feature on my blog. I share with you my biggest pet peeves of the week. This week it’s shopping carts left in the middle of a parking space.
I’m driving along and find a great parking spot. I’m thinking to myself Ha! I am the parking lot queen!. I start to pull into the parking space only to find the reason why no one else took the spot – there’s a shopping cart sitting there… and it’s in front of the shopping cart bay. Well, crap! I am not giving up this spot. So I say “Lauren, get out and move the cart”. Lauren shoots me with the evil eye, gets out in a huff and moves the cart to the shopping cart bay. Then I smile at her, and nod my head to say Yes, Lauren. This is exactly why I had children – for things like this. Now, there are two people that have been completely annoyed. This makes for a bad shopping experience.
Shopping carts can also do a lot of damage to a car. Some stray cart came crashing into my taillight a couple of years ago and because my taillight was all one piece, the entire thing had to be replaced and cost me $150! I was not happy.
Shopping carts left in parking spaces makes me mad. I always put them where they belong. You should too. And if you don’t want to put it back yourself, make your kids do it. And if you don’t have any kids, make, adopt, or kidnap one so you can have one handy for things like this.
