The Post About Putting the Cart Before the Horse
Some things in life are absurd.
Children dying of preventable diseases. Drunk driving. Racism.
And then there's the truly absurd.
People who don't know what to do with a shopping cart after they're finished using it.
There are two groups of shoppers I need to address.
1. Those who leave the cart in the middle of a parking space or near a pole or on the end of an aisle. NONE of these are suitable resting places for your used buggy. NONE. There are only two appropriate spots. The first is the parking space with rails that usually has a large sign reading "Your Cart Goes Here. Thank You." The second is back inside the store usually near an elderly person welcoming you to the shopping establishment.
2. Those who manage to steer their cart to the above mentioned corral area, but fail to follow the universally agreed upon system of storage. Carts are intended to be pushed into one another. Not parallel or perpendicular or in the shape of your astronomical sign.
If you fall into either of these categories, I accept your apology.
