We pulled into the only open parking spot in the grocery store lot…
Only to suddenly have to back out due to a shopping cart that was already parked there!
I’m curious –
What is The Shopping Cart Promise?
Is it real? Or is it something I have just imagined?
Please help me know if this is a “Promise” or not:
When you use a shopping cart in the store and push your purchases to the parking lot, you make an unspoken promise to return it, either to the store, or to the shopping cart stall, when you’re done.
Is this just my imagination?
I couldn’t see a sign anywhere telling me to do so.
There were suggestions –
I found multiple signs in the parking lot that said “Carts”, so I placed mine there.
Is that the right place?
Because then I noticed how many shopping carts weren’t in the cart return, but instead were taking up parking spaces, some halfway up a curb, four against a wall, and two rolling away.
So, Dear Reader:
If there is a Shopping Cart Promise, what is it, and do you keep it?
Not the cart, but The Promise!
