As far as not returning the cart…

Yes, I form an opinion about people who don’t return them. It isn’t as low as the one that I hold for people that are cruel to animals, or for people that park in handicapped parking spaces without a permit to do so, but it isn’t much better either.

You and I are clearly on the same wavelength regarding this issue. I can understand some juvenile silliness but actually causing trouble for people who have done nothing to me is not to my taste. And as for abusing animals and hassling people with disabilities goes, I have no polite words for that and I'd rather not be suspended for a week.

Looks like no "fun" for me...instead a message to my counselor to raise concerns that the cart lock may unintentionally adversely affect some more than others....not fun at all....

@KatKomics
So many other ways to have fun. I like hosting cruddy movie night for my fun. Pick a cruddy movie and have a gang of friends over to heckle it and eat pizza. That's my kind of fun!

We get lobster rolls every few years (more often if you are in the right region)

Filet O Shrimp sounds good but chicken mac seems like too much!

This is a huge issue in FL. Between the sky high homelessness and high % of elderly people, my local Publix was losing like 20 carts/week.

If it's too greasy it would definitely be too much.

Yeah, we had a big problem at some of the stores in my area, too. Carts being stolen and vandalised to the point where it was costing stores some serious money. You can be sure the costs for that got passed on to shoppers.

The chicken big Mac seens like they use the cheap chicken sandwiches. Not the premium chicken. If that's the case I cant imagine the draw. But the premium chicken would be huge and only a glutton could finish the thing off.

I dunno. Apparently this is a popular sandwich in the UK. But I'm told the UK taste buds are very bland compared to America.

So it's from the UK. I'll at least give it a try, but yeah, it could wind up being very 'meh.' The UK is a lovely place and a number of my ancestors came from there, but we are talking about a country that believes Domino's makes some of the best pizza.

Sadly from where I live I see the homeless with the publix carts because they have all their worldly possessions in the cart. They have no car or home to store their stuff so they use carts to move their belongings.

Not saying they are right, but sometimes in dire circumstances you do questionable things. It's the people in fortunate circumstances that do questionable things that irritates me.....

So in my neighborhood, a lot of kids are buying motorcycles that are not street legal and are doing wheelies and stunts in traffic. Am I a bad person for hoping something happens to them so they don't do this stupid crap? I had a coworker whose brother did some questionable stuff and lost tbe ability to walk. I had / have zero sympathy for him. I only feel bad for his mom because she will be caretaking him until she dies.

One of the best pizzas I ever had was at a Pizza Hut in London (England, not London, Ontario).

Pizza Hut makes a tasty pizza. I'd go there over Domino's any day of the week.

For Cruddy Movie Night, though, we tend to go local and get Rusty's.

We'll be sharing a space in Purgatory for a while if that's the case.

1 in the afternoon in Australia - bet my wine maker was surprised I was still awake and checking work e-mails on our side of the world to ask him a question!! usually I expect a couple days to get an answer i.e. I send when he's asleep - he responds when I'm asleep and usually there is some back and forth so it can take a few days unless we schedule a call -glad I was checking work e-mails late to speed the process for this one!

Still up working a deal on a cabin. Seller was pissed the buyer accepted their counter offer. He should be kissing their ass. If it closes, he will have made $550,000 on a $335,000 investment over a period of three years.

I can't figure out if I'm a good guy or a bad guy. Yesterday I parked deep into the parking lot and the car next to me was unloading from a cart. I waited and said "since I'm going in, I will push your cart back for you". On the other hand, I don't have the same reverence for Handicap spaces that I did maybe 20-30 years ago. Qualifying for a handicap placard seems like such a gray area anymore. It seems that "disabled" ain't always what it used to be. If parking is difficult and the handicap spots are open, I've been known to duck into one for a very quick stop like a cup of coffee at 7-11. I've also been known to occasionally park in the "take-out delivery only" spots of a restaurant, when parking was tough otherwise. This did backfire on me recently when I watched the poor sweet lady from the restaurant walk out with a bag of hamburgers and try to deliver it to my empty car, coming back confused. My wife and daughter were there to witness my shame. I won't be doing that anymore.

I've never parked in a handicapped space, but I've been sorely tempted on occasion. I have always either pushed my cart back to the store or left it in a designated cart corral. I have asked for a senior discount before when I was just a teensy bit off for it, and I confess that I haven't felt all that bad. I'm sure I'll be spending an uncomfortable night in Purgatory for that one.

I have a handicap permit due to surgery on my feet and my dr wrote it for the 2 year duration vs the temporary 6 month. After walking with a cast I learned the handicap spots are sacred for those who need it. Although I am well enough now to where I dont need it, I will use it when I am driving my dad around. He has one for when he was driving, but he voluntarily gave up driving so I take him where he needs to go now. But he has a heart condition so I feel no guilt with him in the car.....

I don't need a handicap permit but I have a friend who has one. She has access issues and walks with a cane. She went for as long as she could with no permit but finally got one. Too tough to carry shopping bags and use her cane at the same time. She, and other people with issues, really do need those spaces, and not all issues are readily visible, so if I see someone who seems spry enough but has a placard, I leave it alone.

Unfortunately many people take advantage of the -not all handicaps are readily visible- reality and abuse placards all the time.

I still refuse to use handicapped spaces, even when driving some of my nicer cars and being forced to park them out of sight in a lot far, far away*. There were also extended periods where I had pretty severe knee pain/issues due to injury. I should have requested one for myself but never did.

I also return shopping carts but usually only my own. Not picking up after others. I’ll say I prefer someone dumping the cart near shrubbery over the jack-holes who will leave their cart beside other cars. Free to roll and ding doors/damage property (well, not if a wheel is locked lol). Jack-holes.

Odd segue but is there inverse correlation between following distance while driving and IQ? There must be. For those here who tailgate, can you explain your rationale?



* As many car enthusiasts can attest, intentionally parking in an empty/distant part of the lot makes sense. But there is a hierarchy of preference depending on circumstance. Sort of like comic handling/slabbing/storage.

@Davethebrave
I kind of tailgate. My reason is that I HATE people who just glide in at the last minute without turn signal and make me brake really hard to avoid accident.

People in Florida are down right rude when driving. If you see signs that the lane is closing you move over as soon as you see the signs. You don't use the empty lane as a means to skip folks and squeeze in at the last minute.

...and don't even think about using your turn signal to telegraph an intent to change lanes! Unless of course you feel like participating in a reinactment of the chariot race in Ben-Hur...

@WMorse

I try and get in needed lane way early so I dont have that problem. I also leave really early for appointments so I have plenty of time to get where I need to be without being late.

I'm so early that one time my dentist called me 30 minutes before appointment to ask where I was. I told her I was in parking lot taking a phone call and would be right in.
