You know that feeling when you want to throat punch the guy who left a shopping cart in a prime parking spot because he was too lazy to push it into one of those corrals? You wouldn't be the cause of all this mess, would you?

I don't understand the philosophy on not pushing the shopping cart back into one of those shopping cart bins or back to the store. If you use something, you'd think you'd push it back. The only thing I can think of are those who say, "someone gets paid to do that," which is partially true. They get paid to work there and getting shopping carts back to the store is part of their job, but they'd be more apt to be on-hand to help you with something of so much of their day wasn't consumed with a task that you couldn't help with.

The only other example I can think of is you have a kid in your cart and, after you put your groceries in your car and strap your kid in, you don't want to leave you child unattended.

If this is an issue for you, simply enough, park next to one of those bins. That way you don't have to walk around to find one and your kid is right there.

Like how you should treat others the way you want to be treated, same thought process applies to putting your cart back because you wouldn't want your car to get dinged or have a great parking spot that you can't take advantage of because someone was too lazy to put their shopping cart back.
