almost every time I am there I get frustrated. I don't remember this being an issue in Nebraska, but I rarely went to Walmart since I had my beloved Hy-Vee across the street.
In the Wally World parking lot, there are plenty of cart corrals. They are located strategically throughout the lot for our convenience. The majority of Walmart shoppers, however, do not realize they exist.
Now, I realize it is HOT outside. It's
almost unbearable at times, but if you walked the 100 feet to you car, then you can walk the extra 10 feet to the nearest cart corral. But instead, and I have seen people do this, people put their items in their car, push the cart away just enough so they can back out without any problems and go on their merry way. Interestingly enough, it is usually the parking spots closest to the store (and the corrals) that are littered with carts.
Why is this such a big deal? Not only is it HOT, but it is WINDY. Those carts just fly around the parking lot on a windy day hitting other cars. I just do not understand, nor believe, that people are that busy that they cannot take the extra minute it requires to walk their carts to where they belong. I unfortunately do believe people are just this lazy, for I see NO other excuse for not returning a cart.
This week, I parked in a stall with 3 carts surrounding my car. In my frustration, I gathered up the carts and pushed them the 20 feet to the store. While doing this, I noticed a woman leaving her cart beside her car and then proceeding to clean out the trash from her car into the cart. She got into her car and drove away.
Whew. That feels better.
