    Put back in a designated spot
    First job was at a grocery store bagging, stocking and cart corralling. Any time I return my cart after unloading groceries, I gladly collect any stray carts in my path and push them to the designated area. I also often fix the fucking mess of carts in the corral because it drives me crazy that somebody got it all the way to the spot and then half-ass shoved it in off center, sideways or completely out of it so they stick out beyond the space they are intended to be in. I'm sure we've all gotten to the store and seen that overloaded return area with the kittywampus carts sticking out all jagged and fucked up with a few strays next to it.

    Edit: While I'm on it, I also can't stand it when a store doesn't let me bag my groceries. Most people have no fucking clue how to bag. They either think I'm a fragile 90 year old nursing home resident and put 5 items in my reinforced canvas bag or toss frozens and fridge items in a variety of bags instead of together. Not to mention that during the height of the pandemic last year when I couldn't use my cloth bags and had to endure idiots trying to double paper bag every damn thing and still only fill it half-full. Fill it up people! The earth is fucked enough already.

    I have just spent time walking around the store who knows how many steps. The few steps to get the cart back where it belongs doesn’t strike me as any real hardship.

    I worked in retail and it's a pain in the ass when you had to retrieve the shopping carts all over the parking lot. Especially during the Christmas season.

    Pushing a string of carts in the snow sucks.

    I believe he may just be referring to the increase in shopping carts left all over during the Christmas season, not because of snow conditions, correct???  Signifying that during the holidays, even more people suck.

    I was mainly thinking of increase cause of the Christmas season. Although the snow conditions did kinda suck as well.

    Lol!
  • Other
    I choose other as I usually put the trolley (carridge, lol!) back in the designated area at the front of the store. I occasionally take the trolley back to designated spots scattered around the car park. 

    The odd few times I might leave the trolley near the car parking space but not obstructing a car parking space.

    Sometimes after I have emptied the shopping into the car someone might ask if they can take the trolley which is an added bonus!

    Places like Aldi you have to take the trolley back if you want your pound coin back.

    Trolley 🚎 is pretty funny as well.
    Some odd names we come up with for a cart on wheels.

    I was just recounting to my wife about how when I was a kid, my friends and I used to use shopping carts to ford the creek behind the shopping center so that we wouldn’t have to go the long way. Thing is even after we had built a passable path, we still threw carts down in that creek nearly every time we met at that particular shopping center. I want to say cheap thrills, but we must’ve cost that particular Kash n’ Karry and KMart a small fortune in shopping carts.
