Why do some people not put the carts where they belong?
Am I the only person who gets really frustrated at some people’s laziness? I’ve witnessed people at the grocery store that are parked in the first non-handicapped stall just leave their cart next to the building or between the parking spots instead of walking the 20 ft necessary to bring it back inside or to the closest corral. Why do people think this is acceptable behavior?
@XeromusPwndCecil, have you ever heard of the shopping cart theory of self governance? Basically, it states that some people return their carts because it’s The Right Thing to Do, while other people don’t return their carts because there’s no law forcing them to do it. The theory goes on to say that only the first group of people can be trusted to follow the social contract in a state without any penalties for disobeying the social contract.
TL;DR some people are dicks, and they can only be kept in line with the threat of punishment.
@Kyroll, fvck I was gonna comment about that. Ahh well you explained it better than i would have anyway.
@Kyroll, then punish them we let stupid have too much power if we were to punish them every time they do something stupid they’d stop or at least stay silent
@XeromusPwndCecil, even as a lazy person this pisses me off. I usually take the cart myself when I go into the store and use it, but with Covid being a thing, I figure it's best not to. If they don't care about leaving a shopping cart who knows what else they don't care about taking care of.
@Kyroll, and thus the reason we have laws in the first place I suppose. Shame served the same utility once upon a time, but that’s all but gone now too. 🤷♂️
@Kyroll, I don't put the cart back because it's the right thing to do. I put it back because I like to send it fast into the corral and watch it smash
Pretty sure I could be stabbed halfway through putting my groceries an my car and I would still put my cart away
I feel like it should be a capital offense and since I live in Texas I’m pretty sure it is
Ah yes, the Duluth flood of 2012. What a mess that was. And respect to that guy for at least trying to make a difference.
