  • I do. It really annoys me when carts are laying around the parking lot. I mean, how hard is it to walk a few extra feet to put it away?

  • I do, I worked in grocery stores since I was 15, I'd feel really bad if I put my cart ahead of my car, and a strong wind took it right into another car. They've made me get carts when they were short handed in that department, it's a never ending job, and also very dangerous, have you seen how people drive in parking lots? Most cart pushers are between 15-18 yrs old. They are children, give them a break.

  • I always return my cart to the cart corral. I'd feel guilty if I didn't....I don't know, I am weird. I think about the person who has to collect them all...makes their job easier. At our Kroger's they hire people with disabilities and some of these poor kids have a hard enough time pushing the carts back into the store.

  • I don't. I usually don't buy a ton when I shop and just take my bags from the cart and leave it at the front door where I found it. I try to spend as little time in parking lots as possible. They're just not safe when you're carrying around two little kids, your bags and you're distracted. I usually park towards the front of the store.

  • If everyone returned their carts like they are supposed to someone at the store wouldn't have a job. Not returning the cart is helping the economy. jk

  • I do because a month after I got my brand new a shopping cart at walmart hit it and did some major damage to my front driver side door.

  • I try to park right near them so I don't have to leave my baby in the car to go return it. If I can't park close to it then I just leave it because I hate walking away from the car with my son inside. They have a guy who gets paid to put it back so I don't feel that bad. If my son isn't with me then I always return it.
