Do you return your shopping carts to the appropriate places?

Was at the store earlier and wondered how many people actually return their carts to the cart corrals?

  • I try. But if I have to leave my toddler in the car to take a cart to a cart return spot that is three aisles away, forget it! I do make sure my cart won't roll away and hit another car though.

  • yes, i ALWAYS do... and it makes me absolutely crazy when someone doesn't. i hate the excuse that some moms use that they have small kids. i don't care... stop being lazy

  • I do too, most of the time, unless it's extremely nasty and I don't feel like walking my ass back to find a spot to put it. I like the idea Aldi's had with the quarter thing.... I wonder if that has helped any???

  • I always do i cant stand those who dont it drives me nuts to pull into a spot only to find its got a damn cart in the way. I have chldren i know its a pain and you dont wana leave your kid in the car so dont you can push them in the basket to the corral and then carry them to the car.

  • i always do, especially here in germany. you actually have to use a 1euro coin to use the cart ;) (u get it back of course, when you return the cart)

  • The majority of the time I do, unlike a few days ago there was too much snow in the area where you place the carts it wouldn't go in. I lodged it in there

  • I do. it is good for you the walking and the guy that goes and pick up all the carts don't have to do it
    well we cut their jobs in half I guess.
