I know there have been many debates on the shopping cart. I also don't remembering seeing anyone say that if you don't put it away and if it hits a car denting it or scratching it, it will be your fault. I only say this because I was at wall mart and some lady did not put her shopping cart back and it hit another car. well the owner was in the car and came out to see what happen. When he saw the scratch he yelled at the lady. It got so bad security had to come and break up the fight. Well the cops came and made the lady give the guy her insurance info or something and they made a report. All I could do is shake my head. Well just a little heads up for next time you don't want to put your shopping cart away.
