I’ve always wondered why some people don’t put carts in the cart corrals. Some excuses could be reasoned, though not necessarily be proper etiquette:
The cart corral is too far away from my car.
I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to push the cart to the corral.
I’m not bothering with putting carts away because I’ve got screaming kids in the car.
I’m not bothering with putting carts away because I only care about me and my car.
It’s the store employees who corral carts, not me.
What’s a cart corral?
Only fools waste time putting carts in corrals.
Usually my significant other does that, not me.
It’s the wild west in parking lots; only the strong survive with carts strewn here and there, creeping towards the nearest car bumper or side, just wanting to leave a special mark for you.
Nobody showed me how to put the cart in the corral, so I don’t have to.
It’d be nice if there was an actual scientific poll asking about this phenomenon/nuisance.
