OK~ I'm out and about this morning. While parking my car, I notice six shopping carts just sitting randomly throughout the parking lot. I always make a point to put the car in the cart corral, cart it back into the store, or if I'm blessed to have someone walk by and say, "I'll take that," I pass the cart to them.
Are we that lazy in our society that we can't do something as simple as returning something to where it belongs? And there are times that the wind is blowing and it is very cold out, but I still make a point to secure the cart I have been using. Or, is it that we simply do not care? I don't know about you, but I really do not want a shopping cart ramming into the side of my car due to weather conditions, while I'm shopping inside a store. I have always made sure the shopping cart that I have used is in a secure place before I depart the parking lot. Now, I do understand that it is possible for one to escape from the cart corral, but six~ this Mom doesn't think so.
My boys have often commented through the years, "Mom, why do you always put the cart back?" I tell them that it is the right thing to do. When they were younger they would look around and ask me, "What about those carts?" And we wonder why our kids are the way they are? Helllooooo- it's time for us adults to get our act together! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
