    I avoid Walmart because customers typically leave their carts wherever and I'm afraid one of them will end up blowing into the side of my car. We do shop at Sam's and there we have to do a cart inspection because at least half of their carts won't drive straight.

    I was at a strip mall the other day and went to several stores. We left a store and pushed the cart towards our car which was a small distance away. All of a sudden the wheels locked solid when we passed a buried wire. The electric safety mechanism kicked in. We had to carry our bags the rest of the way and I could barely drag the cart back to the corral. That cart probably has a flat spot if it was pushed back using the electric cart wrangler.

    You hope people would just be considerate and return the cart anyway. Kinda sad if you think about it.
    A lot of people do not carry cash today.

    How are you going to find a quarter for a shopping cart if you do not carry cash?

    We have an official "Aldi's quarter" that lives in the drink tray in the van specifically for this purpose
