Isn't it ironic? Don't you think?

Today I visited a store to purchase something for someone's birthday.

I used a cart.

I took my purchases out to the car and emptied the cart.

Noticing the massive winds whirling around the area today, I took the cart back inside the store because of the lack of "cart corrals" in the parking lot.

I know some people find themselves too lazy to bring a cart back inside the store if there is a lack of convenient storage, but I am not one of those people.

I pushed through the winds, back inside the store, and back to my car just in time to see...

a cart careening towards my front bumper.


Because I took the time to save someone else's car from the potential of my wind blown cart, my own car got creemed by someone else's.

Luckily the E is primarily made of plastic and the cart simply bounced off as I lunged forward to catch it.

Please, people, take the two minutes to return the cart to a spot where it won't get blown into innocent cars.

Is that really too difficult? Hmmm?

Oh!!! That is one of my biggest pet peeves - it takes like, what, a minute and a half to return a cart properly!!!

Lazy people!!!

p.s. the karma will all be made right in the end - of that I'm sure.
