I am mystified by shoppers who, after they pay for their purchases, walk away from the counter and leave their cart right there. I’m not furious at them (yet), but it seems so rude to me. “My duties as a shopper ended after I pocketed my receipt. This cart is the store’s problem now. I can’t be bothered to walk it all the way over to where the carts are kept.”
It’s not like that cart has disappeared just because you’re no longer looking at it. Yes, someone will move it – the person behind you. Me.
It’s a bit like littering. I don’t say anything out loud yet, but I can feel my internal muttering getting louder.
