Are you courteous and move your cart to the side or are you one of those freaks that happens to get distracted while walking down the middle of the aisle and just leave the cart where it is while you go and take a look at the distraction? :3
And while we're at it, if you have to take the cart to your car in the parking lot (duh), do you take the cart back to the cart return area afterwards!?
(Psst! If you can't tell, this post is a disguise for disgruntled ranting about shoppers that leave their shopping carts all over the place to block other shoppers. Probably not on purposes but still, it ain't difficult to be mindful of other people!)
But! One thing I DON'T understand and probably never will is why people walk on the freakin' road when there's a sidewalk free of people and obstacles and giant man-eating holes!!!!!
I'm talking about night hours around my street. No one's outside but once in a while, I'll encounter a lone person walking on the goddamn street wearing all fucking black!
People like this are just ASKING to be hit. And they probably deserve it too. >:(
That reminds me of a time I almost hit a couple of J-walkers. As I was coming out of this plaza I made sure to look left then right. I noticed a car coming from the right - I figured I'd be able to beat it so as I was going to make my left I nearly hit these two girls who were J-walking. Made me not want to drive for a while, but then again I probably should've looked left again before making my turn rather than while I turned left. I was mentally beating myself up about that :/
I bet she leaves her shopping cart in the middle of aisles too!
Someone should do a quick study on this: find a j-walker who happens to be on their way to go shopping and see if they leave their shopping cart in the middle of the aisle. There may be a connection here :O
My stepmother is one of those people that will just leave the cart wherever, and take a look at groceries. Plus, half the time, she can't manage to steer the thing properly (sometimes it's a cart with broken wheels, sometimes she's just tipsy). So, I'm usually stuck trying to make way for other people, or trying to help make sure she doesn't crash into something (she generally insists on pushing the cart).

I do the typical bachelor thing (it seems pretty common) and carry everything by hand. This occasionally causes problems. . . When I do have a cart, I follow common etiquette, as such things are important to me in all aspects, but its hard as hell now that I live in South Carolina, where manners are non-existent except for tourists and fellow "transplants."
Seriously, the stereotypes about southern politeness are complete BS. They put weight on titular formality, but so long as you say Sir or Maam while you stab a random person in the gullet, they seem to think its normal behavior. ---I've got scars to prove it!!!!
He who gets screwed by tentacle monsters should see to it he does not become one.
