Meijer has one hitch
Facking car grocery carts
Curse the inventor
Oh you KNOW the carts I’m talking about (buggies to my Southern readers!…how ya’ll doing? Enjoying your warm weather, are you while I’m suffering here in the PERMAFROST?)
It’s bad enough taking two kids grocery shopping. What makes it worse is trying to get a limp-noodle-screaming-banshee into a real cart after he’s seen one of those car carts. It’s an understatement to say that ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE.
I imagine that a very well meaning person (probably a MAN *ahem*) designed a car cart thinking, “THIS is a brilliant idea that will make shopping with kids FUN! and EASY!”
In a word, NO. In two words, FACK NO.
Firstly they are impossible to steer. Displays, other customers, food on shelves, ANYTHING AT ALL in the store is likely to be creamed by a rogue, out of control car cart. Secondly, they aren’t even a full size basket, so once you’ve put one kid in the seat and the other in the basket part, you now have room to buy lipstick and a greeting card. Lipstick and a greeting card WON’T FEED THE FAMILY.
So to conclude this tirade, I think we should write our congressmen about the very important issue of eradicating car carts from grocery stores across the nation. Sure we have other “important” issues like baseball players doing steroids and a Presidential election, but SURELY our congressmen would see the necessity of legislation banning car carts.
Who’s with me?
