It happened people!! My first REAL LIFE exchange with an evil-doer-no-cart-returner!!! I literally just got home and rushed over to my lap top to type it all out since it's fresh in my mind. God, I'm a dork.
Anyway I'm in a hurry so here goes...
I went to Target for a few essentials. Left the store with 2 HEAVY bags but decided to go cart less because I parked on the other side of the shopping complex, not even close to the Target aisles so I would have had to meander my way through many lanes and aisles of traffic so screw that. As I'm exiting the store a woman proceeds to push her cart to the far end of the outside of the store, on the corner of the sidewalk and just leaves it right there!! Not even balancing up against anything. Not only that, she had half a watered down ICED COFFEE from Starbucks still in the cup holder!!! So I thought ok maybe she's just leaving it here while she runs into another store so let me just wait. Nope. She turns away from the cart and walks away. We are now facing each other and I say very sweetly, "You left your coffee in there." She says, "Oh. I'm finished with it." OMG I could feel my blood boiling. There was sooooooo much I wanted to say people and maybe I should have been more upset but all that came out was, "Oh...really? Hmm." That's it, no roundhouse kick or nothin'! But, what I did do was hoist up my purse and heavy bags and walked over to the cart and picked up her nasty ass slimy Iced Coffee and then walked very fast in her direction (actually catching up with her so she could see me) to the cement trash barrel outside. I plopped it into the bin making sure to give it extra force so she heard it. She did because she looked right at me when I did this and instead of going ape shit and ranting and raving at her sloth like behavior, I just smiled at her. Then, I walked back to the cart (I was on a mission) and wheeled it back inside the store. I watched as the evil doer got into her vehicle and was not the least bit surprised when she climbed into her fricking house-boat sized Hummer.
Ok so I'm thinking the next time this happens I want to follow these people and get a picture of them (like a mug shot) and their car with their license plates. Then I want to post the pics up on the board at Target or grocery stores (sort of like a most wanted billboard) but it would be alerting all shoppers to beware of these Lazy Ass Non Cart Returners!
I have a feeling I'm probably going to get my ass kicked very soon.
and real quick, I just bought a bottle of Dove's new Go Fresh Energizing body wash. The grapefruit and lemongrass scent is delicious! It's summer in a bottle. And the 24 ounce size is on sale for $4.99 so this should last all summer (and then some considering how infrequently I bathe).
