Letter to the Editor: Careless carts

This really bothers me and there are those of you who hate this too. I'm talking about people leaving their shopping carts either in the parking lot or against a light pole.
People who do this are lazy, rude and inconsiderate. They could care less if the cart hits a car or not, as long as they save a minute in their lives.
This seems to be a more common occurrence and even though I can barely walk, I don't ever do this.
I cannot help giving my 2-cents to someone who does this. If I see people doing this I let them know, although it does no good. I am very careful where I park my car so I am not a victim of a shopping cart that's run into my car.
Time after time I see this, and most of the time, the cart can be put up either close to or inside the store or in a kiosk in the parking lot, but people still choose to leave it in the parking lot. Stores could put a stop to this by not allowing a shopping cart outside without a store employee. Yes, it's a hassle, but rules are made because they are needed.
A minimum-wage job is far less than the cost of your car going to the body shop. For those of you who do this, I hope the next cart puts a nice big dent in your car.
Think about it.
