Corollary: If you’re healthy, there’s no excuse for leaving an empty shopping cart in the middle of everything anywhere in the parking lot if the store has supplied numerous shopping cart deposit areas throughout the lot.
Exception: You’re having a heart attack and the paramedics are too busy to return the cart for you.
Okay, okay. Other exception: You are mobility impaired, the handicapped parking spaces are occupied, and walking without the support of the cart would be strenuous.
End of rant
