        I think shopping carts are funny things....

        Today I walk into the store. I advance directly to the cart section, selected a shopping cart that had a bum wheel, exasperated, I returned it to select yet another one that proved to be even more annoying. :-\
                  Oh it happened, I ended up with the wild wheeled cart!  I got the one cart with the wild wheel that has a mind of it's own!
                I think these stores need to have Wheelie Doctors on-site or something, get a replacement wheel, pop the old one off and then the put this new wheel on and you are good to go! Instead they scare the bejesus out of non-suspecting customers with this loud wild wheeled cart. I always get the last pick of the cart litter, and I have the one that sounds like it's taking up the concrete/tile floor of the grocery store you are in as you push it along!

        You can hear the wild wheeled carts as they approach, you listen out to see where they are going to be next, you can hear the clanking of the wheel and it sounds as if it's closing in on you! 

        Shopping carts  went from rickety metal to the huge plastic monstrosities now at many local stores.  Have any of you seen some of these new little versions of shopping carts?  Your are lucky can carry a gallon of milk, a few boxes and several cans and all of a sudden you have a full cart! You are thinking, "Sheeesh! I should have gotten the monster shopping cart if I had known I would end up with no room in this mini shopping buggy that holds less then 20 items"!  Be aware, if you have things such a two liters in the new little buggys, and take a corner to fast, everything  topples over the side. 

          I know I am not the only one to experience the shopping cart nightmare.

                                    All in fun: PMM2008

        LOL Pam!

        I call them Al Bundy carts.. clunkity clunk, clunkity clunk!

        And don't even try to go fast..
        And how about the ones that lock wheels, when you take them to far
        happen while you are shopping, suddenly you are sucker punched
        with a shopping cart..

        Great post Pam!!!

        I have never heard of a cart that stops on you if you go to far. Tell me more.

              I was just sitting here thinking about when carts are abandoned in the parkiing lot. Then a big wind comes up and away they go on their own. BAM, right into trees, curbs, cars, and people. HAHAHA
                    Run for your livessss............

        Outside the stores, they put some type of electrical static
        field, around the boundaries when you try to go to far,
        or maybe try to remove the cart from the
        lot, the wheels will lock up and you can't move the cart.
        Sometimes in the stores it just happens, the wheels lock
        You have to get someone with a cart unlocker to get going again

        Yes the ol' carts with minds of their own, getting their paypack!

        HAHAHAH, I can picture it now, walking along, minding your own business and BAM, the cart locks up on you. HAHAHAH.. You made me laugh.
                I have never seen a cart that locks up on you in this part of the world where I live. Must be new fangled stuff out in your neck of the ds.

          By the way, I didnt think a grocery store was necessary in Vegas with all those buffets to choose from.

        Damn good thing I already did my shopping Imagin.That's one thing I DO miss about hitting Reno/Vegas..Those cheap meal deals..

        (Except for that time at CC, the clam was bad)

        My way of beating the "Cart from hell" problem, is to go in the morning as they have sooooo many to choose from and even if I do get a nasty one, the people I'd pick off are usually store employees.

        They of course just avoid me whenever I come in though..(Darn)
