>I always return my shopping cart.

We're all incredibly impressed by that, Mr. Gruber.

Would be interesting to see how this varies by region. I moved from upstate NY to Oregon a few years back and I observed two things almost immediately: 1) people in Oregon are much better about returning their shopping carts. 2) public restrooms in Oregon are generally clean, even in places like gas stations.

John Gruber is Gods gift to the planet. God bless John Gruber.

Let it be known from now, John "Grocery Cart" Gruber shall be hailed as "Returner of All Carts"

Praise Gruber so that YOUR cart may not have a wobbly wheel.

i agree with gruber on this. people who don't return their carts are assholes. they're almost as bad as people who throw their towels on the floor in the gym locker room, when there's a towel drop on the way out. fucking assholes, the lot of them.

This is true. But actually bragging about returning your cart (like most people do) is fucking weird.

I hate the cunts that put their shoes on the benches in the change rooms (at pools, gyms etc). LEAVE YOUR FUCKING SHOES ON THE FUCKING FLOOR.

I actually like it when shopping carts are strewn about. Instead of having to walk, with two infants in tow, to the grocery store/Target/Home Depot entrance ,where they're all located, I like it when there's a random shopping cart three feet away, because "some asshole left it there and didn't return it."

So, how about that?

In Poughkeepsie the problem is so bad that most stores require a quarter ($0.25) deposit to unlock the cart from the queue, and then you get the quarter back when you return the cart and lock it back in.

I'll never forget one time when I was returning a cart and some bitch started yelling at me, "I ain't never gonna return a cart fer a goddamn quarter" like she was too fucking high and mighty to return a shopping cart.

When I am done pumping gas into my car, I ALWAYS place the pump back in its holster.
