Thing I am not: a Walmart employee.

Thing I should therefore have to do only when I have just finished moving my shit from my cart to my car, and not under any other circumstance: push carts around a Walmart parking lot.

Thing I did tonight anyway: push carts around a Walmart parking lot.

I don't know about the handicapped spaces at the left end of the building; the doors at that end aren't open at half past midnight. But every single handicapped space near the doors that are open at half past midnight contained either a car or at least one cart.

There were ten carts taking up handicapped spaces. Ten of them. And not one single fucking unoccupied handicapped space anywhere near the open fucking doors.

(I have just left an angry but polite complaint on walmart.com. Customer service desk isn't open at half past midnight either, or I'd have done it in person.)

Just this afternoon I tweeted about this, watching someone just come and dump their cart in a reserved space like it just didn't matter.

Stores know that this happens, the poles with the reserved signage are congregating points for carts because people use the poles to keep the carts from rolling. They don't handle the issue properly at all.

Oh my god I hate carts left languishing around store parking lots, even when they're not in handicapped spaces. I have been known to A) corral carts and put them into cart returns because seriously, wtf? and B) straighten up cart returns so more carts can fit.

Even when not in handicapped spaces, it never occurs to anyone that this is a really good way to damage cars/cause accidents, the whole leaving-your-cart-whereever-the-hell-you-want thing, and okay, some people really cannot manage more than getting their stuff into their car and going home. Most people can probably take an extra 30 seconds to put it back/in a cart return.

(...Hi, you found one of my weird pet peeves, sorry about the rant. D:)

Since I don't drive, I have the opportunity to motor into the store, find the customer service desk, and whine like a buzz saw about the mess out there where paying people would really like to park.

Definitely hits my rage button!
