It has always been, and always will be a pet peeve of mine.

Why someone can't return their shopping cart to the appropriate place, whether it's back to the store, or at one of those cart corrals.

There is nothing like seeing what you think is an available parking space, only to find a cart or 2 in the space. Or, when you come out from the store and find that someone has left a cart near your vehicle and may have even hit your vehicle, creating a lovely scratch or dent.

My all time favorite is seeing a cart in the parking space next to the corral - seriously, a whole, 2 feet away.

I just have to wonder if it really takes that much extra time and effort to put these things in a proper place?
