I've noticed a lot of people don't have it.
There are people who will take up the entire lane with their cart so no one can pass.
There are people who will have full blown conversations on their phone with their cart in the middle of the aisle. This happened at Target when I went the day after Christmas. This woman was asking what kind of lights she should get. Small? Or large? Or colored? I was thisclose to taking her phone and telling whomever she was talking to, "She's bringing home the small lights. Good day," just so she'd MOVE already.
Just say excuse me, you might be saying.
She didn't hear me because she was on the phone.
So I tried to move her cart aside and she grabbed the handle and glared at me so I couldn't move it. It's not like I was going to push it ACROSS THE STORE. I was moving it to the SIDE.
I eventually squeezed my way past her...I think I ran over her foot. I apologized even though I wanted to say, "If you'd have just moved your cart to the side, I wouldn't have run over your big toe."
There was another woman parked in the middle of an aisle staring at ornaments as though it were a tough decision. Should I get the plastic shoe? Or the Sully figure? I'd have gone with Sully. She stared and stared and I'm sorry, if you go to Target the day after Christmas and are in the Christmas aisle, know you don't have the leisure of taking your time. There are tons of other people who are there, doing the same thing you are. Park your cart TO THE SIDE or at the END OF THE AISLE so people can still go by.
Why don't people comprehend this?
I said excuse me again.
I tried to push the cart to the side myself.
Was given another scowl and the woman quickly grabbed her cart away. But at least she moved it to the side.
"Sor-RY!" she said in a snotty tone as though I were the rude one.
Please use it.
