Shopping Cart-ma

Our Costco entrance area is sort of like a stage . . . it has two long ramps on the side and short but wide stairs in front. As I was exiting Costco, I saw a man parking his shopping cart atop of the stairs. He took out his stuff (which looked like three pillows), left the shopping cart where it was, and proceeded down the steps to leave. How rude of him to leave his shopping cart in the middle of a busy walkway like that. When he began to walk through the parking lot, a strange thing happened. The shopping cart started moving on its own. It rolled perfectly down the stairs and into the parking lot - directly towards the man. The man was surprised to be gently bumped in the rear by a shopping cart! Well, I think he knew it was "his" cart. He may have realized he shouldn't have left it atop of the stairs like that . With a grumpy face, he put the pillows back into the cart and pushed it onward. That's what he got for not returning the shopping cart to a proper place - it was shopping cart-ma (kharma ). Have you seen kharma at work lately?

The shopping cart reminded him of his duty.

Now that is payback for a bad deed. Would have been fun to watch that happen.

This all happened in a very short time . . . it was interesting watching it all unfold. There wasn't even any time to warn the guy . . . but well, maybe it was better he learned this way.

I don't know how the words come to me - the funny thing is I always tell true stories . Yah, I think can think of certain people I know that kharma needs to drop in on a little more often .

@TiarasOceanView I suppose if it weren't against the rules, I'd be using more "colorful" words

I suspect that carts moving on their own, are like tables turning during séances of spiritualism. You really did not realized that you pushed a bit this cart?

If I did, I must have used my telekinetic powers . But honestly, if I had such powers, I'd hope I'd be doing more than playing pranks on shoppers .

Lol, I haven't lately but I'm glad he took it with him after he was "gently" reminded to do the right thing.

I wasn't sure what he would do after getting hit either . . . hopefully he did the right thing after that and left the shopping cart smiling .

I'll bet he didn't lear a thing and will park his cart in a busy walkway any day of the week.

I think so too. People like that keep doing the stupid things they always do - because they don't care. Seriously, it's not a big deal to walk a cart to where it belongs!

@much2say I went to Costco yesterday and they were giving out samples. People just parked their cart right in the middle of the aisle while they carried on a conversation with the person giving out samples.

@RichardMeister Ohhhh, I hate that so much too . Some people (like a lot of people) have no sense of moving their cart out of the way - they have no concept of space or being courteous! So what samples did you get?

@much2say Maybe they should all be like Aldi. You put a quarter in a slot to get a buggy and Return it to get your quarter back.

@RubyHawk Ah, I didn't realize there were places that did that (we don't have an Aldi out here). Oh my gosh, if they started that in this part of CA, I'm sure people would be so mad! But it makes sense, doesn't it?

"As you brew, so much you drink"!That served the guy right! It is inconceivable that the shopping cart was moving on its own in the nick of time and hit the guy.I am not sure if the kharma means wrongdoers are paid out in the end.

Isn't it funny? Unbelievable that a shopping cart would do that - it's as if it had a mind and will of its own! Yes, it's the same as saying do good and good may come back to you . . . or if you do something bad, bad will be returned to you.

Costco carts are big (probably the same for any of those warehouse stores - like Sam's Club). They are too big that there is no room to store them inside . . . people grab them from the rows outside. So they do need to be returned outside . . . but not in the middle of a busy walkway like this guy did!

Yes, I always pick up a piece of trash or two as I walk Downtown, and properly dispose of it. I did this one morning, and five minutes later I found a dollar in the middle of the street. Instant Karma!
