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?

@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.
"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!
