Why do so many people at Bozeman struggle with this simple task?

People are busy, I understand.

We live in a fast-paced world and many of us have places to go and people to see, however, I’d like to think we’re not that busy that we can show a little common courtesy . Seriously, I’m not asking for much here.

Why do so many people in this town struggle to put away their shopping carts? It’s not a difficult task, and almost every retail parking lot in town has several different areas to properly place the cart after you’re done using it.

I didn’t really start to notice it until last holiday season when I was doing my Christmas shopping. It seemed like almost every parking lot I went to had caddies where the caddies aren’t long. Listen, I understand. It’s winter, it’s cold, it’s snowing, blah blah blah. Nobody wants to be outside more than they have to, but in this case it literally takes seconds to complete a simple task.

Oh, and I’m not the only one who noticed. I asked people in town if they had noticed an increase in abandoned shopping carts around Bozeman parking lots and many said they had.

For those who leave their shopping carts everywhere, I would say this. Stop being so lazy! Also, don’t use the “well, the store pays people to do this” excuse. Just because a company pays people to pick up carts from designated locations doesn’t mean you’re rude or inconsiderate.

Your rudeness not only takes up valuable parking spaces, but it’s also a hazard and can damage vehicles in the lot, which the person who owns the vehicle must then repair at their own expense. The last thing we want to do is pay out of pocket because you can’t take another 30 seconds and be a decent human being.

So, for those of you who are still doing this, once again. Stop that.
