Lazy customers won't put away shopping carts | Letters

I am appalled of the indecency of people not putting their shopping carts in the appropriate places the stores provide.

I find them in parking spaces, sidewalks and flower beds. I know people get paid for putting them in the proper places, but how come we as customers can’t be more considerate?

Whenever I see a cart not where it is supposed to be, I take the time to put it away. I know I am not the only one who is upset about this, but it is a major pet peeve of mine.

I am just tired of the “laziness” of all customers who won’t walk a simple 2 or 3 feet to put the carts where they belong.
