    Do you mean where do you let in linger in the store while you browse and shop, or where do you leave it after you have taken it into the parking lot and unloaded your purchases??

    The second. :duck: We never had a thread discussing the first one. :idea:

    A shopping cart thread can get so heated, the American Civil War, where brother fought brother, was less intense. :scared:

    I'm from the South too, but I think technically a cart is pushed and a buggy is pulled so shopping vehicles, must be carts.

    I can't stand butter on my bread. Don't like bread toasted either. :duck:

    I was raised that you only take one of something, never even ask for more (only take more if it's offered & it's obvious there's extra for everyone), but also try not to judge others when they appear rude as you may never know the whole story.

    Shortly after moving into a new neighborhood several years ago, I had a bday party for my DD. We had way more food than necessary and invited all the neighbors and kids that we saw outside to hang out and eat some food and cake. At one point, I saw a maybe 9ish year old boy sneak in, grab a plate of around 6 hotdogs and run off. A few mins later, I saw him come back and shove several individual size bags of chips sneakily into his jacket while looking around nervously, before running off again. I just laughed, looked over at a neighbor and explained what I saw. She frowned and said the kid is known for occassionally sneaking into parties and stealing food. Apparently, his mom was disabled and didn't work and he had some younger siblings. She said everyone always looks away when he takes food because she doesn't think the family gets enough to eat.

    I immediately started boxing up food (the party was pretty much over anyway), and waited, hoping the kid would return. He did and I asked him if he wanted the leftovers so I wouldn't have to throw it out. He looked embarrassed at first when I approached him, then broke into a huge grin once he realized I wasn't going to chastise him and instead was offering him the food. I loaded up a wagon with the leftovers and offered to walk him home. He freaked out and said his mom would be mad at him if she saw him with a stranger, so I told him to return the wagon when he was done and to come back in a couple weeks. Every two weeks after that, I loaded the wagon with food, he'd come by and take it, and my wagon would be returned later.

    You never know what's going on in someone else's life.

    What posts are you reading exactly?

    She had just had a conversation with the little boy! And as soon as she told him no, the other kid grabbed 5, she gave the last one to the little boy standing there so she had to be standing right there. You can't tell me a 5 year old can find the person to ask but a teenager can't?

    What other kids are you referring to? She mentions TWO kids. The 5 year old and the teen. Doesn't sound like there was time for anyone to get the oranges between little boy asking, rude teen grabbing and pp giving the last one to the little boy.

    I would not have cared much if I had been in the PP's shoes. BUT that doesn't mean I wouldn't not have thought he was a rude snot for doing what he did.

    I'm also from the South & have always called it a shopping cart. I guess this is another one of this "DIS loved" regional things. :duck:
