I’ve started a new habit.
It has to do with orphan buggies – or shopping carts as some may call them.
It seems everywhere I go – there are buggies everywhere. My pet peeve is people leaving carts in the middle of the parking lot because they can’t put them back where they belong.
And then sometimes, the buggy house is just too full.
Side note: as I was looking for images of a bunch of buggies this image came up in my google search and I could not stop laughing.
This is what we should do to habitual buggy orphanators!!!
Sometimes I’m walking in or out of the store and I notice people that could use a hand with their buggies. A mom with young kids. An elderly person in the heat loading their car.
I’m officially designating myself as a buggy helper.
Really – I’m gonna need a buggy when I get inside the store, so why not pick up one that someone has left in the lot while I walk in?
And will I really miss the extra minute it takes to help someone else with their buggy?
Who wants to join me?
Say no to orphan buggies. Be a buggy helper.
Start paying attention to buggies as you walk into stores. Grab an orphan in the middle of the lot. Help someone loading their car and offer to take their buggy as you walk in. Grab a buggy from the cart house and help the store clerks that will have to gather them later.
