GROCERY SHOPPING Parking Lot con't

10.  You know, the cart corral is pretty easy to figure out.

3 sides have metal bars and the front is open, perfect for containing the cart when you've dropped off your groceries in your car.

The cart's back side usually folds in to the basket, so that when another cart is pushed against the back, that cart will slide in to the one in front of it, somewhat locking the carts together and "compacting" the line, allowing more more carts to be stored in a given space.

But, it seems, this concept is difficult for a lot of people because you see carts that are sideways, not pushed together or jammed in to a row that isn't wide enough for them!

Also, being a late night shopper, I see corrals that are over filled with carts, sticking way out from where they should have stopped.. A few manage to get lose and roll in to the driving lane of the parking lot...

OK, may be no one is free from the store to bring them inside every once and a while, I can see that...

But, why do people keep adding on to the ever-growing cart line when an alternative is so easy to do?!

This is what I do:

Usually the corral is put in one of the parking spaces and is a little narrower than the spot.

So, the inside of the corral is full, but there is that "free" space next to it that is about the same width as the cart.

I just start a new line next to the corral and hope others will use it instead of continuing to make the inside lines longer!

Pretty simple.
