    You know, I understand it's a problem when you're a young mother, and have the kids in tow and have to go grocery shopping. When I go to store, I immediately check out the carts, try and find one that I can push in a straight line, and then grab some of those handiwipes they have and wipe down the handles, and especially wipe the little area where they stuff the kids in them.

    My wife ALWAYS wants to put the vegetables in the compartment where the kid sits. My only real input in shopping is pushing the cart, any comments I make are quickly shot down, but I ALWAYS insist she bags ANYTHING that goes into the crap compartment of the shopping cart. I don't know about you, but I've seen what the kids the size that will fit in the little compartment do in their pants! It is not completely beyond the realm of chance that some of that product escapes into the holding area!

    The other problem I have is when the mom is pushing a kid in the basket that has been shaving for the last three years, and does not seem incapable of walking on his own, since he will sometimes stand up in the cart to shoot a basket with a box of crackers to an imaginary basket sixty feet away.

    Any opinions on shopping carts?

    I used to live in ignorant bliss concerning the crap compartment. Shopping will never be the same for me now.

    I thought maybe you pulled the sunflower to decorate a shopping cart.

    You just got to wonder how many cases of dysentery stem from the crap compartment every year? Honey do these tomatoes taste funny to you?

    Cute, but just imagine your next meal coming out of this shopping cart.

    You should probably wash your vegetables before you eat them anyway.

    Jeez TD.

    Now I have one more thing I've never thought about before to clog my mind every time I push a grocery cart.

    Thanks Buddy...

    Think about where most people sit when using the bed stand phone in a hotel room. Now think about where your head is when you sleep in that hotel room bed.

    Supposedly you don’t want to keep an uncovered toothbrush in the bathroom if you flush the toilet with the lid up...

    Re: Shopping carts.

    I try and bring in a shopping cart with me on my way in, whether I plan to use it or not.

    If possible, I try and get one of those carts designed for multiple kids. Usually they have a couple of extra plastic seats and may even have race car markings or something similar to keep the kids happy.

    I'll just leave it near the store entrance for the next parent who shows up with a gaggle of kids.

    I don't have any kids of my own, but I've seen what it can be like trying to get the shopping done on a fixed budget when your two year old is having a melt down.

    By making an effort to be just a little more thoughtful, a little bit kinder, a little less self absorbed, the world is a nicer place for everyone.

    At least it seems to work that way for me.

    But YES to those hygienic wipes... Lol
