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?
