today we got up early and drove to guadalupe. it took us over an hour to get up there and get settled but it was well worth the wait. it’s funny how you live in a place all your life but never go outside your bubble. we went outside the bubble today. oso flaco and the dune center. i highly recommend it. that is if you live near sb. or on the central coast for that matter. it’s a little hidden treasure.
highlights: lots of sand in the shoes, chased by a pack of raccoons, kenzie got her first mouthful of sand, maddie held a sandcrab, we saw a seal/sea lion and we stopped at danish days in solvang on the way home.
question of the day: do you put your grocery cart back where it belongs? or do you leave it near your car?
i always put it back. i truly dislike it when people leave their carts by cars. it gets in the way of people trying to park in that space or someone pushes it into your car.
love the picture. would love to have a print of this to frame. thanks in advance.
Ditto Mom’s reply. People are so lazy! Classic picture.I would like a copy for myself.
Always put the cart back! What I hate is when people leave the cart in a parking place that’s within 10 feet of the cart “thingy.”
Yes, “thingy” is the official word.
i don’t leave it by my car. that would be lazy. what i usually do is find a parking spot about 10 feet of the cart thingy and put it there.
I usually have the grocery cart that is a car and cart in one. It doesn’t fit in the thingy because it is too big. I then walk it back to the inside of the store where it came from. Do I get extra kudos for doing that?
i put it back . . ..b/c there is a chance that i’d be with mom and if i left it in the parking spot, i’d have to get out of the car and move it . . . . . . . .
petey, always glad to be your conscience. love ya!
I put it back last night when we finished shopping at the Vons super store in Goleta. I have a huge scratch on the side of my truck from a lazy person who left a cart resting against my truck while I was shopping…
Depends if the kids are strapped into carseats, and how far my parking spot is from the return thingy. I think my kids and their safety is more important than returning the cart, so I try to head it in the general direction. If my intuition says it ain’t worth it, I stash it somewhere close to the car. Sorry.
