FrancoFile: I have a burning hatred for the dumbass parents who let their kids hang on the side of the shopping cart like it's a firetruck. When I worked at Trader Joe's, not a week went by that I didn't have to grab one of those just as it was about to tip over and splatter a kid on the cement floor.I had one case of a 5-year old crouched in the cart, her 7-year old sister hanging on the side, and I'm checking them out. The cart starts to tip while my hands are full of groceries, and I did a 2-finger save by grabbing the wire frame of the cart and yanking it up. The 7-year-old would have been crushed between the cart and a shelving unit, and her freaked out sister would probably have stepped on her head. Congrats, parents, you almost broke your kid's neck. And I appreciate you not thanking me for saving your kid, too.
