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.


GET AWAY FROM MY CHILDREN!!!!!!

We should definitely ban shopping carts. That would limit people to as much as they could carry in one trip. Probably put Walmart out of business, but is that a bad thing?

Whatever happened to "whom?"  Doesn't anybody use "whom" anymore?

Kids have to learn about physics sooner or later.  Shopping carts make for excellent center of gravity experiments.
