Stupid Dad Alert
I was in the Costco parking lot today walking back to my car and this family was also walking and the dad was pushing the cart with a little guy in the cart seat and then he told two other kids to hold on to the cart, one on the front, one on the side. Then he runs and down the aisle (outside in the parking lot) and him and the kids are speeding along in the cart.
How stupid can you get racing around with three small kids on an unstable grocery cart in the busiest parking lot in town! Busy parking lots, mixed with discount prices equals crazy shoppers that forget how to drive! They are so anxious to find a parking spot close the the door they are racing around trying to beat other cars to the spots, or they are so anxious to get the hell outta there that they are trying to spend out of their parking space. I see near misses in parking lots all the time because people aren't' paying attention or other cars are driving way too fast for a parking lot. When I back out I try to go slow so I don't ram another car but I'm not expecting a shopping cart to fly by with three kids and an adult attached to it, or when I turn the corner I don't want to be facing that head on either!
Thankfully there were no near misses with them.
