However, with the change to Homever, their shopping cart policy changed. We are no longer allowed to leave the premises with a cart because the parking attendant dude stops us every time. I've managed to outwit him by mumbling random English phrases quickly a few times and running away, and one time I even gave him my watch as a deposit for the shopping cart. Now we just buy groceries in small batches at a time (getting down to the grocery section of Homever involves going underground two levels) to avoid using a cart.
Today we will be talking about shopping carts. In Korea, most shopping carts have seats for your little tikes to sit in. But some carts don't have the seat by the cart handle (that we all remember sitting in). What to do? Heck, just throw all your kids into the mix with the groceries! I've never seen so many children sitting in shopping carts before. They are either sleeping, reading, or doing their academy homework while mom shops. Even when there is a child seat, you will still find kids thrown into the cart--they can't run away if they are in there!
Here are some observations from a recent trip to Costco. Check this cart out...there's barely enough room in there for groceries--two full grown children take up a lot of room:
...look at this little guy, sleeping in the cart because he was up late studying English. I assume they're going to pile items on top of him?
Here's something for you octopus fans out there...let's see you try eating these while they are alive!
Do you have any shopping cart stories?
