So, the other day, I was in a bit of a YouTube rabbit hole when I stumbled upon a channel called the “Cart Narcs.” Intrigued, I decided to dive in and let me tell you… I am so glad I did.
One of my favorite quotes I’ve ever heard is “There are two types of people in the world, those who return the shopping cart, and those who don’t.” And nothing can be more true. I mean name something worse than not being able to park because some asshole left their shopping cart in your open space?
Basically, this guy (the “Cart Narc”) travels to supermarket parking lots across the country and *very politely* confronts those assholes who don’t return their shopping carts. Very often, the people don’t like being confronted and it absolutely blows up in their face. It’s just a pure, raw exposure of assholes called out for being assholes, and I can’t get enough.
Just look at some of these jackasses who are sooooo busy in life they can’t be bothered to return their friggin shopping cart.
More often than not, Cart Narc will walk over and ask the offender to bring their cart back (instead of leaving it behind someone else’s car, or in the middle of the street) and then they’ll usually be told to “F-off.” THEN, the Cart Narc throws a bumper magnet on the offender’s car that says something like “I don’t put my carts back.” and that’s when things get HEATED and a very minor interaction often turns into SO MUCH MORE.
From a very young age, I was raised to ALWAYS return the cart. I mean it’s just basic human decency. And now, the fact that there’s someone calling out these asshats for not doing that, just gives me pure joy.
And the sucky thing is, more often than not, they just drive away pissed and don’t end up returning their carts. At the end of the day, be a good person… return your damn carts.
