When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
Most of the time. It depends where I can find a parking slot. I always try to park directly next to the cart return so I will not have to leave my kids in the car by themselves to return the cart too far away. If I can't, I always get paranoid that someone is watching me and will attempt to kidnap my kids if I leave them alone while I return the cart (and yes, I always lock the door, but I am still paranoid). I have on occasion, left a cart, but I always try to leave it where it does not 'take' a parking spot.
