I'm past my drop dead date but figured one more trip was worth the effort. Wanted gardening supplies. It hit me as I entered that I didn't actually 'need' handles on the cart,.....I could grab in from the basket and walk alongside, so that's what I did. Ended up loading about fifty pounds in the cart and never did touch anywhere near the handle. Pretty damn smug, I almost crashed into another guy on my way to the checkout. He was walking in alongside his cart with his fingers laced into the side of the basket. Just smiled at him and said "smarter than the average bear".
Exit greeter was the same cute little chick Cher. Tried to talk her up and distract her with my receipt but I don't think they're doing that anymore.
