"I Don't Want to Work That Hard..."

(Metaphor of pulling carts)

In my job in retail, I spend the bulk of my time with shopping carts, and the electric scooters that are a convenience, not an entitlement.

People reach to grab a cart - at times, it takes more than a little pull to get it to release from it's line - you know.

Sometimes, they grab the front cart clear across the rows, before looking to me for help.

I walk over (amazed at how quickly their anger rises), demonstrate how to lift the drop-piece from the cart behind, and pull. They then point out, they "don't work with them all day, how would THEY know this". I just shake my head, as they walk away.

Some, yell at me, because they "don't want to work that hard", or it's my "job to pull them out for them", etc.

Apparently, they're just coming to my store to relax, and I have somehow ruined their day. Well...if that's all it takes?

Thank you, have a good day, and be safe... #2021LATE ****** #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes
