A day of shopping

To the engineer who made the shopping carts at Colruyt (Kessel-Lo):

DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE

FYI: Shopping carts in Belgium are usually used in a forward pushing way, and not pulling it.
As such, you NEED to place the non-turning wheels in the correct position (at the rear) or even better, don’t have any at all!
Consequence of this great piece of engineering is everyone constantly cursing and ramming into people and store racks because the carts are mostly uncontrollable.

To the other shoppers: please have some common sense about where to place your cart when you’re not taking it along, or where to stand when letting someone pass.
To the store owners: don’t put sh*t like cardboard boxes and other stuff in the middle of the hallways if you know your store is overcrowded already. Also, redesign it so you actually have a clear way to the checkout instead of filling up 2/3 of the store with customers waiting in line.
To the motherfsckers cutting in line without any shame (nonsurprisingly most are 60+): I hope you die. Today.

(Yes, this was my last time ever entering that store).

This may sound harsh but I got really ticked off trying not to run away screaming today.

    Unfortunately these carts are at every Colruyt – I have no idea who designed them, but he should be shot. Or driven over by his own carts.

    Agree!
