While the grocery store experience should always be pleasant — after all, the result is that you get food — there are some things “certain people" do that can take away some of that pleasure. These 10 rules of grocery shopping are written just for them.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who return carts to the cart corral and a-holes.
Leaving a cart to find its own way home often results in the cart camping out in a parking spot someone will inevitably pull halfway into before realizing the cart is there and angrily backing out, pissing off people behind them.
The carts have a home. Help them find their home.
You do not have super-human pedestrian powers that override people in their cars trying to get past or around you.
Pick a side — any side — and no one gets hurt.
If you’re barreling down the middle or the wrong side like a linebacker and clip my cart, I am not above throwing a shoulder.
Also, try to refrain from doing a 180 halfway down a jam-packed aisle only to amble along as if you’re taking in the sights at the Louvre. It’s soup. Not the Sistine Chapel.

The sign says 15 items or less. It does not say, “Everything you can stick in the small-ass cart you chose instead of regular cart.”
That does not refer to the number of item types, but the actual item count. For example, those 75 cans of soup that took you 15 minutes to pick out does not count as a single item.
You are not a special snowflake. If everybody ignored this rule, it would just be a regular line.
Really? Come on now, people.
