Cart Pushers

I like to people watch. Have done it a long time.
I have a friend who lives in France now.
She and I would go get coffee while our
husbands went to have beers... and we would
watch the people. Mostly drunks who came
out of the bar and into the restaurants.

Now I do it while waiting. Waiting in line
or whatever. At the grocery store I notice
that there are different kinds of cart pushers.

Most teens are NASCAR type pushers. Men
are determine cart pushers or embarrassed
cart pushers. They are the ones who walk along
the side of the cart, with their hand on the middle
of the cart.. like they are taking it because they
need it, but not really want to be seen with it.

Little kids push with not a care in the world.
And proud because they get to do it. But they
aren't very good at it as they run over what ever
is nearby.

Women are the type who push them with drudgery.
Especially if they have kids with them. Usually it is
full, and I don't know if it is the weight of the cart or
of life, or life with the kids, that makes them push
slowly, and forcible.

I only push one when I am alone. As the King
prefers to push the cart. I am go in and get the
items and get out. So to have to push the cart,
is too bulky to get up and down the aisles. So
I am fine with getting the item, go to the cart and
dump it in, and get the next item.

Sounds like a future quiz in some magazine: "What kind of cart-pusher are YOU?" I like it. I'm a "let's skip the cart and see how much we can awkwardly carry in our arms" - good blog. :)
