The Shopping Cart Theory. Do You Return Your Cart?
Do you return your shopping cart? Whether you say "yes" or "no," it says a lot about the kind of human being you are.
There is a thing called the "Shopping Cart Theory," and man is this heavy...and I believe, pretty damn spot on. Here is the first line of the "Shopping Cart Theory"
"The shopping cart is the ultimate litmus test for whether a person is capable of self-governing."
Here is the deep question that this poses...
"Do you accept your duty to return the cart, even though you gain nothing?"
Now this isn't a brag or some chest pounding response, but I always do. Also if there is someone emptying a cart into their vehicle near by, I will offer to take theirs as well. It's simply the right thing to do. What if a small gesture, could improve another's day for a variety of reasons.
Here is the entire breakdown of the "Shopping Cart Theory." I read this through like five or six times in a row, and it just makes all the sense in the world. You gain nothing, but it just makes sense. There is no punishment for NOT returning your cart. Does that lack of responsibility and "law and order" make you say screw it, I'll leave my cart here?
In the comment section of this tweet, one person goes as far as saying "it's unfair to divide society into these two groups." Sounds about right, Karen.
So which are you?
