Did the employee actually run you down, or did they approach you at your car? I'm just curious.
On a seperate note, how old is your child that you are comfortable leaving him/her in the car as you stroll the cart back to the store? I have cousins that are 5, and I don't leave them alone in the car to take the cart back to the store, far too many things can go wrong. Which leads me to another point, how long does it take you to put your purchases in the car? The longer you are in the parking lot, preoccupied with loading the more are risk you are for mugging, etc. I always rearrange my bags inside the store, tying some shut if need be, load quickly as I possibly can, and get on my way.I am not a paranoid freak, but that is the times we live in. Where I live parking lot muggings are becoming more and more common, broad daylight, good neighborhood, doesn't matter. The "better" stores in "better" neighborhoods are where the theives are hitting. If I were shopping alone with a small child, I'd gladly accept a walk to my car and assistance, just for the safety of it, not to mention the convience of not leaving kiddo unattended in the car while returning a cart.
