When I came back out, I saw a shopping cart right next to my car. I was worried at first she'd gotten run in to, but it was ok. My first thought was, "who sees an Elise and thinks, 'yes, a foot from this car is a good place for a shopping cart'?!" But I could have been totally oblivious to it when I parked. Either way, put your carts in the stalls, people!
When I first got mine, I flew out to it and drove it home. Once during the trip we had to stop at walmart, and I parked out as far as I could but at this particular time the lot was reasonably full front to back. I parked in a single space with no cars immediately on any side. After I'd run in, me and my passenger were sitting in the car looking through the bags/getting ready to leave.
Then we see this woman with an empty shopping cart walking away from the store/toward us. At first I thought she was going to one of the cars near us, but eventually she got close enough it was clear she was coming AT us. My passenger waved, and we expected some kind of recognition, but she's still coming right at us.
When she got about a 1.5 cart lengths away I opened the door and got out. She snapped out of whatever gaze she was in, looked at me, stopped, then turned around and left the cart right where it was.
What happened? Was she so near sighted she couldn't see anything beyond ten feet in front of her? Was she in such a trance a movement was required to snap her out of her t-rex vision? Malicious walmart shopper who was going to push the cart INTO the car?
That was the last time I parked it in a lot that had shopping carts.
