SLPT: Just park right by the entrance, leave your hazards on, and run inside like it’s an emergency. Apparently this is the hot new trend at my local Walmart.

I’m always afraid to park beside the cart return stalls. I don’t trust people not to hit my car with the cart

Never park your car near the cart return because a lot of people just dump the cart near there and they eventually end up rolling into cars.

And if you can, always part UPHILL from the cart return. That way if someone half-heartedly returned their cart, and it starts to roll out of place, your car is already uphill, so it won’t get hit.
