Neither! It probably WAS the shopping cart…
…until the woman changed a poopy diaper in it and infected the entire thing with fecal matter.
And her car is right next to her! Why couldn’t she use the seat in her car?! Now she infected not just the one cart, but anyone who touched that cart for days afterwards, as well as all the other carts it came in contact with AND all the people and food that touched those, too!
I bet none of you are even parents. She’s got her kid on a towel/blanket/something. And when you’ve got an emergency, you’ve got an emergency.
Some of these posts are funny, and just too far out, but this one is borderline cruel to the mother and child. When you’ve gotta change a diaper, you’ve got to. Don’t poke fun at her until you actually have to be the one to do it.
P.S. I HIGHLY doubt it was the dirty diaper that made these carts disgusting in the first place….remember, not every person washes their hands after going to the bathroom….
There’s nothing wrong here…Walmart bathrooms are disgusting, I refuse to sit on the seats let alone lay my child down on their tables. Also, to the person freaking out about “poop” getting on the cart and infecting people, get real; The child is laying on a blanket or possibly a coat? Doesn’t matter because it’s not even touching the cart. Now if she leaves the diaper in the cart or decided to wipe shit all over it prior to leaving then I’d say your concern is valid.
OMG I had no idea parents would do something like that in a shopping cart — something that other people are going to use to put their food purchases in. Geesh, some people just do not think things through. No wonder there is so much food-borne illness anymore.
Jimmy: How is she going to move the cart when she’s done, by telekinesis? If you think laying a coat out guarantees a sanitary situation, dream on. Would you likewise say it’s okay for your dinner guests to poop on your table because you have a tablecloth on it?
True as mothers we have to do what we have to do. However, I usually change the baby IN THE CAR before I put the groceries in. I feel my child is more important than my bagged groceries. Well at least she layed a blanket down before changing him in the cart.
