Cart Complications: When another shopper gets in the way

by epi on January 17, 2012

Q: At times in the supermarket, a grocery cart is blocking the aisle and its owner is usually oblivious.  In situations like this, can I move it out of my way?

A: If there’s no one in sight, gently push the cart aside enough to allow others to get by.  If the cart’s owner is contemplating the cereal selection, offer a polite, “Excuse me, do you mind if I move your cart?”  In all likelihood they will take the cue and move it themselves.
