KMPH Special Assignment: Wayward Shopping Carts

Posted: Updated:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Some of us are guilty of doing it - leaving our shopping cart in the middle of the parking lot or in a parking spot instead of putting the cart back in the cart corral.

It may seem harmless, but it can end up costing you.

In fact, one local man says he makes a living fixing the damage caused by those left-behind carts.

We busted people in the act of leaving their shopping carts in the middle of the parking lot, and learned why some people do it.

We also spoke with managers at several stores, who say it's part of their workers' jobs to go and collect the shopping carts in the parking lot every so often.

But one grocery store employee we spoke with says they just don't want to say anything that could drive away customers.

They say if you ask the employees you'll get a much different story.
