While I know I shouldn’t take pleasure in others’ misfortune, there was something delicious in enjoying the difficulty the young man was experiencing when trying to return a stray shopping cart back into the grocery store parking lot.
He fought bravely against the perimeter electronic wheel lock mechanism that’s supposed to keep the carts from straying in the first place.
I give him credit for his tenacity.
He kept trying to return the cart from whence it came.
And it kept stopping on him. Over. And over. And over.
And I laughed, inside. Loud. Uproarious. Exuberant.
And almost felt guilty for it.
