The other night, the wife & I were on a grocery gathering trip to the new Giant Eagle Market District in Robinson, which has an awesomely clean & new interior, helpful friendly employees, and really nice prices. (I got a Giant Eagle brand ham for just 99¢/lb.!) That’s the inside of the store.
On the outside of the store… the crosswalks are clearly marked (although wholly ignored by the Yinzers), there are nice sidewalks in between rows of the parked cars so you don’t have to walk down the driving lane (but people do anyway), and there are many many places to return your shopping carts. This is the one that prompted me to write. I took the following photo with my cell phone…
ABANDON THY BUGGIES, ALL YE WHO EXIT!
What is wrong with you, people? Is it that hard to walk the cart back up the the front of the store, or to the nearest cart return? Is this driven by arrogance or laziness? Are you too good to take the cart back up? Too important? Your time to valuable? Are you too lazy?
I get that the Market District employees should also be trolling the lot looking for these things to clean up… but if the Yinzers had any common decency, this wouldn’t happen in the first place. Shame on you, this is how the pace will start its eventual slide donwhill until it’s just another crappy grocery store with employees who don’t care and customers that look like they rolled in some dirt before getting up & going inside. Take some pride in your city and the businesses in it, you dumb Yinzers.
This is why you can’t have nice things.
