    I was at Harris Teeter on Saturday afternoon on the dairy aisle. A woman completely walked away from her cart (leaving her purse in the kiddie seat) and went all the way around the corner of the aisle. I just shook my head. I don't say anything anymore because once at Walmart I tried to remind a woman her purse was in her cart when she was walking away and she literally bit my head off.

    I still see lots of ladies left their purses unattended on their shopping carts while grocery shopping.
