At one of the Ralphs I go to there’s a moving sidewalk down to the parking lot. It’s intended to grip onto shopping carts so that you don’t go barreling down into people or just losing control of your cart.

Some people like to stand on this thing even when they don’t have a cart. When they’re holding maybe one bag. I was behind two of these people, and I could MAYBE understan if they were together and hanging out, but they were clearly not together, just waiting for moving sidewalk to take them down to the parking lot where the cruel world would force them to use their own two legs.

Needless to say, I excused my way past them and delighted in how gravity did most of the work for me walking down the incline.
