This weeks question is:
Do you call the store carts Shopping Carts or Buggies?  Do return them to the corals in the store parking lots?

We call them Shopping Carts here.  As for returning them to the corals, it depends on the day and situation.

We call them buggies here, but I try to do shopping cart if I'm typing something on here so no one will pick on me! :) I try my best to return them...I won't say that I've ALWAYS returned them.

we call 'em shopping carts and we always return them to the corals as here in Germany we put 1 euro or 50 cents to take them out, plus this is how it's done in here you don't want to draw attention by being the rude one:P
Aloha and here's mine!

Carts - I'm a Boston girl. I had NO clue what they were talking about when I went to school in Oklahoma and everyone called the buggies! LOL! OH! And my groceries are in bags...not sacks...I thought that was weird down there, too! And yes, I do return them to the corals.

shopping carts for sure!

I'm a "buggy" girl myself, but only because I'm too lazy to go that extra sylable and say "shopping cart". And yes, I always return the cart to the coral. What else would you do with it? Hmm...

blueviolet said...

Those are shopping carts, to be certain. I always put them back, always!!!!

Buggies, when I worked the boys who brought in the buggies from the parking lot were called buggie boys.

Around here the names are pretty interchangeable though.

Buggies? Too funny.
I park next to the corrals to make my life a ton easier.

Have a great Friday!

I have NEVER heard of them being called anything but shopping carts. But buggies are kinda cool:O)
I USE to always return them. Well maybe not Always. But after having babies I don't always do it. I just feel safer putting my girls in the car and staying by them.

I've never heard of buggies either! I put them back in the corrals almost always.

I call them shopping carts and always return them even if someone is waiting for my parking stall. :-)

Big Mama Cass said...

I call them shopping carts most times but sometimes buggies. And I ALWAYS return them to the corals. ALWAYS. Major pet peeve of mine. :)

Shopping carts and we always return them to the corals.

We call them carts, I've never heard them called buggies - interesting!

We ALWAYS return. I leave Emi in the cart while I am loading the stuff into the car and then she and I go together to return the cart. I want her to see us doing the right thing. We talk about what we are doing too, so she understands. It must be working as just last week she pointed out the window (car) and said "uh-oh mama, no cart!" Sure enough, someone had left their cart in the parking lot.

Cheers,
Kiy

I'm still weeding through my Google Reader!

I call the carts "shopping carts." And I always return them to the corals. I don't want my cart to get hit by a cart, so I figure I can help out the next person by returning the cart to where it belongs.
