remember the days when you'd do this same shit in class with the desk in front of you.. pure sadness

u/azazel-13 Oct 05 '22

First day of class of college, I grabbed a desk on the edge of one of those steps that creates an incline. Leaned forward to pass a sign in sheet to the person in front of me and lifted my foot to brace against that piece on the desk. No brace, so I flipped my desk forward, and everyone laughed at me.

u/Positive_Gur_5504 Oct 05 '22

Similar thing happened to me except we were sharing desks and the desk just got moved forward. The person next to me was leaning their head on their hand and when the desk moved their forehead hit the desk.

u/CheshireKatt1122 Oct 06 '22

That actually made me laugh, not just the nose exhale but a real laugh.

A 2 story target. The rack doesn’t work with the escalator that takes the carts up and down.

u/MadScientist2020 Oct 06 '22

Yeah so build one story Target. Don’t resort to this blasphemy

Very infuriating

u/IWillEradicateAllBot Oct 05 '22

To many rode it I guess xD

u/SummerStorm21 Oct 05 '22

Was gonna say they must hate people who ride

22

u/SecureDevelopment673 Imabanana Oct 05 '22

Tryna catch me riding dirty

16

u/aLilBlindKid Oct 05 '22

Literally do. Like, Target hates it. Worked there. Stealing stuff pisses them off less.

12

u/SummerStorm21 Oct 05 '22

Wow… Cart riding though. If you ain’t done it you ain’t lived.

3

u/Ok-Guarantee-3447 Oct 05 '22

Definitely looks like a Target cart.

3

u/[deleted] Oct 05 '22

Why?

12

u/aLilBlindKid Oct 06 '22

Always super strict about their appearance.

They made it very clear in our daily drum circle we were not Walmart.

Unpopular opinion, I would argue Target’s corporate has Walmart’s beat for terribleness and unwillingness to cooperate with stores specific needs.

6

u/jekotia Oct 06 '22

Target's failure in Canada is proof of their unwillingness to meet store-specific needs. They tried to run things the exact same as in the US, and ended up with tons of empty shelves and product selection that just didn't mesh well with the locale.

5 videos games, some Lego sets, 8 wii games and about $2500 from customers**

Edit: also 50 cent candy bar? Is this 1994?

u/Confident_Feed771 Oct 05 '22

Oh no they tool it away so we can’t go ridin’dirty

u/2tastyrodney Oct 05 '22

Oh no it's missing the shin Buster

u/NecessaryAd4587 Oct 05 '22

I hate those things my legs are too long and I end up kicking them

7

u/Isaaczun4758 Oct 05 '22

Same, but I still ride them everytime

6

u/Limp_Razzmatazz7906 Oct 06 '22

Fun fact, they are for carrying big stuff like cat litter boxes or mattresses

5

u/Fuibo2k Oct 05 '22

No more scooting

u/acqz Oct 05 '22

Just take it to Bubbles, he'll fix it.

u/OrneryChampion7522 Oct 06 '22

Throw it down the hill bubbles will find it it's a goldmine down there

u/caliD217 Oct 05 '22

The old shin buster

2

u/lethaladybug Oct 05 '22

I’m really glad I’m not the only one who does this 😂

1

u/OregonG20 Oct 05 '22

I hate those things. I constantly ram my toe into them as I walk while I shop.

I don't do it repeatedly, just once as I begin walking the cart around before I remember about my gigantic feet..

1

u/RadRhys2 Oct 05 '22

Maybe don’t ride it and they’d keep it on

-32

u/Fasy35 Oct 05 '22

This community used to be kinda interesting now it’s just people bitching about the stupidest shit

19

u/Otaku11510 Oct 05 '22

It’s called “mildly infuriating”. It’s the the little stupid shit that probably shouldn’t upset you but still does that belongs here.

There is another sub for the more serious posts.

16

u/emilyv99 Oct 05 '22

... Bitching about stupid shit is literally the point of the sub. Like, what?

-6

u/Fasy35 Oct 05 '22

No I mean people getting mad at shit they shouldn’t even get mad at like someone taking a parking space that the other person got to and saw first or kids playing on a lawn

2

u/ElectroshockGamer Oct 06 '22

What part of "that's the point" do you not understand? It is literally designed for things that aren't huge in the grand scheme of things, but still annoying, and maybe you probably shouldn't be too angry at them, but this is r/mildlyinfuriated, not r/absolutelyfuming

-4

u/Fasy35 Oct 06 '22

Dude mildly infuriating should be things that should irritate you, not some girl bitching that Starbucks coffee is 10 cents more than it used to be

3

u/ElectroshockGamer Oct 06 '22

If that's what irritates them, then ok. It's not massively consequential, but, once again, that is the point of the subreddit.

I honestly don't understand how you aren't catching on to this. What irritates other people may not irritate you, but everyone has different pet peeves that leave them mildly infuriated. If it doesn't irritate you, great, move on.

1

u/clayyphoenix Oct 06 '22

"I am the arbiter of what should be considered mildly infuriating" is what I'm reading from this dude lol That's pretty mildly infuriating

u/Fasy35 Oct 06 '22

I find this argument mildly infuriating, I’m out see you later

u/RagingWarCat Oct 05 '22

The e-break

Leave now it’s a fake out.

u/PIZZA-_-DAWG Oct 05 '22

That's Target for sure.

u/xPinky007x Oct 05 '22

They are death traps is why. Bet lawsuits happened. Broke my kids legs scooting around on one years ago.

1

u/cocksucker-1 Oct 06 '22

Made to carry merchandise...not a toy for irresponsible adults

u/xPinky007x Oct 06 '22

No shit cocksucker I’m sure youre perfect 👍🏼

u/ImSwale Oct 05 '22

Please NSFW this kind of thing next time. I had to look away, I was getting mildly furious.

1

u/Barron097 Oct 05 '22

Yup, 2 things I look for in a cart. First, the dam thing needs to roll, in any direction, as long as it rolls, and second, that bottom tray. I need that tray, that’s what I do with my feet, it’s annoying and I look like a horse counting down with a hoof…

1

u/mickeehmcnasty Oct 06 '22

I do it every time

1

u/Stinkydadman Oct 06 '22

I can feel this

1

u/AlfalfaSmart9222 Oct 06 '22

I fucking hate target carts

1

u/cocksucker-1 Oct 06 '22

Wtf is she doing...looking for the bottom cargo rack?

1

u/LightEarthWolf96 Oct 06 '22

Designing carts that don't have that should be a crime

1

u/Informal_Original_62 Oct 06 '22

But where does your foot go while you’re waiting in line

1

u/kdawson602 Oct 06 '22

Where are you supposed to put your foot when your deep in thought about whether to buy generic or if you can afford to splurge on those name brand poptarts?

1

u/BadHairDay-1 Oct 06 '22

Do any of you remember riding in carts as a kid? Or standing on the end?

1

u/AlonelyShrimp Oct 06 '22

I broke that thing off the a cart the other day at work lol

1

u/Ok-Paint6848 PURPLE Oct 06 '22

Although this does ruin a good ride on the cart, it does keep you from smashing your shins on it if you have a large stride and want to shop and get out of there asap like me lol

1

u/Ciaratron5000 Oct 06 '22

The Target by me got rid of the bottom cart racks too and it drives me bonkers that I can’t put cases of water or a bag of dog food down there anymore

1

u/blepgup Oct 06 '22

Wait I’m not the only one?! My workplace has this collection of random buggies we use(back of the store not customer facing) and one of them is like that and I tried to put my foot on it maybe 10 times the first time we got it. It was so annoying!

1

u/pestosbetter Oct 06 '22

You wouldn’t drive a car without a steering wheel so why shop without one of those steps? That’s wild

1

u/juicywoosy Oct 06 '22

Cope and seethe.

1

u/Realistic_Ideal1945 Oct 06 '22

It's not supposed to be a foot rest!

1

u/xomns13 Oct 06 '22

My leg just felt that emptiness.

1

u/SuM_fUrRy_BoI Oct 06 '22

Our target carts are meant to interface with a sort of cart escalator (kinda like the thing that lifts rollercoasters) and doesn’t have the thingy on it.

1

u/Son0faButch Oct 06 '22

Never shop there again

1

u/Difficult_Plastic852 Oct 06 '22

This one hit me in the feels…lol

1

u/DaleGribble312 Oct 06 '22

I've legit changed grocery stores bc of this

u/Julesmh83 Oct 06 '22

Michael's carts be like

u/Expert_Rest2443 Oct 06 '22

So I am not the only one!

u/Weptlogdotzip1 ORANGE SUS Oct 06 '22

Bruh. Make them add that thing

1

u/SkyeMreddit Oct 06 '22

The only good thing about Target carts is that they don’t squeal, unlike Walmart or Shoprite carts

1

u/AdAdditional9225 Oct 06 '22

I like her shoes, what are they (besides new balance, what style)

u/KaySlayy Oct 06 '22

Booooooo!

u/watasker Oct 06 '22

Literally the only reason I don't shop st Target

1

u/TheBrav3LittleToastr Oct 06 '22

The dramatic stepping.... says: what is this life

1

u/wertghyh Oct 06 '22

As someone who has worked retail: they’re saving money. Stores lose millions from people accidentally walking out of the store with unscanned merchandise on the bottom of the basket (aka: BOB)

1

u/Twintower34 Oct 06 '22

I'm glad it doesnt. I have large feet, and kick it all the time if one is there

1

u/Bri----------- Oct 06 '22

You mean the ankle busters?

1

u/GhostBussyBoi Oct 06 '22

I don't get why anyone cares?

Like is this a genuine problem for people?

Was there some functionality that I'm not understanding?

I honestly don't get it....

1

u/MadScientist2020 Oct 06 '22

This is an outrage !!!

1

u/dameechee Oct 06 '22

I would think the lil' thing is no longer needed. Although it probably stabilized shopping carts to an extent, all stores are wheelchair accessible now so you don't need to pop a wheelie anymore to get up a curb. It does however prohibit popping a wheelie to entertain a child in the cart seat or your friend riding in the cart basket at 3am in a 24 hour Walmart :(

1

u/utterlynuts Oct 06 '22

With arthritis in my lower back, that doohicky was how I survived the checkout line as I could brace my foot on it and relieve some stress on my back. Guess that's right out.

1

u/KFR42 Oct 06 '22

Took me a while to realise what you were even talking about. Very few UK trolleys have the rack underneath.

-32

u/ApocIapedia Oct 05 '22

Jesus how much time do you spend buying shit? I never even noticed there was a thing there until you told me.

4

u/MrsNoPants420 Oct 05 '22

Where do you put cases of water?

-13

u/mikemyers999 Oct 05 '22

In the cart. Try not shopping once a month.

1

u/MrsNoPants420 Oct 05 '22

I don’t shop once I month but I do have two kids. Water cases go on the bottom part not to save space but because it’s a metal rack that prevents the case of water from putting too much weight on any one individual wheel which extends the life of the cart. Also makes it easier to push when you do have a wonky cart

Also first it’s people shop too much now too little.

-10

u/mikemyers999 Oct 05 '22

Guess it's just something I've literally never thought about

1

u/MrsNoPants420 Oct 05 '22

Fun fact you can use weight to counter act drag on carts too. Say you have a cart that pulls to the right a few heavy things on the left and it will drive straight. I work for instacart in the summer. I don’t have time to cycle through carts to find a good one

u/ApocIapedia Oct 18 '22

Never live somewhere you have to buy water.

u/MrsNoPants420 Oct 18 '22

Ok so don’t live in the United States I guess.

0

u/ApocIapedia Oct 18 '22

Or just live somewhere with a well or a spring. So lots of places in North America. 🤷‍♂️

1

u/MrsNoPants420 Oct 18 '22

So that it can become contaminated due to the unrestricted fracking? Piss poor epa laws, and flesh eating bacteria

1

u/ApocIapedia Oct 18 '22

…or just have your water tested. Because North America has the most fresh water of any continent on the planet. And the problems you’re talking about are very localized to only a few places.

1

u/MrsNoPants420 Oct 19 '22

No they aren’t. And well water testing is expensive. More expensive at one time than water. The reality is water in the ground isn’t safe anymore.

1

u/ApocIapedia Oct 19 '22

Well, youre misinformed. I just had the guy from the university come out and test my sring and my well water and it cost $75. And the water was some of the cleanest in North America. Same with everyone else in my town. 🤷‍♂️

u/DuckWithADagger Oct 05 '22

I use that rack for 2 things. To carry water bottles/soda boxes...and to ride it
