Shopping goes down to the wire

Shopping carts turn into bumper wire on wheels, turning in and out of aisles looking like a wire-wheeled monster out of control

After leaving the peaceful sanctuary and safety of my home for my weekly travel to the fair city of Penticton, this is when it happened.

Perhaps it’s the rush to shop at this Yuletide time of year — in the big-box stores, where traffic is heavy.

Shopping carts turn into bumper wire on wheels, turning in and out of aisles looking like a wire-wheeled monster out of control.

I guess traffic lights or flag people directing left and right lanes won’t work. So how about ooga horns that let the unsuspecting, head-down, bent-over shopper get the hell out of the way before he or she becomes part of an uncontrolled cluster of a wire and wheel concussion maker?
