Here’s something I’ve been rolling around in my head all day, and since you Home Eccers are such savvy people, I figured I’d ask y’all. Besides, I think it would make for an amusing discussion.
I went to the grocery store today. I came out, got in my car, turned on the car, then turned on the radio. I turned around to look behind me and I saw some little fluttery things at my back window. I looked closer and the person who had parked next to me had parked a full cart of groceries right behind my car. Now, I don’t drive a tall car, I drive a Honda Accord. Even so, I hardly saw the cart- it was parked directly behind my car.
So I sat and waited for the person to move the cart, and they didn’t. They had apparently bought two cartfuls of groceries and were unloading one cart and left the other cart behind my car. Finally, I got out and moved the cart out of the way myself. The guy had the nerve to glare at me when I did it. Sorry, dude, but don’t park a cart behind a car, duh!
While I was driving home, I got to thinking- I barely saw the cart as it was. If I had driven any taller of a vehicle, I doubt I would have seen his cart, as close as he had parked it to my car. If I had hit it, would I have been at fault for hitting the cart, or would it have been his fault for leaving his cart behind my car? I really don’t know. I lean toward his fault, but insurance-wise, I’m sure it probably would have been my fault.
So, I ask you, Home Eccers, whose fault was it?
