Cart Pusher Hell: Custy Leaves Behind Unusual Item in Shopping Cart



From creatingKing113, Tales From Retail:

So I work up front at my local grocery store. Our two main jobs are bagging and getting carts so I was on cart duty. I've cleaned out the corals pretty well and it was dying down so I go to get the carts inevitably strewn around the parking lot.

Now of course you're always going to get lost items once in a while. We just bring them in and drop them off at customer service. So as I'm heading up to one cart and see something inside I just think "Oh hey, someone lost something."

But as I get closer I realize that it's definitely not a bag or backpack per usual. No, in the cart was an, I'd say 2x1.5 ft painting of some little girls from the 20's-30's fully framed and everything. Picture what day your grandmother would have hanging in her home.

Anyways I'm not sure what to do with this thing since it's not the usual type of item we find, so I head in just to confirm with the front end manager,

"Um there's a fully framed painting in a cart out there. I wasn't sure if you wanted me to leave it or bring it in..."

"Sure bring it in."

So I walk back out, enter the store with this big painting under my arm, and we have a few laughs. We decided to just treat it like a lost item and I bring it to customer service. Assistants reaction was priceless when I showed her. No one has claimed it yet and I don't know what happened to it after that day. Maybe one of the managers took it home


What is the strangest thing you've ever found in a cart that a custy left behind? Share with RHU!







for me the strangest was a car seat. not a baby's car seat, this was a seat that had been removed from an actual car and left in a cart.

But my co-worker has the best one. He found a bran new laptop and a blue-tooth speaker. The stuff had to be worth at least a grand. My bullseye location shares a building with a Best Buy so he naturally assumed the items (which did not have bags) were from Best Buy- he returned them to best buy's lost and found. Cut to 4 hours later (around 11pm) a man comes in asking our customer service desk if someone turned in a laptop and a speaker.

my co-worker is paged and he explained that he gave them to best buy and unfortunately best buy closed at 10.

The guy came back the next day and got his items. But could you imagine if someone other then my co-worker had came across the contents of that cart?


I was at Costco the other day and found a garage door opener. Hope the person who lost has a spare. Or a manual setting on their garage door.
