NVGR: Shopping Etiquette

I work at my local Target store as a cart attendant. It's a menial job involving bringing shopping carts into the store from the parking lot, cleaning restrooms, changing trash, helping 'guests' to their cars with large heavy items, and generally being the store gofer. I might make it sound bad, but at least I get to spend time out in the open air and a variety of tasks keeps me from getting bored.

With that out of the way, I would like to offer some general tips on how not to be a horrible person when you're shopping. Because apparently there's some confusion among the general public.

First of all, if you pick an item off a shelf and later decide you don't want it, do not put it on another shelf. Either put it back where you got it, or hand it to the cashier when you get to the registers and tell them you decided against getting it.

When you take an item of clothing off of a rack, look at it, and decide against it, the correct thing to do is to put it back. Do not just drop it on the floor. Do not toss it behind your back. Do not throw it into another section of the store.

Stop signs still count, even when they're in a parking lot. No, you are not above the law just because you really really need to buy a lawn chair and the store is about to close.

When you've loaded up your car, do not drive away and leave your shopping cart in the middle of the road, or a parking space. Doing so inconveniences everyone else and makes you an asshole.

Shopping carts are not your personal trash can. Do not leave empty beer bottles, dirty diapers, half-drunk ICEE cups, child car seat boxes, boxes of old decrepit baseballs, religious pamphlets, hubcaps, car floor mats, used hypodermic needles, used condoms, used tampons, barf bags, dirty underwear, old tires, or any kind of dead animal in a shopping cart.

When using the restroom, poop goes in the toilet. Some inappropriate locations to defecate include the floor, the sink, the mirror, the urinal, the toilet paper dispenser, or the outside of the toilet. For you women out there, toilet paper goes in the toilet. The floor is not the correct place for toilet paper. If you for any reason make a mess in the restroom, just tell the staff that there's a mess. You don't even need to tell them you did it!

I hope that clears some things up. Yes, I know it doesn't have much to do with gaming, hence the off-topic tag. I hope it's not too off-topic. If it is, please say so, and I'll hide it. (I actually did look at the FAQ and didn't really see anything about posting non-gaming related blogs)
