How does one get promoted to Customer Service? That's where all hope in other people goes to die. But congrats still - hope you'll have plenty of happy customers

unless op owns a smartcar I doubt there is any damage. I hit carts all the time when they're in spaces sometimes at 25mph. a bump at less then 5mph may hurt the carts feelings but that's about it.

My thoughts exactly...you're ALWAYS supposed to check your blind spot. When I first started driving, I almost sideswiped a couple of people while changing lanes, and I now check my spot religiously. Suppose that had been a child in your blind spot in the parking lot? Congrats on being promoted, but - and I rarely vote this - but YDI. Learn from this experience, rather than being all butthurt someone called you an idiot in what could be a very valuable - and lifesaving - life lesson. Who knows, the next time you fail to check your blind spot, it could be much more disastrous...

Mostly at 24, but a little at 6- We don't know what OP drives, if it's a car, then no excuse, if it's a truck or SUV then it's very easy to not see a cart behind your vehicle when it's lower than the tailgate or back hatch. So don't act like the OP is an oblivious idiot if you don't know.

It is just ironic that the customer called her an idiot for doing something stupid, which it was, when she herself just did a very stupid and lazy thing herself. Not putting the cart in one of the trolleys or taking them back is just asking for trouble. You are basically setting someone up to get hurt because of your laziness. There is a reason stores have a sign out in the parking lot that they are not responsible for damage to cars due to carts. Everyone has to pitch in and not be dumb here.

26 if a person who drives a truck or suv uses that as an excuse to hit things, they shouldn't be allowed to drive them. "Sorry I backed into your kid and killed him, I'm driving a truck!" Use your backup camera or drive more carefully. The type of vehicle is no excuse.

Depending on the vehicle OP drives, he may have shoulder checked and still been unable to see a specific spot. I shoulder check in my car, but there is one spot where I can see nothing! Little circle mirrors on the corners on your regular mirrors will help tremendously if this is the problem, OP.

Not everyone can afford backup cameras and even my Cadillac has blind spots. I just check what I can and back up very slowly so if there is a kid then they can move out of the way of my vehicle.

58, If the thing (be it cart or something's else) is close to the SUV and lower (or even behind and below the back window) there is no way to see it. Don't forget that many people cannot afford the back camera option in their vehicles and a lot of older models don't even carry them. Yes people should probably do a walk around of the vehicle, but the majority of people don't.

I work in customer service and there will always be those people who feel they should take out there bad day on you, but kill them with kindness. Generally if you can make someone laugh it will not be a bad conversation for either of you. And lastly try to be positive it spreads and will help you through your days!
