Shopping Cart License

So, today, I went to the supermarket to stock up on spicy brown mustard because I was running low. I needed a few other things too, so I grabbed a cart and went into the store. The store was not very busy and I was breezing through the aisles when I encountered a slight traffic jam. There was a woman who parked her cart right smack in the middle of the aisle and was looking for an item on the shelf. As I approached her, I said, excuse me, expecting her to move her cart to let me pass. She ignored me and thinking she didn't hear me I said, excuse me a second time. Again, no response, so I repeated the phrase excuse me three more times before she finally turned around and said, oh, I'm sorry and she moved her cart. I moved past her and thought, well, maybe she can't hear very well or at all.

I continued shopping and three aisles over I encounter a man blocking the aisle doing the exact same thing, looking for an item on the shelf. Again I say, excuse me and he ignores me too. After two more excuse me's I try to squeeze past him and he then turns around and bumps into my cart. He then says excuse me to me. I say, that's okay and continue on. There were no more incidents or accidents and, you'll be glad to know, I checked out without any problems also.

As I'm leaving the store I got to thinking, maybe people should have to take a test and have a license to push a shopping cart in a supermarket. It obvious some people either don't know or ignore the unwritten rules of the supermarket cart.

I.e. Parking your cart in the middle of the aisle or ramming the heels of the person in front of you, pushing an unsafe cart with a broken wheel etc. They could have a guy that issues tickets for violations and suspend the license of violators for too many infractions. They would have to use one of them little baskets to put their stuff in until their license suspension was up.

What do yooz guys think, should there be a shopping cart license? Keep in mind, this idea is in the early stages and I'm open to suggestion.

Yes! That's the idea! We need order in the aisles. Without order, we have anarchy!

After loading vehicle in parking lot: Any shopper failing to secure a cart in an appropriate cart parking area shall be subject to 24 hours in a stock. Outdated tomatoes will be provided in convenient spots by the market to facilitate the meting out of justice by other shoppers.

Speaking of Walmart: Any female weighing in excess of 150 lbs shall not shop in yoga pants. Violation of this section shall be punishable by requiring mandatory attendance at a gym for a period of no less than 1 year, or until such time as the wearing of yoga pants is within the regulations.

Similarly: Any male caught shopping in short shorts shall immediately surrender his Man Card, and be punished by requiring mandatory attendance at a gym working out with females weighing in excess of 150 lbs, for a period of time no less than 1 year, or until such time as necessary to render him sufficiently embarrassed.
