That's what I said to my cashier this morning at Target.
"Did you say pee?" he asked suspiciously.
"Yes," I replied. "It reeks of pee and I promise you that it is not from my children. I have checked them several times throughout our shopping trip, trying to figure out why I kept smelling pee, and they have no pee smell on them. It's just the cart."
I failed to mention that I also kept wondering if I had peed my pants too. I was pretty sure I would've noticed that, but it was such a strong smell that it really seemed like it had to be fresh pee.
I wasn't sure how to handle this situation. Should I alert someone to the fact that the cart has obviously been peed on, or do I just keep quiet and pass it on to the next unsuspecting customer? I almost did the latter, but as I was signing for my purchase, I decided to blurt it out.
I was quite amused by the reaction it caused. Within 10 seconds I had 2 other Target employees at my side, smelling the cart while I assured them too that it was definitely not me or my children. They, of course, smelled the strong urine odor as well and whisked the cart away, hopefully to be thoroughly disinfected.
Yup, that's all I've got. My cart smelled like pee and I decided to tell you about it, although I'm not completely sure why. I really hope you find something better to do with the rest of your afternoon. ;) I'm off to wrap presents while little ones rest.
