the "pee cart" strikes back

Guess what happened at Target today?

Well, if you read my post from a few weeks ago, you'll remember that I noticed half-way through my trip that my cart reeked of pee.  And no, it was not from my children.  And no, there were no puddles warning me of the odorous hazard lurking in the cart.  And yes, I did alert the proper authorities and they did whisk away the cart where I assume they sprayed it down.

But I must've gotten the same cart again today, because shortly into our journey, I smelled it again.  And it was definitely coming from the cart.  I'm guessing the odor must've soaked into the plastic and they can't get it out and it's probably pretty pricey to replace those ginormous "kid-carts."

So, let this serve as a warning to those of you who shop at my Target (*ahem* Amy).  Before strapping your children into a cart (the ones with the big area in front for 2 kids to face each other), make sure you sniff it out thoroughly.

I just have to say WOW KATIE!! Maybe they saw you walking to the doors and put the cart there just for you to use since they knew you enjoyed so much last time you were there ;)

Seriously, a second time?! That just isn't right. Maybe it's time to retire that cart, Target...

Hmmmm....also this super powerful smelling of yours has got me thinking something is going on....:)

And girl, you KNOW it's going to 90% off tomorrow, right? Well, I'm guessing it is. One of the best days of the year!

Oh my...that is very disturbing. I will be certain to sniff my carts prior to selecting them now! :)

So...I don't use those carts since I only have one kiddo, but I just had to tell you that every time I walk past one now at Target I've tried to sniff it on the way by :)
