Cart Fairy
updated: Jan 10, 2014, 2:12 PM

By ABomb

I just wanted to give a shout out to the woman who put my cart back at the Goleta Trader Joe's when my toddler was having a meltdown in the parking lot. It had been a VERY long day and a tedious trip to TJ's and my daughter decided to completely lose it in the middle of the parking lot, at night, with tons of cars going every which way and one anxious person waiting for me to vacate my spot. Something about dropping her stickers or not dropping her stickers or I don't even know what, but she was absolutely inconsolable. Putting my cart away is one simple thing I always try to do, something that makes me feel like at least I'm doing something right in the world, but at that moment it seemed like a daunting task. A woman getting in to the car next me saw what was happening and asked me if I wanted her to put my cart back. She said she had kids herself and she understood. What a godsend! It was a small thing but it really meant a lot to me. So wherever you are, TJ's cart fairy, thank you!!
