Hate getting the dw on a grocery cart! I tried explaining to the head cart guy (you know, the one pushing the stack of carts back into the store) that he really needs to look at the caster and the ball joints and what kinda rubber is on those front wheels, because death wobble is a serious thing.
Stopped me dead in my tracks once in the store in a very awkward spot, right by the feminine products......coulda been bad if I didn't get that cart back under control!
