Hi! I am that annoying guy that approaches your basket while you are over reading the peanut butter lable, and say, "Excuse me, is this your purse?" I never point or touch the cart or purse. I then explain that the crime rate has increased and we have more criminal on the street snatching purses or whatever they get from you. I explain that in that purse is your whole life's history from addresses, phone numbers, drivers license & cards & pictures of your children. It is probably the most valuable thing a women has. I then explain there are a few ways to protect the purse if you have it in the cart, like put it down under that fold out section in the cart, and put your grocierys on top of it. Afterall, the last thing you need after setting everything on the counter, is the purse to pay. I also explain how you can use the child strap to secure the purse handles. And I recommend a women get the climbing hook to hook their purse handles to the cart. Nope, none of my business. But I do it as a concerned citizen who has seen a criminal take a purse from a cart and run out the front door into the parking lot. Long gone before the women even turned back around to my yelling. I say 5 seconds and he was gone with her bag. So please, shoulder your bag, but if that isn't your style while shopping, secure it in that cart.
