Shopping cart "rempit"

My mom was hit hard by a shopping cart pushed by a kid in the supermarket last weekend. The cart hit her in the ribs and almost knocked the wind out of her. The kid’s mother promptly apologized for the kid’s behaviour but the damage is done. Days after that incident, my mom is still reeling from the pain. My dad finally took her to the clinic and she had an x-ray done which thankfully revealed nothing serious, just a bad bruise.

It makes me wonder how an adult could leave their kid with a shopping cart full of stuff while they do their shopping. Least of all, an adult who’ll let the kid push a shopping cart packed with stuff at full speed. As evident in my mom’s case, someone could get hurt!
