With so much fuss about the Shopping Cart Theory, stating, If You’re A Good Or A Bad Person, made most people rethink, ‘Are we really a decent human being?’

For those who’re not aware of this trending topic, here’s a brief! An anonymous guy posted a hypothesis on Twitter that how the decision between returning your shopping cart/trolley to the store, or basically abandoning it, can decide if 'an individual is moral or not'. With no potential ramifications for neglecting to do something and no exterior reward for doing as such, restoring the shopping basket to its original spot is one of the simplest and best examples of moral choice.

It says, “To return the shopping cart is an easy, convenient task and one which we all recognize as an appropriate thing to do but at the same time, it is not illegal to abandon your shopping cart anywhere in the middle. Therefore the shopping cart presents itself as the apex example of whether a person will do what is right without being forced to do it”.

Moreover, the person states ‘who doesn’t return trolleys is ‘no better than an animal’ and can only be made to do the right thing ‘by threatening them with the law and the force that stands behind it’.

In the wake of hurling a large number of arguments and counter-arguments, the majority on Twitter favored the theory with numerous retail laborers introducing their own experience. Meanwhile, a few users brought up the point that returning a shopping trolley, although a basic enough activity to most, maybe a greater arrangement for those with disabilities or those experiencing chronic illness or pain. Obviously there were some who professed to leave the trucks anyplace however the assigned spots to give retail laborers more work and thereby entitling logic was, to get more income.
