March 8th was International Women's Day and I honored five women in my life that have made a positive difference in my life. I'm ignoring the ones who have made a negative difference, I don't have time to waste on them.

Back to the positive; The list could have been longer but I ran out of time. If I didn't mention you, I hope you know who you are.

Two of the young ladies that made my list are my daughters Riley and Tara. I mentioned how they are selfless with their time and money. They ALWAYS think of others first and they have energy that just doesn't quit.

Tara is handling a junior year school schedule, dance, working part-time at Price Chopper, and getting ready to perform in a play this June.

Riley is working full-time at Aldi's on Upper Front Street and is a very hard worker and is loved by many at her job. Last year, she received the FIRST-EVER "Employee of the Month" at their location.

I think it's awesome that they both work in a customer service job. They never complain and treat people with respect. My girl's workaround shopping carts all day and I've asked them about "shopping cart character."

What is "shopping cart" character

I think you can tell a lot about a person's character by their shopping cart. This is the way you act when no one is watching. Returning a shopping cart is easy and the right thing to do.

When you return it, it takes time off your day and you get nothing in return. In fact, it's not illegal to abandon your cart by your vehicle. Before you jump all over me, I realize that there are exceptions and that is certainly true here.

You might have to leave the cart because you have kids in the car or you have to use the bathroom and you want to use the one at home. I know my girls have shopping cart character because I've seen them in action. I hope yours do too.
