The lonely shopping cart

One scene that seems to appear in most post-apocalyptic movie or series is a scene where you see a single shopping cart standing in a parking lot. It seems to sum up the loneliness of the loss of much of civilization. It’s also a scene that preceded the zombie mob or other danger left in the world appearing.

Why am I mentioning this? Well, I’ve experience the scene in real life walking toward my job early morning Monday. It is peculiar to walk thought a shopping mall parking lot and see that lonely shopping cart alone, not a sound, no human to be seen. Suddenly, a soft moan rising from the distance. It was the highway, but still creepy and awesome in a way.
