What Could Go Wrong?

Dear SJG,
What do you think about the news that Walmart plans to roll out motorized shopping carts that drive themselves?
Tired of Pushing

Dear Tired,
I'm thinking, what could possibly go wrong? A few things come to mind. One or two near-fatal shopping cart collisions every 15 minutes. Runaway carts with children inside. Nascar-style races up and down the aisles. Lawsuits up the wazoo. The ultimate Decline of Western Civilization. And don't get me started on all the alien civilizations. God only knows what's going on there. They've probably had motorized self-driving shopping carts forever. They're so ahead of us, it hurts my feelings. So, to answer your question, other than a few potential snafus, I'm thinking it's one of the greatest ideas in history.
You're welcome,
