Same here. Rose - hence the 'chauffeur'. I pay the petrol - he drives up and we go for a walk after.

I always put the trolley back...but then I don't have (nor could I afford) a car to push the trolley to ;-)

BK. I think you did. It was. It was not true or fair in any way. I would be, but I didn't. And I wouldn't.

And you have done exactly the same thing with this post. Nothiong about the thread at all. Just a determination that you know my motives. You seem to know very little about anything.


TheBlackKnight Report 30 Mar 2013 21:32

Just to set the record straight. John I did not abuse you in my posting early today. For you to say I did is untrue & unfair. I did point out what you was doing but that was a fact & true. If you are going to report me at least be man enough & honest enough to admit it.


JustJohn Report 30 Mar 2013 19:31

Think Terry is roughly same age as me. We fought in the wars and do threaten like Corporal Jones. But not quite as able to go througth with it as Clive Dunn was :-) ;-)

All huff and no puff. But huff stops these things from happening often :-)

Really terryj you think threatening someone with violence is funny? :-S


JustJohn Report 30 Mar 2013 19:14

Joy. I think Ken Barlow and the other trolley dollys are still in a job when the £1 applies.

Most people leave trolly in a bay adjacent to where they parked. But pick them up as near to entrance as possible. So someone has to go out to the far ends of the car park and "snake" them back to the store.

In our local store they use a vehicle, so quite a skilled and important job for the dolly.


terryj Report 30 Mar 2013 17:13

our road has an ally leading to the local co op car park and so a lot of people in the road wheel their shopping home in the trolely and take the trolley back the next time they go that way
some toe rag started coming around at 4 in the morning in a hi vis and collecting up all the trolleys plus the £1 coins in them caught him a treat coming home at stupid oclock one sunday a quick threat of serious viiolence and injury put a stop to him in our road :-D

i always put my trolley back
but if everydy did the trolly dollys would be out of a job

Sylvia - sorry about the late reply - I Redeem the money. :-D
I used precious shoe leather to take that trolley back :-|


JustJohn Report 30 Mar 2013 15:42

Oh silly me, Eeyore. Must be me that can't read then. Must give myself a smack.

:-| :-|


Eeyore13 Report 30 Mar 2013 15:28

Well you pointed it out & then apologised if the content upset anyone else lol . !!!!

As for paying for trolleys-I think thats the way to go plus people park them properly so you don't get them escaping & hitting people & cars.


JustJohn Report 30 Mar 2013 15:21

I very rarely report anything. Nothing this weekend at all (or for at least last 2 weeks). Tend to say when I report a post and why.

Why assume I had reported it when I said I saw nothing wrong, Eeyore. I am confused by your post :-S


KittytheLearnerCook Report 30 Mar 2013 15:21

Iceland near us have a £1 deposit on their trolleys as does the Coop, the other large supermarkets don't.

Maybe this is the way to go to stop the stray trollies.


Eeyore13 Report 30 Mar 2013 15:17

What mild abuse? There was no abuse in it at all-so why did you report it?


JustJohn Report 30 Mar 2013 15:11

Did I notice TheBlackKnight's first post was reported and has since diasappeared.

I assume from that report was upheld.

I would just like tio say that the mild abuse he wrote in that letter to yours truly did not upset me at all. I am sorry it upset anybody else. :-( :-( :-(


wisechild Report 30 Mar 2013 14:23

To get back to the original topic of shopping trollies.
At Madrid airport, they have decided to stop returning the €1 that you deposit. They will no doubt generate a considerable income from this, although they may have to employ people to recover all the abandoned ones as there will no longer be any incentive to return them.
Wonder how long before the supermarkets jump on the bandwagon.


AnnCardiff Report 30 Mar 2013 11:43

and there was me, thinking you had eventually got the message and realised how much people detest most of what you post - you changed your avatar for the better but you, you've not changed one little bit have you - still a WUM and a stirrer


JustJohn Report 30 Mar 2013 11:11

Bye. Love you lots, The BlackKnight <3 <3

I must try to be a fortune teller - would make a fortune

I don't think so John you need talent for that. :-D :-D

As much as I would like to chat, I have a life & must go & live it as I have much to do in it.
