Off My Trolley

Well off yours actually! Australia is usually a fairly tidy place, at least compared to England that is, but shopping trolleys in car parks really spin my wheels (except for the sticky one at the back). I have just watched a woman fight for five minutes to wedge her discarded trolley in between her car and the one behind. By the time she was finished she was huffing and puffing and sweating like a pig. The stupid part was that the trolley bay was alongside her, just one car away, and it took more effort the dump the trolley than it would have taken to stick it in the rack!
She's not the only one to do this. I have seen lots of trolley dumpers and even heard a mother tell her young son not to bother walking those ten feet with the trolley but just to dump it where he was.
Makes you hope they snag one on the way out and leave gouges in their cars doesn't it.
