Should you return your shopping trolley?

6/14/2024
A longstanding debate has emerged once more: should you return your shopping trolley when you’re done with it? An LA based clinical and forensic psychologist shared her answer on social media, telling viewers that she doesn’t return her trolley and they can judge her all they want. "I’m not getting my groceries into the car, getting my children into the car and then leaving them in the car to go return the cart. So if you’re going to give me a dirty look, f*** off." Marcus Lush weighed in on the debate, saying that while some might be “all rageful” that others abandon their trolleys, he’s not so set in stone. “I reckon the supermarkets are extorting us so much with money that if they want to pay someone to go and get the trolleys and make the whole day easier for us, we’re having to check out ourselves, if they want to return the trolley, good on them.” He personally doesn’t abandon the trolley, instead pushing it from a bit closer and hoping it slots in neatly, but he doesn’t have a problem with others leaving them. “That car park space, it is part of the supermarket,” he continued. “They should manage it.” The combination of high costs and a transition to more self-service operations is driving this thought, as customers are now seemingly responsible for every part of the operation. “There is no customer service, so if one small way of getting back is just leaving your trolley akimbo by the car so they put it back, I don’t have a problem with that.” LISTEN ABOVE See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
