    I think we use our kids as excuses abit too much when we're being inconsiderate. There is no respect for peoples cars when your trolley could be the one that scratches it or causes damage.
    I have 2 kids under 4 19months apart and I manage to get my trolley back everytime, I really just think it's all excuses. I'd accept it if you admit it's just laziness and you don't care, rather than give the excuse its too hard to put it back. Because you managed to get it just fine, and surely you aren't finding stray trolleys in a perfect parking spot, close to the entrance every single time.
    Don't give a rats if you accept it's too hard to put it back or not. I'll throw an extra baby in your hands and see if you can juggle the baby and 2 runners who are probably irritated and screaming and want to have a nap and see if you manage that easily. Most people DO put it back. sorry we're not ALL perfect. I'd rather put my kids safety first than ANYTHING.

    I hate those half trolleys!!! You battle all the elements to get your trolley to a bay only to find someone has chained one of these to a full size trolley making it impossible to put your trolley in. You're left with two options, leave your trolley, foregoing your $2 or wandering around, looking lost and sad, for another bay.
    Ban those half trolleys, l would be a happy Jan.

    Can I just ask, why are people being so negative about these people simply because of their job?

    I don't think of them as 'deros' or anything less than myself.

    Same here. Outside my house seems to be the local dumping spot for trolleys. I don't get it when those who dump them there still have to walk home from here with their groceries.

    All these people who are saying they don't put them back because they have kids and its a 'safety issue' that's just a crap excuse to make yourself feel better. You have your kids with you when you get to the shops, they walk with you to the shops.

    Stop with these crap excuses to make yourself feel better.

    If you can walk your kids into the shop, you can walk them to the trolly bay, it's not hard.

    I either put it back in the proper bay to claim back my gold coin but on quite a few occasions I've had another person (usually a Mum) who has just arrived and parked near me offer to take the trolley in order to use it themselves (and given me a coin to cover the one already in there). That's a win-win!

    I don't need 'crap excuses to make myself feel better' as I don't feel bad at all.

    As a couple of people have said, depending on the carpark it can be easier (and I consider safer) to put a child in the car BEFORE unloading the shopping, and in summer/ hotter states it's then necessary to start the engine running too (for aircon).

    At my local supermarket it can be a nightmare trying to balance the trolley behind the car, and just make it stay still without rolling off down a slope! The first thing I do is take DD out - and even then I sometimes have to chase the trolley as it rolls downhill afterwards. It's a bit of a nightmare.

    If the engine is running then I will only walk a few cars away to a trolley bay, as I'm not comfortable leaving her in a running car for any longer.

    At other supermarkets, where that's not an issue, then I might unload the trolley first, and then take DD with me to put it away.

    All depends on the particular supermarket/ carpark.

    I never thought of it as a big deal, or something people cared about! (As long as the trolleys were left somewhere safe, of course...)

    other towns I dont know them and thus I have no idea what they are like but the local ones I do know.
    Ok so then their job is irrelevant then.

    I always do as I always try and park right near the trolley bay.

    we have a few local kids (about 13/14 years old) who go around and offer to take back people's trolley so they can keep the $1 or $2... for a couple bucks, the convenience is great lol
