    Thats a bit harsh dont u think? Majority of the ones that said they havent on ocassion have done so for a reason and do put them back most of the time.

    I rarely leave them but when i have the distance to the nearest bay is ridiculous and thats not my fault and i make sure they cant roll away. The last thing id want is for it to damage someones car!

    I hate leaving trolleys but im not compromising dds safety just because a centre cant put in a few extra bays!

    No I don't think I'm being harsh.

    Obviously the people who do it have reasons to justify it to themselves. Doesn't mean I agree

    And doing it to actually help others? Come on! It's common courtesy to put them back. Not doing so means you lack courtesy. At least people like R&A are honest about it!

    I usually do unless It's pouring rain and the bay is quite a distance away. But generally I do.

    Yep I do because it's got my Aldi coin in it!
    If a different shop I will still take to the trolley bay. I rarely go shopping with my DS and if I do, he stays in the car and I can see him

    Nope. It depends on how far away it is. I will do it if it's not ages away, but I'm not walking 5 lanes away just to do that. Eff that.

    The trolley boys around here do little more than stand around smoking anyway - like every single time I ever enter the carpark, there's a bunch of them bumming around. Meh.

    I edited my post to say at least you were honest and not saying you did it to help others. Lol!

    Saying you cant do it as your kids are in the car is just another example of mothers using the "I have kids so the rules don't apply to me" excuse.

    Leave your kids in a locked car for 20 secs or risk damaging someone car with a rogue trolley? Not a hard choice IMO.

    Well you are entitled to your opinion.

    But saying people are selfish and not courteous isnt very nice. Im actually extremely courteous. I always put others first

    Just because on the rare occasion, for reasons i believe are justified, ive not returned a trolley to a bay over the other side of a huge carpark out of concern for my dd, hardly qualifies for such labels in this world.

    My opinion of course!

    Only on bh could a thread about trolleys turn sour hey!

    When I have both of my toddlers with me and the trolley bay is far away I don't simply because of safety reasons that one of my toddlers may run in front of a car. Otherwise I do.

    I weigh this up a fair bit and honestly I just don't feel comfortable leaving my 2 and 3 yr olds in the car on their own if the trolley bay is more than 20m away. I also worry about taking them with me in case they run in front of a car.
