    Mine is my youngest will not sit in the supermarket trolley and therefore I have to take the pram which of course has no storage! ahh
    That is why I always shop with a carrier to put the little squirmer in. My personal frustration is when DD starts pulling things off the shelves and carrying them around till she drops it for the next thing she decides she likes.

    Not being able to leave the trolley next to anything because DS will pull a loaf of bread off the shelf and then take a giant bite out of it and the plastic... But then if I try have it far enough away from anything people get annoyed with a trolley in the way.

    "Ta! Ta! Taaaaaa!"

    Meltdowns... Screaming... Grabbing food out of the trolley behind him, having to set it up so the soft foods, chip packets etc are out of reach. screaming because I won't give him cans... I could go on.

    DF does the shopping for us. Sometimes he'll take the kids and I go every now and then. I find it frustrating when DS2 starts losing it just before we finish because he's tired or it's near dinner time. DS1 is pretty good and helpful but I'm sure DF likes going without us because it's quicker without me. Lol.

    When DS reaches back into the trolley and pulls groceries out and drops them on the floor. Or when I give him something to play with out of the trolley and he bites through the packaging!

    DD wont sit in the trolley for long and when she is let out she runs to different isles and grabs things off the shelf. I'm left with trying to keep an eye on DS ( who is great to shop with) and running after DD.

    If they both sit in the trolley, then they'll find something to fight over.

    "Can we get a toy? Well can we at least look at the toy aisle?" *look at toy aisle* "Can we just get one thing? Please? It's not fair!" *tears*

    Then the telling them not to stand on the trolley, wheel the trolley, stand in front of the trolley, get out of people's way.

    Then if I use the self serve check out it's telling them a million times to not touch the baggage area, don't put things in the baggage are, don't take things from the baggage area.

    Argh.

    I rarely have to take them thank goodness.

    So I may have bought DS a lollipop once or 5 times and now every. Single. Time we go to the shops a lollipop is requested, most of the time it's not worth the tantrum of saying no but I do only buy it at the end if he has behaved. Lollipops near the checkout are my enemy!
    He also asks for a car every time we go past the toy section.

    For some reason he also really hates sitting in the trolley, sometimes I can bargain and put him in the main bit but then my shopping gets trampled.

    ETA: I don't know how any of you shop with more then one child!

    I only do online groceries for the weekly shop and then pop in for forgotten/extra stuff. I have absolutely no desire to take my 2.75 year old around the shops!! He gets bored and annoying lol
