    I think I know I should have gone back into the store.
    I was really scared of posibly ending up in an argument or something worse if the parent 'caught me' complaining about it because the car was gross and pulled into the park on an angle I completely generalised that it would be some scary mother that would punch me or something if she noticed me complaining.
    Dam it.

    I would have waited until the carer returned, if that was an longer than a few minutes I'd probably go into the shop, get them to put an announcement out, failing that call the police.

    I would have stayed at the car and called the police. Simple as that.

    Are you sure they were left in the car? I often leave my boys in the car when returning the trolley - I'm not far away and I feel it's safer than having them running around the car park whilst I mess with the trolley coin thing! The 2 year old could of been having a tantrum over not getting something when mum left to take the trolley back... you never know

    I am going to call the store now I think and make them check if the car has left or not.

    Yes best case scenario the mother could have been returning the trolley but the 2y.o just looked SOO upset that it would have taken him longer to get to being that upset than it would for the mother to return the trolley. I simply think she was shopping and left the kids in the car. But still not good enough. I will call the store now

    I would have had a quick check to see if there was a parent returning a trolley and called the police. So unfair

    I park like a moron and occasionally leave Roar in the car to return a trolley.. I would never hit anyone

    I think sometimes we make assumptions based on "gross cars and bad parking" when really, child safety should be the main priority.. (not a go at you, Christ knows I have been in similar positions and have been as worried about the same things you are.. - I just wish none of us were, if that makes sense?)
