    I don't know what its like where you guys live, but we have trolley bays in the carpark, a few of them, and inside the shops aswell. If I have both kids, especialy when my youngest was a baby I park near a bay so I can put them in the car and put the trolley back easily. Otherwise I pop them back in the trolley and back inside, then walk back.
    But I don't see how people leave their trolleys wherever, you'd have to walk them back to somewhere so they're out of the way of a carpark surely?
    Maybe thats why it's good we have to put money in, you'd make more of an effort I think.
    Stray trolleys drive me insane! The poor guys who have to collect them all

    Most of the time yes unless the trolley bay is miles away. I either strap dd in and lock the car and run it back but only if its close enough that i can clearly see our car.

    If the nearest trolley bay is agesss away ( some carparks ive been to are huge with one or two trolley bays ) then no im not leaving dd or trying to walk with her back through a carpark. If thats the case i.make sure i put it out of the way and in a safe spot where it cant roll into a car!

    Its also the centre managements responsibility to put sufficent bays in for customers to use!

    Btw, im not lazy

    1. Yes although I don't see how this would happen unless someone knocked it ( then that would be their fault, not the fault of the person that left it there)

    2 no why would I deliberately hit another car with my trolley? Once I've left it stationary, how would it suddenly start rolling towards a car?

    Wind can make stray trolleys collide with cars.

    My bad. I rarely put trolleys away cos i'm blooming lazy when it comes to it. DH generally will nag me if I dont. The only times I do it is if its right near the car. And I dont particularly park near them either.

    I've now resorted to doing mainly online shopping cos I loathe shopping trolleys... they never seem to steer the way I want them to.

    I've seen someone dump a trolley in a place they thought was stationary and then 30 seconds later it had rolled down the car park and smacked into a new car.

    I've also seen people pull into parking spots that they thought were empty to find a dumped trolley in there and have accidentally knocked it. It's not the drivers fault, you don't pull into a parking spot thinking someone may have just left a trolley there, you pull in thinking the spot will be empty.

    I am genuinely shocked by the number of people who don't put them back.

    Selfish.

    As I stated, my reason for not putting them back is to make it easier for the next person.

    When I had a baby in arms and a couple of young toddlers, I always appreciated finding stray trolleys to make my task easier. It was always frustrating when they had all been put away and I had to shepherd the youngsters across the carpark without the aid of a trolley.

    So no, I dont believe it is selfish to not put them back. In my opinion, I am doing someone else a favour by leaving them available and easy to access.
