Definitely outnumbered last night! But what's this?! Imposter! Green handles! Woolworth's trolley!

Do I see signs of an upcoming territorial conflict between shopping trolley tribes?

This probably should be in the angry thread, but is anybody else annoyed by the fact that at shopping malls all the different stores use different size trolleys that are mutually incompatible? It really irritates me when they insist on a coin slot to ensure you don't leave the country with the trolley! You never seem to be able to hook up your trolley to another because they are all so different!  :veryangry:

Is it time to rename this Topic 'My Local Trolly (bus) stop'   ???

@JonHarbour In the UK I get a handfull of the plastic tokens that are available to replace the coin in the trolly handle slot so you can leave your trolly anywhere 'cos the tokens are disposable.

I will send you a sackfull or maybe just a heap of 1.00 coins because they do not seem to be worth much.

Gone :offtopicsign: sorry George  ;)

Not sure about pounds, but the Japanese 10 yen coin makes an excellent substitute for trolleys which accept Euros.

I'm a bit worried that you could be a trolley junkie. This hanging around bus stops too. A busiophile? :o

Oooh,

It's like 'Mock the Week',

Royal Blue Trolleys?

Ratted Bealman Telling off?

A run over RaBbiT?

Nearer with the second answer methinks. Had to look RBT up. We don't seem to have the boys in blue doing that down our way. Not that I would do it  :no:

Cheers for the latest update. Do Woolies still have the massive loose sweet aisle that I never, ever stole from as a kid  :no:

Cheers weave  :beers:

I started this thread as a joke.

However, I would like to show forum members what routine life is here in Australia.

Well, I just can't believe I watched an episode of Home and Away at the bowling club!  :sick2: :sick2: :sick2:

thankfully I can honestly say after over 30yrs in Aus I have still to experience an episode of either Neighbours or Home & Away, even though the former is filmed in the next suburb to me.
