Hi

Went to my local Asda today and they are selling lots of half price clothes...Great!! Only trouble is guess where they elected to put all this stock? The little trolley park and where have they put the excess trolleys, yep you guessed it in two blue badge bays!!
So I walked in and told bloke as soon as you get there who assists you if security tag is left on that it was a bit daft to put the excess trolleys there...I mean our store has lots of room where they can go and I thought it very selfish...
Ironically guess who pulled up next to me where i parked in bb bay - yep you guessed it a mother with two kids...I couldnt be bothered giving dirty looks but did tell man in store that Asda was penalising people who needed these spaces most...

Typical....

    Hmm not sure if I agree with you there if they are passengers, they may need to help the person with shopping...Another thing that gets my goat is when trolleys are left in space, msot people I see can walk to their cars or if they cant they have someone with them who can....

    How frustrating Elaine. You should be able to rely on the shop staff to sort it out but some shops just cannot be bothered. It is a real shame.

    Did they take any notice, Elaine? How rubbish, I'm glad you said something - they do even less if you don't

    Hi Nina

    Well in all honesty I was only shopping for about 15mins and the man I told about it was away from his station when I went out...Today no trolleys there I think its cos they have a system too where if you try to take trolley past red line it will cease to work so have ordered new trolleys....I think somehow if someone wants to take one though they will find a way..
