What about us who drift the trolleys round the aisles like Ari Vatanen?

Inside and outside lanes any use (have to widen the isles though which'd involve cones)...

My local Morrisons has child size trolleys. You would think sometimes you were at a stock car stadium rather than a supermarket.

Curses?  Bah!  Amateurs!  All this Penguin and what I presume relates to 'He Who Must Not Be Named Because "Voldemort" Sounds Damn Ridiculous, His Parents Must Have Hated Him, This Must Be Where From His Issues Stem'!

 

Cursing takes years of painstaking study and training.  As my ancestors used to say, to get on in life you really must make sacrifices.  And they should have known; they were Druids.

 

So, this for those throwing maledictions without due care and attention:

 

May thy beer turn sour even as thou dost quaff;

May the vinegar thence in thy cup flee as vapours, even as thou for some chips dost reach;

And may thy chips lie cold; yea, even soggy.

 

Now I'll just circumambulate myself and perhaps recite St Patrick's Lorica just in case of retaliation...

Oooooooh you had to go chips... For the love of god man, there are women and children around! (sans trolleys) 

(Hasitly paging through Pogwyns Curses and Malefications for every occasion for a suitable response.... ) 

Aha!

 

May the chocolate chips in your cookies always turn out to be raisins :tease::shoot:

I live in Kenilworth - up to a point.  It's the meeting point of Terenure, Rathgar and Harolds Cross in Dublin.

The idiots who designed the electric handbrake, and placed the control down by the hood release cable. I would use the handbrake in traffic if I could easily/safely reach it. Mercedes are even worse, their's is foot operated, and you need 3 feet if you drive a manual.

Had to look that up I'm afraid.  I suspect I'd find it rather harder to learn off by heart than Three ha'pence a Foot.

Oh I agree there.... 

Ok, yes the postal service here in Africa's Bottom is a bit dodge, but when you offer to organize a courier and pay for everything up front, (transfered from a UK bank, I might add), and the seller still says no..... well.

One of my pet hates and that’s from the parent’s perspective.

 

Like many things the kids’ trolleys are a great idea that doesn’t survive contact with the enemy. Taking the kids to the supermarket isn’t a good idea at the best of times but sometimes there’s no alternative and they do find having their own trolleys entertaining. The problem is that they find having their own trolleys entertaining.

 

They might want to put some of the shopping in their trolley. That’s helpful, in a way. But you spend most of the time telling them to watch where they’re going, slow down, not crash into people and from time to time you have to take your eyes off them to, you know, find what you’re looking for on the shelves and put it in your own trolley so you take your eyes off them for a second and before you know it they’re going for the world trolley speed record/in a different aisle/filling their trolley with stuff you don’t want and they sometimes don’t know what it is but toilet bleach sometimes comes in colourful bottles.

 

Thats what it’s like if you have one kid with a trolley. Two... I’ve tried to forget the experience... like herding cats. Backwards. On ice.

 

My advice to parents and other shoppers alike: If your supermarket introduces these kids trolleys, find another supermarket!

Yes, it hangs on a hook beside my tin foil hat. :P

 

Mk 1 Ford Consuls had a chromed T handle under the dash embossed 'HOOD'. The convertible models (not the pretentious 'cabriolet') had a switch marked 'TOP' for retracting the electric roof.

I'm left perplexed with the winter olympic snowboarding events.

Most competitions "anywhere" require the person to wear clothing which allows them to go faster / reduce wind resistance / etc. So why do snowboarders wear a blimmin' anorak with a massive hood attached?:o

 

 

The biathlon event... THAT is superbly watchable indeed! Get more of that on the telly instead of these 1-ball games that infest the screen!!!
