Supermarkets, ditch mangled trolleys

HERE is a question for some local supermarket managers - why do you make grocery shopping such a difficult, unpleasant and awkward experience?

We are obliged to pay for our purchases with good quality, undamaged money, yet to select these goods, we are forced to utilise pieces of mangled scrap metal that masquerade as supermarket trolleys, whose sole means of mobility appear to have lost all their wheel bearings and tyres, and which break into a speed-wobble at nothing greater than walking pace, making it impossible to push them in a straight line over even the shortest distance. Why don’t you repair or ditch them? In their current state of (dis)repair, they impact, sadly, on your corporate image.
