Trolley etiquette

The sights of supermarket trolleys parked one kilometre away from the supermarkets where they belong are common in Muscat. I once found a trolley belonging to Lulu in the filling station near the Muttrah Corniche roundabout. I simply can’t understand how some people manage to just walk away with these trolleys. What’s even more worrisome is no one notices as they walk away with the trolleys. Or do people notice but just don’t bother to confront these trolley-jackers?

Though the phenomenon of how these trolleys end up so far away from the supermarkets is amusing, it is actually also quite dangerous. I witnessed an empty unattended trolley crash into a car as it drove up the inclined road entering Lulu Ghubra. It left a nasty dent in the front fender.

The only way out of having unattended supermarket trolleys all over the city is people having to pay to use these. It should be implemented is all supermarkets with immediate effect.
