Please watch those trolleys. Lord, I've seen one or two bashings this past week in supermarket car parks. Ladies (sorry but that's what I saw) with full trolleys and two demanding children can do a lot of damage to other cars. In one case, she did it to her own.

I didn't see any of them leave a note or claim culpability. Indeed, I felt they unloaded and left with admirable alacrity. But it is not fair to the unsuspecting owner. A few small dents or scratches may not seem like much but take a look at the bill by the time the panel beater is finished.

I don't know if the season of goodwill has dawned yet, but please be extremely careful. It is only fair to all concerned.

Have you seen instances of trolley scrapes?
