Reid’s shopping trolley graveyard

By johnboy - 23 December 2013 8

graveyard

Just down the hill from the War Memorial is a little depot, and behind that is, it seems, where the lost shopping trolleys are corralled.

A lot more Coles than Wooleys it seems.

There’s also the yet to be found stockpiles of Woollies, Aldi, Supabarn and IGA trolleys – which will be used in the supermarkets to be built in the Parliamentary Triangle as part of the long-awaited introduction of real-world commercial convenience, after the grim centuries of wax-works sterility…..dream on….it’s Christmas!

Looks like more security than the old Molonglo Concentration Camp.

I would say that you have stumbled upon a trolley rebirthing operation, be careful. These people are not to be messed with since they are the sons of the original bag boys that shops used to have. When trolleys came in they saw that the industry that they had so carefully controlled for generations was being wheeled out from underneath them. They only had one choice, join them or perish by convenience industry standards.

They took the first option and soon they had cornered the entire market through brute force and sheer will. The world was their carpark and if you are not careful you may end up waking up stuffed in a trolley that has 3 good wheels and one bad one. You will not know exactly what happened when you took your groceries to the car or where you are. However, you know that you have been dumped in some cavernous Westfield multi-story carpark with a bio-degradable plastic bag over your head and a wad of shopper discount dockets shoved in your mouth.

I asked the guy who runs the Belconnen operation about the how it all worked. He looked up at me and said that he didnt know what I was talking about. I pressured him with more questions and he said he would have tyo get his friend because “his english wasnt good”, his friend arrived and I asked the same thing and he told me to piss off, I knew I was getting too close and I ended it there and then and started walking away when one of them said something, but I could not understand it…..”his english wasnt good”.

This can all be blamed on the Germans who, in the sixteenth century, developed a newer, grander, faster way of transporting ones goods to ones carriage without having to suffer the indignity of dealing with the commonfolk and lesser trolly-folk or Trollevalken as they were once known (some say that this is where the myth of trolls living under bridges come from due to the large amount of trollies being discarded in rivers, creeks and streams.)

When Gustav Einkaufswagen had they idea of placing a tray onto a cart the world they had just been in entered a new age of enlightenment because know without having to carry bags everywhere and tieing up ones hands, one could now do many other things and this is where the idea of m?ltitæsking or multi-tasking as we now know it came from

Be careful with these people, they are the Illuminati and Freemasons of shopping centre product transport industry and they are very, very powerful. Just by letting you know this snippet of their history they will surely use their magic german based power’s and gimp up my trolley Princess Diana style and I will go from OPSM to centrestage in 2 easy steps next time I shop, so please, be carefull.

Excellent. Give that person a mince pie. Or strudel or gingerbread or sauerkraut or beer or something.
