    When you're in supermarkets and pushing a trolley, does anyone else check to see if they're in an empty aisle - and when you are, you run with it and jump on the wheels so you go flying down the aisle?

    Or is it just me?

    I don't do it that much. Honest.

    Trolley surfing is awesome. However make sure you slow down before you get to the end of the aisle, otherwise you might knock a child over. I learnt this the hard way

    And you've got to beat them to the end of the aisle? :ahee:

    I always have Murray Walkers voice going through my head aswell as a sort of commentary.

    Are you kidding, I trolley-surfed out of there as fast as i could as soon as the mum started yelling at me. Ah, to be a child again.









    To think, that was only a year ago.

    The frozen sections are the best for this IMO. All the food is on the other side of the glass so unless you accidentally hit the glass with extreme force, no food spillages should occur.

    I often go food shopping with a couple of friends, so trolley fights and races are inevitable

    I've had my fair share of running out of super-markets in a panick. Once me and my friend were walking by this stand where there were loads of pre-cooked meals and me and my friend were messing about pushing the trolley back and forth to each other. It hit the stand and the stand fell on the pre-cooked meals squishing the contents out onto all the passerbys shoes. The stand then had a dominoe effect and knocked over another stand right in front of me.

    Never sprinted so fast in my life, a security guy ran after us as well :cool:
