    On another thread, a poster mentioned the act of ‘trollying’,which I didn’t immediately recognise, so I did some research.

    It seems there are at least two forms of this act

    1 – surreptitiously adding products to other consumers shopping trolleys

    2 – riding a supermarket trolley down a hill

    Is anyone aware of other types of trollying?

    When I was a kid I used to go to visit my grandparents on a trolleybus. Was that an early form of trollying?

    Or is it the art of building a trolley usually from pram wheels, odd bits of wood and a piece of rope attached to front wheel axles for steering. Something my brother and boy next door put together in their wild days (now 58 and 59 respectively!).

    Stewardesses used to wonder if it was better to be called the “Dolly with the trolley” or the “Tart with the cart”.

    Perhaps a term to be used in the all too common event of those seated in the aisle, having elbows, knees & legs ‘accidentally’ bashed by cabin crew as they do the rounds – Jet2 are the worst I’ve experienced for this kind of ‘Trollying’ – Anyone would think they derived pleasure from it 😉

    I’ve never tried number 1. Sounds like fun though.

    I wouldn’t recommend number 2 though. Too many health and safety implications, in the event of hitting something you could find yourself ‘In the air’ without a paddle.
