Tried it. Didn’t work. Also embarrassing as I couldn’t get the 20ps back out of the slot

I love the psychology that people will put the trolley back for the pound!
Why hasn't this made the headlines on BBC news?

Don’t want to boast too much and make you all jealous but I actually got a free £1 from a trolly this morning that was left from yesterday and I put back and got a £1
The round end of some house keys works as well. Credit to a random lady in ALDI when I forgot my token.

I'd have voted that hot as a local deal

Local deals are the best.

Would lawyers consider that theft by finding or would it be considered labour??

I’m not sure. I was directed to the trolly by a member of staff as i’d got no change and asked how to get a trolly as Aldi don’t have customer service area like other supermarkets so I didn’t feel like I was stealing.

I did ponder who breaks off shopping without taking the trolly back for the £1.

Your excuse is not convincing enough.

Off to the gulag you go.
Those blue coin things that Tesco give out at the tills for the charity box by the door work I believe.

Same here, I tried it with Sainsbury's trolleys and ended up getting a basket, at least Tesco and Morrisons near font require a £. I rarely carry change.

No they have changed the size now to stop that

Luckily you have the old type the newer type are much thicker to stop this
Just move to a nicer area where they don't require you to put a £1 in the trolley as they don't trust the locals!
panhandlers galore hanging daily around the trolley parks at tesco on the old kent road!!

Hmmmm. Sounds like entrapment to me. Staff member was clearly stealing from the store £1 at a time via the trolleys, clearly got too close to getting caught and needed somebody to blame. Who better than a customer - perfect crime.

At 16/17 I used to work at Morrisons as the "trolley boy" coins on trolleys was a new thing then and people often forgot to take them back, my wages was more than doubled by the coins left most saturdays, (bear in mind my hourly wage was less than £3.50 back then), often it was upwards of £40, when it rained it was even more as people couldnt be bothered and was in a hurry to get in their nice dry car, the most "bonuses" I made on a single shift was over £100. Most people saw the trolley boy as a lowly job but it was probably the best paid job in the shop other than the manager. I'd never been fittter and had massive calf muscles as the car park was on a slope so pushing 20 trolleys uphill regularly. None of these fancy pants electric cart pushers the soft lads have these days. I got the store record for a snake of 42 trolleys up that hill.

BTW Judging by our local Aldi this tip doesnt work, half their trolleys dont lock as they have either 2 20p coins wedged in our the plastic charity voting coin from Tescos in them.

I use one of these

Wow Amazing you got 100 trolleys left on one shift. I wish my Saturday job had had bonuses like that.

Wasn't just laying around, left people used to push them into the bay and forget to hook them up I actually loved that job as sad as it seems. People even used to leave handbags in the trolley (at least once per shift I found one) they went into the office though.

Mine broke too, so I used an offcut of steel and the angle grinder to make one using the Mrs's as a template. I doubt this one will break. The link I posted seems good value though as they are bogof, so im going to order them for little gifts. People seem amazed by them when they see you use them they look at you like you have just performed magic, you know when someone asks if you can change their coins for a £1 coin and you release it for them instead.
wow harlzter - that was a very lucrative job for you.

now I know why so many panhandlers are patrolling my local tesco car park - although I doubt if many local shoppers are prepared to sacrifice their pounds in these days of austerity (soon coming to an end thanks to boris's money tree).
