Travelators, trolleys and children

A parenting dilemma: 

When we're at the shops, SP is in the trolley more often than not. He likes it, I like it, I don't have to remember to bring the pram, and we have room for lots of stuff. All good. 

Except that I noted a couple of months ago that one of the posted rules of travelators is 'no children riding in trolleys'. 

I've been ignoring the rule for a while, but my conscience is getting the better of me. So this afternoon, instead of putting SP back in the trolley for the walk from the kids playzone back to the car, I thought I'd obey the rule. 

This is where the problems start. If I am to hold onto the rail with one hand (another posted rule), and also hold my child's hand (yep, that's a rule too), how do I hold on to the trolley?

I guess its between my conscience and the very inconveniently placed lift.

  1. I had to google "travelator" to find out what it was. I think we just call them moving walkways over here. It does sound like it's a difficult thing to maneuver. But I've only ever seen them in airports.

    Thanks for commenting on my post yesterday!
