Only in Singapore does the national paper carry a front page above-the-fold colour photo lead-in to a news report about a supermarket losing its trolleys. It seems that NTUC supermarket's loss of trolleys is now a national crisis.
Their trolleys must be very special, maybe made of gold or something, because I don't see any other supermarket's lost trolleys given this kind of media coverage. Even CNA has a report on this.
Maybe they will run commercials like this soon (Cue: touching charity music):
"Every month, hundreds of NTUC supermarket trolleys are lost to thieves and lazy people. This needs to stop. Trolleys are innocent helpers of mankind. Trolley are beasts of burden, carrying your groceries to your car, never complaining, never asking for a word of thanks.
Don't abandon our trolleys. They have a home too.
This public service announcement is brought to you by NTUC Supermarkets."
NTUC, go and deal with your own trolley problem and stop wasting our time.
