s-h-o-pp-i-n-g

We had a bit of a 'going out' day yesterday, enjoying the mild weather with Cath and little Luke in Watford. I'd forgotten how huge the Harlequin Centre is, with a fairly wide range of shops for us to browse through, once we'd walked most of the length of the High Street.

Before we came home, we had a few bits to pick up from Asda, and I noticed for the first time that there was a picture warning on the trolley handle - see the photo to the right. I only mention this because I think it's a little unfair that the picture representing the 'right' way of doing things features a woman, and the person pushing the trolley with children climbing all over it is a man. What are they trying to say? Am I over-reacting? (It's OK - I'm not going to be writing a letter to the manager. Well, not about that, anyway. I've been intending to jot a note to the store manager about the fact there's nowhere to store a push-chair when a trolley's needed, and it's impossible to push both; that's fine for people who've driven up to the store, but no use for those of us who prefer to walk).Trolley Sexism?

Link of the day:

  • www.nbc.com/nbc/.../theoffice_preview : They've made an American version of The Office - this is the trailer. There's plenty of discussion of the rights and wrongs of this interpretation on the Digital Spy forums. Me? I thought it was passable but mainly pointless.
