There was consternation in a London store today, when a shopping trolley was found to have only one working wheel.
Sally Allports-South from the unnamed shop, where everything costs £1 takes up the story for us: 'Wayne, our trolley boy, was wheeling this one trolley in for us. It is such a shame about Wayne. He is a lovely boy with three degrees to his name, but because of this blessed Credit Crunch this is the only job he has been able to get.
'He often keeps us entertained with his story and ideas, but they often just go over our heads.
'Anyway, he was wheeling in this trolley, and we realised that only one of the wheels was turning when he pushed it. The matter has been looked into as a matter of course, and Dwight, our maintenance man is fixing the trolley as we speak. It is just the second thing to have gone wrong this morning. One of carpet tiles keeps slipping.
'Honestly, sometimes I wonder when things will start to go the right way for us'.
