I experienced a very bizarre moment on the weekend in Woolworths. DH, DD and I were doing our grocery shopping, everything was normal, and then I saw it...
A woman using a twin baby capsule trolley with no babies anywhere to be seen.
I honestly stopped dead in my tracks. EB had come to life and was right there in my local Woolworths. Past threads from EB raced through my mind and I seriously expected that an outraged twin/multiples mum was going to appear and give the woman a piece of her mind. I forced myself to start walking again, thought that maybe there were babies somewhere else who would catch up to the woman (being changed by dad perhaps?) and therefore the twin trolley would be "justified" IYKWIM.
A few aisles later I saw the woman and trolley again. Nope, no babies still.
Another aisle or two, definitely no babies.
Actually this is when I learned what the real purpose of the twin trolley was: the baby capsules provided very handy elbow rests for her teenage son to use as he pushed the trolley. My DH noticed it by then, and knew that twin trolleys were an EB topic, and told me to take a picture and post it. I wasn't brave enough to because the woman/mum looked really mean and scared me a bit.
I was still expecting a twin/multiples mum to appear and tell this woman off. Sadly, it didn't happen that I know of.
FTR there were plenty of trolleys available, and the baby capsule trolleys (single and twin) are used by the staff to block off closed checkouts so they aren't usually anywhere near the trolley bay, but can be easily found by those who need them.
Has EB and real life ever collided for you?
