    4) Some people whom live nearby the area they are shopping at rather take the trolley home, this way they can get a trolley whenever needed and they don't need to carry the shopping bag back home by hand.

  20. 1) the first reason would be that the trolley ease the load and since some of us might be buying many many things since it's like 90% discount sale and all the singaporeans just go there and buy as much as possible so they would end up with like 10-20 plastic bags impossible to bring home so they would use a trolley to bring them home

    2) some singaporeans that are in the need of money would bring the trolley out to be sold as the steel can be melted down into other materials and they would gain some money.

    3)they might take the trolley's for their own persoal use for example they need to give their neighbours some heavy stuff, they woulld use the trolley to bring it over.

    4)maybe it's their first time at that supermarket and are in a hurry to go home, so they do not know where to put the trolley so they panic!! then they just leave the trolley somewhre and innocently walk away
