I always went with my mother shopping. I liked it. I am the youngest of 4, with sisters 9 and 11 years older so it was never a neccessity to take me. Dad was the one who would add stuff to the trolley.
At the age of 14 or 15 we were fundraising selling raffle tickets outside the supermarket. Mum stayed with the tickets and I did the groceries. When I'd done the tour of the shop, I parked the trolley in a corner and went and traded places with Mum outside.
She went in, found the trolley, and paid for the groceries. She had no problems with it, I had a usual shop in the trolley. But with ice-cream.
