I got my old side by side doulble stuck in Iceland once.Double doors going in,fine.Through the wide checkout,fine.Single door going out.Not so clever.I went out that week and bought a tandem.
I do mainly shop online now too.Just not worth the hassle.
Shops are just not set up to cater for those of us who have buggies (and i would also think wheel chair users). I had a tandem but though fine going through doors, it was a nightmare to turn around corners. people even used to jump in front of me in the queue as apparently it didnt look like i was in it!
even the smallest single buggy, i find is a nightmare round some shops. yes i too internet shop as i just cant be bothered with the hassle. am looking forward to the day when i dont have to take a buggy into town!
one of my bugbears!!!
Getting round shops is a nightmare these days....even without a pram/pushchair (let alone a double) aisles are soooo narrow and things are packed in...and it really doesn't help that people are so unhelpful and rude!! You get dirty looks if you bump into anything (i do very regularly) and no one will hold the doors open for you...am now an expert @ getting through doors alone with a pram..almost decline help when it's offered...am polite though...i smile and say thank you..most people just grunt...is so depressing!!
I agree re wheelchairs..must be a nightmare! and blind people with canes or guide dogs as there are so many obstacles...i was on my own in tesco recently and some daft men had left duvet sets all over the floor in the baby isle...maybe they thought it was a little used aisle? I couldn't get near anything (with a 7 month old i neeeed baby items) asked them how long till they moved the stuff...half an hour they said!!!!! yeah right im not standing waiting to get baby stuff..so dumped trolly then went to complain to customer services who said they'd sort it....when i asked...as soon as we can..so we went somewhere else...oooh rant over!!
