- Snaps of fed-up children shared on social media by amused parents
- Capture little ones napping in trolleys and playing in the cereal aisle
- Other children head for the shop window in the hope of being rescued
The weekly supermarket shop is a chore few people look forward to – and it can be even more arduous with kids in tow.
But spare a thought for the children, who have to endure trawling the aisles under the watchful eye of fraught parents, all while being told to ‘be quiet’ and ‘put that back’.
Many of the bored tots captured in these photos shared on social media have resorted to entertaining themselves, either by escaping to the electronics aisle to watch television, or building a fort from cereal boxes.
Some desperate girls and boys were snapped leaning against shop windows in the vain hope a passerby might rescue them from their supermarket hell, while others, resigned to their fate, are seen curling up in trolleys to sleep until the ordeal is over.
