Leroy Merlin's current advertising campaign aimed at parents made us smile. Posters up around the store and leaflets to take away and read at leisure (!) warn of the dangers lurking there...
......the cars on the car park, the sliding doors at the store entrance, the sharp things, heavy things, toxic things and cutting things, the risk of choosing the wrong trolley...
Parents are advised, if possible, to:
"prenez....un chariot dote d'un *siege enfant" (take a trolley with child seat).
Then comes the really silly bit: parents are told if they observe all these guidelines they can conduct their shopping "sereinement"..
Now call me lacking in imagination, but serene is not a word I would ever have used to describe my emotions whilst shopping with children in tow.
*Interestingly the French word "siege" has two meanings, namely seat and siege... Yes; that speaks volumes!
