If I want I can rest my foot during long lines checking out of the grocery store E.Leclerc. Now, I won’t look silly trying to put my foot up on air. Usually, French carts have no “footrest”.

Funny how you like it. I’m used to carts without the footrest, and now my legs always hit the metal bar, which hurts. It happened to me last time I went grocery shopping.
Leclerc put a protection for the Frenchies like me who can’t walk right with it! Aren’t they nice? Sacre Jean-edouard, va!
Actually, the footrest shown in the picture looks more like a little dispoal for items like milk than a footrest.
Jube, When shopping at the grocery in the States I put my foot up on the bottom rack which is really for milk or pop or whatever you want that is heavy or big. I miss it when I am in France but love the French grocery stores. ;)
This is the best: I was at Monoprix the other evening (where the carts *don’t* have footrests) and I attempted to put a whole case of Evian down on the footrest, like I do at home, and it just crashed to the floor. Everyone gaped at me…I was *so* embarrassed.
Smelly Eric’s (as we call it) think of everything. Do you have the kid’s trollies so impatient kids can play shopping? At our local Eric’s, they tell us to wear more clothes (don’t like women in strappy or bikini tops, it appears). Not me, my wife.
Roger, They do have the tiny carts for kids. We don’t allow our childen to push them. It would be more like bumper cars at the amusement park than grocery shopping.
I can’t believe they tell your wife to wear more clothes! Usually the French are more open.
