Do you shoplift? Have you ever? How did you feel about yourself afterwards?

I've never shoplifted in my life. I imagine I'd feel awful about it if I ever did. In terms of there being a functional reason such as needing something and being unable to acquire it...I've never had that happen. If I didn't have the money for something then I just saved up till I did.

Asking this because there seems to be a huge cultural thing to this subject...and so I'm kinda curious about it. It seems like people do it less because of wanting something for free...and more for some kind of 'thrill.' Who knows.

Just curious to read what other people think about this.

Note: I'm not pretending to be better or worse than anyone. I'm genuinely curious about the subject and realize that just because I don't get it doesn't mean its just some open shut black/white issue. Tho I am kinda curious how it could be anything other than right/wrong, lol.

Never.

One time my mom dropped me off at a gas station to run in and get a drink. I was being adhd and I grabbed the drink and walked straight out...forgetting to pay for it. I felt so bad when I realized it later that I had her let me go back in and pay for it on the way back.

That's the closest I've ever come to stealing. I don't even taste grapes in the grocery store without buying the whole bunch.

Can only think of one case, actually mentioned in one of my "stories". When I was at a gamestop; ready to purchase Megadimension Neptunia the new employee mistook my power up card as an actual debit/credit. I just kinda walked off without saying a word.

But I don't steal deliberately. Mildly hypocritical considering what I just said, but Gamestop screwed me over one to many times. So I like to consider this payback.

Also F!*# those stickers they put on new games! So irritating to remove that residue! >_<

No I haven't.
I even worked at a grocery stole where I easily could've accidentally grabbed a drink and gone to the break room forgetting to pay, but I never did, even after being there over 2 years.

I once went to Froyo and the girl working there forgot to scan my water bottle, but I've never intentionally shoplifted anything.

Yes? No? My siblings lost the nozzle on my squirt bottle, I went down to get a new one from the Dollar Tree. I was going to buy an entirely new one and was ready to do so until people in front of me started screaming and beating their kid.. I wanted to get out of there so I put it back and coincidentally found a broken one unscrewed the nozzle and left. I felt bad.. :c

@carbyken How long ago was this D:? The new system and old, would never let that happen. Unless the moron typed it in as a cash amount, it should've never gone through if the card was swiped.. Money was taken from somewhere.. odd.
Aside from that, stickers aren't placed on new games. New games have a film over them without any stickers, boxed editions also don't have stickers. Pre-owned does however, the stickers are far less goopy and super easy to remove now (snag a corner and rip) then how they used to be- unless you leave it in the sun. But, ultimately, payback not needed, the company is doomed to die in the next five years as it is. (:

Im a seasoned thief, even hit a few homes and businesses in my spree. Shoplifting is pretty low brow but still happens sometimes. I particularly like to relieve ppl i dont like of their valuables so its easily justified to myself. Tbh shops are probably one of the worst places to steal from whether they are small business or corporate, i dont see much pleasure in them losing assets. Those with personal beef or a particularly schemey business or political record though better check their locks twice and keep those alarms triggered
