Have You Ever Shoplifted?

did you feel guilty afterwards?
Sorry if there was already a topic about this? I googled it and nothing came up so...ta-da!

Anyway, how many soompiers out there have ever shoplifted at least once in their life? Did your guilty conscience force you to go back to the store and buy double the amount of something just to make up for the shoplifting?

I'm guilty of shoplifting during my oh-so-rebellious-i-want-to-be-just-as-cool-as-them stage in 7th grade LOL. It wasn't anything serious though. The priciest thing was probably some lame armwarmer that was way overpriced to begin with. Mainly it was candy and gel bracelets (Hot Topic has really richard simmons security, though I've noticed they've started tagging everything nowadays :P) And I never really felt guilty about it afterwards. The last time I ever took anything was in 7th grade which was 4 years ago. I've grown up enough to realize that taking things from small businesses is pretty harsh to the owners. Plus sooner or later I would've gotten caught so I might as well stop before there's ever a chance, right? Though sometimes there's still that temptation to just take it when there's no tags whatsoever on a certain item (i.e. sunglasses, bracelets, etc.) :X but really? I don't think I'd ever do it again. I hope. :crazy: I just have this thing for free things that call out to me! Free is always nice right? XD

edit: i was just a kid, so don't think I'm a bad person or anything! I seriously pay for everything nowadays T_T

Share your stories, lovelies!

And don't worry, I won't tell on you :D

Yes, When I was in elementary school they had a book sale and their were so many stuff I cna't afford so that was the result. :sweatingbullets: Of course, I regret it now and I no longer steal. In fact now I'm the one trying to prevent my friend from stealing

OMG Me too! I used to in 4th grade, so bad but yeah. Eventually the school found out and we (my friends and i) were in major trouble. I know people that steal clothes and stuff, and I just think to myself if my dad didn't give me that major lashing, I would probably be one of them.

uhhmm, not on purpose.so my mom and i were in this bookshop, i was lookin at this pen and my mom went "come upstairs with me, i gotta get sumthin." so i was like "ok" i pocketed the pen afterwards..and then i only remembered when we were 50 feet away from the store.

LMAO.

my friend accidentally pocketed chips so she went back after a few days to the store and bought the same chips and left them. XD.

I have, but they were really small things. Like an eyeliner sharpener and charms for my phone.

First time I first so guilty and anxious before I even walked out of the store. Second time I felt the same except a little more toned down. Third was like whatever.

Don't think I'll ever steal something bigger than a pen though.

Three of my friends went through this phase of stealing a lot of stuff.

One got caught and was sent to a police station. Don't really know what happened after that.

The other two no longer steal ... though I'm pretty sure one of them does sometimes.

I've been with them when they stole items and they made it look so easy ... I was like, hm ...

Yeah, I shoplifted once when I was 10 years old.

My mom knew that I shoplifted too...cause she told me to "put it in your pocket quickly before anyone sees it" (My mom actually told me to steal it)

Beside, the bracelet didn't have a price tag on it, so we just out like nothing happen.

I hid the bracelet in my pants. xD

lol. So many similarities here. I too shoplifted when I was a kid. Once. It was some toy magnet or something. Felt horrible about it and actually put the stolen booty in the garbage. Never did it again.

Alot of Asians own stores, as my parents did. If your parents owned a store, think about how you'd feel if someone stole from their store.

It's so wrong, and God sees it.
