that, and Internet
Have you ever been tempted by a DVD player, maybe a desktop computer?
this does remind me, though, that I effectively stole a laptop from my last job when I left.
meals out - Expenses scandal!
I work in a school.
Hardly bought any for the four years I have been living in London.
I once got stopped by Police for buying drugs in Brixton (it was a case of mistaken identity) and when they asked if there was anything I had in my bag that I shouldn't I nearly said 'the toilet roll I stole from work' but decided to just keep quiet instead.
I don't drink the Coke cans in the fridge, and everybody else has about 10 a week so the toilet roll is my Coke. If they put Lilt in the fridge then maybe I would stop with the bog roll.

Let the lake of love flow.
2 nite let’s become one soul!
I went through a phase of taking loads of our corporate branded mints, but I soon realised they don't actually taste that good so I stopped.
of colouring in off the internet.
I also photocopy entire cookbooks (double-sided though, and I try to do them two up if it won't make the print too small).
Lots of pens obviously. Unfortunately CD-R/DVD-Rs are not available to me. Lots of diaries that I never use anyway.
I'd feel too guilty.
What a pussy.
plectrums and guitar strings
her department merged with another university and the new uni didn't want them to bring their computers with them, even though they were brand new. It wasn't clear what was going to happen to their computers so she just took hers home.
and therefore, strictly speaking, not owned by me but by my work. I left about a year later and took it with me, which is kind of standard practice but nevertheless not proper procedure. Was never chased up about it, though.
