when I was younger and broke and in a rage at the expense of the place.
Take that nerds!
Now I don't nick that much apart from at self serve checkouts
Wouldn't steal money off another person, because i know that's wrong, but if i found money on the floor (not in someone's house, but in a shop, the street, work, etc) i'd pocket it and keep quiet. Most people would, really. Can't really be arsed getting backslaps off the internet pretending otherwise.
Have swiped things a few times, like when walking past shops or companies, etc, something's just left there, i know it's worth a few quid, i'm gonna try to make a run for it. If it just belonged to a person, though, nah, that's a bit low.
Weirdly, i've been stopped on suspiscion of shoplifting quite a few times. Never once had i actually taken anything. Must just look a bit shifty.
Stole a table from a pub
managed to outfit their entire kitchen with glasses, flatware, etc. that they had stolen from the dining hall slowly over time. STUDENT BANTS.
Beyond those I'd imagine few people on here over a the age of 25 haven't installed an unlicensed copy of MS Office on their computer.
Actual physical stuff? Not sure I've ever stolen anything.
I must have more copied stuff on cassette than as illegit mp3s. Have one ripped film I didn't buy, used for learning German. Haven't installed MS Office, hooky or otherwise, since the 20th century. Used cracked copies of Photoshop, 3DS Max and AutoCAD* etc when I needed them for uni stuff in the mid 2000s, though. Not that copyright infringement = theft, obv.
*My last workplace was running the same cracked version of CAD that I was using at uni in '97, the massive cheapskates.
Not into robbing. Did get tempted to nab a monitor this week from what was basically a PC graveyard at work. Thought better of it.
One thing I can think of that I've done and kinda wish I hadn't is finding and keeping a mobile phone (Nokia changey fascia jobber in '99) that had been left on a train on the way back from Berlin. I said that if it rang before I got to the airport I'd answer it and arrange it's return. Then it rang and I went back on that and kept it. Naughty.
Yeah, that's right: one lousy, STINKING, GRAPE!
Got charged £190, told the woman she charged me a bit too much, she had a look and said "oh sorry, I put the jacket through twice", thus removing a £50 jacket off the bill.
Probably should have told her but oh well.
Sometimes it would be so easy, like when you try something on in a shop and there's no-one there to give you a little number tag. Or even just slipping stuff in your pockets in the supermarket.
anything you can get from there please
i stole the Guiness World Records from a service station in Scotland
definitely. there's always room for another pint glass.
once I stole a double CD of Radiohead's 2001 South Park show, and went back half an hour and asked if he had it. stall man got really angry when he couldn't find it :D
all the CDs were pirates, why should i care?
I bought some stuff and was throwing it I'm my rucksack at the till, but when I got outsideI realised that the naan hadn't scanned my chewing gum before I'd pocketed it.
I'm not racist. I've got loads of bready friends.
but i used to rob the bastard out of sainsburies at uni. Steaks + fruit smoothies mostly, sometimes sunglasses
I was raised correctly.
we had big arguments about it because she'd 100% deluded herself into believing it wasn't hurting anybody and she got angry when i tried to explain how stealing champagne from M&S is not a victimless crime.
my dad tried to teach me how to steal charms, badges and keyrings that they attach to jeans in fenwicks once and that didn't go down well with me.
would very much like to get into stealing food items from major supermarket chains, though. i need shrewbie to show me the ropes.
just walked over, picked up the book and walked off. Madness.
