No I haven't although I did used to pull apples of a tree out of someone's garden, where the branches extended into the public pathway as a child.

Not that is necessarily a positive, I had all I could want and needed from childhood.
So never needed to.
From Grandparents, Parents and much older Brothers and family.
I consider myself extremely fortunate in life.

However, there's many who out of desperation or for other reasons, take something not theirs.
Even in the profession I'm in, I can understand the taking of something by others.

I don't condone wilful stealing with and for no reason.
However, I never jump to judge because some of the worst theft and stealing from people is done by businesses.

I knew of a newsagents, who bought in a range of chocolates.
They weren't selling, so he collared the sales rep he took them from.
They were near sell by dates.
So he was given a full refund for the lot.
Told to just bin them as they couldn't be sold to another outlet now.
Yet he, as they were in wrappers, piled them into jars, sold them that way in smaller weights.

Now is that good business or who is really robbing who?.
I know what I call it UNNECESSARY greed.

Me and my friends did go through a bit of a shoplifting phase when we were 14/15. It was always more for 'the thrill' really taking small things like chocolate, drinks etc but I feel quite guilty about it now. I was caught once with a guy saying he saw me put something in my pocket but I managed to wing it by pointing to a random displaced item on a shelf and saying it was that but I'd decided to put it back

I used to steal from the canteen in school/college sometimes and the odd thing from the shop like a drink or chocolate bar when I was a kid.

I mean technically downloading a film is "stealing" sooo...

But I don't think I've ever stolen from a shop other than by accident (I have a few times come out of Tesco after using self checkout and found something at the bottom of the trolley that clearly didn't get paid for). My eldest, when she was a baby, went through a phase of grabbing stuff off shelves at the supermarket and hiding them in her buggy and we'd find them when we got home .

Luckily for you Nicky, it's a bit of a "grey area" in the Netherlands so you're probably OK . They did change the rules a little but I think it's still mostly fine there - I used to VPN the Netherlands . I go Switzerland now because file sharing is just flat-out legal there. The US and the UK have been very strict about it in recent years.

I was bullied into stealing sweets from woolworths as a kid and cried all the way home...I ate the sweets though l. Stole a lipstick from work when I was 17 to get back at my div of a boss.
Oh and I accidently stole a chicken once as it was under my coat and only found it when getting in the taxi on the way home haha!
But that's it, can't be security supervisor on the rob can I?

Stolen sweets and stuff in my early teens. One time one of the local newsagents reopened but they had no CCTV in the shop at all. My friend borrowed a pair of his brothers joggers and tucked the bottom of them into his socks and literally just started grabbing whatever was near and put it down his trousers whilst me and a couple other friends were chatting to the guy on the till to keep him busy. Then we’d just buy a can of drink each and walk out.

Stole crates of beer from Asda, Morrison’s a few times when I was 18. Me and my friends were amazed to know that the detectors by the doors didn’t seem to work on crates of beer so we’d buy one crate and then hand someone the receipt, go back in get another and just walk out without paying. Think we managed to get 5 or 6 at one time once.

It’s not something we’re particularly proud of now that we are older but we do sit and reminisce and have a little giggle about it on the odd time when we all meet up together

I stole my friends copy of The Sims 3 once. Mess.

He said he didn't play it anymore and I really wanted to but I was shy about asking if I could borrow it.

we had a phase of that too, i usually spotted it at the checkout thinking why on earth do we need this

I will amend my ways, TIBB has shown me the true path

Ahhh I used to... Umm... "sneaky borrow" games from one of my friends! He was a weirdo and didn't like people borrowing his stuff, said his parents didn't like people borrowing anything, so I knew from experience he'd never let me borrow games even if he was finished them and never going to look at them again. He had TONNES of games though, any vaguely big new game that came out, his parents bought it for him whereas I had to save up pocket money forever. So I used to sneak the discs out of the cases when he wasn't looking and pocket them, play them for a few weeks until I was done with them, then sneak them back.

He never found out and I always returned them, it was more like a secret library. A victimless crime .

...I don’t know why it popped into my head this morning but I steal stuff from hotels.../..little soaps/shampoos/hand creams etc from the bathroom...well not anymore because I never used them, so they just kept collecting and sitting there and I think that I gave them all away for someone else to collect...there’s something really lovely about miniature/small things, like they need to be taken and looked after because they’re so tiny.../...I don’t know what the psychology of it all is...

When I was about 13/14/15 me and my friends used to get the bus to Chester and we normally had £20 each so bus fare, maccys and something cheap from new look or whatever but we kinda got into the habit of stealing jewellery from like Claire's and stuff like that, soon stopped when one of us was caught and the police came and took her home. Never ever again we were all petrified after that
