    Where, when and what? :eek:

    Do you have klepto proclivities or was it a one time thing?

    Yes, I did, it happened many times when I was younger, it was my choice, I used free will even though I knew it was wrong and that God would not approve.
    Stole toy cars, pens, candy, cigarettes, soda pops, books. Eventually I got past it and no longer do those things.

    I've only ever stolen shoplifted one thing in my life, and that was a tuxedo-pattern man thong.

    I'm being deadly serious. I still have it to this day!

    EDIT: I realised I am actually wearing aforementioned thong in my avatar.

    During university days I would go to the grocery store, take food stuffs from the shelves and then sneak them into the Food Bank bin.

    As a matter of fact this past weekend I went to my favorite home and hardware store with the intent of buying one of these.... KitchenAid Mixer Thumb Screw (Black) - 9709194
    So I went to the section that sold the Kitchen Aid mixers and unscrewed the part to take to the hardware department to show them what I needed. So after I bought it. I put the one that I borrowed in my pocket intending to put it back on the mixer on my way out of the store. Well I ran into someone I know and we got to talking (can you see where this is going?) Long story short we went for coffee and I forgot about the thumbscrew in my pocket until I got home. I went back the next day and turned myself in and told them what happened.
    I have cleared my good name and can walk into the store with my head held high again.

    I've remember stealing some pick 'n' mix from Woolworths when I was very young. Apart from that, I can't think of anything.

    When I was in the 8th grade, I stole some candy a few times.

    Ten years ago, I bought a handful of CDs and the shop assistant forgot to charge me for one of them (Natalie Imbruglia "White Lillies Island") - but I didn't say anything.

    A few weeks ago, I bought two CD storage cases but was only charged for one - once again I said nothing.....

    Apart from sampling grapes and cherries at the grocery store I don't shoplift now.

    I did steal Playgirl magazines from the local drug store when I was a teen...it was fuel for my over active curiosity for naked guys, until I got caught by the manager and was banned from the store for life. I think he felt bad for me as I had a Playgirl under my shirt rather than a Playboy or Penthouse. He probably thought I was so nervous I lifted the wrong magazine so he didn't call the cops. It was still very traumatic, yet I still remember fondly the thrill of looking at those Playgirl magazines and beating off to them.

    Yes I did when I was a kid and I got caught at the grocery store. The manager of the store had been watching me and just as I was leaving the store he asked to see what was in my hand. I opened my hand and there was some candy in it and then he asked me to open my jacket and there was the bag of M&M's. I was so upset and cried the whole time...I had two choices...He would call the Police or my Mother. I took the call to my Mother. Surprisingly she did not as mad as I thought but she was really disappointed in me which in retrospect was much worse. Never did it again after that!

    We used to have this store called Winn Dixie and they had a thing of candy where you would scoop up candy and put it in a bag and buy it. When I was about 4 or 5 I was tall enough to reach it, so I would take a gummy worm or two while my mom would be shopping around.
    Wednesday I was at a restaurant with a few friends and we had ordered chips and salsa...we each had separate checks and nobody had the salsa on theirs...we didn't say anything. oops.
