  • No, because I'm against stealing. It's not about the stores though. I have a friend who sometimes shoplifts small stuff like chocolate bars and never gets caught. His argument is that big supermarket chains don't give a shit about this type of small-scale shoplifting (he doesn't shoplift clothes or electronics). And he's right. Big supermarkets throw away thousands of tons of food that is still perfectly edible. I don't feel bad for them being robbed of a few bucks. However, I do care about the principle of not stealing. It's a norm we all have to adhere to if we want to live in a peaceful and functioning society. For the same reason, I wouldn't ever kill anyone, even if I hate that person. There's certain ethical principles we have to hold high. If we don't, it will never be possible to live together in a respectful, peaceful way. This is why I don't steal. I don't care about the big supermarkets and their financial loss, I care about the ethical principle of honesty.

  • When I was a little girl, around 9 or so, I remember stealing a small sweety/candy from a shop. I ended up telling my mom and she made us go back to pay for it. I felt very bad and learned my lesson. ^^

  • Yes but I only take things from my school because I think I shouldn't have to pay $2 for a stupid little bag of chips or a bottle of water with my lunch when they charge you several thousand dollars for the meal plan

  • Once in high school, never again though. Shoplifting is stupid, if you can't afford something then you better get a job.

  • A long time ago I remember I had stolen a few CDs that came with books at a local bookstore. It was strategy guides for various PC games and they were popular at the time.
