  • LOL That is hilarious! Yes, I would definitely go along with that for my kid's punishment. I heard about a kid in KY a few years ago (I live really close to KY but I'm in VA) that stole condoms from a Walmart. He had to sit outside Walmart at a booth holding a sign that said, "I stole condoms from this Walmart" lol. I don't know if it was just one day, or several, but I thought that was really funny, too.

  • I personally think it is a funny, unique punishment. Kudos to the store owner for trying to prevent criminal charges.. Hopefully the shoplifter learned their lesson.

  • Yes I would, a charge would leave the ten scarred for life, actually it is a great idea!

  • Depends on how old the child is...If the child is like 9 and under probably not if older community service..

  • well imo 18 yo is an adult so i would have called the cops. and i don't see what bert has to do with shoplifting lol, but it was nice of the shop owner to do that instead of putting him in jail.

  • Yes. That would be kind compared to what I would want to do to him.
