Be honest ............

have you ever shop lifted? On purpose or by accident? My mom once, she used a scooter to get around (her feet were bad - diabetes) and we were in Sam's Club or Home Depot (I can't remember) when we got out to the parking lot (waaaaaaaaaaaay out to the parking lot) she looked down to lock the brakes and saw she had a .69 cent bottle of windshield wiper fluid at her feet. She never had it rang up, she'd forgotten about. She was too embarrassed to go back in. I teased her for years for it!

  • Yes, on accident I grabbed two of those kiddie pools at walmart meaning to grab only one. I went back the next day, told them to ring one up for me and left empty handed.

  • i used to "sample" the candy at the grocery store where they have it in bins. I was about 5 or so. I have never deliberately shop lifted though.

  • Yes, on accident.
    It was winter and I tend to wear big baggy hoodies. I was in Clairs (a jewelry store) and was in a tight corner. This lady tried to squeeze past me and I backed into one of the towers with earrings and knocked a bunch off. I picked them up along with one of the girls working there. Bought what I wanted and left. Hours later when i got home and took my hoody off three packs of earrings, each having 8 pairs fell out of the hood part. I guess when I backed into it they fell in (I'm short).
    I was sooo embarrassed that the next day I went back and snuck them back onto the rack. I didn't think they would believe that it was an accident. lol

  • When I was a little girl I took a Styrofoam round ball ($.15) from a hardware store and start poking at it an tearing it a part. When I got outside with my Grandma she asked me where I got it and I told her and she made me go back and pay for the destroyed Styrofoam ball.
