My deepest darkest secret. So ashamed. But here's the truth
Also if one more person tells me that I am the SOLE reason prices are so high for the rest of you I'm going to scream. I get it.
I've stolen well over $20,000 worth of merchandise and food from local stores. I've never been caught and most of the time I steal because I cannot fathom spending the amount of money they are asking for (especially when stealing is so easy for me. I have to say when I started it was because I didn't have the money for some things. But even after I had money it was just too easy to continue stealing) We now have money now so it's no longer an issue of affordability. Honestly, if you can think of an item, I've probably stolen it...Clothes, household items, baby stuff, food, toys, kitchen items, sheets, gifts (Christmas, bday, wedding, baby showers), cleaning supplies, picture frames, towels, purses, dishes, anything small enough and pricy enough to be returned for store credit to buy things too big to steal, shoes, hygiene products, paint supplies, cabinet pulls and hinges, pet supplies, school supplies... The list is literally endless. Also, I'm in the choir and teach a children's class at my church. I've even stolen multiple items for different church functions. My sister is the only person who knows this. DH is even clueless.
I have even walked right passed LP and security with $100's in merchandise, often. But I can walk into any store and within a matter of minutes know exactly where the camera's blind spots are. I have even called the store I was in to report others as to divert the attention away from myself. If they're busy chasing someone else they won't be watching me. I know this is horrible but it is what it is. I've also worked in retail and can spot a shoplifter a mile away. I never reported them. but there have been times that I've let them know I saw them stealing. I'm so ashamed, I wish I knew someone else who was like me that I could talk to.
Btw I've never stolen money. Nor have I ever stolen from a person. Also, no I'm not making this up or trolling nor will I "post a pic or it's not real".
