Have you ever stolen anything?

I’ve gone through phases where I do. I used to shoplift before there were cameras everywhere. The trick was to go when it was really busy and the staff was distracted.

Dine and dash has always been hard to pull off, but I did it once. Taking Amazon packages was the thing for a while, until everyone got doorbell cameras.

Lately, I’ve gotten into taking things from people’s homes when I’m visiting. Small things that will likely go unnoticed for a long time. Usually something from the bathroom, since you have privacy in there.

I was a prolific shoplifter in my youth. I made off with over $3k from a Nordstrom one afternoon, just because. Interestingly, the urge to steal left me around 25 and I’ve never done it since.

$3k in merchandise, I should clarify.

One good trick is to load up items on the bottom of your cart, something flat like a big screen TV. People never check the bottom, especially if you put heavy items in your cart that covers the view of the bottom.

Dine and dash is pretty easy to pull off. The trick is to always leave a cash tip. When waiters see cash on the table they just assume the bill has already been settled and pockets the cash without thinking about it. Also you have to take the check with you so the waiter will think someone already took it to the register. If you leave the check on the table, the waiter will know it hasn’t been paid yet.

My mother was a righteous woman. I never saw her so much as drive 5 miles over the speed limit. At five or six I stole a pack of gum from the grocer, and the second she found out, she marched me back inside and made me apologize to the cashier.

Cut to 25 years later, by this point I have a good job and decide to treat mom to an afternoon of lunch and shopping. We have a lovely time and spend awhile browsing at Saks Off Fifth. When we walk out, mom slips a pair of oversized Cavalli sunglasses out of her purse and puts them on. I say “wow, those are fancy - not to mention very unlike you - where did you get them?” She says “they must have fallen in there,” and winks.

To this day, I maintain it was the strangest and most out of character thing I ever saw her do.

Then I will take all the bagged groceries out to my car and then go inside and tell the customer service worker I bought the wrong cheese and return the four for a full refund. It is a great way to be able to afford expensive cheese.

The lowest of the thieving scum are home health aides who rob elderly bed bound patients.

An elderly aunt was robbed of some old glassware items which were over 50-70 years old. They were passed on from my late grandmother, the items were in the family for many years. These trashy aides were essentially stealing my cousin's inheritance. It was not about the worth of those items, but about the fact that you are trusting these trashy uncaring women. These women are there to work, not to shop in a patient's home or apartment.

You have to be pretty damn ow to steal from sick elderly people. Even worse, is when the patient isn't exactly rich and is as poor as the home aides who are stealing from them.

Windows stuck shut that hadn’t been cleaned or opened for 30 years, kitchen counters that hadn’t seen a scrub pad since 1972, carpets caked so crunchy like tile, stashed canned goods dated 1983, refrigerators that had never, ever been cleaned since installation (I found a Nembutal suppository dated 1962), ceiling-high stacks of empty cereal boxes, feces covered paper towels stuffed in a corner, I could go on and on.

He seemed to not have concern about getting caught. He ended up dying young of cancer. He was unusually thin throughout his life and he believed it allowed him to steal effectively because he would put stuff in his clothes and appear to be normal weight. Weird.

Actually they were all foreigners, your guess was wrong. FYI, the 'hue' was somewhat correct but none of these aides were African-American. I do notice the foreign home aides are the most devious, for example, the Jamaicans despise African-Americans, they call them Yankees! The Guyanese aides are also extremely crafty and total liars and thieves.

One Guyanese aide accepted my aunt's neighbor's TV delivery, then, she was trying to steal the TV! The neighbor was left a message by UPS that the TV was delivered to my aunt, the neighbor got her TV, otherwise, I'm pretty sure that TV would have gone home with the Guyanese aide.

The foreign aides also act as if they don't understand English, but most do.

The thieving morons here still don't get it, when you steal, stores then raise prices, then, the honest people who shop in those stores end up paying MORE for their items.

I shop a lot for my elderly mom, I've noticed the shelves in most chain drugstores in her neighborhood, are now almost empty. My mom lives in a gentrifying neighborhood, where rents are now quite high.

I spoke to the managers of both Rite Aid and Walgreens, they told me, "The thieves are so bold these days, they take the store baskets, fill it, then walk out of the store. WALK not run!" For some reason, the security cannot stop this scum, they allow them to walk out. I asked why, the managers told me, "Security cannot lock the doors, keep the thief in the store and call 911, they are told to not to do this in order ro protect the customer these thieves, might have gun or a knife."

Even if the shelves have locked plastic doors, some thieves have keys!

About two weeks ago, I witnessed some druggie looking woman fill a plastic bag with candy, she simply walked out of Walgreens, she also had items bulging from her coat pockets! The security guy stood there, he did nothing.

Why do stores continue to hire security, especially if they cannot detain these disgusting thieves?

My grift was in my younger days back in the early 90's, when I had a part time job at a gas station/convenience store. The general manager would only come in about once a month to take inventory of everything. I (actually we, several others working there were doing this too) would simply ring up other random items in the store as instant lotto tickets. The receipts were so generic, they didn't specifically line item and describe everything being rung up.

I was typically taking in ~$300 or so per week doing this.

Well, I didn’t want pizza but I did like the full tank of gas and various six packs and sometimes laundry detergent I’d take. They had no security cameras. Another employee was pocketing cash payments. I wouldn’t do that - but I never had to pay much for gas the year or two I worked there.

I left when the store got new owners who decided to amateur work on the gas lines going in. The store never blew sky-high, but I wanted nothing to do with country repairs on something like that!

Apparently the bitch got a whole suit that way, but only paid for like a $40 shirt or something. The suit was some designer label that would have been 2-3K otherwise (I can't remember which one).

I'm pretty sure that bitch stole my VCR too. Never let that queen go any of your valuables!

Not as much as I used to, but I still rob houses.

I know right from wrong. I don't steal. I would have crippling guilt if I stole anything. Bad karma, man.

At the Pavillions grocery store in WeHo on Santa Monica Blvd, there are guys who go in with huge duffel bags and FILL them. They don’t rush. They walk all over and get exactly what they want. Then they walk right by the security guard who is dressed in black and posed to look tough. The security does nothing. It creepy to see it. The first time I saw it I was shocked and took a photo of the their walking past the security as they pulled three huge full black duffel bags out of the cart and walked right past the guard.

Fifty years ago I stole an old book from a bookstore. It still bothers me.

I did in the late 80's and 90's when I was in my late teens and twenties. Not a lot or anything really expensive. Stuff like makeup, cheap jewelry, even candy once. The most expensive thing was a baby doll dress when they were in style in the 90s. I took 3 dresses to try on and shoved one in my purse. I also, had a friend who worked at Claire's Boutique and he would let me take stuff. He also pierced my ears for free. The last time I stole something, a wallet, I got caught. Talk about humiliating! I had to pay a fine. After that never stole again.

My mom did that too and then would sell the shit on eBay. That’s how we afforded school lunches.

I really feel I am providing Macy's a favor by stealing their sweaters and wearing them. When people ask I tell them I got them at Macy's. I am providing free advertising.

[quote]Costco is easier to swipe things at then you would think. Just go after church on a Sunday and pick up one expensive item. Then walk past one of the cashiers. They are too busy to notice. Then walk over to returns and it will appear you are taking the item back and just mumble something about the line being too long. No one is paying attention at the entrance door.

Guess this depends on where the Costco is located, but this sounds quite far-fetched. In my state, when the Costco greeter sees an item in your cart upon you entering, they ask if you are returning it, they then proceed to put an orange sticker on the item, they will then direct you to the Customer Service/Returns desk.

Basically, you are full of shit, especially as no one can walk out the entrance door when they are leaving the store. If you try that, the entrance door greeter will definitely ask you for a receipt. A customer can't even enter through the out door, your story is total bullshit.

There's so much bullshit and lying in this thread, most of you need to take a creative writing course!

How do you steal from the hot bar?

by Anonymousreply 129March 24, 2023 4:43 PM

I find a new looking receipt from home, then go to Whole Foods, put the food I want into the food box, then position the receipt on top of the box and walk out the store. The receipt creates the appearance that I’ve already paid. Sometimes I’ll have a credit card on top of it.

The key to any sort of stealing is to not try to conceal what you’re taking. Find a way to make it look natural that you’re just walking out with it.

Tried to steal a guy’a heart, but his lack of experience and OCD were too much.
