As I understand it...... it is a yes and no kind of answer. Can you be stopped, absolutely. An employee can do anything they want. Will they stop you.... that is pretty unlikely. Most stores have a policy to only stop you while you are actively lifting. However, if LP recognize you from a previous lift, successful or not, they will approach you and ask you to leave the store . This will usually be followed by a trespass. If they have you on camera concealing or leaving the store they will just turn the information over to PD to process.

To be safe you should not lift from the same store in such a short period of time.

This sucks. You are likely taking tools from trades people who needs those tools to earn a wage. And more than likely they will not have insurance on the tools. And if they do have insurance I highly doubt it will be full replacement costs.

You are going to hurt someone's financial well being. Please don't do this.

You are going to need sockets, wrenches, and maybe allen wrenches.

I am not sure about the AC. I had the fix my heat and it was a nightmare. I disassembled so much that I did not know or understand. But I need to replace my heater core. I am not sure if the heater core provides both heating and cooling.

If you have an older car and need reference materials let me know.

Mentally, not doing well. I appear to be suffering from a major case of imposter syndrome. I need to change how I evaluate my life. I am learning and hopefully doing better but at the end of the day I don't feel like I have really helped myself or others.

Emotionally I am pretty fucked up. My friends are suffering and I don't know what I can do to help. It hurts to watch them suffer. I know they want and need help but I don't know what to do or say when someone's family are fucking religious hypocrites and then hurt their kids because they are transphobic.

Physically I am broken this week. My legs, back, shoulders and neck are sore as hell. I constantly have to tell myself to keep my shoulders back and bend at the knee not the waist. I am disappointed with how physically weak I am. I have next to zero testosterone. I started taking shots but I am not seeing any difference. I am willing to bet the average 13 year old could kick my ass.

Overall I do feel good. I helped build a huge 1/2 acre garden. Harvested and donated 16 pounds of squash. I have about 300 seeds starting to show their first leaf. I have just about every manual tool I need to help me be more efficient in my garden. And just about reached my savings goal for a truck.

I need to find a new job so I can be in a better financial position. I would like to stop lifting so I can remove that constant fear that today may be the day I get caught.

I feel fucking awesome that I have found this space, people are helpful, I feel I learn so much from reading posts, and I beyond over joyed with the motivation comments people have sent. For once in my life I feel I can be honest, vulnerable, and feel safe that someone cares enough to send me messages that help me feel good about my life.

First off, what kind of grill are you looking to procure?

If you are interested in a standard 24" Weber style grill I would stick with Walmart. Time your exit to when the greeters are occupied.

If you are wanting something like a Green Egg or a Komodo this is going to be really hard. I helped someone wheel out the small Green Egg from Ace. If you can find an Ace where the garden section is next to the grills and the key and repair area are at the opposite end of the store you should be able to push it out and then exit the garden area. Again, this is super risky.

If you want something like a Traeger this is what I would suggest. Lift a couple items and return them for around $200 credit. Find the zip ties that match the ones on the grill. Cut the ties from a cheaper smoker grill combo machine and the Traeger. Switch the tags and go through the garden area to buy the Traeger.

Have you ever tried to cut one of these cables? They are about 14mm thick, multi braided strands of metal. I took a pair of 36" bolt cutters and I could snap the cable.

Have you setup a server and shared on i2p? I have a lot of material on permaculutre that I want to share but I keep running into technical difficulty. I started with Linux and hit package errors. Tried a Windows server and hit Java issues.

I should post my issues in f/piracy.. sorry for hijacking your post.

I am working on something similar to this.

I have found an area north of me where I can buy an acre of land for around 18k. I am slowing saving up so I can purchase three acres. I would love to hit 6-10 acres and have a pond but I think that is well beyond my current budget and I would like to get started with this before 2030.

I would suggest volunteering on farms. Check out permies.com. Gardening is one thing but being able to use the land for maximum benefit takes a lot of hands on experience and heavy equipment. Myself and three others built a swale with a hugelkultur that was 60 feet long. We busted our asses and broke our backs over two weeks with everyone putting in a solid 8-12 hours every day. I would never do this again and I highly recommend you learn how to use a skid-steer with tracks.

After you learn more about land start picking up skills in woodworking, metal fabrication, and electronics. Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity for a few weeks over several years and can you learn enough to build your own home.

If you have an hour or more check out this site: https://www.opensourceecology.org

Slowly form friendships where you can both learn and teach skills with each other. I am diving pretty hardcore in land management and permaculture. I have a friend who is learning about timber framing and other friend who is learning welding and metal fabrication. Every few weeks we get together and work on someone's project and exchange knowledge.

I am sorry if you were not looking for advice. I just love talking and learning about everything associated with surviving based on my own skill-sets.

I only shoplift to help with food. I don't feel comfortable with electronics and don't wear designer clothes....... so most of my shoplifting is to keep me from starving and helping me learn to feed myself and others.

Helped planting and mulching 1/2 acre garden.

Note to self....... never do this again unless you have a tractor or some other heavy equipment.

Was able to pick and donate 16lbs of squash to a local food bank. Fall harvest is going to be a beast.

I picked up an Ego Power battery operated from HD. I found one location that did not have it in spider wrap. Took it to a row that did not have cameras. Dumped all the packaging inside of a large flower pot at the bottom of the stack. Then I walked the saw over to the rental desk and asked them if they fix battery tools then walked out through the contractor door.

It is not a good practice to leave the packaging around. I went back several days, cut up the box and just walked out through garden with it.
