Interesting. Once when it happened to me at a book store, they said they turned it off because it kept ringing!

Can you stand it????? It really blows my mind! By the way, that was really nice of you to help the man. Coming from poverty, I am very sensitive to situations like that and am compelled to help. Not that it makes up for my thieving ways, but I think our small giving and compassionate acts matter-it may not qualify for the 10 commandments but its human kindness and its important.

Used to work at as a teenager, for sure. I wouldn't feel comfortable if there were people there that I used to know. Do you feel like you know more about the store than the average bear? because that would def be a plus.

Wow, so they retrieved the item from you and then still took your tag number on your car? Yikes. Well I think the son can probably prove it wasn't him if necessary (I feel bad for him.) but Im sure its stressful. Im wondering why they did not apprehend you at the time?

I am laughing at the "liking to chew on the plastic doohickies" lol! Sounds like a pretty solid plan to me. Although there is no way I could put more than one pair of pants on under my own! Not that my own pants are so skin tight, but with my body type somehow I think it would be obvious. I do place three or four items in my purse though. What are your fave places for clothes?

My compulsion definitely stems from growing up in poverty too, I am pretty certain. But when is enough enough, I ask myself. I don't take things that Im not going to use or give away, but I do know the feeling of feeling like I got ripped off if I didn't snag something from a store! Somehow I feel like I would get caught somehow if I took something I didn't truly want or need and I wouldn't want to risk that. Just out of curiosity do you store your items like the bath and body worx items neatly and organized, or are they all over your house?

I always go to the changing room. If someone is there diligently checking the items and counting when you come out, I would not do it. Once while I was in Target, a woman told the fitting room attendant that she had 3 items. The attended counted 4 but did not correct the customer. She then called another team member (security?) and told him she claimed 3 but had 4. He went into the fitting room next to the customer and appeared to be listening for maybe sounds of her de-tagging or something?

Best case scenario is when its an unattended or messy fitting room. I always go in with several outfits (similar colors as what you are going to lift) and only lift 3 out of 10 or so.

I love that you say you were "caught"! You were NOT caught, be thankful lol! It can be very startling when the alarm goes off, but always keep walking. Especially in a drugstore Im sure no one blinks an eye. You probably didn't see a sensor, learn from your mistake. And stay away for a few weeks, better to be safe than sorry.
