Confession is good for the soul allegedly. I am going to make a confession. I am or was a thief. Admittedly it was 40 or so years ago and it didn't make the newspapers, but one afternoon the attraction of a packet of Callard & Bowsers' Butterscotch Toffee caught my eye and I sneaked it into my coat. Unfortunately I got caught. There and then I decided that a life of crime was not for me. So confess all my children. Have you ever stolen? Did you get caught?

I think most of us at one time or another took something that didn't belong to us or something without paying for it. I know i have many times for different reasons when i was a child. but as i tell my children, when you know better you do better. Thank you Lord i know better now

Hey, if confession is good for YOUR soul, darling, then go on ahead and confess, by all means. But I'm pleading the fifth! Throughout my life, when I've gotten it in my head to steal something, I've done it, and I've never gotten caught. It's a terrible thing, but I'm very good at it. It's all in what you steal and how you do it. Remember the scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's where they steal the masks from the five and dime? I would liken my thievery to that. Sale earrings. That's all I'll say. So you've gotten my confession after all, p1ke. What shall my penance be? And my thievery will likely be ongoing, so I would expect my punishment to be too. I await your judgment.

Once when I was 3 I took some chicklet gum. My parents made me take it back-I have never stolen again. I was mortified as a child. I have a feeling my daughter is a theif. She hasnt been caught yet. How do I catch her and stop her before she does get caught?

I guess it depends on why you think that she is a thief and if she is what has she been taking. Is she stealing from stores, or friends, or you? If you cannot prove anything then it may be timely to talk about how disappointed you would be if any of the family were to be caught stealing. The usual moral stuff etc. If she is stealing, then a sharp lesson. Although it is not quite the same thing: When I was about 12 I crossed some railway tracks on a busy main line because I had evaded my train fare. I got caught by a friend's father and later on that evening I was taken to the Station Master's house to apologise to him and pay the fare. I received no allowance for the rest of the month either. I never did it again. Every day I saw the Station Master and he never said a word But we both knew that I had learned a lesson.

talking about stealing,its funny that while growing up one way or the other one would have had to do just that,i remember i do steal cookies and chocolate but never did that in a store before,i wonder how it will be to be caught red handed in a big store,am sure its not a pleasant experience,but i have been caught while helping myself with some meat from the pot of course i tried hiding the hot chunk in my mouth but its too hot i had to spill it out,hahahaah,stealing has its rewards ,isnt it?

I have to admit I once shoplifted a lipstick, now in my own defense I was 9 and my mother adamantly refused to let me even wear a bit of lip gloss and all my young friends were already getting to experiment with their mothers toss away cosmetics. I was with my mother at the five and dime, Ben Franklin at that if anyone happens to remember that store from soo long ago, when I spied a cherry red lipstick display with in my reach. I looked about me and crammed the lipstick into my pants. All was well untill I got home and took off my coat, mother was hanging it up and I proceeded to run off to my room. Well horrors of horrors the package slipped out of my pant leg onto the floor. my ship sunk faster than the Titanic. I was spanked growled at and marched right back to the five and dime only to face more humiliation in front of the manager. Sobbing, I was forced to apologize. I did not hear the end of my little thieving for quite sometime. Yes that was the last time I five fingered anything in my life!

I have stolen a few things from time to time, when I was a child. I came from a family of 8 kids and we were so poor we never got to have any junk food because the money was better spent on food. But occasionally I would steal a candy for Safeway, those bulk ones. One day I got caught stealing one and they phoned the police, just to put a real good scare into me, and it worked. I never stole another candy or anything else for that matter, since. I hate thieves and I don't condone stealing at all, no matter what the reason.

I have never stolen, and I never will. I wouldn't want to risk getting caught, but even more than that, why would I want to or need to steal anyway? If I don't have the money for something, I really ought to save up for it, so that I can aquire what I want, honestly!

No comment!, on the grounds that I may convict myself,..lol Well, I believe that all of us has atleast one point in our lives or another. Whether we were a child or adult, knowingly or unknowingly. A spoon? I wish that is all I got when I got into trouble as a youngster, We always got a switch or a 1x4 inch board accross our hindends if we so much as stepped a toe out of bounds. Which as a child it was hard to toe the line, it usually was my stepdad doing the punishing if he gave you 2 minutes to do something and you took 2-1/2 you got a lesson with the ouch board to pick up your pace next time. And a limb was always handy and in hand. Sometimes even when good we got a swap just because he felt like it if we were walking past. My mom broke up plenty of limbs but being in the country that didn't hlp much. She did burn the whip he got and started using though. Because I was given 2 minutes to get a 1/2 mile and didn't quite make it due to no fault of my own and got a whipping I won't ever soon forget with it. So to stole and get caught at it would have sent the man overboard and we were always told if we did that we would be walked back no matter how far and with every step we would have gained a new stripe with a switch. He has mellowed with age now thankfully but he still has his moments but now I will stand toe to toe and not back down, when I did that when I was 15 I got a punch in the jaw for my troubles. My sister in law though used to use a plastic spatula and wait till right after bathes when they just got out.

Those were the days. I think that anybody that tried that sort of treatment these day would be looking at a 5-10 stretch. Certainly in the UK. But I can see that it was an incentive not to err from the straight and narrow.

Yeah they probably would, although they are still alot of that type of punishment gong on atleast here in Kentucky where they think it's there own rules. Some kids speak up some don't because they are afraid. I don't agree with spanking I figure nowdays they are more better ways of punishment like no frineds over,no phone,no game or television, or computer time. That seems to work better then spanking would especially since almost everything has went electronically.

Crime was never for me either. I found that out at 10-years-old. My friends encouraged me to steal a coconut and not wanting to be appear a scaredy-cat I did, but the storekeeper saw me, chased me down the road and caught me. He then gave me a choice, be taken to the police station or to my father. I opted for my father, thinking that if I went to the police station he would find out anyway and it would be worse for me. My father was angry, and he made me pay for the coconut out of my allowance even though I never got to eat any of it.

hi pikefish oh yes it was a handful of balloons in atoy shop and I was about six maybe five. my mom found out after we were outside and she made me go back in and tell the manager what I had done, he wanted to give them to me because I had told him the truth but my mom not wanting me to become a crook, refused to let him do so. I learned right then that my mom was right and I was not suited for being a crook at all.even tho I whined and begged she would not buy them for me either. my mom wasthe one who caught me, and she was honesty itself.

I was 6 or 7, we lived with an elderly man who ran a neighborhood store. Everyday we got to have one treat from the store. My Aunt who was nor much older than me was staying with us that summer, we had all gotten an ice cream. When I finished mine, she said "If you want another one go get it just don't let anyone see it. Me being young and dumb went in got another ice cream, no where to hide it, I stuck it down the front of my shorts elastic band. Everyone was sitting on the porch I sat down, the longer I sat the colder the ice cream got and I finally had to take it out. I got one of the only spankings I ever got from my Dad. I am 51 now and still feel guilty about that time, about 12 years ago I had to take a lie detector for a job, when they asked if I had ever stolen anything, I had answered no, it came up rgat I was lying, the police knew about the ice cream I had told them, so they asked the question again, and this time said other than ice cream have you ever stolen anything, I passed that time with flying colors, the police said they were amazed I felt that guilty over something that happened when I was so young. They just didn't know how hard my Dad spanked my hiney LOL.
