Why aren’t we doing this in all 50 states??
moving to Iowa
Don’t get me wrong this is friggin awesome, but I don’t think they should limit it to males only. Everyone everywhere should have to do this.
Because women don’t rape, right?

We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.
Important things to keep in mind!
- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.
- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.
- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason
- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.
- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious.
- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized
- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it
like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.
Holy crap, is there like an unspoken thieves code or something?!
it’s a thing. I won’t even lie. I watched someone slip a nursing exam book in their bag at the store I worked at. She made eye contact with me and the blood drained from her face. I simply gave her a sympathetic nod and walked away.
I live in a small town and I knew she was a waitress at a hotel my sister works at, and people at that hotel don’t tip well during off season. Nursing exam books are 50+ bucks. Being a med student myself, I didn’t even breathe a word, and when inventory came up later and the book was missing, I suggested it was likely a mislabel, and the manager wrote it off.
Sometimes, thievery is a necessity. Don’t send people to jail over petty shit.
Don’t snitch. That is all.
We been saying snitches get stitches
At fist I saw the picture and I asked myself. “Why would you want to let people steal?” But out of curiosity I read on. I get it now. I already hate the system and society we live in, and think that yeah if you can pull it off without hurting fellow workers, go ahead! Take a stab at the system while gaining something you need.
I’m going to be the unpopular opinion here and disagree. Only because I’ve been a manager before where my raises depended on inventory, profit lost, and other similar factors. So if you decided to steal something, you were essentially taking hard earned money out of my pocket and away from my family. You’re also changing the rate of pay at which I can hire people so instead of paying someone $10/hr I can only pay them $8.20/hr to make up for profit lost. Some items I understand, if you were stealing bread or lunch meat or something, I get it. I’ll act like I never saw anything or I’ll offer to pay for it because you’re obviously starving and you need to eat. But if you’re stealing a bag of $40 crab legs, then no. I don’t agree with that. Just be honest and don’t steal.
Notes are all good until it gets to the manager. Of course the bosses don’t want you to steal. Even low level bosses are still part of the problem.
do you forget how people become managers? I started from the bottom and I know what it’s like to get paid minimum wage. When I became a manager I was the one hiring people. I’d much rather hire someone way above minimum wage than not because they deserved it. The problem is the people that are justifying stealing. You aren’t sticking it to “the man” by taking a stapler (which btw they probably have a deal worked out with Office Depot/Staples/etc and that cost them $1.00? maybe?) you’re taking money out of everyone’s pocket who works there. Including low level bosses who have worked for years to get to that position and are probably also underpaid. There are absolutely some managers and CEOs to blame but that still doesn’t change the fact that stealing is not okay. You will hurt the people who work there. Even those making minimum wage. You’ll also be hurting the people who shop there because if you think big CEOs and the higher ups are going to take money out of their pockets to make up for the loss, you are sadly mistaken. They’ll raise the prices and hurt the honest people who abide by the law.
I’m going to follow all this up with:
If you’re stealing to survive (i.e: food), that’s one thing. Because you literally have no money and no means to support yourself or your family. I get that. There are other avenues available to feed yourself, but people get desperate. Fine. Don’t hurt anybody and I’ll look the other way. But if you’re stealing office supplies from work, or a new purse from Sears, or a cell phone charger from Target, or even a box of candy from 7/11 - the list goes on and on - then you may try to justify it 20 different ways, but at the end of the day all you are is a greedy piece of shit that is too ignorant to know the difference between NEEDS and WANTS. It doesn’t matter if the item is overpriced, or crafted/sold by underpaid workers. You veil your theft under the pretense of “sticking it to the system”, when the real motivation for doing so is simple greed. A false sense of entitlement that you deserve nice things, but shouldn’t have to work for them; that it’s Corporate ‘Murica’s fault for jacking up prices, keeping you down and what you “need” out of your grasp. And Corporate ‘Murica isn’t going to take money out of their pockets to cover down on the money lost, no no… they’re going to cut the hours of their disposable employees - or fire them altogether - and/or raise the costs of products. Meaning the honest consumer, who goes out and earns a living to be able to purchase what they want, will now have to pay more due to your greed. You’re not bucking the system - you’re contributing to it. You are the epitome of #firstworldproblems, and no nothing of struggle.
Don’t tell me what to do. I do what I want
If only this was a popular opinion with the NRA
Go plate… brilliant!
