Writer's Block: Five-Finger Discount

Have you ever stolen something and gotten away with it? Did you feel guilty about it later?
I did some prank thefts in my youth. A couple of times I stole name plates from bank tellers. I would go into the bank during the winter wearing a coat, rest my arm on the counter, and when the teller wasn't looking slide the name plate into the sleeve.

As I write about it now, I do feel kind of guilty. I don't think I did enormous harm to the bank, but they still had to go to the expense of replacing the name plates. But there is a little part of me that is still giggling. I feel guilty about that, too.

Look, we all did stupid things as kids. Me included. I still do them. :D

(Not shoplifting though.)
