was talking to my friend who told me she went to toys r us with her girls and by mistaje they chucked in an iggle piggle (little toy teddy) in the trolley and she walked out by accident with the toy. she says its only worth a fiver so she pretended to ring up her hubby and said go and pay for the iggle piggle (did it so girls didnt realise she wasnt gonna pay for it) and she is really proud of herself.

i was not impressed and told her that it was wrong and ive walked back loadsa times cos with kids i have managed to shop lift lots of weird and wonderful things (once my 2 year old was holding a bunch of 'on your communion' cards!).

whats your stance... does it matter if its a small item or would you take it back whatever?

i walked back once when i had a pair of knickers caught on my pushchair wheel...it was all battered and dirty so i offered to return and pay for it.....but they were like nah its cool. just couldnt live with myself if i ever took something that i didnt purchase!

Yip, its a tough one. I'd pay for it or return it i think, not too sure until you are in the situation. If i couldn't afford it and it happend to obtain it i may have to think twice but as long as i am able to pay for it i will. Honesty and all that!

my daughter took a chocolate bar out of tesco...I noticed in the car park and went straight back and made my daughter pay for it..(she was 4...) teaches them a lesson IMHO

my son when he was about 5 filled a bag from the pick and mix in the co-op, we were walking out the shop and i never realised. i was horrified, walked back in and dumped it by the scales lol and left.

Totally agree that it's wrong to take things and not pay even if it is a genuine mistake

Your friend should be ashamed of herself not proud

Correct thing to do IMHO.

I've actually made my youngest son return to Asda with me so we could return a rubber (eraser) that the light fingered little **** stole. He was not impressed, but the store manager was, and ended up giving it to us for our honesty.

This is him and some friends :

Kids are master criminals in disguise :-D I've got to keep an eye on my little boy like a hawk if he's in his pushchair and I'm in a shop. He just grabs things left right and centre. I'd be the same though, if I found he'd actually taken something without me noticing, I'd take it back next time and pay for it. Whether it's a 10p item or £100 item, my kids will be bought up knowing what's right and wrong so to do that, I've got to lead by example.

Its about honesty and setting a good example to your kids, I don't think there can be any question over taking it back. I feel embarrassed if I take my son shopping and he starts tucking in to the grapes before we've paid!

Eh genuine accident....personally I'd keep....


I wouldnt intentionally steal but if it was an accident I'd think 'stuff it' big companies rip us off enough


If I was with kids though I would take back to show them

hmmmm i dont think 2 wrongs make a right...so cant see the justification in ur argument. and at the end of the day she did make out to her kids that they paid for said item. fact is what she did was wrong and i wouldn't feel comfortable if i kept that item. to me its shoplifting!

I agree, i would also take it back :thumbsup:
i remember going into boots one day and the alarms went off which i didnt take much notice of, but then it happened as i was walking out, and it was packed in there, the lady came from behind the counter and asked to check my bags and asked me to show her what was in my pockets, i thought i was going to die from the shame :oops: but it turned out that an xbox controller i brought from a market stall had an electronic tag inside and had set the alarm off, but the worst thing about it is that i live in a fairly small town, and the woman still looks at me funny, even though i hadn't stole anything :? i try to avoid boots now
