    Are you a 100% law abiding citizen?

    A comment on here just got me thinking about this and am interested in people's answers!

    Have you ever broken the law, and if yes how?

    Never.

    75mph on the motorway, does that count?

    Yes every week I'll have broke a few laws but nothing serious enough that I'd be arrested for.

    Hasnt everyone broken some law at some time?

    taping off the radio, buying a dodgy cd or fake watch, few miles over the limit?
    smoking where it says no smoking? having a drink when you were underage?

    what about driving 33 mph in a 30 limit? Illegal but you wouldn't be in big trouble for it.

    Yes, but nothing drastic.

    When I was little I told the shopkeeper I had £1 worth of pick and mix when there was about £1.20 worth of sweets in the bag..

    Exactly. There are some laws that are completely stupid, and I think if you asked a few nuns or the likes of, you'd even get some of them admitting something.

    You can't be 100% if you have in the past.

    Most of mine are unintentional! Although def guilty of not owning up once I realised few times :oops:

    Saw a lil boy stick a choccy bar up his jumper in supermarket yesterday, ws only about 3 and it made me smile at his cheekiness - if that was an adult I'd have been so quick to cast judgement

    As you get older, your driving slows down, you are not interested in cheap cd's, you have a bit more cash so dont buy stuff from dodgy market sellers, youd dont want a fake shirt, you know what the real thing is,

    so you tend not to do a lot of things that you did in your teens, and probably respect the lives of others a bit more, so your not so much of a general nuisance.

    i was telling porkies anyway :oops:

    Anyone out there who thinks that they never break any laws(no matter how big or how insignificant) needs to be institutionalized for their own good - as they're clearly delusional.

    Broke loads of laws, I very much doubt anyone hasn't broke a law

    So, following on from the subject - what makes you any better than a burglar, car thief or whatever if you have admitted to stealing stuff in the past?
    For example, the grape thing (not picking on anyone here as it happens with loads of stuff like this), thats shoplifting, but 'its only a grape' so thats seen as ok, but how is it any different to someone nicking some fusion blades from the chemist? Do people think its ok to steal things of a certain value or does it depend on the circumstances?

    +1 The best comment on this subject so far. I regretfully lived my life in an inconsiderate way (we'll leave it at that :oops:) until my late teens at which point a brief stay in pokey straightened me out. Suffice to say I've taken my punishment and am now at the point that if I were ever convicted of a criminal offence again, my life would be irrecovably damaged due to loss of trust etc. .

    I was lucky enough to have gone through this process before the law changed where you have to disclose all convictions involving custodial sentences for life as I believe that if I were tarred with that brush at all job interviews then I would likely have thought "I've got nothing to lose"

    I'm glad that you saw you were going down the wrong road, and realised what it can do to you later in life, and that you have genuinely put that kind of stuff behind you and are doing things the right way.

    I'm not sure all employers who might see someone who has been 'inside' wouldn't give someone a leg up if they can see they are really over that kind of thing, I know i would, but time is a healer in itself, and people take time to trust again.

    +1 back at you

    Thanks Colin, great follow on

    I wouldn't consciously steal anything - not even a grape in supermarket as my children are normally with me and I wouldn't want them to do it. There was one occasion where I came out supermarket with toilet rolls hanging on the trolley and they hadnt been put through checkout, I didnt go back in and declare the mistake but am extra cautious now as the next time I went in I was so paranoid I was going to get a tap on the shoulder :oops:

    I dont see any difference in someone eating the grapes on way round (they are blatantly aware that the bagwill weigh less when they get to the checkout!) and stealing razor blades, both are conscious decisions

    As for circumstance, if you go out of your way to take something that doesnt belong to you, its theft - no matter how desperate you are for that item/money
