What's the strangest thing you've stolen?

Time to fess up.



Oh, and that thing you stole from the nightstand...keep it.

I once shoplifted a roll of Smarties from a candy display in a grocery store.

A golf course flag and a letter off of the Post Oak Mall sign.

Wasn't a stealer. But in college, went into the classrooms at night and messed with profs stuff....glued phone handset down to receiver, took all the keys of one profs keyboard, took the white board off the wall and moved it to another room, and a few other annoying things like that. One time I manage to get into the chem. lab. Made some tri-nitro iodide....very good stuff....perfectly stable when wet...very unstable when dry. Took a bobby pin and put some in the door locks while it was wet. Wish I had been a fly on the wall to watch in the morning.

I had just became certified in Scuba when I was 18, and I wanted one of those things that clips to your vests, and holds your gauge hose in place. I couldn't find one for sale, so I snagged one from a BCD in the dive shop.

Man, it's so much nicer not having that hose just dangling around, 8 years later.

I have stolen a golf course flag, and the letter "A" from the side of the Lenoir Mall.

I've stolen a bag of firewood. And got caught. Possibly the worst day of my life. I was ~16.

I didn't steal this but this is the strangest thing I've thought about stealing:

I thought about stealing the ceramic grinding part to replace the one I cracked in my pepper grinder (IKEA pepper grinder). Fiance bought me another one when she discovered I broke mine and that solved my problem.

One of those orange cones by the side of the street. My cousin in the Philippines has it in his room.

I stole a young woman's heart once.

That did explain why she was so heartless after the divorce.
