This is a question Shoplifting

When I was young and impressionable and on holiday in France, I followed some friends into a sweet shop and we each stole something. I was so mortified by this, I returned them.

My lack of French hampered this somewhat - they had no idea why the small English boy wanted to add some chews to the open box, and saw it as an attempt by a nasty foreigner oik to contaminate their stock. Not my best day.

What have you lifted?

Does this really count as theft?
It was a school camping trip donkey's years ago. I don't really remember much about it except that on one occasion we all went swimming at a local leisure centre.

I was one of those kids who couldn't resist pressing buttons. A vending machine in the lobby had plenty of them on, so I pressed a few to wile away the time.

I pressed one, and it dispensed a bag of crisps. I hadn't put any money in it. This was interesting.

Further experimentation showed that about half of the lines in the machine were on free vend. By the time I'd figured this one out, word had spread and we all had our kit bags to hand to stuff full of crisps and chocolate bars.

Having emptied every single line that was vending for free, we went for our swim. By the time we were due to leave, someone had re-stocked the machine, so we did it all again.

I don't think I ever lost any sleep over it.
