Have you ever stolen anything?  If your answer to that is no . . . chances are you’re a thief AND a liar.  Because just about everyone has stolen SOMETHING in their life, even if it was by mistake.  Here are five things almost EVERYONE steals.


1.  Pens.  In one survey, 70% of people who work in an office said that a co-worker has stolen a pen before.  And we do it by mistake so often that doctor’s offices actually tie them to clipboards.

2.  A spot in line.  Which is like stealing other people’s TIME.  One study found that when someone cuts, people object to it 54% of the time.  But if two people try to cut TOGETHER, it jumps to 91%.

3.  Something from a hotel room.  With stuff like shampoo, it’s not actually stealing, because they WANT you to take that stuff.  If you don’t, they’ll just toss it.  But 35%of people admit they’ve also stolen things like towels and sheets.

4.  Lighters.  Which people steal by MISTAKE all the time.  Especially smokers, because they’re in the habit of using a lighter and immediately putting it in their pocket.

5.  Condiments, straws, and napkins.  The best example is ketchup packets. You probably have 50 of them sitting in a drawer, just in case you ever run out of ketchup you actually PAID FOR.
