Dear readers,

As long as there have been people selling things, there have been people stealing those things. It’s a victory when they get caught, but watching them try to weasel their way out of it can be extra entertaining.

We’ve rounded up ten stories about customers caught stealing in the store, and their sputtering explanations of how they tried to get out of it!


Popcon – That month-old popcorn grease is just extra seasoning!

First Impressions Lead To Confessions – Hits from the comments: “How long did it take you to stop laughing?”

A Library With A Likely Story – Your first mistake was giving everyone the missing item and their name.

Is That A Pinot Noir In Your Pocket… – This is the only acceptable form of body-shaming.

Taking It Down To The Wire – Maybe just try a coffee shop next time.
