I've never been more ashamed of anything I've done in my whole life. I'm in my early 40's and know better than to do such a stupid thing. I will kick myself daily for having this lapse in judgement and I'm sad that I've contributed to this ever rising problem. People do desperate things when cash gets scarce. Unfortunately I've put myself in a position where the court or judge probably wont think my word means much. For anyone who reads this: don't ever consider for a minute that taking something that don't belong to you could somehow be justified. When it comes down to it all you have is your integrity. Being able to look at yourself in the mirror everyday with pride means everything. It's not worth it. Take my advice: Whatever it is your coveting: do without it!
