MP3s.

Technically not as a packaged product, but oh well.

A sheet of paper from a office supply store.

Friend of mine from highschool got into the habit of making fake report cards (had the TDSB template). Everything was perfect except the paper he was printing it on was nothing like the real thing (greyish colored card stock).

Rather than pay $25 for 500 he decided to help himself.

He felt dumb after I told him he could buy single sheets for $0.25 at the copy counter.

When I was about 6 or 7 I used to steal gum and erasers, to add to my collection. I stuffed them in my undies. Mom never knew, now I realise that was pretty stupid since I never bothered asking her to buy me those things and I'm sure she wouldn't have refused.

Seen 10-11 year old kids raid the candy section in the dollar store at Jane & Finch Mall. Parents were no where to be seen.

Saw a granny attempt to steal at least $100+ worth of groceries but she was caught when another customer tipped off the cashier.
