Hypothetical:

You're walking in a supermarket with a cart full of groceries. Just as you are about to checkout, someone takes your shopping cart.

You don't own any of the items in the cart, so is this theft?

Poll coming.

You're a retard, read Scourges posts. There is already a system folder, why do I need a system32.

Sorta. If they leave the shop with the goods, it's shop lifting, but it isn't really theft from who they took the cart from.
#6
that just seems like pure idiocy. why anyone would want to do that is beyond me. but i suppose it isnt really theft, as you havent bought them, and you can always go round the shop again and pick up the same stuff, then buy it.

i would literally punch someone if this happened to me though, it'd be beyond annoying and pointless.
#7
I doubt you could 'file a suit' against them but it's a real dick thing to do.

If you have the intention to permanently deprive the owner (the shop if the customer hasn't bought the items) of their goods, then yes, it is theft.

Not theft from you but from the store. Obviously??


But the person who stole your cart isn't leaving the store, he's just taking your cart and the shit in it.

If you'd had any nuts whatsoever you'd have kicked him in the face. Problem solved NO?
#18
It's not a crime to do so, but it's a huge dick move, but it still wouldn't be considered theft.
DeVillains!

no, it's just a dick move. It's like some guy bid sniping on eBay. If he takes for it and buys it before you can, then it's just being an asshole, but in no way is it theft.
#21
If I saw it happen I would not even be mad. I would just be like "what the fock just happened."

Theft? No. A little quirky? Heck yes.

It's worse than that because bidding on ebay takes a second, shopping means negotiating a stupid wobbly cart around all the old biddies and people who just fucking stop in the middle of the aisle and just STAND THERE... to do a proper weekly shop it probably takes me about half an hour. If someone nicked my cart and meant I had to start again I would be so frustrated.

It's like someone kicking down the house of cards you just spent ages making. Nothing's being stolen it's just a frustrating waste of time.
#23
Heh I did this once, except I just moved the cart all the way to the other side of the store
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

It's theft of the shopper's time that they spent picking out the exact products they wanted to buy.
#25
its not illegal but you could prolly get them kicked out of the store.

Not a crime, but a definite DICK MOVE
