Stealing from the wreckers.

Is this acceptable behaviour or not? Is a small piece ok due to the admission charge or is it totally unallowed?

Re: Stealing from the wreckers.

It's a business, stealing from a business is never OK.

Re: Stealing from the wreckers.

If the place has crap cusotmer service or they overcharge and slap stupid admission fees like some of the local places here, they load up on as much as possible! On teh other hand, the other day i went to a place recomended by a friend and they were happy to let me walk away with a few extra tidbits for free.

Re: Stealing from the wreckers.

Theft is theft, never acceptable. I find it personally disgusting that people would even consider it... let alone start a thread to try and "justify" it. Never acceptable to steal, be it a car, a bike, a cigarette lighter or a jellybean!

Re: Stealing from the wreckers.

come on a jelly bean is abit far fetched CASPER

theft is a crime,if you take something without consent of owner it is a crime,i know a large majority of ppl here n else where would of took the odd bolt or switch,etc i reckon ppl just wont admit it though,little parts are still posession of the owner exactly but yeah it doesn't justify taking it but yeah little parts i seen wreckers charge 75% of what you'd pay for em new so yeah theres wreckers who try to steal your cash off you as well,guess its sorta like a illegal KARMA if you could say that..
still theft is theft..

geez i've mistakenly walked outta the wreckers with a whole car one time, forgot i had it,ppl make mistakes you know..(notice the sarcasm ppl'z)

well let me put it this way,how many of you take things home from work n never return it?
a pen maybe?
ruler?
tools?
theft is theft however little it is,so i guess everyones did it then,whether it was yesterday or 20 years ago....

Re: Stealing from the wreckers.

I'm with 'Casper', stealing is never acceptable, it's dishonest.
You wouldn't like it if someone came into your home and grabbed something just because it's value was low.
