Kleptomania: an impulse-control disorder consisting of stealing objects which would be useless to the individual personally and have no great economic value.

Okay, I admit it. When I was 12, I stole a Snicker bar from the grocery store. I never got caught but my conscience wouldn't let me eat it. I consider that a good thing. I like having a conscience. That means I'm not a sociopath!


  1. Encountering a kleptomaniac is never a good thing, especially if they just spent an unsupervised week long stay in your house. Thankfully, that never happened to me.

    I once took a candy bar from a convenience store in my earlier, mischievous years of childhood. I think I ate mine though. I commend you for your discipline!

    And nice blog!

  2. Matthew: Destroy the evidence. Good thinking.
