I’m so embarrassed and ashamed of myself. A few days ago I added a clearance label to an item to get a discount, paid for the item and left. Nothing happened in store, cashier didn’t even bat an eyelid. I’m now terrified of any recourse if they find out. Can I get caught and prosecuted after the event? I have visions of police turning up at my door, or my face appearing in the local paper. 

 

Please help, I can’t stop googling like mad 😔 this is so out of character for me, I don’t even know why I did it!

Firstly, on the basis of what you say – nothing will happen because no one knows about it.

However, it's very nice of you to feel so embarrassed and ashamed – and it means that it really is out of character, as you say.

Why don't you simply return the item – maybe with an anonymous note of apology. Learn your lesson and try to understand why you did it and avoid doing it again.

 

I think that understanding why you did is probably a very important step

I’m too scared to return to the store now in case something happens or I get recognised!

I agree with Bankfodder that it's important you understand why you did this so that you don't end up in the same situation again. In your situation I would consider talking it over with your GP in case there is some underlying cause. Your GP has probably heard it all before and won't judge you.

Thank you, I will of course look into this. It’s not something I have ever done before (I know everyone says this!). It was a perfect gift for someone but I didn’t have the cash for it so this seemed like an option at the time - of course now I realise no one needs a gift that badly! A moment of idiotic stupidity.

Trying to return it may cause more problems than it cures so my suggestion is that you take it to a charity shop so some good comes of the episode.

People do strange things when stressed and believe me doctors know all about stress firsthand.
