Some people steal things from others . Whenever they get chance, they end up hiding and filling stuffs in their pockets . It sounds ridiculous and shameful but some can’t stop themselves and their inner thirst to steal things in owners’ absence .
In scientific term, Kleptomania is mentioned as a mental disorder . Whether it is kleptomania or not , it is still an act of thief .The people suffering from kleptomania can steal any kind of things which may or may not be of their use. They can even steal pen, pencil, tape, notebooks, coins, paper or whatever they found .
Even shoplifting looks similar to it but shoplifter mostly stealing valuables and costly items, but kleptomaniac never mind stealing anything they find . They are unable to control themselves when they find they are alone and that’s the good opportunity to steal.
Some people steal useful things for themselves that they can use in future. Even though they can purchase them and they are strong financially, they keep on stealing things and they don’t think about others . And if they are caught later, they are ready to make lame excuses and lying .
If you are figuring out something like that in yourself , cure it . May be you are not a kleptomaniac , stop it . Don’t steal, it’s a moral issue.
