Yea, I'm not condoning stealing, but rather pointing out that those signs are insulting to the 99.9% of people who follow the rules. I've been in mom and pop stores that have signs all over warning you that you are being watched. I just want to flee, not buy. My reaction to a sign like the one in the OP would be similar.

Yes, I have achieved work / life balance.

Sounds kinda unchristian to me. Feeding the poor and disadvantaged is what Christianity is all about isn't it?

So many things are now "free" (government provided), I suppose folks assume everything should be free - even coffee or pastries. I'm sure it gets to be a frame of mind. Of course, YMMV.
