How come we’re not as revolting?

The worst thing about looting (apart from the obvious illegality of it and the fact that you never get a bag) is that as soon as you leave the shop at pace, you immediately invalidate any guarantee or warranty rights for the products you have just pilfered and so you end up at home with a pair of Converse runners that you’ve nicked without checking to see if both of them are the same size.

It is like impulse buying, but just sped up by about 10 times.
