Maybe Chipotle should commission a small army of tiny drones to patrol their restaurants for this kind of stuff. Sure, the initial investment might be steep, but in the long run it would cut down on costs.

as many as you will use on the meal you just bought.
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
I'm pretty sure that my habit of taking like 20 napkins every time I go to Chipotle costs them more than R&W stealing a small cup of soda. I never had to buy napkins in college because I had several hundred Chipotle napkins in one of my desk drawers.
At what point does it become stealing music? Is it only when you download it to your computer? What about streaming it on youtube not from the artist or labels official page? Googling the song and playing it on soundcloud or zippyshare? Getting free trials of XM multiple times to listen for free? Are all of those stealing? Just because you pay for music now when you used to download it for free doesn't make you a better person than the people who still download it for free now. Also I don't take soda when I get water cups, but the reaction by the board to that is so over the top I have to imagine you are all just trolling. I'm sure everyone bashing the twins is perfect and never does anything wrong.
I forgot that we had 4 of these in our cabinets from whomever was in the house before us...
trying to list a bunch of hypothetical gray areas is not an argument for doing something that is clearly not a gray area.
no, it doesn't.
Dude, time to trim that nail.

Yeah I actually noticed that, and was wondering if anybody was going to comment on that haha
pointing out that nobody is perfect is a non sequitur (doubly so with some of these terrible examples).
UV for taking it in stride.
Given this thread is 15 or so pages long I don't think anyone has been shut up.
My roommate in college took a green Tabasco sauce bottle from Chipotle. The absolute only food that he put it on was his carry out from Chipotle. Is that stealing? Is it any different than Putting it on your food while eating there?
This is similarly the only thing we use our bottle for
yes, it's stealing. [tiffles] don't be daft [/tiffles]
It indeed happens, but it isn't a good comparison at all. Lemon water is free, lemonade is not.

I love the notion of "I think it costs too much so why should I bother paying for it?"
I'm 23 years old and a recent graduate. Trust me, I know what it's like to be a broke college student on a budget that was never followed and seldom was I "far from broke" in school. It's not as if I would ever operate on a moral high ground and I really don't care about being on a moral high ground to be completely honest, but in the 17 pages I've just read I cannot fathom how two (normally) intelligent people are missing the point so egregiously.
Just because the music you are taking can't be seen or felt tangibly doesn't make it any different than the soda you are stealing from chipotle (apparently the new barometer for crime in the United States) nor is it justified because you feel the price is unfair or, and this is my favorite, because everyone else is doing it. It's not the hardest concept to grasp: if you can't afford something, you aren't entitled access to it. Now there are two options you can take. The first option you can take you can admit what you are doing is questionable and has consequences but you acknowledge that before doing so, people can make a few jokes at your expense and the issue will be dropped by and large.
The second option you can take is defending your actions with a litany of ill-fitting and inappropriate analogies to further bastardize what could have easily been a legitimate argument. Since you've chosen to do the second part and this thread has devolved into majopa's crusade to rid the people of government shackles in fine establishments such as taco bell and Obama's never ending battle to burden the American public by restricting their access to "fire" taco sauce packets, I'm hoping this one will continue.
Yeah, but not for the reasons you are implying.

So much dumb here. First of all places like chipotle are given fountain drinks for free by soda distributors most of the time. The only thing they pay for is the cups. Secondly that has jack shit to do with stealing music. I'm not high and mighty I def had a different pov in college but when you get older and have money and actually work you will get it more.
Wat? No, they're not.
I've never heard of this, and frankly it seems like a really poor business model to give away your product for free.
Of course, I never worked in chain restaurants or fast food, just regular restaurants. But they definitely had to buy the soda fountain syrups.
That was also in the 90s, before Obama's Socialist America, so maybe it's different today. Free soda for some.
This should be good for another 5+ pages of dumb arguments, in a thread about torrents.
I know for a fact you have to at least lease the machine
