I resonate with that a lot because I used to steal from Goodwill and a lot of other places. And in Vegas when we could not afford, we would go to Food for Less and steal groceries. In Vegas, a lot of stores have no chase policies that if you’re stealing from a store, they cannot chase you. So we would fill up the cart, run out and they couldn’t chase you.
After the episode came out, a lot of people resonated with her story
In the comment section, many people confessed to stealing like Tana Mongeau. According to one Instagram user:
I used to work from Walmart we constantly had people come in and take carts full of stuff if it was groceries or baby stuff we would just let them be. These stores don’t give a fuck about you as an employee mind as well help out someone in need
Another said that this is the least problematic thing she has ever said.
Meanwhile, others admitted that if you’re poor, it’s okay to steal. At the same time, people found Tana Mongeau’s story very relatable.
