    i am so scared because in Asda they caught me with unpaid items. Itís first time i donít why this believe me is too stopid for doing. They took me to the security room I signed a paper even I donít know what about it then I paid for the items.

    You're probably banned from the store and you might get a letter asking you to pay something to Asda for their "security costs" known as civil recovery Which you can ignore ( there's normally 5/6 letters which can sound quite threatening but don't actually go anywhere )

    Other than that , as the goods were paid for ( or returned?) and there was no police involvement it shouldn't affect you at all and there's no reason to let it get you down - everyone makes mistakes xxx

      Hi and welcome

      you don't say what your family situation is: married/teenager living at home or whatever.

      If you are a young person still living at home it depends on your age as to what to do,
      If your parents are likely to intercept your post it may be as well to confide in your parents to avoid the worry of them finding out.
      The same advice would apply to a married person concerned about their partner discovering about the incident.

      I would hope in all cases, following the initial embarrassment, the family would support you, and place the incident in context.
      It is not the crime of the century, it is a very minor event
      Telling your family will remove future stress
