No, but in 4th grade I ran a successful gel-pen operation.

Sure did and it was also in my 5th grade year. Somewhere around 1992-93.

Chrome caps and hood ornaments. I remember a "friend" and I trying to steal a Jaguar hood ornament in front of a Firestone center. One of the mechanics saw us and started chasing us. I got away but my accomplice wasn't so lucky. That's when I quit.

As if you never told a lie. Jesus said hypocrites were lower than thieves and liars.

Don't care. I was brought up with a code of conduct where there was some things you just did not do. High on that list was be a thief or a liar. To do either would bring shame to your family name and dire consequences on your ass.

I definitely had "chromes" on my GT bike tires, but I never stole them. They were pretty cheap at Pep Boys...even the eight ball or dice ones.

I do recall going into an Autozone and seeing them on the shelf and thinking to myself, "frick me right?"

re: Anybody else steal "chromes" as a kid
Me an my buddies got bored with just looking for nice ones we'd steal the black plastic ones. My friends parents found their stash and made them go door to door and apologize/return them. I quit after that in fear my parents may have heard through the grapevine about it.

But I had a good fossil watch box full.

huge fad around school called stealing "chromes


Yes. Grew up in SE BR late 80's/early 90's. Put them on my diamondback and cruised in the 'doah.

Stepbro finally got caught and we quit. Then we may have went on to do other things that involved fire....

I guess this has to be a product of kids of the 90's. My friends and I never even considered going around just stealing shit, even something as small and worthless as valve stem caps. We got in all sorts of trouble for sure, but just going around stealing shit? WTF?

I was the kid that beat the shite out of those kids. I was more of the jock type and we hated the ghetto and gothic bitches.

I personally never did this, but it was pretty popular here too back in the elementary and middle school days.

I was late 90's-00's, we mainly rang doorbells and threw water balloons at cars. I don't remember ever stealing anything though

We would snap off the Mercedes emblems from the front of cars and make necklaces out of them.

A couple of guys in my class in 5th or 6th grade would do that. I was always too scared to get caught.

Chrome caps!

I killed someone trying to steal them off of my mongoose.

I hid the body in Rag's pool.
