Shoplifting to make ends meet - From Anon

My friend has a full time job and does not take drugs, so why does she shoplift? She's a well dressed woman and her home is spotlessly clean. She's the last person I'd have down as being a thief. I asked her why she does it and she told me that after she'd paid her mortgage and her bills, she had nothing left for treats. My worry is is that if she carries on, she will get caught and may lose her job altogether, and she can't see the major risks she is taking. Everyone is fed up of working just to make ends meet, but I am just so shocked that a decent, kind and caring person would resort to shoplifting.
