Kleptomania:  n. willfully and forcibly stealing relatively small goodses and doing so obsessively

Klemptomania is a compulsion which some humans have to steal relatively inexpensive items from stores or even humans whenever the opportunity presents itself.

A kleptomaniac is usually thief who can’t resist the desire to get something for nothing or in effect stealing something usually relatively small.

Poor humans are not the only ones afflicted by this urge but frequently even the rich or those who can afford to purchase the item are also kleptomaniacs basically wanting to get something for nothing and deriving considerable pleasure from doing so.

Sometimes the embarrassment of getting caught is not enough punishment for the kleptomaniac and if the financial cost or cost to reputation is not high enough this might remain a lifetime affliction which is incurable.
