‘Accidental theivery’ is a valid thing, I believe. If you check out a book from the library and forget to bribe it back for way too long, just cause you forgot to return it, I think that’s accidental thievery. Thievery nonetheless, but accidental.
There was also one time where I put my friends toy in my pocket and forgot about it. When I got home I pulled it out. I immediately ran to my mom in tears, because I had “stolen” my friend’s toy. It was returned as soon as possible. “Accidental thievery”.
What kind of library do you go to, Masøn? Are they so full of books that they don’t want, that you have to pay the library money to be able to return them? There must be many cases of “accidental thievery” in your town if that’s the case. 😀
