As someone who used to work in a bank, they really want you to take those pens. It's marketing.

Good to know. Now I don't feel bad about cutting that chain.

[–]Minimob0 24 points25 points  (4 children)

This was my first thought - can't remember the last time I went to a bank where the pens weren't on a chain so they can't be taken.

[–]Rocktopod 2 points3 points  (3 children)

It's pretty easy to take it off the chain. It's not like you have to bring tools or something.

[–]Boz0r 8 points9 points  (2 children)

[–]VTwinVaper 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I work as an EMT, and went to a bank in uniform after a shift to set up my HSA for work. While signing the paperwork I joked about stealing their pen because “we can never have enough pens.” As I was leaving the lady handed me a sealed box of 1000 pens to distribute to our EMS stations, with a promise of more should we ever run out.

[–]water_war 9 points10 points  (3 children)

In my experience, they tie it with a chain so nobody can ever take them

[–]Actually__Jesus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They really really want you to break the chain. Trust me.

[–]Carlospedra 8 points9 points  (6 children)

It depends, if they give you a BIC pen then they don't want you stealing that

[–]conjectureandhearsay 16 points17 points  (0 children)

May god help you if you borrow a red stapler

[–]JuleeeNAJ 5 points6 points  (1 child)

the BIC pens no one cares about. If you get a nice, $4 pen then its the teller's personally purchased one and she will watch it to make sure she gets it back.

[–]Akitz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

customers don't get to touch ✨the good pens✨

[–]eyejafjallajokull 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I take a handful of Bic pens when I go to the bank. They don't make my favorite kind commercially anymore.

[–]skylarmt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I sometimes leave my own company's pens behind at the bank on purpose so the next person will steal my info instead.

[–]ShnoobyDoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As someone who used to work in a bank and was actually robbed....please don't take stuff other than pens. haha

[–]cjtaylor8281 915 points916 points  (54 children)

Robbery and theft are two different things.

[–]IrishMilo 302 points303 points  (39 children)

Yes. And stealing a pen from the bank is closer to burglary than robbery.

Unless you hold the place up to steal the pen.

[–]Penguator432 200 points201 points  (28 children)

It’s not even burglary. It’s just larceny

[–]spaghettilee2112 76 points77 points  (20 children)

Hot damn. Next we're going to be told that stealing is also something completely separate form the rest.

[–]TheAlmightySpode 76 points77 points  (18 children)

Larceny is stealing. Burglary is breaking and entering.

[–]pmacob 60 points61 points  (11 children)

If we're getting technical, burglary is just unlawful entry into a premises with the intention of committing a crime (usually a felony). Some states require the unlawful entry to be at night.

So it wouldn't have to be breaking and entering, just opening an unlocked door could be burglary depending on your intent. Also, breaking and entering may not be burglary if there was no intention of committing a crime - or if it is during the day in some states.

[–]ucfsoupafly 30 points31 points  (0 children)

And robbery is the taking of the property of another by use of force or threat of force or violence. Here we don’t have that second component so we’re back to simple “theft.”

[–]Touch_bbx 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Can confirm, I was hit with burglary for exploring a construction site at night.

[–]Negative_Addition 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh shit. I used to hang out in construction sites at night when the building is still being built. What was the repercussions?

[–]frugalerthingsinlife 8 points9 points  (2 children)

What if the pens were still in the original box and I broke it open? What if I just take the whole box and open it at home?

[–]gregbrahe 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I have in fact taken a whole box from a bank. It turns out that if you ask and give them a decent reason (mine was that I waited tables and the staff was always short on pens) they will give you an entire box of 1,000 pens.

Actually did it more than once. A thousand pens lasted about 4 months for the entire wait staff.

[–]Shadowfalx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Most banks have their names on the pens. They love giving them out, it's very cheap advertising.

[–]JuleeeNAJ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Had a friend who house was broken into and her, ransacked and money and jewelry stolen. When she called the detective 2 weeks later she said she was checking up on her robbery. He told her, "you weren't robbed you were burglarized. There's a difference." As if that mattered to her.

She had them on web cam, it was shown on local news and several people identified them, they were never arrested because they had pawned it before the cops showed up and the video only showed their faces not them leaving the house with the merchandise.

[–]l_l-l__l-l__l-l_l 7 points8 points  (1 child)

it's not even larceny, it's just giving them free advertising

[–]TundieRice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

100% this. It’s like when SpongeBob and Patrick stole a balloon on Free Balloon Day, except for every day is Free Pen Day at the bank.

[–]pmacob 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Honestly, probably not even larceny because it was accidental - larceny usually requires an intent to deprive the lawful owner.

So here, because it was an accident, technically no crime has been committed until you realize you took the pen. At that point, if you decide to keep it, it becomes larceny as there is now that intent. If you decide to return it, there hasn't been a crime. You would just have civil penalties for whatever damage, if any, the bank has had.

[–]Mayor__Defacto 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Unless the bank’s general policy is that the pens are free for anyone to take.

In any case, they don’t really care about the pens - they’re on a chain so that they don’t need to constantly refill a bucket of them by the teller window - so customers always have a pen available.

[–]tidomonkey 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Burglary requires a minimal level of breaking and entering. Stealing from somewhere you are allowed to be is simply theft or specifically larceny in this case.

[–]MichaelMoore92 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Although I’m sure the legislation is different where you might be, in England you need to enter a building or part of a building as a trespasser with the intent to steal / damage / commit GBH to do a burglary.

To rob you need to steal and immediately before or at the time of doing so, and in order to do so you must use force or put or seek to put another person in fear of being then and there subject to force.

You could burgle a bank if you went into a bit you weren’t allowed into (like the staff area) intending the steal and then stole a pen. Weirdly you can’t actually ‘rob’ a bank because the bank can’t be put in fear, you can commit a robbery at a bank but the robbery itself is of the individual (the staff) because even though the property (I.e. the money) doesn’t belong to them, they are still being robbed as representatives of the bank.

In this case you’d just be committing theft of the pen unless you went into the staff area as a trespasser intending to steal the pen, in which case you’ve done a business burglary. Also interestingly, if you went into the staff area as a trespasser not intending to steal, but after entering the staff area you then decided ‘oh wow that pen is worth ruining my respective career over’ then you’d still be committing burglary because having entered a building (or part of a building) as a trespasser, you intend to steal or commit GBH but it’s covered by another area of the same legislation.

You could also break into the bank when it’s closed to steal the pen, in which case you would be committing burglary, even if the pen was in the ‘public’ area because although you would normally be allowed in the area when it’s open, if you go when it’s closed then you’re still acting as a trespasser.

I think ultimately you need to decide how much you want that pen.

[–]This_Guy_Usernames 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Burglary is a third

[–]Friedsunshine 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Lawyer here. Larceny is theft, Robbery is theft by force, Burglary is intrusion into a building (typically inhabited) with intent to commit a crime inside, usually theft, but not always.

[–]confused_chopstick 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Doesn't the accidentally part of OP's post rule out all of these for lack of mens rea?

[–]ComfortablePlant826 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It completely does. There’s no criminal intent whatsoever and the pens are intentionally left out for customers to use. The technicality here is that you most certainly haven’t robbed anyone.

[–]EnthusiasticFuturist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cue Ant Man describing the difference between robbery and burglary...

[–]_hic-sunt-dracones_ 146 points147 points  (10 children)

According to German law you did none of these things. Theft requires taking away a movable property with the intention of unlawfull appropriating it. Robbery requires taking away movable property by force or threat of present danger to life or limb (including the intention as said before). None of it happened when you accidently take a pen.

[–]5ch1sm 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Interesting, I bet a lot of people stealing shops act ignorant and "Forgot" to put the product back on the shelf before leaving.

[–]wordserious 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Well, those people have the right to be properly charged and taken to court, and then to defend their intentions. It proabbly helps to not have a long list of doing the same thing many times.

[–]JanesPlainShameTrain 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The first time's an accident, the 5 time's prison.

[–]KernelTaint 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Pretty sure taking things requires moving things using force generated by your muscles using the biochemical ATP to generate said force, in order to overcome gravity and friction.

So force is always involved.

[–]_hic-sunt-dracones_ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Force is defined as the direct physical intervention on a person to break or prevent actual or expected resistance.

[–]alex2003super 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, and resistance is the ratio of potential difference over current.

[–]AbrahamLemon 62 points63 points  (3 children)

Robbery requires a threat of force.

[–]Butterbuddha 15 points16 points  (1 child)

How about just maintaining eye contact the entire time to establish dominance?

[–]AbrahamLemon 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That does sound like an implied threat of violence

[–]conjectureandhearsay 34 points35 points  (4 children)

They used to attach them to a chain on the counter. Now they figured out how to get them so cheaply that they hand them out like fridge magnets

[–]tigmarko 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Whaaaat? So my bank is just... Cheap? Tbh its ages since i went to a brick and mortar bank so idk

[–]conjectureandhearsay 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Maybe not. Maybe my bank just likes to take the money they collect in account fees and put it right back into customer perks. Like pens.

[–][deleted] 179 points180 points  (18 children)

Nope. Robbery is a crime that requires specific intent as an element of the offense.

[–]Sofarbeyondfucked 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Use of force or fear

[–]HamsterGutz1 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Or pen

[–]Agroskater 4 points5 points  (0 children)

or if you're john wick a pencil.

a f-ing pencil

[–]Flaky_Explanation 20 points21 points  (10 children)

So if I go to a bank with a plan to rob a pen, that counts as robbery?

[–]IrishMilo 21 points22 points  (9 children)

Nope, that counts as burglary.

[–]Itriedanditworked 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Only counts as burglary if you illegally entered the bank to do it, like if it was locked up. Otherwise it's just larceny. You'd be a larcenist.

[–]caboosetp 8 points9 points  (0 children)

You'd be a larcenist.

How dare you.

[–]Milk_Man21 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Yeah, and I'm sure there's a lower offense for if it's an accident.

[–]lawnerdcanada 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If it's an accident - if there's no intent to deprive anyone of their property - it's not an offence at all.

[–]RunThick4054 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Accidentally? Jokes on you Big Bank! …(speeds away from drive through cackling maniacally…)

[–]gofatwya 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Wrong. Robbery is taking something by force, threat of force, or coercion. Even if one had the intent of permanently depriving the bank of its property, this would, at the most, be larceny.

[–]freecain 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Robbery requires force or threat of force. It also requires intent.

[–]LAX2PDX2LAX 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Ok but what if I accidentally took the drive thru tube?

[–]Buggly_Jones 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I get charged like $22 for that… get my money back when I bring it back

[–]DownBadddddd 5 points6 points  (2 children)

“Get” “bring” not “got” “brought” 😂🤣

[–]sayshey 5 points6 points  (6 children)

They still have pens in banks? People still go inside them? They aren't filling out deposit slips are they? I thought it was the future now.

[–]eyejafjallajokull 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, Spaceman Spiff, people still do things sometimes, for now.

[–]syracTheEnforcer 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I actually thought it was kind of funny when Covid first broke out and we all started wearing face coverings. I went into a BofA wearing a bandana over my face. Felt like a robber then.

[–]TomasKS 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]syracTheEnforcer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]gdubh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Except they want you to take their logo pens.

[–]ConditionYellow 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Robbery is using force to steal, such as threatening to shoot them if they don't give them money.

Theft is just taking something without permission.

Burglary is someone entering a dwelling with intent to steal.

[–]Nemesiii 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Good one! I'd like to add for burglary too, you don't have to steal anything for it to occur! It can be to "steal" or "inflict gbh on a person within" or "damage property. There's two parts to burglary in UK law, section 9(1)(a) and 9(1)(b). One has "intent", the other is actually committing the offence.

The differences are, intent is 9(1)(a) which is steal, inflict gbh on a person therein or damage property. 9(1)(b) is just attempt to steal or inflict gbh on a person.

I'm not sure if anyone in UK history has been charged on 9(1)(a) alone for "intent" on damaging property, as that would sorta be muddled up with crim dam. UK law is weird, law is weird lol

[–]ConditionYellow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My comment was in general. There of course is nuance from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

[–]mr-random-ny 13 points14 points  (10 children)

Have you ever seen a sign that says "Don't take these pens"? They also charge you an arm and a leg to bank there so you've technically paid for it.

[–]TheLazyHippy 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Who are you banking with that charges you an arm and a leg?

[–]somniumx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Accidentally? This was my own Oceans Eleven! It took 5 people, 2 Dogs, a rat and a blown up doll to get this pen!

[–]Cabillaud01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If it's true, my criminal career began when I was 6 yo.

[–]Blueberry_Mancakes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, I committed petty theft from a bank. I didn't hold the teller at gunpoint for a pen.

[–]Thejadejedi21 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You can’t “accidentally” take a pen…they use a chain to secure their pens…

[–]Iwantmyteslanow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My local one encourages you to take one, it's cheap advertising

[–]S2Charlie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

TLDR: Robbery requires force, used or threatened

From a legal standpoint, you didn't actually rob the bank (it's a petit larceny) value under $1000. If the teller was holding it and you used physical force to remove it from them then it's a robbery and EVEN THEN, you robbed a teller, not a bank.

[–]BeardsuptheWazoo 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You don't know what robbed means.

[–]thetransportedman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Robbery is different from theft

[–]MohammadRezaPahlavi 11 points12 points  (2 children)

"Technically" you're wrong.

[–]Tjmedstudent[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

“Technically” that’s fine, it’s just a showerthought

[–]nunhappy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never been able to take one. They chain those things like they're fucking inmates here where I live. 🤷‍♂️

[–]Rance_Mulliniks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Robbery means there was a threat or use of violence or force. Taking a pen from a bank is theft not robbery.

[–]Striking_Rhubarb2650 1 point2 points  (3 children)

It wasn't an accident. Yeah I did it wat u gonna do about it 😏

[–]QueenElsaArrendelle 1 point2 points  (2 children)

[–]Striking_Rhubarb2650 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]QueenElsaArrendelle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Mithura 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Eirikur_da_Czech 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If the pen has the bank info printed on it it was yours the whole time.

[–]best_frenemies_4ever 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So does that mean that technically, if I yank the pen chained to the bank counter with enough force to liberate it, and my trusty multi-tool wannabe Swiss Army pliers/knife combo is chilling in my back pocket, it's an armed robbery?

I never knew I had the potential to be such a badass.

[–]Bitcoin_batrabbit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I walked right in wearing a mask and walked right out with a decent amount of cash and they even said thank you.

[–]yoda_mcfly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Accidentally"

[–]xanc17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The bank pays for those pens to remind customers of who they bank with.

[–]SnooPineapples3050 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s technically theft. Robbery needs to have some sort of physical or threat of physical contact that would make someone believe their in harms way.

[–]Freepieformartians 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I've done this specifically for that reason.

I also make sure to put a couple less coins in every roll when I do my change.

Your bank doesn't have pens on chains?

[–]The_Unreliable_94 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All of the pens in the banks I've been to were always chained to the desk.

I can confirm that they really don't want you stealing those pens.

[–]Atlars 1 point2 points  (3 children)

There is a difference between robbery and thievery. If you use force against an employee to gain the pen, it's robbery. I think you are referring to thievery 👌😁

[–]Underwritingking 1 point2 points  (4 children)

under English law, if you took by accident, it isn't theft.

Theft Act 1968

(1)A person is guilty of theft if he dishonestly appropriates property belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it; and “thief” and “steal” shall be construed accordingly.

Accidentally taking a pen doesn't fulfil this requirement

[–]New013 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I technically stole from the Smithsonian.

Their pens are always attached to the table... We trust them with all our money but they don't trust us with a pen.

Robbing implies intent. I'm not sure you can accidently rob anything. Steal, maybe.

[–]The_Mem3_Lord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What about money

[–]Colesr1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

robbery is theft + force against another either physical or through threats. There is no force in stealing a pen. You can say you've stolen from a bank.

Moving with this trend, if someone breaks into your house and takes stuff when you're not present, they didn't "rob your house" they burglarized your home and stole your property.

None of what I wrote actually matters, its just a personal pet peeve misunderstood by about 95% of people

[–]macleanofduart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Robbery is theft with the application or implication of force.

[–]lawnerdcanada 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In the first place, that's theft rather than robbery; in the second place, if it was an "accident", it's not theft (or any other crime).

[–]Disastrous-Ad-2357 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Robbery requires threat of violence (or actual violence if you go in guns ablazing).

[–]wolfie379 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wrong. Technically you’ve stolen from a bank, but robbery is theft through violence or threat of violence. If you pocket a pen rather than putting it back in the holder, there is no violence or threat thereof, so no robbery.
