I've never, ever understood how someone can put their mitts in the company till and not know that they'll eventually get caught.
It's an addiction, I suppose, the more one does the more one wants, or something like that.

I think you hit the nail on the head. It's the same reasoning that goes into, "This time I'll win the jackpot" or "This time I will just have one drink" or "This time he won't hit me." Denial is a very powerful and very destructive force.
