Free grapes

Today I was at Supabarn getting some fruit. While I was grabbing some apples I noticed 2 people in the space of a few minutes pick some grapes and eat them. And they weren't the people you would normally associate with theft. One was a well-dressed older lady and the other was a middle-aged asian lady. Has it somehow become socially acceptable to steal? I realise it's only grapes and would have only cost less than a dollar, but these people didn't even look guilty. What has happened to society or am I making too much of this?

Perhaps they're checking the quality of the grapes. At the markets for example, you're given these freebies to try and convince you that you're buying quality.

On the other hand, how can you pirate TV shows off the Internet, then write a rant about people stealing grapes?
