In my defense, there was an important raid and i was the main tank!
You did what you had to do...I'm assuming you stole this money from a parent or grandparent and not a liquor store. Speaks more to the frenzy of WoW, more importantly could you imagine doing that now for video game?
Not really. that is something kids do in the frenzy of a new fad.
As an adult i would call behavior like that pathological.
It is so easy to get your hands on any new game even if you can't afford it through pirating so i just don't see why you would it nowadays.
