It is better to ask than to steal.
Many people are afraid to ask for something, when they are in need.
But the elderly advise us, "If you do not ask for what you need, you will be tempted to get what you need by stealing, or by some other unethical means."
So don't be afraid to ask. There is no shame in that.
The shame is in stealing.
