Muse: Grand Theft Auto 5 a.m. Heist

I was looking forward to the release of the new Grand Theft Auto 5 video game this Spring … until the real-life bad guys showed up at 5 a.m. last Saturday and stole the car right off our driveway, while we slept. Wow! If you’ve got that kind of commitment and can handle that kind of pressure, why not just get a real job?

I hope the new Grand Theft Auto game comes out with different role-playing options: this time around, I’d rather play as a righteous undercover cop, living by his own rules of justice.

Epilogue

On Feb. 7, one week after we settled with our insurance company, the police found our Rav 4 – half-way across the country in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It was on a container ship bound for some overseas destination. Feels good to know that at least this time, crime didn’t pay.

On a related note, Rockstar Games unexpectedly announced a 6-month delay in the launch of Grand Theft Auto 5 … adding undercover cop role-playing functionality, no doubt …

  1. Greg-

    That really blows! I thought that was a US issue, not something you had to deal with in Canada. Hopefully there’s a new, better car coming courtesy of your insurance.

    And if you happen to be of the Deadhead persuasion like me, here’s a website that will bring you countless hours of joy: http://deadshow.blogspot.com/

    Hang in there!

    • Thanks Stu. Sooner or later, most U.S. Best (Worst) Practices get adopted here in Canada. Still sorting through the insurance replacement options. Sadly, if you like your car (and we did), this really makes you think twice about buying the same model again … just in case of a repeat performance.
