And Now for Something Completely Different

I came across these on flickr and thought they should be posted here cause if this isnt funny, I don't know what is.

Grand Theft Auto

At some point between the hours of 8:00pm and 8:30am Pacific Standard Time someone stole my car. I'm going to bet its in pieces by now, though I hope its alright and I get it back cause I really don't want a car payment. I'd say more then anything the emotion the whole thing evokes is annoyance. You can't do anything on the west coast without a car, its just not made for that type of living, carless living that is. On the good side, Enterprise Rent a car was way cool and got me a loaner asap. So now I'm rolling in a sweet Nissan Sentra. The girl that picked me up at my apartment tried to sell me on buying a new car from Enterprise's lot. Apparently its way cheaper and the cars arnt even used. So maybe I will look into that. I'm just hoping that the car does turn up and I can get back to life as usual. Other then that nothing much is going on. Man I just realized what a pain in the ass buying a new car is going to be. All the shopping around, scrounging up cash dealing with salesmen, THE lowest form of life. I guess I'm just lazy. If you told me my car would last me the rest of my life I would never buy a new one out of shear practicality. I mean you have to go through the whole process of buying a new car plus when you drive it off the lot the resale value automatically plummits to like depression era prices. So, while it would be a cool thing to get a new car/truck meh, just give me back my 97, biege, honda accord lx and I'll be happy, also please include the CDs that were in there and my new surfboard rack....DAMN that surfboard rack was BRAND new. At least I got to use it once and I got wax all over it. Now I'm going to have to burn a bunch of new cds from itunes. How funny is it that when I called my mom to get some insurance information from her and told her my car was stolen she blurts out, " oh it was those new hubcaps!" Haha, right mom that's what they wanted it for, brand new stock hubcaps. She actually laughed I think, as did my boss/brother-in-law and so did the other partner at my law firm. They thought it was pretty funny, and really what else are you going to do? Cause its so wierd. Who steels cars? Honestly? I mean if it ends up being involved in a high speed chase and totalled, I'd actually be as cool with that as I would be if I got the car back cause then I'll know it met a good end, well, exciting end anyways. So now I just am supposed to wait and see what happens. I think I'll go check out some used car places online meanwhile, see if I can't find a suitable replacement.
