Today I finally relented and picked up a rental car (in case you're wondering, a smokin' hawt Nissan Sentra, I am SO getting laid this weekend with that hot piece of ass!). While the Enterprise guy was filling out the necessary paperwork, he asked me what happened to my car. I expected him to be mildly shocked or something, but nope. Not only was I not the only person to have their ride jacked, I WAS THE FOURTH PERSON that day picking up a car due to vehicular theft.
And get this: one guy picked up a rental car a few days ago because his ride was stolen...and then someone stole his rental car! Oh man, that guy's karma must be seriously fucked. I realize living in a big city comes with it's risks, car theft being one of them. But the Enterprise guy said in the last few weeks there has been a huge increase on car theft. Who knows if this is due to the shit state of the economy, or swine flu or what-fuck-else-ever, but we are certainly living in interesting times.
