My favorite (from the personal stories) is: "I haven't been carjacked once. Louisville is awesome." Now that's just (intentionally, I assume) funny.

Actually, here in Chicago I've only been jacked once...by the city. I parked on a street that was 'permit only' (I didn't even know they existed) and my car was gone. I thought it was stolen, but by the time I realized about the permit sign and tracked down the lot that had it, the lady said "Yes, we have your car....Oh wait....it's been crushed." I bet they are told to be nonchalant so you are just too disoriented to get angry. I remember responding, "Guuuhhh...so that's...it?!?!" "Yeah."

I couldn't very well scream my car back from the grave.

Yes, indeed. In fact a year later, there was a Sun-Times cover story about this happening, and it turns out they usually don't even crush them--they sell them to towing companies for about $100. Even if the car was worth $12,000. Long live Al Capone!
