This is a question Tightwads

There's saving money, and there's being tight: saving money at the expense of other people, or simply for the miserly hell of it.

Tell us about measures that go beyond simple belt tightening into the realms of Mr Scrooge.

Grand Theft Auto
I've wasted countless hours watching him indoors playing this.

Every time he visits the hookers he beats them to death/runs them over and steals his money back.

I'm not sure this defines him a "tightwad" but I think perhaps it should be setting a few alarm bells ringing ...

It works in real life to.
True fact.

Standard procedure
as far as I'm concerned.

Also works in shops, hotels, taxis, etc. I consider it both more ethical and more inventive than standard theft/non payment.

It's a little known fact
That Jesus himself clubbed Mary Magdelen to death with a sock filled with sheep's feet.

Well my eyes have been opened!
I was looking for a career change, I think I'll strike "being a big, filthy ho" off the list now - thank you.

I think
you could be a small filthy ho. I think the smaller ones can do that doe eyed thing to prevent a really bad beating. It worked for Julia Roberts.

I dunno...
I think I'd've still chopped her into cubes.

I dunno
Unless you're madder than a fella who likes to give gerbils a home in his arse I think you could abstain.

Disagree - obviously I wouldn't want to lose my lady "V" signs to her
but I would quite happily bludgeon her to death.

Not only does he steal his money back
But its also a nice way of making a tidy profit as you usually "steal" back more than you paid for the services rendered in the first place.

I would call it enterprising.

(wouldn't particularly recommend it in the real world)

Doing that once in the game is normal
you do it because you've heard that you can. Doing it repeatedly... That's worrying.

I just beat them/run them over and over and over. Sod the money.

I liked to whack the hookers to death with a golf club
once I'd got rich enough not to need to, I'd just pick them up in a car. Drive to a cliff and cane it as fast as I could towards the edge, diving out at the last moment, leaving them trapped in a car hurtling to a certain, watery death.

What about in GTA?
No-one else was going to sink to that level of predictable crap-jokeness, so I felt I should.
