The deal here is that your first comment didn't make any sense. Also SnyderGuy is right... having money on the pocket is useless. You can't lose it, you still lose money when you die (different from dropping it). The mugger is useless then, would be exciting to chase one with 150K dollars or so, and if that could be exploited, of course... but that's another matter. The first day everybody was scared of loosing money so everyone was running to the ATM's... now nobody gives a f*ck.
What's the point then? Nothing at all. And yeah, I don't get why everybody needs a joke to show-off... even when the joke can't apply...
Since when are jokes only for showing off? Relax.
I disagree about the mugger being useless, even if he doesn't pull 100k+ from one player (How would one dude grab 150K or so from a guy anyway?), he still makes for a good laugh.
In almost every new thread there's someone making fun of the OP for no reason. And I'm not crying about that, but becomes annoying when that start to mislead the thread, every one quote the same spam comment and potential threads gets locked (not only my case).
EDIT: Don't wanna be a boring prick, but this is becoming more trollish every day.
The purpose of the mugger (even when can be useful to steal somebody's tank or just messing with friends) keeps useless... stealing only 5k isn't a big deal. I don't get why the money can't be managed like in single player... sharing money with a second character is also dumb... a level 5 can get two high end apartments with super cars. Another example is when you don't have enough cash for something, you print money with your phone but the money used is the one in the bank... again, no sense.
Bank money should be only for buying vehicles and properties. The money you carry for ammo, LSC, stores and clothes. Then the mugger could have a major role more important than just trolling.
