When I get 9 out of 10 in events, on the last day I set an alarm to wake myself up every single hour of the night (it usually still doesn't get me the tenth which is annoying).
I've turned down invites from friends to go clubbing because I know if I did I'd be robbed but further, it would throw my things out of sync.
I've cancelled a date with a girl because my upscale would have had to be collected at that particular time.
I have deprived myself of sleep in order to collect from buildings due to paranoia of the threat posed by a particular cold mafia member.
I have refused to go out with my family so that I could play crime city, open event boxes, collect from buildings, keep everything in sync and keep up personal wars against players to save face.
I've basically given up all my time, almost continuously for the entire day, for the past month solely to play this game. Leaving it behind only to go to work and only for the bare minimum of sleep when no event was on.
