After solving 3 cases i didn't get a favor. I had to solve a fourth case to get it. This has happened a few times.

Now it has also happened to a couple of detectives in my agency.

Does anyone know why?

NO!! Don't PM me! I'll just babble on and never stop!!

Uh, the thing I should have said, if the count is out of sync for some reason, you may not notice until the NEXT favour... so you do a favour, think after 3 cases you'll have a favour but no!
And then you think the rule isn't true. But it is. It really is. It is true. Uhhuh.

ROFL. Okay, Leddie, Stop. There ya go. ;-)

Everybody take a good look at that contraption sitting before you. From now on, I guarantee this marvelous piece of brilliant human engineering that people call a computer, and all the programs and pieces in it will never ever malfunction, screw up, delete anything you don't want it to, or in any other way go oops EVER AGAIN.

Now take a good look out your window. See that big ol' gray blob that you've never seen there before?? That's the Brooklyn Bridge, and it's yours, all yours, for the bargain-basement price of $20. Cash only, sorry no checks please.

Now, how many of y'all really believe Choice A? How many believe Choice B? C'mon, raise those hands up high. Don't be shy now....

For those who went with Option C, None of the Above, you get the Gold Star. YYYAAAYYYY!!!!!! Good for you!!! Congratulations!!! Way to go!! ;-D

What's the point to all this idiocy, you ask?? Bottom line, people, use your brains. We all know computers and the systems they contain aren't 100% perfect, and God help the idiot who expects them to be.

So you didn't get a favor after three cases, or even a fourth. Big fat hairy deal. Don't bother pm'ing anybody. Unless you go 20-30 without one, trust me, it ain't panic material. Your favor will come.

(Hope that slows down the onslaught of pm's to Ben and Leddie a bit....;-)

oh, i knew i'd seen this post somewhere before. saves me starting my own.
ready? here goes...
i have had the same problem!! i've just done 5 cases without getting any favours. i mean, i've just solved 5 non-favour cases, and haven't travelled. still no favour.
ok, from reading the replies above i guess that no-one knows the answer but i wanted to jump up and down about it since i'm trying to get a contact.
