I had bought the 24 hour Buffet special deal in Vegas. It was on my last day of using the special deal of expiration date of 11:47a.m. I was in line and there were four persons in front of me. I asked all of them if I could get in front of them because my dead-line time was going to expire in a few minutes. I showed them all my receipt. They all said "NO". One lady said I should have planned better and gotten there earlier. I told them all that it wasn't my fault that the buffet cashiers had stopped checking in because they said we had to wait until the checked people line was smaller. We all had to wait until those people were seated. I asked the cashier "what would happened if my time expired". She said, "I would lose out and not be able to get into the buffet". She almost let me check-in when the people in line all YELLED NO! So she told me to go to the back of the line. I went to the back of the line and hoping I would be able to get in on time. While I was waiting in line I noticed that one couple got checked-in and had finished paying and then decided to have a long conversation with the cashier. I sensed they were taking their time so it would slow down the line and I would miss the dead-line. My distorted thinking? I decided to ask a lady with four kids if I could get in front of her but she said she was in a hurry and needed to get checked-in. So I waited behind her. I finally got checked in with just two minutes left on my time. The cashier had the nerve to ask me if I had waited at the end of the line. "DUH".... I told her I was behind that lady with the kids who was talking with the other cashier. The lady asked her four kids who was planning to eat which was a stupid question. Then I heard her say that she didn't plan to eat so her kids could eat. She only had three free passes to eat at the buffet. I turned to look at her and I noticed she left with her kids because she wasn't willing to pay the extra money for all of them. "CRUEL SHOES". PART 1 of my trip to Vegas. I was there from June 26th until June 29th. I will write part 2 later. LucyR.
