    Yeah, pretty much. Vegas is my happy place. I go there for good times and no drama. Sometimes there are problems and I can either let them ruin my trip or move on. I usually move on.

    Vegas or anywhere, I'm kinda of the mindset I want to receive what I ordered/expected. I'm not going to go postal or suck up into a crying ball of goo if there's a snafu, but it seems kinda silly not to expect to get what you've requested and paid for, no? Is that easy or not easy?

    Most definitely.

    I usually take solo trips to Vegas, it's my escape from the world. So, I have nobody to answer to but myself, I come and go as I please, I eat what I want, when I want. I could be bombed by noon, and sleep it off for the evening round two....

    It does not get any simpler or better than that...

    I am the same as Ken, I expect to receive what I pay for. My expectations are much different when I go to SW at Wynn vs The Cheesecake Factory for example. I don't make a fuss if I don't receive what I expect in food or service, I just won't go back to that establishment again.

    I just enjoy life. Take things as they come. You might not get another crack at them and at worst you have a funny story to tell people.

    At first thought I figured I was easy to please but on second thought I realize I am not. With food, I am difficult to please. Granted, I can enjoy mcds or sinatra. That is because I find both tasty. However if my food at any establishment is not as anticipated, I will send it back. I will definitely send it back and ask for a new one. I am picky about my food but not picky about an establishment unless it has food that I typically do not like.

    For hotels, I must now stay on the strip. However I will not stay at a hotel with a room decor that I do not like. For example, I would stay in Excalibur upgraded room over Bellagio standard because I like the room decor in the former but not the latter. I would stay in Wynn or Palazzo over Bellagio for the same reason. I would also choose Quad standard decor over every standard decor in all of CET except for rio ipanema which is cute. Ballys standard is nice now too.

    The reality is that most shows in Vegas do not impress me. But the few that do I continue to return to.

    As a happy low roller, it would seem that I am easy to please but if you look deeper I am quite selective and few things impress but when they do I am super gungho.

    All I need is Fat Tuesday and a Slot machine or a Craps Table.
    This is pretty easy in Vegas.:beer::beer:

    Simple times and low expectations is all I prepare for when going to Vegas.

    I'd like to think so. If I feel wronged, which hasn't happened in Vegas yet, I generally will not say anything and just move on.

    It depends.. I guess. I'm pretty agreeable. I usually end up being the one that spearheads any trips to Vegas, people trust my opinion.

    In Vegas I always expect high value, and I usually get it. I hate when I spend $500 on show tickets, and the show is terrible. Or $300 on a meal and it's less than stellar. Just like I know I can spend $39 to stay at Mandalay Bay on certain days, so I'll probably never spend $200 to stay there. You do throw around money in Vegas... I don't want it to be wasted (except on gambling haha)

    I am easy to please, but have major stomach issues so it can look like im not. I also expect good service and can come across as a witch if people try to pull one over on me. I am a manager & a server, i hear it all. I have also worked in a hotel so i know what to expect and what i should be getting. I do not ask for much, most of it is common sense.

    I'm happy as long as the drinks are flowing, the tables aren't packed, and the boobs are huge and plentiful. Those are my only expectations...other than that I could care less.

    I'll eat gas station sushi with a hobo if it's proposed to me in the right way. I'll sit next to the stinky guy that talks to much as long as he doesn't take my 10. I'll bang the ugly chick that's missing a leg as long as she can at least stick the remaining one behind her head.

    When i've got nothing left but memories and stories...I'd prefer to be able to tell the funny ones instead of all the times I was too busy trying to make life 'perfect' to have fun.

    As long as they give me every single thing I ask for, I'm very easy to please.:evillaugh

    Seriously, the only "must have" request I need is a room close to the elevators. COPD makes those long walks down the hallways a no-no. I don't care if the view is of the parking garage with the eastern mountains in the background. I already know what the Strip looks like.

    The only time I boiled over about shiddy service was at BLT Burger. I got my money back except for the milkshake, which was great. The rest of the time, I'm as mellow as a clam. (Snicker)

    As long as no restaurant overcooks my rare steak, I'm easy to please. If they do, it gets sent back.

    Everything else I can handle and usually don't complain.

    I don't know. Here's what I expect. You decide:

    Las Vegas is about rewarding excellent service. Know your job and do it well. Be timely but don't rush yourself or me. Be pleasant- even friendly, but not gushy. Keep your promises. If you can't or won't do something, say so, no hard feelings. Treat me with the same respect and attentiveness you would give to a wealthy player. If you do these things, I will respect you back and tip better than some wealthy people you've worked for.

    Years ago I was a waiter at a fine dining steakhouse (not Vegas) and believe it or not I had more customers send back and more worried/upset about whether or not we had dressed their .99c baked potato rather then the doneness o their $50 steak lol
