The thread about the porn slappers made me want to vent a little. Call me crazy, but aren't the timeshare hawkers infinitely more irritating than the porn slappers used to be? I mean at least you could walk past the slappers relatively undisturbed. There's seemingly no getting away from the timeshare jerks. My wife made eye contact with one (big mistake) once and the idiot chased us from the escalators near Bally's down past PH before he finally gave up with the generous salutation, "well f* you then, mother-f*ers." I was on my to clock the guy when my wife pulled me back. Anybody figure out the magic sauce for keeping them away? We've gotten to the point that we avoid walking sections of the Strip where they're most heavy, and try to keep people between us and them where possible. I'm wondering if brandishing a taser might help. Probably not.
