One of the things we enjoy most about Vegas are the interesting people we meet at the bar, tables or where ever else we may be. We don't bother people if they want to be left alone. To me one of the best things is sitting at blackjack table with fun people for a couple hours and sharing stories, talking smack or whatever. Invariably, each trip we meet the "most fascinating man in the world". The person who want to tell you all the awesome things he/she has done, how much money they make or why they are so much better than you. These people tend to have diarrhea of the month. After ten minutes you want to throw the flag and say bulls***. It isn't true. One the worst instances is when I was at Mandalay Bay at $25 table and this guy sat down. The dealer, during the reshuffle, asked why we were here and where were we from. When I said DC, the dealer asked whether I was in politics and I said no and that I worked in the legal profession. Apparently, the new guy was in the legal profession and started to proclaim how he made money hand over fist and that he was one of the top lawyers where he was from. This guy was talking and talking and it was apparent that he wasn't knowledgable about the law at all. He said things that made no sense and I had to bit my lip to stop from laughing out loud. We were all rolling our eyes. The pit boss who overheard all the BS told us that after he left that the night before he was proclaiming at another table that he was a doctor. Another time, a 23 year old kid was bragging that he was in Vegas to spend his big bonus he received as a consultant for a big IT company. He talked about all the clubs he was going to hit, the high-end booze he was going to drink, and the big time gambling he was going to do, although he was sitting at a $15 blackjack table. He proceeded to explain why he got such a big bonus. It was due to consulting work for he did client X. He explained all the things he did to help client X. I hadn't really said anything at this point but I stepped in and told him that I worked for the same big IT company and that he needed to refrain from talking anymore about this subject. He knew, based on his position, that he was over exaggerating, if not out right lying, about his role with client X. I took him aside to remind him that he should be happy that it was me and not someone working for Client X or part of his leadership chain. This a big no no at my company. There must be something in the water or alcohol that make people do this.
