I always thought of the Palms as a locals casino and have always done pretty well on their loose VP machines and promotions (won 3 cruises in promotions). When I became familiar with this board, I was surprised to hear all the negativity about the wanna be, and ******bags that supposedly frequent the place, but boy I saw it over July 4th weekend. This is what happened. This dude was smoking in a non-smoking area and these 2 gals lit into him, giving him the third degree and very quickly it escalated into a full blown screaming match, at first they are 5 feet apart and as they screaming escalates, they inch closer and closer together. From what they were saying, you could tell there was some kind of history between them with references to last week, the same ???? Cusswords were flying but before it got out of control Security did intervene and the smoker was asked to leave. At least Security didn't have to throw anyone to the ground, which was good, since the smoker was probably late 60's and the 2 gals were at least late 50s probably early 60s. 4 days later and I am still chuckling!
