    I'm going to print out business cards that say - I'm with my wife - Leave me alone! (in English and Spanish) Walk down the strip, slap them on my arm and hand them out to the groups handing our hooker cards.
    Then I'm going to hand our copies of want ads to the pan handlers and annoying characters.

    Do you think I will get shot?

    How are they going to take them? Usually both hands are full: The left with a huge stack of cards, and the right hand clicking the 10 or so cards to give to you!

    Now if you made cards that said ICE(Immigration and Customs Enforcement) or LaMigra............then now were talkin. :nworthy:

    Don't forget to make your own CD's to hand back to the guys passing their's out on the bridges.

    I understand your frustration but just ignore them - they let you pass without a hassle. There not near as many as there once was and they are not anywhere near as aggressive.

    The condo/show tickets hawkers are much worse than the porn slappers. At least the slappers don't step in front of you and try to lure you in with the fake greeting.

    Even the condo pimps were not near as bad last week as they were in Sept. In Sept I had one step out in front of me and block our path near Planet Hollywood. I lowered my shoulder and kept on going. Plowed him good as I am a big guy at 240+. He went sprawling all over the sidewalk and had a hissie fit about it but he did not follow me for more.

    I was an ass for plowing the guy but after politely saying NO to about a dozen of them in a short distance - having one step in front of me and block our path was my breaking point. At least it did not cost me money for business cards which will be thrown on the ground with the porn cards.

    Don't print out too many. The porn slappers numbers were way down our last trip.

    I'm having a shirt made that says:

    I don't want your fucking timeshare.

    When they ask me when I got it/am I going to any shows/where I'm from, I will just politely ask if they know how to read

    Thanks for the input, but I started the post totally tongue in cheek. I wouldn't waste my time with any of them.

    Porn slapper leaflets, I try to take as many as possible and even ask/beg for more.......don't think they can understand English......but still get as many as possible and then throw them in the round file cabinet right in front of them if possible. More fun then losing money at the BJ table....LOL

    You know it's gotten pretty bad when I find the porn slappers the LEAST annoying of the bunch. I'll take them over the time share hawkers, people shoving CD's in your faces, cartoon characters, people collecting for "charity", homeless trying to get larger donations by having an animal, etc.

    Youre not an ass

    He got what he deserves for trying to intimidate you physically. You should have stood over him and yelled "now go out and get a real job !".

    Well, at least it gave some of us an avenue to vent.

    One of the "wanna see a show?" guys grabbed my GF by the arm our last trip because she was looking down at her phone as she walked by.

    Likely a good thing she waited until the next day to tell me. I had already got security called on me after we got long hauled, didn't need more trouble in one trip.

    I hear you Capt.

    We'll be out there the end of March. Maybe Mrs. JG's kick boxing class will pay off.

    I agree with this, especially the part in bold

    Animal control should patrol the strip and evaluate these dogs and make sure they're maintained in a safe and healthy manner or take them

    I don't have a problem with porn slappers. They never get in my face or chase after me when I don't take a card. If you want free porn you can have it, if not you just keep walking. Time share hawkers and the CD guys can be a bit annoying just because they sometimes start walking with you and keep talking. But really the only people that annoy me on the street are the guys who set up tables to sell sunglasses or whatever right on the pedestrian bridges. Those things are already clogged up enough without their big tables of junk taking up space.

    I feel like the porn slappers are NOTHING compared to what they were a few years ago. Fully lining the stretch from Flamingo to Harrah's and getting in your face.

    None of those people bug me. I guess being a grouchy old fuck has it's benefits.

    A few years back, though, in the Venetian, a lady approached me and wanted to know if my wife and I were going to see any shows. I was aware of what was going on so I said "No, my wife died last week and I'm in Vegas to celebrate". Stopped her dead in her tracks.

    Another time, I said to a porn slapper "I like boys" upon which he reached to the bottom of the stack and produced a boy card. Unbelievable.

    I remember seeing a guy once go along the porn slappers line and take cards from each of them, when he got to the end of the line he turned round and tried to then hand back the cards to the porn slappers while shouting at them "now see how you like it"
