Ever traveled to Vegas with people who are under-funded as far as bankroll and travel expenses and un-disciplined to the point where they are broke after a day or two? Then have them follow you around with sad puppy eyes and droopy frowns? Had them sit next to you at the machines and listening to them occasionally sigh.... Aside from making a note to never go with them again, how do you deal with this while still in Vegas? And how do you tell them "NO" nicely the next time they want to tag along again? These are really nice people, it just stresses me out and puts a damper on the trip when they do this. I end up giving them money to play and footing the dining bill. Then I dodge the question when they ask when I'm going to Vegas again. How do you deal with these "Vegas companions"?
