I have read a couple of quick lines in others posts relating to the hecklers on the streets wanting to send you to dinner and give you chips etc... but I have to say I was amazed at how many there were this year. I wanted my wife to see the Cosmo and a few other casinos because we usually spent the majority of time in the B and simply ride to wherever our show might be. We walked from the B to Cosmo - to Aria/Crystals - to Hardrock/MM Shops - to Paris - back to B Sounds simple but between each stop at least two came up to us heckling, unfortunately these guys wont take a hint anymore. There are teams of them now instead of one single guy. At one point in time it only took a firm "No" or "No Thanks" and looking past them for them to leave you alone but it seems much much worse now. One guy from the escalators at the B walkway walked beside us yapping all the way to Cosmo. I know people have to make a living but I find it hard to believe Vegas is letting this get so bad. I'm very laid back and will give anyone the benefit of the doubt but it hurt the experience it was so bad. Since Vegas is about the experience I am a little surprised it has gotten this out of hand. Even in the MMshops around Hardrock I had to practically beat people off of me trying to sell me battery chargers. So I guess I am looking for two things - 1) who is paying these guys? 2) why is the town letting it happen? Again, to me it wasn't like before when you could simply keep walking and say no to get your point across. As of right now I have less problem with the porn slappers because I don't have to grab their advertisements and they don't run after you.
