Why do some people have to be so nasty?

    I did an overnight trip to two of the Indiana riverboats this week. The stop at the first one went fine. I made $317 at the Crazy 4 Poker table. I drove down river to the one I had a room at (much nicer rooms of the two). I was playing C4P there (doing a slow bleed :cry:). The table was crowded. One of the local regulars was there. He has a reputation for being grumpy and, at times, downright nasty towards female players. There was one seat open to his immediate left. Another regular, a Vietnamese woman and her husband, a Vietnam war vet, walked up to the table. She went to sit down next to Mr. grumpy. He went into a very nasty racist tirade about being a Vietnam vet and would not put up with her sitting next to him (I was told later he had given here a hard time during a previous visit). Her husband was very mad at this and I thought there was going to be a fight, but Mr. grumpy went stomping off in a huff. The dealer told her bosses about it on her break and, when she came back, gave us the impression Mr. grumpy won’t be allowed back in the place. Mr. grumpy is a high level player there, next to the highest level in the players club.

    Late last year, I was a C4P table alone at the same casino when one of their high rollers sat down and started giving the dealer and the pit boss a hard time about the way he was being dealt the cards. He had an arrogant attitude. This made me mad, so I colored up and left before I said anything to make matters worse. A short time later, the pit boss found me and asked me to fill out an incident report because this guy’s actions chased me off the table. I found out on this latest visit, this guy has a history of racist tirades against Hispanic players and just being a demanding jerk at any game he played. He has been banned from all 5 Indiana riverboats.

    On the bright side, on the second day of this week’s trip, I went on a heater on the C4P table and won $2000 on a $200 buy in ($5 table). I wound up with a $1300 profit for the trip,

    There are fifty billion reasons why people are so nasty but only one way in which you need to respond - with class.......even if it's a classy well executed left hook! ;)

    Seriously, some people are so bitter and twisted that a short interaction with them will not alter their ways and if it is just that, it's not worth expending your energy over - shake your head, realise that you have a far better life and outlook and just carry on with your own thing. :)

    Some people are just not happy unless they are unhappy. And some try to be very happy!! Ignoring is the best plan in the short term; denying future access is one defense in the longer term.

    I live in Los Angeles and when I meet up with a mean nasty person I just run away as fast as I can. People can call me names and they have. I report them right away to their bosses. I recently had a bad experience. I told his boss and also the NBC Station on how mean a worker was to me. The NBC T.V. reporter had a talk with the boss.
    I decided just to let it go because we can't let mean people affect us in a negative manner. I just send that person some bad vibes and talk real bad about that person said to me. I know that those mean people do get bad KARMA when they are mean to innocent people. That is my belief because I see it all the time.

    I try to be nice to people but there are times when I know I am safe to talk back to a person who says something mean to me because there is security around me and they will protect me. Since I am a female I prefer to just walk away.
    Some people are just plain CRAZY, SOCIOPATH or PSYCHO. You can't talk sense to them because they just are too nuts.

    Wormhole - it's nice to see you took the high road; getting into it with any stranger in today's world, no matter the provocation, can be extremely dangerous. Let staff or security handle it. I tend to ignore and/or walk away, if egregious, I call it to the attention of someone to handle.
    A couple years ago, I was playing two of my favorite slot machines at the same time on a carousel type arrangement, and this obnoxious guy kept coming up and asking when I was going to be through, I said probably a half hour or so, but maybe longer. Another lady right around the corner was also playing two machines, but he never approached her. All of the machines on that bank of machines were occupied, but for some reason he was only interested in my mine. Then all of a sudden he goes into this screaming and yelling rampage and yells to me in German, loud enough for the whole casino to hear, " you are an F'Ing, greedy, Schwein-Hund" - not realizing I speak German and understood exactly what he said. I stood up and yelled "security" and pointed and gestured wildly at the guy, and he stomped off just as security was coming around the corner. They know me well at that casino and apologized that they didn't get there sooner - I blew it off and several players came over and commiserated with me blew it off. As Karma would have it, I started winning and eventually cashed out one ticket over $300, and the other over $600..never saw that "Schwein-Hund" again....

    I don't understand people sometime. in fact I don't even know people like the ones mentioned. I guess I won't let myself get to know these people. I'm thinking they don't have many friends, and if they do, I wouldn't want to know any of them either. Billions of people in this world so I'm sure that there are millions who are a-holes. Unfortunately we are going to run into some of them every once in a while.

    I am glad you were able to walk away from those incidents. As a previous poster stated you never know the real state of mind of individuals and what they are capable of doing.

    The older I get, Sunday is my 51st b-day, the more I'm starting to think some of these really mean people are losing it upstairs. I use to wonder if they were maybe drunk or on something or are just jerks naturally?? Now I'm starting to wonder more and more if the older mean ones are going senile or getting early stage Alzheimer's or?? This guy older since he's a Vietnam vet, and being a veteran may play into his bad attitude also in a few different ways.... It's good to take the high road tho whenever possible.

    I had not thought of possible issues upstairs on the vet. I am not too far behind him. I am 59, just missed the tail end of the Vietnam war by 2 or 3 years. Fortunately, he was the one who left the table in anger, leaving every one else wondering what his problem was.

    The guy in the other story appeared to be in his late 20s, very young looking. I wonder if his problem was more ego driven.

    It's funny, I am probably considered one of the least racist people around because of the diversity in people I hang out with and work with. It really bothers me when race is brought up at the casino. I have heard many times from other people that "I would have won if it weren't for that -insert any random race here- dealer!!" I get it. People are born how they are born, raised how they are raised, but to blame a dealer because you are losing is just plain stupid to me. Now to blame a dealer for being cold, not friendly, mean, etc. is completely acceptable. I guess being a dealer many moons ago for a short time doesn't help.

    I was at Pala Casino awhile back and this idiot hit the straight flush bonus in UTH. He was complaining every single hand before that that he lost and getting heated with the dealer and some of the other players. He collected 10% of the 121k and gave each of us at the table $50. Wow, how nice! What did he give the dealer? $25. One green chip. His excuse? "I don't like Asian dealers." I ended up giving the money he gave me to the dealer. Three others followed my lead.

    After the guy got up, the pit boss and dealer both thanked us for that. I guess this was another person who is mad at the world and taking it out on others at the casino. This wasn't the first time this has happened with him. He has been removed a few times for excessive foul language and rude treatment of others. I am a firm believer in Karma, but I'm hoping he is getting his ass kicked somewhere else as well.
