    Sit in the sportsbook long enough watching the games and you usually get this at least once. A guy will sit down beside you & start talking loudly about all the great predictions he has for the upcoming games, his guaranteed winners, and about all the big game wins he's already had. Then he'll lean in a little closer in a softer voice & tell you about how things are running a little tight, about how he's just a little short right now, how he's tapped out and could use just a little help.

    I know how to use them but I avoid them because of the people that don't . I always use the doors.

    When I'm playing on a VP machine on the left most machine of three. The people that sit down on the middle machine next to me and light up and hold the cigarette in their left hand and the smoke goes in my face. What you can't sit one machine over?

    I play craps most every trip and in my experience, craps players are the most superstitious folks in the casino. I try to be unobtrusive (as you were) and just let them be themselves, but it does crack me up sometimes. And you’re right: sometimes it gets ridiculous!

    It seems to me that when I am playing VP early morning in a bank of 6 or more machines with the same games on each one, no matter which machine I’m playing, the next player often chooses to sit right next to me, smoking or not. That makes my eyes roll, and I cash out and move.

    I guess I might eye roll on occasion but I'm sure I've been the target of many other's eye rolls, especially in my early Vegas days, so I tend to be more tolerant and try not to be annoyed or judge too much....

    Totally. And either way, you can just go to a slot machine and combine them, and then cash out one TITO at the kiosk.

    If you yell Monkey! You are getting an eye roll.
    If you criticise my play. BJ or any you are getting an eyrroll.
    Beat the buttons or abuse machine....
    Scream over a small win.
    If you call Fremont "old town" I hate that for some reason.
    On a flight you try to go to bathroom when the seatbelt light is on. Or line up three deep. The latter really gets me for security reasons.
    When pilots have to use bathroom on frontier they will block the aisle with drink cart and people still go up. I now will spin and block the aisle myself since I'm usually on the end.

    One thing that tides me over between trips is watching review videos on YouTube. Reviews of rooms, restaurants, casinos, etc...

    But in about 50% of these, the person is acting like they're just trying to come up with any little thing to criticize. I can't tell you how many reviews I've seen of hotel rooms where the person is walking through and saying that it's filthy and run down, and then they show like one microscopic piece of snagged carpet in an otherwise pristine room (a room, mind you, that they were comped... a quality room that would cost at least $200/nt in any other major city). I can't help but be all, "O M GEEE SHUT UP YOU'RE IN VEGAS JUST ENJOY YOURSELF YOU LUCKY S.O.B ... EYE ROLLLLLL"

    Similar to others, but the one that gets me is the people who are on the ground floor waiting for an elevator, and crowd themselves right in front of the elevator door. You're in a hotel with THOUSANDS of rooms! What are the odds that there won't be someone on the elevator that needs to get out before you can get in? In the office building where I work, I see the same people do that over and over again - they never learn!

    Has this one been said yet?:

    People who stop at the bottom of an escalator or just outside the elevator.

    Ha. In the Seattle airport the train literally says to stand clear of the doors as it arrives...and then people immediately start to crowd the door so no one can get off without bumping into the crowd. It’s maddening.

    The hot Craps game going, numbers are hitting, hard ways are being pressed, and the idiot who has to join in for $20.00 and crowd the shooter whose next throw is a Seven Out. Really!!!
