    Yes. This.

    Plus..
    1. People who are literally having an abusive sexual relationship with the slot machine. Talking, stroking, slapping, cursing, fondling...
    2. People who are betting the absolute minimum on slots (min bet, 1 line) then throw a tantrum because their bonus isn't generating a handpay.
    3. Bachelorette groups screaming over a line hit.. On the Ellen slot machine.
    4. Anyone playing the Ellen slot machine.
    5. People who feed dollar bills into the $1 denom slot machine.. One per spin.
    6. People who didn't put in enough cash for minimum bet, then confused about why the buttons don't "work"..
    7. Piano players - people who do a beep-boop-beep button pressing routine before finishing on the spin button. Every single spin. Bravo, maestro.
    8. People who hit the service button when trying to find the spin button, then some unlucky casino host has to fix it without laughing/smirking.
    9. People who try to feed money in the wrong slot (player's card slot)
    10. People who strike up a casual conversation next to you, then ask for money 10 seconds in.
    Pretty sure my eyes have rolled out of the skull after a Vegas trip! :eek::confused::D

    You should be lenient with such people.
    Last year, on my first time in Vegas and on my very first time playing slots, I hit the service button, because I wanted to order a drink... (And I thought: Wow! How comfortable!)

    Somebody is just trying to get the perfect room, up high, facing the Strip, away from the elevator but not too far, recently remodeled, away from club noise, smoking or nonsmoking, negotiating the price of a refrigerator, b*tching about the resort fee, trying to avoid the early check-in fee {dot dot dot} ...

    Infants and toddlers in the casino late at night.

    Oh! Oh! This actually happened to me on one of my earlier trips to LV, downtown, possibly ElCo. My first encounter of the type ...

    I'm playing away at an old coin-dropper slot machine when a chain-smoking trailer-trashy type lady sits down beside me and starts playing, cursing like a drunken sailor on each non-hit.

    Then finally she says something like "Oh sh*t" and turns to me and says something like "Hey this machine is about to hit and I'm outa quarters, can you loan me some? I'll pay ya back when it hits!"

    I kind of roll my eyes when a young scantily clad woman asks if she can see my room. Come on...I wasn't born yesterday. What do I look like...A Hotel Room Guide? Don't answer that.

    1 - people who walk too slowly down the street, often three across.

    2 - dudes who like to show off their money, usually these aren’t overly wealthy people, just folks trying to look like ballers in Vegas.

    3 - bachelorette parties who think the entire bar/restaurant/casino/club should revolve around them. Because they’re a group of young attractive women. Same goes to people celebrating their birthdays and asking for comp drinks and shots.

    4 - people who believe in a “hot machine” “hot dice” or that “you took the dealers bust card”. It’s all math people.

    Pedestrians on the strip who ignore crosswalk signals. This is especially true when thru traffic is stopped but turning traffic is trying to cross the road. (Think Harrah's, Mirage, Venetian …)

    People who play STP videi poker, or 100 play machines on one credit. I have seen them play 1 penny at a time! Machines like that are limited, MOVE to a regular machine and play your 1 credit at a time so someone who actually wants to play the game as intended can play!

    Nothing, if I'm in Vegas I'm happy and the people around me can (virtually) do anything without eliciting an eye roll. Unless they are rude. Rude people get the full wrath of the eye roll!

    I agree. If it doesn't affect me, it doesn't bother me---if it does have some bearing on my well-being, then more than my eyes roll.

    At the blackjack table the player, reasonably coherent, who cannot count his/her cards if their life depended on it. They also take all day to decide to take a hit on an obvious hand like A2 to a 6 showing.

    I'm all for helping newbies but if math greater than single digits is that much of a challenge, please stay on the slots.

    Tapping the screen on the slots
    hitting the spin button too hard.
    the people and workers that hang around for a handout on handpays.
    Homeless in the hotel either of next to the slot you want to use (cromwell, flamingo are where I see this on the strip).
    Club promoters on the street blocking the path.
    people blocking the entrance to restaurants and areas waiting on their party.
    story topper, the person that has to one up the last story.
    flashy cash, whether you have a lot or not, especially when they don't.
    People who crowd the shooter.
    Blackjack unwritten rules.
    Screaming over small wins.
    anyone trying to eat at the tables (come on you've been here 30minutes, you can't be that hungry or you would
    have eaten before you bought in, or finish your food before buying i n.
    outsiders that tell you that you should have bet a high house edge bet after the fact when it finally comes out.

    People that brag so long and so loud that anyone within 25 yards can hear it.
    Even worse if they are skunk drunk.

    Nothing much of anything bothers me in Vegas. If I see odd things I enjoy it for the moment.

    There was one time at Suncoast though, where a women with long, manicured and clicky fingernails decided to riffle her chips at the blackjack table.

    Lady, we get your nails look nice but we're playing blackjack - not poker. No need to play with your chips.
