    What are some funny things you have seen?

    I'll start, I'm in line at the Wynn Buffet and these 6 guys just cut in front of everyone in line, normally I'd say something but I just let it go. As they go to pay they are told they are not welcome because they are wearing tank tops and sandals. I just laugh as they leave.

    Also I found it funny when the people with the strollers get the boot at Wynn.

    Yes -strollers are banned. I think registered guests can have them but that is it. And not even sure if that is still accurate.

    Outside Flamingo and Bill's someone had a Kermit (the Frog) doll leaning against a wall with a beer bottle next to him, a pair of panties around his little neck, an empty box of smokes nearby, and a cardboard sign that said "It Ain't Easy Being Green." He had a little Sucrets tin on his lap where passersby were depositing spare change.

    My bride and I would walk by that area all week and usually Kermit was there. Sometimes not, but everybody needs a break!

    On one walk by we found a woman who was talking to him.
    Kermit wasn't answering her.
    Perhaps he had a frog in his throat! :D

    Ok I have another one that just happened. I'm playing blackjack at Flamingo and the guy on the left of me was telling this older guy how he should play constantly. The older gentleman got fed up and stood up and started hitting the guy with his cane telling him to knock it off. When the older gentleman sat back down his dentures flew out of his mouth and hit the dealer.

    This trip so far has been weird for me. First I get long hauled by Lyft and now this. I'm afraid of what's to come lol.

    I was sitting at the Margaritaville bar one afternoon sipping a cold Landshark draft, when two bleary eyed young guys walked up beside me and one of them started to climb over the bar only to be pushed back by the bartender. " I want to jump in the blender", says this guy who is obviously very drunk. The bartender tells him that he can't do that and then pushes him back again after he makes another attempt to climb up on the bar. "You'll go to jail!" the bartender warns. The two idiots stand there for a couple of minutes arguing whether jumping in the big "blender" behind the bar is worth jail. The more "sober" of the two wins out and convinces his buddy that maybe they should give up on the idea and then stagger away.

    I was walking through the Barbary Coast casino one afternoon and there was an old lady sitting at a bank of slot machines and was playing four machines a once. She played the one in front of her, the two on either side and then she would use her cane to reach over to a machine to her left and hit the play button...all the while puffing on her cigarette.

    Two crap table crew stories from the Stardust:
    1. Shooter throws hard and one of the dice goes flying into the walkway... a guy bends over, picks it up & starts looking at it... stick asks him to give it back to the table... the guy is oblivious for a second or two... stick repeats himself - louder this time - and guy comes out of his trance & returns it to the crew...stick immediately says, "Man thought he found himself a souvenir".
    2. I have a $5 hard-8 working and it hits... they pay me $45...I ask where my other $5 is & they tell me it's still on the hard-8. I tell them I want the $5...they slide it over...next roll...hard-8.... stick holds the dice...taps his stick on the table & loudly announces to the table, pointing the stick at me, "Man saved himself $5"

    Also at the Stardust - blackjack tables were packed one night & me and my buddy were having a difficult time finding two open seats at the same table...well, the Stardust had this lower-to-the-floor table (shoe) that was almost always populated by handicapped & elderly players...and there were two open seats next to each other.
    So - we grabbed 'em & began to play... I've got an elderly woman (about 80 or 85) to my right... her play is as slow as molasses in the winter...and, at one point, she hits her 12, draws a 2, and then a 5... then the wait... dealer asks, "Ma'am - if you're good, you need to wave your hand over your cards." Still - nothing... finally, I lean over and whisper to her - "You have 19 - you're good" - to which she LOUDLY replies in anger, "I can COUNT!"

    We were staying at The Four Queens in 2009 I think, and I have a fucked up gut (Crohns actually, but back then I was yet to be diagnosed) I have an obsession with chili dogs..If they're on the menu, I don't care what the repercussions are, I'm gonna indulge. So were at The Chicago Brewing Company and they have one on the menu. Well, not a "Chili Dog" per se, but I begged the bartender to have them break Chi Town tradition and fuck it up with chili, onions, mustard and cheese..Now this whole time my wife - who has blasted through a shit ton of money, is super pissy, and we've only been there for 6 hours is hymming and hawwing about "I'm not staying here all damn day because you're stomach is fucked up because you ate that shit..." "You know what these things do to you Gino..." "I'm not holding your wipeys either..." on and on and on...So, naturally I devoured it like a starving Ethiopian, all the while smiling at her and guzzling their Hefeweizen. She's about ready to clobber me, when all the sudden the ol "You're about to have the green apple splatters" notification in my panza starts to send it's first alarm. Having scoped out the bathrooms prior, I knew the route, and the toilet that will be utilized/destroyed for such emergencies. "Be back in a sec" I tell her as I hurriedly leave the bar..Right about then a gloating, snarky laughter erupted from her like I'd never heard before. Keep in mind this was only our 2nd trip to LV together, the first being our honeymoon only 2 years prior. As predicted by my smarter better half - my stomach was royally fucked up because I ate that shit...On my way back from absolutely incinerating the casino bathroom, and popping an Immodium, I stopped at a penny slot, popped in a $20, max bet - hit a multi level bonus that just kept repeating and wound up winning $1970.00 So I take this TITO over to my smug wife, and show it to her. She's instantaneously in a better mood, and is high fiving me and showering me with kisses. So nowadays when were there and she's having a bad day at the tables or on the slots, she asks me to go get a chili dog..

    I was playing BJ and a young very athletic man, but very drunk, came to the table. he struggles on to the tall chair. The dealer calls over the pit boss as he does not want to deal to him. The pit boss talks to the man and signals the dealer to deal him in.

    The young man gets his wallet out and fumbles getting his money out and drops wallet on the floor. He reaches down for his wallet and falls of the chair on to floor. Some staff rush over to help him up. This is funny part. One of the staff brought a wheelchair and they load him in it as he is screaming, No, No not that.

    They wheeled him away with a look of horror on his face.

    A couple of years ago at one of the Indiana riverboats, I was playing Crazy 4 poker, position 5. A guy who appeared a bit tipsy approached the guy at third base and accused him of playing with his chips. I thought there was going to a fight until the pit boss came over and told the drunk his chips were at third base at the next table, which was 3CP. The drunk goes "What? You moved the table one me", then went to his seat. I had to stifle a laugh. After the drunk sat down, the pit boss had a talk with him. I suspect the drunk went to the restroom and came back to the wrong table. I found out later the tables are bolted to to floor, so it is a major undertaking to move them, like they ever would while they are in use.

    I was playing Let It Ride at Excalibur on my first trip to Vegas. It was way after midnight and there were three of us playing at the table. The dealer seems like a nice guy. He's talking to us off and on. All of a sudden he slows his dealing and actually stops before we all have or cards. He starts dealing again very slowly. The a couple hands later he completely stops and we thought he was joking around with us. It turns out he fell asleep while dealing. We're looking at each other thinking he was kidding us. It turns out he actually fell asleep standing there while he was supposed to deal. We were laughing and he had no clue. He woke up in about a full minute and was embarrassed as hell. The other two guys and I were just shaking our heads. We all picked up and left a few minutes later.

    I think it was my downtown trip in the fall of 2013. I made the trek to the less than stellar men's room at LVC. I moved up to the first urinal that was free and as I'm unzipping my fly I see a set of dentures in the urinal. I had to wait for another urinal, I just couldn't get myself to pee on some unfortunate guys dentures.

    I also saw a sobriety chip in a urinal once. I guess the guy gave up with all the temptations. Hopefully, he started back on the right track after his blow out weekend.

    :peace: :beer:

    After a long night of drinking and gambling I went to the john to get some privacy just to count my scratch and finish my drink.
    I get done counting and finishing my drink, set it down on the rail and decide I'll take off my gold wrist chain.
    As I finish taking it off...pluke...it falls in the toilet. Not a big deal I say to myself, I'll just reach in get it and wash it off.
    When I stepped back.....Whoosh.....there it went, down the drain with the auto eye flusher.
