I guess I'm glad it wasn't battery acid

    You guys will never believe what just happened to me while waiting to cross from Harrah's to Mirage, I'm livid.

    Ok so there's a whole bunch of people standing waiting for the light to change so we can cross. I'm literally just standing there and a car of little S.O.B.'s driving by yell something and then throw something with pinkish liquid in it. (Balloon? Cup?) IDK what, but long story short, it friggin nailed me in the left abdomen and I'm soaked and welted! ( I'd post a pick but don't think you all want to see my flab) Not to mention infuriated... the woman next to me got nailed too...

    I swear to God, I can't make this crap up!

    Rant over. Now to go see love with my wet shirt, pants and little handmade purse my daughter brought me back from Argentina, which is now destroyed.

    Thinking of contacting metro pd, as I was at the cross walk, there should be camera's, no?

    That is awful, Happygirl21! I'm so sorry! I hope that you get to enjoy the show anyway.

    PS - I'm a fellow Jersey girl, living in Seattle now.

    There should be a camera, but no idea how much detail it would capture... Have a feeling metro wouldn't do a thing.

    Yes tell PD!!! It is possible they can get plates off cameras, but if it happens again they will have multiple complaints.

    I wouldn't even hesitate to contact police. The sooner the better. Don't even debate this.

    Sorry to hear..but I think you should have contacted the police right then and there and ask the other lady to stay with you also,ask the others what kind of car it was,etc.Could have been some punks just joy-riding the Strip and may have been spotted later on that night..I guess it would not hurt to call them today if you have a bruise or welt to show them and a descript of the car and exact time it happened?
    Sucks but don't let it ruin your trip.

    That's awful! Reminds me of hearing about when someone went zip lining there and peed or something...Either way disgusting. People are disgusting.

    Sorry that happened. Of course show tickets aren't cheap so you had to go...
    What did you do afterwards? Surely this was captured on Camera. It's Vegas!

    As much as I don't condone this behavior and would love to see the offending party pay a fine or something, I can't imagine that I would sit around waiting for local PD to arrive, spend time filing a police report, and then expecting them to check surveillance and catch the offenders. I think I would just hope that karma exists, move on with my life, and not let it spoil the rest of my vacation. I wouldn't want to give up another hour+ of my Vegas time for a likely lost cause. You have every right to be angry, and hopefully those guys have what's coming to them, but I think you did the right thing by just moving on.

    If they had thrown bodily fluids at you (which I believe is a felony) or performed some sort of sexual battery against you, I think that would be different.

    Wow, its like someone replicated the scene from "Dodgeball" where Steve the Pirate gets hit. I'd always remark that I'd never seen that happen before IRL. Disturbing...

    I spoke to security at Mirage and well basically was told, in not
    so many words, don't bother contacting pd.

    To tell ya the truth, I couldn't even guess what make, model, or even color the car was. It just happened so fast.

    Thankfully, although annoying, there is no long term effect, LOVE was amazing, and I made it back downtown wth out an issue.

    Have a great day
    Exactly, on all in points. As a nurse my first thoughts were 1.Chemical agent. 2. Bodily fluid. It didn't appear to be either, thankfully.

    But I can't deny, i was shocked and angry but. One other thing that struck me funny, not one person even asked if I was ok. I guess I'm just funny like that.

    On a better note, this happend while doing the QFR only slightly before ( I don't play slots as a rule so I was thrilled with my 20. "investment")

    Not to get off topic, but this has been bugging me. No one holds doors, no one's curtious anymore. Either everyone is drunk (or, high now, which we smelled at MGM a few times) or it's me also. Hell - even at Vdara pool, people were playing their own music - rap music. I get it - generic pool music isn't really thrilling, but not everyone likes rap music?

    Happy it wasn't chemical or otherwise. Chalk it up to people are changing, maybe for the worse :(

    I am a please, thank you, door holding, can I help you with that, kind of person. However, I feel like it's a dying breed. I'll tell you, I have had several BJ dealers tell me I am one of most polite players they have had, as I say thank you with just about every win ( and tip quite a bit, too). I can't deny I have been known to over indulge in adult beverages but I am still polite and friendly. (Maybe too friendly:drunk:)

    Would agree with this 100%. Best guess is drunks/joy riders/etc.

    I rountinely have CWs in casinos thank me for saying "please" when I order and "thank you" when I tip them for a cocktail. What do people do? Throw the money at them and scowl?

    Some probably don't tip at all but I just find it sad that I've been thanked for being polite.

    Was it for sure thrown? Or could you have been shot with a paintball gun? You said you were welted, so it seems like it may have some force behind it. If a paintball gun was used, metro might be much more interested as they don't take anything involving a gun lightly (whether its a real weapon or not)
