That's okay bud.. you hit on my pet peeve with a spelling errors in there.. so we are even!
Why playing the don't when shooting, curious?
because I suck at shooting for the most part
you should see the looks when I side bet a Don't for the dealers
I mean if a shooter bets against himself that should be ok. And people should join him!
My friend sucked at shooting also. So whenever he got the dice he would bet the don't. And he's the type that don't give a rat's ass when the others gave "the look". And he'll tell them too!
I've come to the conclusion, MOST Button slappers are Locals, and they don't give a rats a$$ if they bother anyone.
I can't stand the Lurkers...... the ones who stand behind you & watch you play.
When I notice them, I STOP playing.
Take a drink, adjust my chair, and get out my phone, check the weather, return emails, etc., until they go away.
Hey, If there's nothing to watch? No reason for them to stay. So.........Adios!
Numero Uno on my radar. My BFF resorted to pretending to pick a winner out of her nose. Still not a go for a Lurker. They are clueless.
Good idea! When I'm on a bonus I don't really mind others looking, but just playing it does kind of annoy me.
I usually will bet small (on the + side) when shooters play the don't. When I'm in vegas and not rolling well I just pass the dice to the next shooter. There are some people who aren't lucky and if I'm on a table for awhile I may play the don't when these guys start shooting. If they want to play the don't that is their prerogative. But when they "win" that means that they crap out and will pass the dice to the next shooters.
I was on a table once when the shooter kept playing the don't. Unfortunately he kept winning so he kept shooting. The guy never really got it, even after hitting his point a couple of times he kept playing the don't. He finally started to run out of money and he realized he should play the plus side and he kept rolling for another 15 rolls. This was at the fremont so the counter said that he rolled about 45 rolls by the time he crapped out. Me? I was playing the plus side so I won a good amount of money (more than tripled my initial buy in). After the first point I mentioned that the guy should start playing the positive side but he kept saying that he was a lousy shooter and kept playing the don't.
I don't mind if shooters play the don't, what annoys me are the players who come up right next to you on a good roll and will start to play the don't, as if they can influence the roll of the dice.
I can't stand it when announcers say Ex-a-vee-er instead of Za-vee-er about a dude whose name is Xavier.
Try having a last name which is mispronounced more frequently than it is pronounced correctly! Even when you pronounce it correctly when you dictate it to the operator, when they page, they always totally butcher it!
Person in the next room that watches LOUD TV after midnight.
Even worse is person in the next room that falls asleep watching LOUD TV after midnight.
Worst of all is person in the next room with LOUD TV on who LEAVES room for the night thinking this will somehow better protect it.
Sometimes people tell my wife she misspelled her name (wich, of course, is not true; she just has an unusual name) treating her like an idiot. That is annoying....at least for her.
Fully agree! Except when people in the next room are having LOUD sex, then my TV will go even LOUDER. Unfortunately this happened already a few times this trip. AWKWARD!!
It's worse when they're in the SAME room.
In the SAME room having LOUD tv or having LOUD sex???
Well, at least loud sex eventually stops.
I have never heard loud sex in a hotel room. It's on my bucket list.
