Floor who noticed the blackjack + T + 8 + 4 (or whatever it was) didn't do anything, he was in such shock. He came over to me (I was dealing craps) and told me what happened and sorta jokingly asked what he should do.....like this scenario is so messed up, I can't really do anything can I, it's too great of a moment.
Ok a few more stories. Some of used to see how drunk we could get and deal without taking an EO. One New Yesrs Eve a friend was moving the cards around the board while the players were betting. He was messing with them pretty hard. The floor just EOed him after a player suggested he might need it. I was drinking grape whatever and vodka going from game to game putting my drink in the 9 seat. Never got questioned once about why I was drinking in between shuffles. I still know a dealer to this day who always carries a sprite bottle with him while dealing and setting it by his foot. The town isn't as fun as it used to be but neither am I.
How about all the lines of coke some dealers used to do to keep themselves going "back in the day?"
I stopped telling people because It just leads to problems. Last time it went down like this. Me, "Hey, be careful I can see your hand." Opponent, " WELL STOP LOOKING THEN!!"Quote: Zourah
If I'm playing poker and I can see my neighbors cards I always tell them. Yes, I guess technically they are supposed to protect their own hand but that feels like stealing to me. Typically, if this happens it is an older person who has a hard time seeing, I just couldn't live with myself if I took advantage of that.

Sure, I can do my best not to see their cards, but even then, you can't always avoid or control what your eyes see.
And now I have to not ever look at the guy's chips or actions he is making just to make sure I don't see his hand.
Why do I get penalized for him being an idiot?
This is totally different from what I'm talking about.Quote: GWAE
A few months ago I was sitting next to an older guy who couldnt see well. I was sitting to his left and saw his cards every single hand. 2 guys on the other end of the table were throwing a fit because in wasn't fair that I had that knowledge. I played very nice with the guy next to me because I felt bad. The floor was called a few times. He would tell the guy to protect his hand. After the fact I was talking to the floor about it and he didn't know what to do because the guy clearly had a disability and he didn't want to cause an issue with ada or whatever it is called.
It's kinda like telling someone a lie so you don't hurt their feelings which is righteous to some people, however telling someone a lie to exploit them is unrighteous. For me this is no difference. They are both lies which makes the person a liar.
