  1. When a couple stands side by side on a moving walkway. Especially at the LV airport and the entrance to Bally's.
  2. When two or more people (100% of the time women) run side by side in the Vegas marathon, making it difficult for those behind to pass.
  3. Dealers who don't thank players for a tip. Tapping the chip does not count as a proper "thank you."
  4. Players who smoke at a table game unless (1) all other players are smokers, or (2) they arrived at the table before the non-smokers.
  5. Wine served by the glass to players (it is always terrible).
  6. Passengers who obstruct other passengers behind them when getting off the plane while struggling to get a heavy suitcase out of the bin.
  7. Drivers who obstruct cars behind them in a parking garage waiting for a parking space.
  8. When an NFL sportscaster says of an unusual coaching decision, "You're a genius if it works, and an idiot if it doesn't."
  9. People who are compulsively late.
  10. The song "Double Dutch Bus."
  11. Airlines that overbook.
  12. Resort fees.

  • This is the only one I disagree with. I have frequently
    ordered the house wine when gambling in Vegas and
    I'm familiar with the wines they pour. We should have
    a prop bet that you order the house wine at wherever
    you choose, and I'll have them serve that and a medium
    expensive wine to you, and I'll bet if I do it 3 times,
    you can't get 2 out of 3 correct.

  • This is often true but if you try a palate cleansing saltine cracker prior to that first glass of house wine, it often improves your impression of it.

  • I wonder if it was you who was behind our car my first time in Vegas about 2006? My dad drives into the garage at Flamingo, then asks someone "where do you park?" Cars are honking and I scream at him to move on and find a spot. He yells back at me about just wanting to find out where to park, I yell back that it is a parking garage, you find a spot and park. My mother gets all stressed from the screaming, and my brother, recovering from a head injury, kind of wants us all to chill out.

    As you can imagine, even as a kid, family journeys were something else. But I was 37 or so at this time!

  • Drivers who obstruct cars behind them in a parking garage waiting for a parking space.
  • Sometimes its a signage issue, lighting issue, etc. Speed would increase if it said: Parking available on Level Four.
    Those who block traffic while waiting for the spot expect the other vehicles will not pass by but will intentionally take the spot from them, simply because that is what they would do in that situation.

    Los Angeles PD calls that Impeding the Flow of Traffic and cites you for it.

    I applaud parking garages that let you zoom up to the higher levels. Bonus points where there is a sign saying something to the effect of "x spots available on this level," as is the case at the Wynn garage. Maybe I'll start a thread on Vegas parking garage reviews.

    Might not be a bad idea... after all, we've all seen these signs at a receptionist's desk: "Department of First Impressions". Well, at almost ANY casino, no matter what is yet to come, Fame, Fortune, Female Companionship, untold wealth, un-remitting poverty... it all starts at the parking lot. Even if you choose valet parking, your casino experience actually starts there, not when you hit the cool air, see the half-naked ladies and hear the "casino musak".
