Working in a casino seems to have a profound effect on moral fiber. You can view some of their dark conversations on the casinos dealers forum.



I read those for years. It's a depressing place,
dealers are always unhappy about something.
They universally dump on their customers,
have no respect for them at all, even when
they tip. A casino player is no better than a
mark in a carnival. He's only there so they can
squeeze money out of him.

And we have no remorse for them when we exploit their sloppiness and take advantage of their mistakes. And if they get fired over it, tough!

I don't think that there is anyone in the customer service industry that enjoys the presence of all of their customers, with some jobs being an exception, perhaps. You tend to remember the bad ones, especially when they vastly outnumber the great ones (which I assume they do in the casino industry, but wouldn't personally know) with most customers being neutral.

You should want for merciful management that wants to give them as many chances as possible, that way they can go on to commit more mistakes that work to your benefit.

I hate to see sloppy dealers fired. It's work to find them. Why would I want them gone and have to go hunting again?

The opposite usually happens. The player gets the boot and the game continues. We just send other players in on it.

You weren't a dealer were you? What made you all curmudgeonly? (-;

I dont know if dealing has more of a dark affect on people than the average job.
Perhaps because people spend so much time with dealers they tend to notice more than one might notice when dealing with employees from other fields.

I dont know think it's the job that turns people dark, I think the people are dark negative people to begin with.

I know a couple who both dealt BJ and other games in Vegas for many years. The Guy is a goodhearted, nice positive person and he always has been. He mostly enjoyed dealing. The lady is the opposite of him.

Most dealers I know personally seem to be happy, positive, up beat and good people.

To your face, yeah. They work for tips.
You might find what they say and
think and express to other dealers
to be quite a shock.

I used to have a fireman tend bar for me on some of his days off. Bunch of his coworkers would drop in most shifts. If you ever heard the smack they talked about people they helped, the mess in peoples houses, why do the 500 pound sacks of shite always live on the sixth floor of a walkup and so on, you'd be amazed.

Actually, I do feel that there are some dealers that like to see people lose... again it originates from their own insecurities, issues, and ineptitudes. Some....just a few that Ive encountered over the years, appear to be miserable with their lives and I felt that they didn't like to see me win. I guess when they see someone come in all the time and hit for a few bucks consistently, they feel envious and start feeling worse about themselves. I tried to stay away from them when I saw them. But for the most part, I love the good dealers who know how to deal and have good attitudes. If I win, they win. I tip a percentage of my winnings typically.

That being said, there was one guy in AC who was a floor person in craps... He never smiled and always made comments like 'the law of averages will catch up with you soon'. WTF! I swear he would stand right at the corner of the table every time I walked up and starred at the dice as if he were hoping for a 7 out. His tables seemed to always be cold. Bastaaaard!
