So everybody in your casino, your fellow workers,
all refer to you as 'the narc', is that what you're
saying?



I wish. It's nothing so petty.

The GI's I replaced carried weapons. No guns, per tribal legislation, but... weapons. One got sued for $32,000,000 on a slander rap. Employees who've been caught up threaten violence. Others just peer with suspicious glares and get quiet.

My life has already been threatened once that I know of, and I've only been here 4 months. Another day in the life =p

Is your next career move as Security at Walmart ?



The only other casino gig I can imagine is going back to Surv, albeit at a much higher level. But to be honest, this whole desk jockey life is really starting to grate on me. Pursuing my bio degree and getting into the DEC or taking up a trade look better and better every day.

I miss doing a job that fills something other than the bank account =/

wow, Buzzard was really ripping into you

as far as the world of gambling and death threats, I once had someone threaten to kill me if I didn't quit sitting at his favorite chair. This was at a racetrack in Ohio.

I never got into horse racing. One reason was definitely the crazies. But I think there is plenty of crazy to go around casinos too.

Yeah, and it amounts to the same. Fight, hate, stab, kill... in the end, we're all just animals trying to make a buck.

In the bar biz you're constantly getting life threats.
You kick a guy out and he says he coming back
to blow you away. You learn that its the ones
who never threaten are the ones you have to
watch out for.

Not true. I have great compassion for those afflicted with the " Barney Fife Syndrome "

I agree but there are exceptions. Neighborhood bar in Baltimore about 10 years ago. A guy was wearing a Rangers jackets ( local Social club) and this drunk left the bar and came back with a shotgun and shot a guy at the bar who was wearing a Ranger jacket.
Same bar, same jacket, different guy. What a way to die !

And always watch out for the guy who laughs instead of getting mad, He'll be laughing after he stabs you too !

We always kept a 45 automatic under the bar. It
was illegal, the cops knew it was there and never
said a word about it. Just the sight of that hand cannon
pointing at you is enough to make most people crap
their pants.

Had the misfortune to have one pointed at me once. The barrel opening looking like a cannon at the time.
Did not help that the guy pointing it was more than a little high.
