Okay, so I had gotten comped at one casino, both hotel room and free buffet. So I went and ended up losing my entire paycheck at Roulette and Craps.

So, with time to kill (I still had the room for the night as I lost my money pretty quickly), I decided to take advantage of the free buffet.

So, since I had lost about $800 bucks, I tried to make it up in food. I started calculating the cost of each plate and downing it to get back my $800.

I gorged for about 4 hours - by my calculations I got back at least $150 in edibles.

Oh my Lord, I was sick for the next thirty six hours. When I got home, my relatives had to administer to me. Overeating hangover!

I'll never do that again(the gorging. Wish I could not do the losing money part but that I seem to repeat.)

That's pretty funny.

When I was a kid, whenever we went to Seattle my father took us to a buffet called the Royal Fork. He always encouraged us to eat as much as possible, to get his money's worth. That is not a healthy attitude to have if you live in Vegas.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Lost $800 and still have time to kill? Sucks.


Make it up at the buffet? You're paying the price now!


You should have stuck to rationalizing it by stealing the soap and shampoo from your room! OK.

To avoid over-eating too much at a buffet you can try Nareed's Buffet Mantra: "A buffet is about variety, not quantity."

Admittedly this doesn't work if you want to take out your loses at the buffet.

Nareed's Secondary Buffet Mantra, for use if the first one doesn't work, is: "Stop Eating! You're wasting valuable gambling time!"
