One of my pet peeves is the use of the word gaming. Casinos market themselves as an entertainment and gaming business. No it is not! It is gambling. Casino first business is gambling, second business is gambling and lastly it is a gambling business. It does all other things to get people to gamble.

What idiot would say, I am gaming. Let's go to the casino to gaming.

Why can't casino admit that it is marketing gambling not gaming? Is it because gambling has negative connotation associated with it just as alcohol does with drunks. There are no more drunks but drinkers. Hard alcohol should market themselves as drinking business not alcohol business.

Get real. Does anyone else have similar pet peeve?

Lottery promotions in which you are to enter your non-winning tickets. How about calling them LOSING tickets?? That's what they are.

I think it's semantics - the casinos offer gaming options at which patrons may gamble.

My pet peeve (at this moment) is slot machines that "congratulate" you on your "win" in awful bonus rounds. I just played through some free play. I was "lucky" and hit the bonus twice during the suck-out. I won $0 and $1.20 in the bonuses (on a $2/spin machine). Personally, I wouldn't consider either of those to be a "win," let alone one that was worthy of congratulations.

Definition for gaming:

gambling: the act of playing for stakes in the hope of winning (including the payment of a price for a chance to win a prize).

Casinos never use the word gambling, its too negative,
it implies you might lose. They say gaming, and describe
what you do as 'action'. Their going to rate your action,
never your gambling.

Casinos go to great lengths to hide what they really are,
greedy places that want to bleed you dry. So they put the
best possible spin on everything.

Casinos are not "gambling." Every bet, with the exception of craps free-odds, has a built in commission, house edge, or both. They offer "games." Patrons take a gamble on a losing bet because it sometimes wins.

I dunno. On a bet to bet basis you can win or
lose fairly equally. But if you keep going back
and back and back, thats where they have you.

I find a lot of humor in your posts Bob, because many times they are genuinely funny.
I don't find humor in the posts I mentioned because they are not at all funny.
I am supposed to roll with laughter at some stereotype about Asians/Chinese from the 70's...?
I could name 20 Chinese guys who bet more than most people's net worth on one hand of baccarat.
They don't wash other peoples shirts, trust.
As far as the disabled go, you want to get some laughs about disabled people?

Yup, the Chinese are definately big bettors. Big
winners? Not so much. The Chinese I saw when
I played bac were great at following the lead of
the Big Bettor. Unfortunately, more often than not,
he was usually the Big Loser.

I have a variety of pet peeves.

The four that come to mind are:

A) Horrific spelling.
The occasional spelling error / typo doesn't bother me. But can't you re-read your post, and fix erorrs, before hitting "Post," or edit posts if you see the errors afterwards?

B) Incorrectly used words.
For example: Your, you're. There, thier, they're. Etc.
When I see these words used incorrectly in posts, I really do have to stop and re-read it to understand what was written.

C) Putting the $ after then number.
While I realize that there are countries where it's normal practice to do it that way, I find it irritating when I see it being done by Americans. For example, on a restaurant menu, if you're going to use the dollar sign at all, put it BEFORE the number. There's a local dollar store named "1$ Bargains." Really? You couldn't get it right in the name of your store?

D) Using "Of" when you mean "Have".
For example: I should of stopped at three peeves.


I have other peeves, but these are the ones that come to mind.


Gaming vs gambling? I couldn't care less.

There's another peeve: People who say "I could care less" when they mean "I couldn't care less."

Here's my pet peeve at the craps table.

The shooter gets the dice and establishes a point.

The stickman pushes the dice to the shooter and the shooter takes the dice and drops them three or four times in front of him until he sees some magical number and then finally tosses the dice down the table and

7777777s OUT!

Pet Peeves, awesome topic:

1) Walking behind a group of people walking down the strip at 0.00005 mph, spread 4 wide making it nearly impossible to pass.
2) Walking behind someone who suddenly decides to stop cold in their tracks in the middle of the aisle without any regard to the 10 people behind them who now have to quickly react to or run into the inconsiderate asshole. Is it too hard to just walk to the side before coming to a complete stop?
3) People who go through the all you can eat buffet while taking forever to make their selections. It's an ALL YOU CAN EAT, slop and go, if you don't like something, you can always come back and get something else.
4) The person 'saving' a seat at the sports book, only to find out they were saving it all day for their spouse or buddy who showed up for all of 5 minutes during a break from shopping or from the pool.

  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.

  • This is the only one I disagree with. I have frequently

    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.

  • Drivers who obstruct cars behind them in a parking garage waiting for a parking space.


  • 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".
