I have so many casino pet peeves I
can't count them all.

The extremely loud intercom.

The fat lady walking in front of you
who stops at every aisle to peer
down it and you can't get around
her because her ass is 3' wide.

The person in front of you at the
ticket machine has 20 of them,
all for under $5.

Waiting to get on the robot roulette
and a guy is just sitting at one of the
stations not playing and you have
to get a staff member to move him.

Pit people who ask me what my name
is. I find that very rude.

Sitting at a slot in an empty aisle watching
a roulette board and some woman wants
to play that slot when all the ones on
the aisle are free. She thinks the slot
gods are blocking her from the winning
machine. Happens every time I do it.

People who chant and wave their hands
over the slot screen. I feel like I'm in an
asylum.

Dealers who take forever to do a chip fill.



We must frequent the same places.

When I think about it, everything in
a casino bugs me. The atmosphere,
the crowds, the noise. As soon as
I walk in I want to leave. It wasn't
always that way, I don't know when
it changed.

In the restrooms the puddle of pee
that's under every urinal.

The free drink stations never have
Diet Coke, only Pepsi, which tastes
like medicine to me.

The over cooked food at every
casino buffet I've ever been to.

People who check out at 6am
and always slam their door.

Drunks making noise in the hall
at 4 am.

When the dealer has to muck the
roulette chips.

When I have to explain for the
20th time that I don't need a player
card.

When the dealer takes a winning
chip off the table and we have to
wait 10 min while the eye verifies
it. Why the entire game has to halt
is a mystery.

Having one set of rules for Asian
bac players and another set for
everybody else. Don't even get
me started on that one.

Probably doesn't happen all that often in Vegas. But waiting for a lower minimum table when it's full. The higher minimum table is empty. And the players you are waiting for are betting above the minimum of the empty higher minimum table.

This applies only to WinStar at Oklahoma/Texas border. The CONSTANT paging of people to meet their parties at a designated spot. I swear no one has a cell phone there.

People who bet against streaks in roulette.
Always bet with the steak, that way you'll
only bet once. If it loses you're done betting,
If it wins you're done betting.

People who scream when they win at craps,
or any table game. Women who scream at
even the smallest wins in craps.

People who get a relatively large win
at a slot, and instead of hitting the button
and making the noise stop, they let it
run and run and run till it stops on its own.

Casinos that don't have enough handicap
parking spaces, which is all of them. They
don't seem to realize that 80% of the
customers are over 60 and have a handicap
plate on their car.

The fact that casinos have no place to sit
except at a table or a machine.

When a band starts playing in the evening.
It's why I go to casinos in the afternoon,
so I can save my hearing for another couple years.

When Casino personnel come up behind you
and put their hand on your shoulder or arm.
I practically jump out of my shoes and get
immediately furious that they startled me so badly.

Waiting in line at the buffet. It's never worth it.

Half the fricking parking lot is handicapped. At some point, it defeats it's own purpose.

90% of you are malingerers. If you got just the small amount of exercise it takes to walk from your car, instead of focusing so hard on goldbricking, it might prevent you from becoming disabled for real.
