Aren't there non-AP's who wear earbuds? It seems like all the cool kids are wearing them nowadays.

There's not very many slot and VP players who wear them since they are already being entertained by the sounds and visuals of the machines. It indicates your not there for entertainment, an lack of interest in gambling like its your job.

How about a set of these?

And yet that's not a joke(perhaps not the color)
There that one AP who was playing a west side casino always wearing headphones like that. I avoided sitting near him.

Same as the overly young ladies who prowl the hotel room corridors. They are not there for gambling either but I see no reason to scorn them.

Yet, he has been operating in there for years.

A lot of autistic people wear those because they have a problem with loud and/or repetitive noises, much like you would find in a casino.

That would explain the AP sightings.

I'm talking about AP's who wear headphones while playing. I guess it's possible one guy in particular is autistic, I wouldn't know I have never talked to him. However, there are others AP's who wear headphones who are not autistic. AP's should NOT wear headphones while playing(I'm not talking about poker players).

Another pet peeve that I have is when a person is talking they use abbreviation. Example. I am playing a 5 cent denom machine.

I can see using a shorthand/ abbreviation when writing but why can't you just say denomination. We ca star abbrev evthing jus 2 make evy1 feel includ. Okay, I meant Ok, sry, I ment O.

It drives me crazy when people use the word "think," like in the following examples:

"I'm going to an Ivy League school (think Harvard, Yale)."

"We might get some Chinese food for dinner (think fried rice, won tons)."

I hate it. Just ****ing say what you mean. Stop trying to obfuscate it for no reason.
