Okay, so I've been cranky and just sick of Vegas lately. I came back into town today and not once, not twice, but three times today I've had someone who was walking directly in front of me just suddenly come to a dead stop for no apparent reason, causing me to walk into them. Three times...on a freaking Monday. I'm not sure what grinds my gears more, that or the "look at me I'm walking in slow motion" move.

Did you at least walk in front of someone taking a picture for karmas sake? Lots of people with hangovers today.

That's funny, it happens to me all the time
in casinos. People have their heads shoved
completely up their butts in casinos, I don't
know why. I see it all the time. They wander
around in a dream world, mostly it's women.
Sometimes I plow right into them, I always
know where I'm going and have a very steady
gait to get there. lol

I hate when people are walking but looking elsewhere, or walking with their head down staring at their phone.

What the f*** is it with the people with the baby carriages hitting the back of your shoe/heel around Bellagio, Planet Ho, Paris, etc. Last time we were there it happened like 2 or 3 times within 30 min's. We have a 2 year old also and I go out of the way to stay away from people and hitting them with his carriage. I want to turn around and smack them, really.

Nothing worse than watching someone stop at the bottom of the escalator at The D, and just stand there.

I want to kill these people very badly.

In addition to the "mystery stoppers," how about the people with eyes in the back of their head. You're walking behind them, and as you approach them you realize they're walking too slow for you. You go to the left pass them, just as they stray to the left and block you. Now you go to the right but they anticipated that too and they block you again. They only do this in areas that aren't wide enough for you to go further left or right to get around them. Perpetrators are typically using their phone, gawking, wandering aimlessly, elderly, or all of the above.

I'd like to add to the list people who don't walk on the right side of a hallway. The only allowable exception should be to pass slow moving traffic. In other words, the rules should be the same as driving on a two-lane road.

In all fairness, it is probably expected to walk on the left in Australia and New Zealand, which I probably forgot to do lots of times on my last trip.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

The worst is entering or leaving a casino
rest room. There is always a blind corner
going in or out. I always hug the right wall
& assume the person coming the other way
is smart enough to do the same. Do they?
Hell no, almost never. Fricking morons.

Escalators moving the direction you want to go should always be on the right too. I learned that wasn't always the case the hard way.
