Y'all have complaints about WALKERS in Vegas... now perhaps you see why its best not to rent a car there. The tourists DRIVE that way too.



I was in a car with a buddy in vegas, and we rear ended some idiot tourist who stopped for no reason in a street. It ended up being a funny story though. My friend just backed up, and told me to roll down my window and throw my drink in the guy's face while we passed him (and I also yelled some obscenities at him), which in hindsight was a great move since he was probably too busy getting soda out of his face that he didn't get a chance to get our plate #.

Friend of mine was waiting to walk across a street when a driver stopped his car and waved at him to pass.

As he proceeded, he saw the driver and his passenger laughing as the driver gunned the car's engine for all it was worth.

My friend dived to avoid being hit, but he turned in time to get the plate number.

The next morning, that driver found his brand new Volvo burned to the ground.

That would make a good background arc for a TV show!

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.



If they almost never do what you exect, then you should expect something different next time!

On a related note to the "tourist stop", it drives me crazy when a group of people insist on strolling side by side (like 5 or 6 across) in a crowded setting (ex. Las Vegas strip, Disney, airport concourse) instead of maybe two across and the rest behind. They back up everybody behind them without any consideration that others may want to get past.

And they give you dirty looks when you shove past them as if you're the rude one.

Actually to come to think about it, the Mirage---right in front of the high limit baccarat room. They got that breezeway/walkway that goes to the end by the shops and elevators, etc. This is the stupidest set-up I ever seen. Tons of people will congregate right there. They just hang there between the high limit and the main floor and your coming out of the high limit "Excuse me, Excuse me" and they stand there-look and totally perplexed as what to do. Is this actually everyone's first time in Vegas. Seriously????

I can't help myself: do you know what's worse than annoying tourists? Tourists who no longer turn up.

Ok i will concede on the following points which drive me mad - tourist or local:
Standing side by side on an escalator so you're forced to ask your way past or just wait. Who has the time or bored inclination to just remain static?
Suddenly stop walking; especially straight after an escalator or in busy pedestrian traffic.

Ok and how did u forget mobile phone walkers? I reckon we will have a chronic neck injury epidemic in 15 years where people physically won't be able to look up.

And you know what, I have been gambling there since before tourism was all hip and chic with rides, kiddie pools and things for the family. Perfectly fine to go back to a 100% gambling town!!!!! Nudity, adult stuff, gamble-gamble-gamble, real night clubs. Throw out all the rap, the hip bars and the family tourism. Bring that crap to Disney land. Vegas was just fine prior to Steve Wynn who changed it for the worse.
