Apos: BAN BLACKJACK !!!!
Gig103: Apos: BAN BLACKJACK !!!!I agree, he sucks
Coelacanth: I used to work at the Bellagio as an utility porter in the EVS department. As a matter of fact, I was one of the Day One employees who opened the place (opening night, we couldn't shoot off the fireworks because of the high winds that night, and when they tried to impress the VIPs with the fountain show, the VIPs got soaked to the skin, including Stephen King and his wife).Bellagio dealers were always a squirrely bunch. Superstitious and overprivileged. I remember I was working on a stubborn pressure washer that refused to turn over when I got a call from one of the pits that there was a "gum emergency" that had to be resolved right away. Not knowing what it was, I loaded up a handcart with chemicals and a steamer and ran upstairs. When I got to the pit, the pit boss showed me the 'emergency': one of the dealers had a wad of gum stuck to the bottom of his shoe.A zillion dealers and not one of them wanted to touch the wad of gum.I grabbed a piece of Kleenex and pulled the gum off the dealer's shoe. And then I was dismissed like the village oaf.
friedo: See, this is why I love Vegas. I'm at the Bellagio now and happened to be playing blackjack when this happened last night.It was quite a ruckus, causing both participants in the brawl to tumble over a table into the pit where they were pulled apart by angry pit bosses and other dealers. We assumed a player had gone nuts and jumped the dealer. Didn't know until I read that that it was a fight between two dealers. The one who got the worst of it was quite bloody about the face./hit me
