  • 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.
  • It's the deck that's supposed to be cut, dummy.
  • I love vegas and florida. they're like giant magnets for both monied and non-monied d-bags that keep them from driving up prices in the interesting places in the world even more, like all the neat INTERNATIONAL ports that carnival cruises takes me to.
  • I like how no one was shot.
  • okay but this is like old news now ...
  • You don't know when to quit, do ya Griswold?... Here's an idea: Why don't you give me half the money your were gonna to bet, then we'll go out back, I'll kick you in the nuts, and we'll call it a day!

    Yikes, he wouldn't deign to sully his hand just to touch his own shoe with a tissue, and that was thought normal?
    Damn, I'd be extra apprehensive if I was paged for a "restroom emergency", after that.
  • You didn't see this kind of thing when the mob was in control.
  • "The Stab" is a little known and used move in Blackjack. It also works as the tie breaker in Rock, Scissors, Paper.
  • did they have insurance?
  • 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
  • Could've been worse... could've played the split.
  • My dealer got knocked down by the melee and the first thing she did was to get up and throw her body over the dealer tray like she was ready to take a bullet for the chips.

    Then they shut the pit down for like 10 minutes while they waited for the cops to show up.
  • Dey sound like a coupla classy broads.

    Oh, my! That would have scared me half to death. I like my violence limited to literature, heavy metal and horror flicks. Only reason for physical violence, IMO, is self defense.

    My mom and I took a road trip together (it had been years!) back down to SoCal, place of my birth,  and hit Disneyland for a few days.  We saw a small brawl there, but it was between  two little kids, so it was no big. Man, can Minnie Mouse move when she needs to (out of the way, at least)!

    /run, Minnie, run!
  • It would have scared me as well but it was over before I even realized what happened. Also I was in the middle of resplitting eights.

    Another Festivus Miracle!!
