Who Does That?
I bet you guys are glad to finally see a new entry. Sheesh! I've been such a busy little bee, I've h=barely h ad time to write anything.
Where do I begin? Well, yesterday for instance...
I was heading over to my sponsor's house, when I noticed my car making a strange yet very obnoxious noise. It was a grinding sound that got louder when I put on the brakes. So, luckily. my sponsor's boyfriend knows his way around a car. He went up to Pep Boys and got me some brake pads and installed them for me. Impressive. Score one for him. He saved my butt. I don't know if could have driven another mile on those brakes. My whole body got chills when I heard that LOUD ass GRINDING NOISE.
I was on a little winning streak for a while. I did the touristy thing for a couple of days and found myself hanging out on the strip with a "friend". We wanted to play some Cleo Keno and somehow we ended up at the Sahara. I waited in line to get a player's card, but it took way too long so I skipped it. So, we are sitting there playing and the machines are in a row of three. I'm on the end, my friend is in the middle and there's an older lady on the other end. I hear her flag down an employee and ask them to watch her machine while she goes to the bathroom. Now, most people just ask the person next to them. It's not a big deal, it's not hard work, and I've never heard anyone say no. So, it struck me as kind of odd that this lady didn't ask us to watch her machine. I figured s he wasn't a local and didn't know the proper etiquette. I also assumed she had A LOT of money on there. So, I said something to my friend about how it was odd and he says "yeah, she's making this poor woman stand here and watch her machine and it has 40 cents on it!!" Oh my god. I about fell off my chair. She literally took a woman away from her job, went to the bathroom, took her good sweet old time, all for a measly 40 cents. Can you imagine>???? I've never seen anything like it. Who does that????
Then, she gets back from the bathroom and blows through the rest of her money. She starts talking to us and without a shameless bone in her body, asks me for some money. To top it off, she's a local. She lives down the street, she has grandkids and she obviously didn't know who she was dealing with. She was nice as could be when I gave her some loose change. But, when the well dried up, so did her friendly banter. She became downright rude.
I tell ya! This place never ceases to amaze me.
I went back there the next night though because the machines at the Sahara were hitting! I hit 6 out of 6 twice the first night and then again the 2nd night. My "friend" hit 7 out of 7 on the bonus round where all payouts are doubled and then the girl next to me hit 5 out of 5 within the first two minutes of sitting down. So, although it's a little inconvient going to the strip, it's well worth it if we are winnning.
