Ridiculous & Random Stories & Thoughts on My Experiences

A Little Lesson July 15, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Grey Goose, Dirty @ 4:34 pm

If you’re in a casino in Vegas and actually paying for drinks, you’re a moron!

Why oh why would someone sidle up to the poker bar and pay $13 for a drink instead of just sinking $10 into the machine and possibly coming out ahead?  I just don’t get it.

To illustrate my point, while poor Click sits in her boring ass seminar, I’ve been gambling off the same $20, have enjoyed 4 cocktails and still have $16 left after an two hours.  Yup, I tip the bartenders for each adult beverage, but still, it’s just bad business to pay for drinks in a casino…..

.
Oh, and just for the record for those of you that find it ironic that I was seeing someone in AA, I happily abstained when I was with him (aside from my one breakfast of Mike’s when I freaked out about his coming to my house) and would have given up my beloved cocktails completely had he asked. 😦

    I dated someone who was in AA (9 years recovering). I never drank around her and had almost completely given up on drinking completely while we were dating. However, as the relationship went on, fighting built up as each day passed…until it got to the point I just needed to have a drink (or two) from time to time when out with friends while she was working or something.

    And I completely agree (on a more pleasant topic). The second time I was in Vegas, most of my friends went to see shows; while myself and another friend hung out at the Bellagio. I sat a a $.01 slot for over 2 hours. Had about 7 to 8 cocktails, had put in only $5 and cashed out at over $50.

    • You would probably be able to give me some insight into the whole ‘dating someone in recovery’ ….. especially someone only 8 months in 😦 …….. eh, moot point now anyway……

      Good job! You turned a profit, copped a nice slew of cocktails and was probably entertained by the always fascinating people watching that is an given Vegas casino! 🙂

      As we had a bar credit as part of our room package, I did get a bloody mary by the pool on saturday (breakfast, ya’ know) and it was $14! Okay, although it was a really good one, I would expect it to have come in a litre sized cup!
