ACmama- The Black Cloud strikes again!!!!!!!!!!!!

You guessed it- the Black Cloud followed my hubby and I to The Bahamas...and he was told under no uncertain circumstances that he wasn't going to see the inside of another casino 'til January!!!

Oh Noooooooooooo!!!! I thought the Caribbean air would dissipate that Black Cloud! My BC and I made a deal that from now on, he gets $100 and goes his separate way in the casino. He is not to play near me, stand near me or look over my shoulder. When his $100 is gone, he goes to the room, the boardwalk, the bar or wherever. This worked fine for 2 trips. On trip #3 he decided his BC streak was over and "can't we just play the quarter VP together for awhile?" OK, I gave in. Have never lost so much so fast - honest. Made him leave and then started to win some money back!

What's interesting is that my Dad brings me good luck, my Sister drains the luck out of everyone within a 10 mile radius (but I bring HER luck) and Hubby can't win $%it or shinola when we play together. Makes for an interesting time when all 4 of us are there together!

Thanks for that post - gave me a much needed chuckle here at work.

Glad I brought a smile to your day, ACMama! You're lucky that your Black Cloud will take the $100 and then find something else to do. As for luck from family members, my Dad brings me luck. Looking forward to hitting AC with him on a day trip in September. Black Cloud has already accepted that he is NOT INVITED along on this one! Granted, I don't always have such great luck, either, but I just can't figure out how this man manages to lose more than double the money in half the time! BTW, Atlantis got rid of the "crab"

machines!

amazing

I have my own black cloud. He does not seem to effect me on slots, but KILLS me at the blackjack table. Even if he is not playing and just standing there watching.

I have attempted in the past to make him go away as well. But it hurts his feelings and I cannot stand the sad look. So now I just don't play BJ with him. I don't go every trip with him (say 3-5 times a year) or go with my friends over a weekend, then he meets me there for the rest of the week. So I just play BJ when he's not around. LOL
