What pushes your buttons?

This thread was just started in the Atlantic City Forum and I thought it was so great I would start it over here.

What pushes your buttons when you're gambling/drinking/dining/ etc in Vegas.

Here are some of our AC "buttons" People who play more than one machine at a time

"Slot Voodoo" The crazy things people do to machines before they hit the "spin" button - does rubbing the machine, talking to it, tapping it or praying to the slot machine God work?

Being on a hot machine & the person who sits down next to you hasn't bathed in a week.........how do you handle that? I usually take out my little bottle of Eternity & spray away EVERYWHERE around me...

Please post your "buttons"!

Thanks!

Acquarius59, I think most people have closed up shop for the night because of the pains in the a$$ who have taken over the forum.

I love watching "slot voodoo." Or seeing people in their super loud "lucky casino clothes." Cracks me up every time.

I think my most pushed button is how lots of people take wins by others as a personal insult. I have seen this lots on the slot floor - if I win a jackpot, half the people around will congratulate me, and the other half look at me as if I took THEIR money, not the casino's. (alright, I don't win any jackpots, but I said IF....)

The other place I see this is with drawings held in the casino. The grand prize is always drawn last, and the giant crowd that gathers while names are called all seem to disappear grumbling, instead of applauding the winner.

Am I the only one who notices these things?

people that literally bump into you, in the casino, on the strip...and don't say "excuse me".

people (usually women) that play more than 1 slot machine at a time when the casino is very crowded

people who talk with food in their mouth (oops....sorry, that is not just a vegas thing)

people that discount me for crying over my $100 win
