My MIL has been upsetting since the wedding, and now I feel like she is Jocasta but with her Daughter, my SO.
EDIT: Added an update to my confrontation with SO this morning to JustNoSO: https://www.reddit.com/JustNoSO/comments/a0cx7f/problems_with_mil_become_problems_with_so/ And to clarify a few things: My wife wanted MIL to watch our baby when first born and we had the casino what-if convo. We argued a lot and I put my foot down that MIL will not watch our baby(now babies) alone without supervision. To my knowledge my wife followed my decision, although many times during visits, I say I have to work so I don't have to hang out with them. I trust my wife to not leave them alone... Or at least I did trust her before last night. Also the "if you make me choose, I'll choose her" I believe was her saying, you wanted me to choose makes you the bad guy/makes the decision easier.. You know? Right? Idk... Also, when MIL isn't around or up to something, SO and I are great! Everyone says we're a great couple and we try really hard to give our kids a quality life. Neither of us really have any vices, except for both our mothers. The only difference is I'm first to say, my mom can be too much. So I really don't fear divorce or the need to contact a lawyer... Some counselling would be helpful though. MOST IMPORTANT: I want to say thank you! My wife says has been brushing off my feelings as crazy talk for years and now you've given me the assurance to say no, my feelings ARE valid and my MIL is trying to subvert our relationship. In the end I really think we'll end up stronger over this. . . . So I am a male and have been lurking here for a few months and just love it. Right now I am livid, and thinking about my entire marriage and decided to get it all out. Brief History: Pre-wedding, my now MIL seemed totally agreeable and fine. Even at the wedding, had no issues. My own mother had a little power trip but that's a different story. I will say right away though that my mom has faults and I am always quick to point them out to her. Anyway, after the wedding, we go to a hotel, MIL shows up within 5 minutes with a pizza. My wife ended up falling asleep around 1 am, and my MIL finally left. So no nothing happened that night. Grr Since then, she has constantly shown up uninvited and unannounced and expected to be housed for DAYS. Sometimes she would bring random men with her and lock herself in our spare bedroom. Another thing she enjoys is drive us to dinner, run to the bathroom and NEVER come back... Leave us stranded in Casino parking lots while she goes inside. Often she would leave water bottles full of spit (like tobacco chew) on the floor. I am a pretty religious person and have sworn off any harmful substances or things like gambling and that's the first thing she ever learned about me, so this was pretty annoying, it was a million times more annoying when baby was born. When baby was 2, over thanksgiving dinner, her man told us a story from a week prior that MIL got so drunk at the bar that they took a taxi home and taxi driver had to help carry MIL to the room. Then Taxi guy and MIL guy hung out for a while. MIL claims to not remember any of it (well yeah, you were black out drunk like college spring break... in your late 40s) I was sitting there with a smile on my face thinking (Ohhh, this is my son's Grandmother) Yes late 40s, she had SO in high school... and still acts like she is in high school. BTW that thanksgiving "visit" lasted until February and we almost got a divorce over it because SO refused to tell me what her and MIL planned for the visit like the fact that SO was helping MIL apply for jobs to stay with us! We ended up seeing our pastor over it and that's when job apps came up. At that meeting/session my wife admitted (for the first and only time) that her mom was a little much but was too scared to say anything to her. Pastor told her our marriage is more important than hurting the feelings of a GROWN ADULT. MILs gifts to the baby include a onesie from Hooters, plenty of crap from Hard Rock Cafe. And every time MIL visits us, she procures a giant fat ancient TV from craigslist so she can watch TV in our spare room.I always end up throwing said TV out. Her most recent gift to my wife is a shirt that says Property of Jacob... you know from Twilight, a popular movie from a DECADE ago. Even if it was recent, "Property of...." anybody is just so...... Trashy... In fact I would describe every gift as trashy... like the GIANT Corona bottle for spare change she gave to my now 4 year old. ... Also about once a month her guy will call my wife to say they had a fight and now MIL is talking about killing herself please call her... MIL doesn't answer all night, SO cries herself to sleep... ONCE A MONTH! So that stuff is annoying, but otherwise, it's just weird. During visits, MIL constantly asks SO to go into the bathroom while she is showering. Or will try to lay down with her a lot... and just all around touchy and feeling to an uncomfortable extent to me.... Whenever I say anything about anything, my wife says, "Well you've always hated my family!" Or "you don't get along with your family, so you don't know how an actual family functions"... and the stopper of all arguments, "If you ask me to choose between you two, I will choose my mom every time!" My wife is the type of mother to check baby's seatbelt multiple times before we can drive and throughout the drive. SO baby and me all hold hands whenever we walk anywhere. SAFETY SAFETY SAFETY, but when I say I don't think it's safe to leave baby with MIL she gets really defensive. Once I said, " I don't want him to end up locked in a car while she goes to a casino" to which SO replied, " Wait, I was left in the car ALL THE TIME growing up so she could go to the casino, and I turned out FINE!"... "yeah but I want better for my kids".. "Oh I knew it, you don't think my mom is good enough and you don't think I am either!" ... NOW: Well this year it's my fam for thanksgiving, hers for Xmas. Instead of going anywhere I invited my family over and my son's godfather, a lifelong friend of mine. My family canceled last minute so just the God Father. and it was probably the best holiday I've ever had! Until... Within one hour of godfather leaving, you guessed it, MIL showed up unexpectedly, and wants to stay a few days. I've always been a person against looking up messages on other peoples' phones. I say as soon as you're suspicious, there's already a problem. But my wife just fell asleep and her phone kept buzzing with texts from MIL. SO I'm curious, I open. Nothing interesting right now, but going back, SO let MIL know the second godfather started packing so she can come over. I keep scrolling up, she complained a lot of having to have a guest for Thanksgiving and wishing she could be with mommy... Also, mentioned she might just leave our dinner to go with her. (Apparently MIL had been in town all week and was with her sister, wife's aunt who also lives in our town). They planned for MIL to come over as soon as godfather leaves weeks ago. This whole time my wife was agreeing with me about how great the holiday was and not having to deal with family drama, SHE WAS TALKING CRAP TO HER MOM.... So I keep going up the text conversation, and there's even some texts about wife complaining about ME. All day I've been upset about how incredibly rude it is to show up uninvited and expect a place to stay.... But now I don't even know what to think. With her touchy feely -ness with my wife, the lies, and the complaining about me... I guess I feel closest to being cheated on.. Is that crazy? I honestly don't know how to process this, I feel back stabbed but also, a lot of things make sense now... or idk... I really don't know...

As this re-watch continues there is a possibility that we will pick up some first-time viewers. Let’s be respectful to them and their watch through. Thanks!! The Office Season: 2 Episode: 22 – Casino Night The Dunder Mifflin crew holds a casino party at the warehouse and Michael has two dates. Release Date: 11 May 2006 Run Time: 29 Min Director: Greg Daniels Writers: Steve Carell Trivia: · In this episode, Michael says he's donating his money to Comic Relief, even though it no longer exists. This was an homage to the original British series, where an entire episode (#2.5) was devoted to raising money for Comic Relief. · In "Casino Night" Creed is shown stealing from a vending machine. He holds up a candy bar. This a bar made by Gertrude Hawk Chocolates, a company founded in Scranton. · Creed mentions the excellent pea soup at the soup kitchen. He would be referring to the St. Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen at 500 Penn Ave. in Scranton (right across the street from the Penn Paper building shown in the opening credits of the show). The soup kitchen is for the homeless. · In his beginning monologue to the camera, Michael states that he considers himself to be an accomplished "philanderer." This word is often applied to men who engage in sexual relationships with multiple women simultaneously. The word he should have used is "philanthropist," which is more aligned with people who support charities. · Michael's line, "Jan Levinson, I presume", is a reference to Journalist Henry Morton Stanley's reported first words to adventurer Dr. David Livingstone, "Dr. Livingstone, I Presume", when the former found the latter in Africa. · After Michael makes his speech to get casino night started, he says "let's get it started--- black eyed crows". He is referencing to the song by the Black Eyed PEAS "Let's Get It Started" but has the group name wrong. This was a deliberate but subtle joke. · In this scene where Michael and all the others are playing poker, Michael goes all in on the first hand and Toby calls his bet but Michael folds his cards berfore there is a flop. It is never shown what Michael's losing had was. · Spoilers · In "Casino Night" Dwight tells Pam & Jim his tux belonged to his grandfather & that he was buried in it. He again wears it in the beginning of the episode "The Farm", when announcing the death of his Aunt Shirley. However, according to Schrute tradition, they shoot their dead before burial to make sure they are "completely dead". If his grandfather had been buried in this tux, there should've been bullet holes. Goofs: · At the poker table, both Michael and Toby go all in. Toby has a pair of Jacks, while Michael's hand is practically indistinguishable, presumably two mismatched cards lower than a Jack. However, the game is Texas Hold 'Em, and the dealer gives the hand to Toby without dealing any cards into the center of the table. · During the poker game between Kevin and Phyllis, Phyllis was dealt a six of clubs on the river. Therefore, Kevin's set of queens should have been good. Quotes: · Jim Halpert: Hey, can I talk to you about something? Pam Beesley: About when you want to give me more of your money? Jim Halpert: No, I... Pam Beesley: Did you want to do that now? We can go inside. I'm feeling kind of good tonight. Jim Halpert: I was just... I'm in love with you. Pam Beesley: [No longer smiling] What? Jim Halpert: I'm really sorry if that's weird for you to hear, but I needed you to hear it. Probably not good timing, I know that. I just... Pam Beesley: [Stunned] What are you doing? What do you expect me to say to that? Jim Halpert: I just needed you to know. Once. Pam Beesley: Well, I... I... I can't. Jim Halpert: Yeah. Pam Beesley: You have no idea... Jim Halpert: Don't do that. Pam Beesley: ...what your friendship means to me. Jim Halpert: Come on. I don't want to do that. I wanna be more than that. Pam Beesley: I can't. [a small tear runs down Jim's face] Pam Beesley: I'm really sorry if you misinterpreted things. It's probably my fault. Jim Halpert: [Trying to recover] Not your fault. I'm sorry I misinterpreted our friendship. · Michael Scott: Oh, and another fun thing. We, at the end of the night, are going to give the check to an actual group of Boy Scouts. Right, Toby? We're gonna... Toby: Actually, I didn't think it was appropriate to invite children since it's... You know, there's gambling and alcohol, and it's in our dangerous warehouse and it's a school night... And, you know, Hooters is catering. You know, is that enough? Should I keep going? Michael Scott: Why are you the way that you are? Honestly, every time I try to do something fun or exciting, you make it not that way. I hate so much about the things that you choose to be. · Michael Scott: Hey, Carol, how goes the real estate biz? Is it real good? Pam Beesley: It's still me. · Michael Scott: I am no longer your boss. Lady Fortune is your boss. Stanley: Will Lady Fortune give me a raise? Michael Scott: Shut it, shut it, shut it. · Toby: I don't really play cards, but I'm not going to lie to you. It felt really good to take money from Michael. Gonna chase that feeling. · Michael Scott: There are certain topics that are off-limits to comedians: JFK, AIDS, the Holocaust. The Lincoln Assassination just recently became funny. I need to see this play like I need a hole in the head. And I hope to someday live in a world where a person could tell a hilarious AIDS joke. It's one of my dreams. · Pam Beesley: Sometimes I don't put Michael through until he's already said something. I look at it as a practice run for him. He usually does better on the second attempt. · Michael Scott: Jan Levinson, I presume? Pam Beesley: It's still me. · Jim Halpert: [to Pam] I'm in love with you. · Dwight Schrute: I'm Michael's wingman. I've got his back. Two dates. He's got two dates tonight. My job is keep Jan away from Carol and vice versa. Michael said, "We must deceive them, so as not to hurt them, and in that way, we honor them." · Michael Scott: Okay, you know what? I will not donate my winnings to Comic Relief, since apparently, it doesn't exist. I am going to donate to Afghanistanis with AIDS. Jim Halpert: Nope. I think you mean the aid to Afghanistan. Michael Scott: No, I mean Afghanistanis with AIDS. Phyllis: Afghani. Michael Scott: What? Phyllis: Afghani. Michael Scott: That's a dog. Pam Beesley: No, that's Afghan. Michael Scott: That's a shawl. Dwight Schrute: Wait, canine AIDS? Michael Scott: No. Humans with AIDS. Creed: Who has AIDS? Jim Halpert: Guys, the Afghanistananies. Michael Scott: Okay, you know what? No. No. AIDS is not funny. Believe me, I have tried. · Darryl: [explaining to Michael why he doesn't want fire-eaters in the warehouse for Casino Night] We just have a lot of stuff down there that could be stolen. Michael Scott: That's ironic. Darryl: What? Michael Scott: That *you* are afraid. Darryl: Why? 'Cause I'm from the hood? Michael Scott: Dinkin flicka. Darryl: [to film crew] I taught Mike some phrases to help him with his interracial conversations. You know, stuff like, "Fleece it out." "Going mach five." "Dinkin flicka." You know, things us Negroes say. Michael Scott: Give me some. [Mike and Darryl do choreographed handshake] Darryl: [laughing] Oh, yeah, I taught him a handshake, too. · Jim Halpert: Excuse me. How long is the wait for a table for two? Dwight Schrute: I would never, ever serve you. Not in a million, billion years. Pam Beesley: It's a nice tux. Dwight Schrute: I know. It belonged to my grandfather. He was buried in it, so family heirloom. · Creed: Oh, I steal things all the time. It's just something I do. I stopped caring a long time ago. · Dwight Schrute: [In response to Jim's claims of childhood telekinesis] I don't believe you. Continue. · Ryan Howard: One beer and one Seven and Seven with eight maraschino cherries, sugar on the rim, blended if you can. Jim Halpert: So, that's still going on, huh? You and Kelly? · Michael Scott: Why are you here? Dwight Schrute: When Darryl was coming, you said you wanted me here for protection. Michael Scott: Not. I said, not that. · Kevin: I suck. · Michael Scott: Two queens on Casino Night. I am going to drop a deuce on everybody. · Michael Scott: Love triangle. Drama. All worked out in the end, though. The hero got the girl. Who saw that coming? I did. · Michael Scott: Comedy's very much alive, as are homeless people. · Michael Scott: Jan and I understand each other. The romance thing is sort of on hold for the time being, but we've remained good friends. Good friends with privileges. Not now, someday. https://www.reddit.com/DunderMifflin/comments/930x55/previous_rewatch_threads/
Sonic Forces Continuity Errors/Oversights/Stupid Shit (Revised v2)
Pre-Story/Episode Shadow/Comics 1.Phantom Ruby appears one year before Classic Sonic despite both going through the same portal at the same time during Mania’s true ending. 2.Angel Island is in both Sonic’s world and the Human World. 3.Chaos is just kinda there? Also, if the real Chaos guards the master emerald when Knuckles is gone, what the hell was the deal with the Phantom Ruby making a fake? 4.HOLY SHIT ARE THOSE MORE ECHIDNAS AND A REFERENCE TO ADVENTURE? DON’T TELL PENDERS! 5.Wait, actually, I’d assume Eggman would actually be harming Chao when he takes over, so why doesn’t the Real Chaos ever show up? 6.Knuckles and Silver get to fight Chaos. 7.Silver warns Knuckles about a coming event that’s probably bad, and the first thing Knuckles does is literally leave the Master Emerald unguarded. 8.And just like that, Knuckles becomes the leader of the resistance with nobody objecting. 9.EGGMAN, TAKE THE EMERALD ANYWAYS YOU IDIOT! 10.Wait, so...I can understand GUN not being present on Sonic’s world, but so, does Team Dark have their own base of operations when they’re on Sonic’s World, and is Rouge like...Intel now? I guess it still fits with the whole ‘Spy’ theme, but she’s not really..doing much. 11.In Looming Shadow, Shadow and Omega are clearly in Arsenal Pyramid and not in the conversation with Omega. However, in Episode Shadow, he is in the City instead, but we get the same dialogue until a certain point, in which it changes and no longer matches the comic. After Stage 3, however, he is assumed to be in Arsenal Pyramid despite never going there in game. And I mean, sure, Infinite sends him to a Virtual Reality version of Green Hill, but that doesn’t really count, you know? He was in City beforehand. 12.Enemy territory is a city apparently full of civilians. 13.Oh hey, look! Eggmanlan--And it’s gone, never to be seen again. 14.Okay, I can get behind Infinite being a mercenary. But did he really think he could take Eggman on in his base? 15.Infinite’s interaction with the ruby shows...Metropolis? What the fuck? I would’ve expected Infinite’s Ruby Projection to be the destroyed city, but fucking Metropolis? 16.The City is destroyed before being destroyed. (Of course, this is because they didn’t have time to completely fix it up, but still continuity.) 17.So we can assume that Infinite wasn’t present when his Squad was killed by Shadow. Where the hell was he, and why wasn’t he, as the leader, helping defend both them and the lab? 18.Holy shit, Shadow killed a fuckton of people. 19.Wait, Eggman hired...people to defend his base? Man, even he’s lost faith in the Forces badniks. 20.Eggman talks to Infinite like he doesn’t know him personally, when the whole reason he even hired Infinite was to give him the Ruby and use him as the leader of his entire badnik army AND as his main weapon. 21.Shadow kills every mercenary except Infinite. How convenient! 22.I am not weak. 23.After Infinite fails, Eggman still keeps him around. 24.Shadow clearly remembers Infinite activating the Ruby, then he wakes up in Green Hill, with the Red Cubes everywhere, which he doesn’t acknowledge, and also doesn’t really question the fact that Rouge is telling him about a mission they were supposed to be on together, which he doesn’t remember whatsoever. 25.Shadow believes “Rouge” about Omega being destroyed three months ago and them not going out to pick him up a lot earlier. 26.Wait, Omega technically was destroyed in Green Hill, but like...Why are they suddenly in Green Hill now? I know they were trying to balance out the stages, but you could’ve at least had enemy territory be a revised Arsenal Pyramid. 27.Literally five seconds after Rouge tells Shadow not to worry since Sonic has it covered, she goes into full panic mode and dispatches Shadow to the area. 28.We never find out what happens to Shadow. 29.The comics were only made to fill plotholes. In-Story 1.Why are there so many broken Death Egg Robots everywhere in Lost Valley? Also, why and how does Eggman keep doing shit like flooding Green Hill with Sand despite the fact that Sonic and his 2 million friends are always on the lookout? 2.Where the fuck did Eggman get enough sand to cover the entirety of Green Hill? 3.Why would you cover Green Hill with Sand? Probably to piss Sonic off, but--Ohh, he was trying to bury it so Sega couldn’t use it again! He’s not so bad. 4.Chaos Emeralds aren’t even mentioned in the story. But the Master Emerald was mentioned in the comic. Hell, it was even seen! So...What gives? 5.GREEN HILL IS THE FIRST STAGE AGAIN. 6.Giant Non-Anthro Sandworm. Okay. 7.THESE BADNIKS SUCK SO BAD! 8.Tails just watches Sonic get his ass kicked. 9.Knuckles and Silver knew something bad was gonna happen a little while before this, (which could easily be chalked up to Eggman), and then didn’t warn Team Dark, or Sonic, or Tails, or anyone. 10.Eggman is clearly concerned over the planet’s state in Lost World, but he clearly doesn’t give a damn here. Also, why would he care? It’s not Earth. Actually, to be fair, GUN would probably arrest him on Earth. He would’ve escaped though, so I don’t know. 11.So...Rouge was keeping an eye on Sonic on the Death Egg for six months, just..watching as he got tortured. Okay. But how did she get to the death egg and back repeatedly? 12.Knuckles sends a kid out to fight in a war. 13.Probably 13 y/o Rookie randomly knows how to use a grappling hook, kick the shit out of badniks, and can do all sorts of acrobatic moves despite no prior experience in war, aside from apparently fleeing from Infinite. 14.CHEMICAL PLANT IS THE SECOND STAGE AGAIN. 15.What is a Spaceport doing in a Chemical Plant? 16.Espio sees Infinite at the Spaceport and then nothing comes of it again. 17.Omega is just...There. Broken, in the city. And that’s the only time we see him in the main game aside from the Eggman Empire Fortress cutscene and in the ending cutscene. Also, EGGMAN, LOCK OMEGA UP IN STASIS AGAIN, YOU IDIOT. 18.Did Tails just like...Run off? 19.Classic Sonic gets to ‘fight’ Chaos. 20.We haven’t seen Chaos in a Sonic Game since 2005, and this is the only major part he has in the game. And by major, I mean MINOR AS HELL. SO WHY BRING HIM BACK. 21.Tails remembers Classic Sonic and the events of Sonic Generations despite the fact that Generations shouldn’t have occurred if the Modern and Classic worlds are now separate. 22.Tails immediately idolizes the first Sonic he sees after spouting some cliche nonsense. 23.Tails. 24.Classic Sonic’s physics. 25.What happened to the Homing Attack? If Generations still happened despite that making no sense, then Classic Sonic should have the homing attack. Probably would’ve slightly made up for the shitty Physics Classic already has. 26.Classic Sonic runs through dirty post-war sewer water. 27.Knuckles entrusts the kid he just met to find Sonic. 28.The mission is to save Sonic but not anyone else Eggman has imprisoned on the Death Egg. 29.Rouge was on the Death Egg for a while. At least a week, right? So how would she ever have had contact with Shadow beforehand for him to ask her for intel later? Also, so he needed Intel from Rouge but Rouge went and got a mission from Knuckles which she immediately took. 30.Rouge somehow got on the Death Egg before anyone else undetected and stayed there for some time without being caught. I get shes a top grade Spy but jesus. 31.Well, of course Eggman got wind of your plan! You stole one of his fucking spaceships! 32.The rest of the resistance had no idea Sonic was alive until Rouge told Knuckles. But Rouge would’ve known Sonic had been there, right? 33.Okay if you all went on the Death Egg together in the same ship then how the fuck did the Avatar ‘take the best route’? And if Rouge knew where Sonic was being held, it's not like she gave them a map of the Death Egg, right? So how would Knuckles know what the ‘best route’ was, and if so, why didn’t they all take it? And NOBODY WENT WITH THE KID TO MAKE SURE HE WOULD BE SAFE? 34.Avatar plows through a motherload of badniks with no sweat, then after Egg Gate, is cornered by 3 of the things. 35.Zavok, despite being a virtual clone, has memories and talks, unlike all of the others. 36.Eggman sends the clone Zavok to banish Sonic into space, and doesn’t banish Sonic himself or go to watch his enemies’ final moments. 37.Sonic sees Zavok just vanish, and only responds to the noise. Then again, a lot of characters tend to “vanish” in the Sonic games, so.. 38.All of the prisoners kinda vanish, too. So either they escaped, or Sonic left them to die. 39.Eggman doesn’t immediately send all of the remaining badniks out to stop Sonic...He also doesn’t have any safeguards, or backup defenses. At all. 10/10. 40.Several Egg Chasers fly past Sonic after he exits the first section, and then don’t attack him. 41.Wait, wait, no, you escaped from a Meteor base heading FOR the Death Egg, so no, you couldn’t have been locked up on the Death Egg. Unless the Death Egg includes a...Meteor system? What? 42.Oh how convenient! Sonic and the Avatar find eachother in the Shuttle area where they have easy access to escape! 43.All sonic and the Avatar do is walk up the ship and it immediately opens, allowing them to step inside, and then it flies off. I thought these ships were to transport prisoners. 44.The rest of the Resistance comes in on a shuttle, and then Sonic and the Avatar leave on a different one. 45.The point of this mission was to rescue Sonic, right? So, was the plan ‘if someone finds sonic, find the nearest shuttle and leave the rest of us for dead’? 46.Knuckles talks to the Avatar on the comms like he’s off-site. But he came with the others to the Death Egg, right? And when everyone gets back to Resistance HQ it's like he was already there. 47.How is Rouge back on the planet? I guess she came back with the others but..Whatever. 48.Sonic’s first question is not immediately “Where is Tails?” 49.I get Sonic is with him, but Knuckles sends the Rookie who just joined them less than a day ago to do all of the resistance’s major tasks. 50.Okay, no. Eggman does not have ONE Ammunitions facility. There’s no way. We literally see a second one RIGHT NEXT to the first one! Also, WHAT THE HELL IS WITH ALL THE GEARS? 51.How does Double Boost even work? The Power of Friendship? Probably. 52.All Sonic and the Avatar did was destroy some badniks and run to a lift that goes DOWN at the end of the stage. And there’s an invisible wall that blocks them from going that far past the goal anyways, so what exactly did they do to destroy the Arsenal Pyramid and how did they get out? 53.Giant non-anthropomorphized snake in the Jungle...What? Why have Sonic’s world be a thing then if there are non-anthro animals there too? It can’t be to bring logic to all the floating platforms and loops and rings, because Adventure, Adventure 2, Rush (somehow), Battle, Shadow, 06, and Unleashed shows that Earth has these things too. 54.When Sonic runs past the Goal in Luminous Forest, he runs into the sealed entrance into the research lab but slams into Infinite instead in the following cutscene which takes place in the same area. 55.Infinite drops the Phantom Ruby and not him, Sonic, nor Silver notices. 56.He also dropped the Ruby outside Eggman’s lab. So...Either Infinite is terrible at his job (which he is), or Eggman is terrible at security. (Which he is) And maybe Eggman locked the facility down but he would’ve at least had some badnik forces check just in case, right? 57.Sonic just screws with Infinite while Silver struggles to get to his feet. Like, just look at Silver, he’s clearly in pain and injured. Then the next scene, he’s floating. 58.Infinite launches Sonic away, but then a boss fight with that Snake as a track starts? Also, what the fuck, we’re running on a dead snake. Also, SONIC KILLED A SNAKE. 59.WHY DID INFINITE LET SONIC LIVE?! 60.Infinite is clearly implied multiple times to be a machine, or at least somewhat similar to one, despite Shadow knowing he isn’t, and Shadow doesn’t correct anyone. Looks like the poor dude still has amnesia. 61.“Green Hill - Green Hill” 62.You can run up 90 degree slopes in most classic Sonic stages with enough speed, and run back down, and Sonic will fall through the floor. 63.Tails, at the beginning of the stage, clearly states that this part of Green Hill is undamaged, meaning he knew Eggman had fucked with it. Later, he acts all confused as to why Green Hill is in ruins, and is even unsure if it is Green Hill, despite being there nearly just as much as Sonic. 64.Why are Infinite and Eggman just standing around in Green Hill? 65.Infinite clearly sees Tails and Classic Sonic, but doesn’t say anything. 66.Sonic 1’s first boss again. 67.WHERE DID THE EGG DRAGOON COME FROM? WAS IT IN THE SAND PIT? WHY?! This is clearly meant to be the Egg Dragoon from Generations considering it’s damaged. But if that’s the case, the Egg Dragoon was destroyed thousands of feet below the surface of the EARTH. This is Sonic’s world. In Green Hill. And don’t give me that time displacement bullshit, these are separate dimensions now. 68.What the fuck is Eggman throwing at us? Rocks? Trash bags? They have snap buttons on them so..I have no idea what those are. 69.Aaannddd Classic Sonic just beat the Egg Dragoon. 70.Why is the city the only place really under attack? Or in actual ruins? 71.Okay, if the city had to be evacuated due to Eggman’s attacking, how is it under Team Sonic’s control? All Sonic does in Sunset Heights is find “Shadow”. 72.Casino Forest? Why? No, really, what was the point? You’re pretty much murdering everyone left alive, so why bother with a Casino? Not to mention you OWN the world, and you’re evil, so.. 73.I don’t know what the hell is up with the Physics in Casino Forest, but those mixed with Classic Sonic’s Physics are just..Unbearable. Just look at gameplay footage, Classic Sonic keeps turning sideways, upside down, backwards, ect. He also can drop dash around and under like, a few walls or slopesor ceilings. 74.Aqua Road is actually pretty bearable despite the gameplay looking really obnoxious to control from a non-player point of view. 75.Woah! Why did those wood planks blocking off the second path just explode?! 76.Well, Amy, I took your advice and decided to go with the flow. I fell off the slide and died. 77.“They sure made this lab hard to find.” “They must be doing experiments they don’t want people to know about!” Knuckles...Eggman conquered the world, I don't think he cares if anyone knows about the experiments he's doing. 78.Oh, look, the Avatar found the Phantom Ruby. The last remaining prototype, I might add. HOW CONVIENIENT. 79.“Have we met?”, Tails asks to an orange rabbit with heart glasses, a beard, a backwards baseball cap, a bikini, a gold chain necklace, AiAi’s feet, and AiAi’s hands. 80.“It’s been Generations since I’ve seen you!” and the entire Sonic fanbase was triggered. 81.Sunset Heights, the first stage we saw of Forces, is stage 15 out of 30. I have been playing this game for fifty minutes this far. 82.IF SHADOW HAD CONTACT WITH ROUGE FOR SIX MONTHS, AND KNEW THAT THE RETURNING ENEMIES WERE FAKES, FIRSTLY, WHAT THE HELL WAS HE DOING FOR SIX MONTHS, AND TWO, WHY DIDN’T HE HAVE ROUGE TELL THE RESISTANCE THAT THEY WERE FAKES? 83.Sonic almosts gets to fight Shadow. 84.Shadow gets to fight Shadow. 85.Shadow uses Chaos Control without a Chaos Emerald. 86.No Chaos or Shadow Boss fight for us. 87.Capital City is the best stage because Infinite actually poses somewhat of a threat. 88.Of course, because a plan that took a minute and a half to think up is a good idea. 89.Nobody objects to Knuckles’ plan. Hell, Vector praises him for it. 89.5: Where the fuck did the resistance get the time and materials to steal half of Eggman's fleet and paint each ship blue and white? 90.Tails says that since the resistance has Classic Sonic, they should be able to take Metropolis. Well, one, Classic Sonic can barely run, and two, nooo, you see, Classic Sonic doesn’t get a Metropolis act. 91.Infinite holds up his arm like he’s holding a Phantom Ruby whenever he changes gravity. 92.Sonic never said any of what he says in the cutscene. 93.Okay, Infinite, you were following us for most of the stage, why are you just standing there on a walkway and wondering if you can face a real challenge? Maybe Infinite also has amnesia... 94.Also, the lighting Sonic is in during the cutscene made me realize Sonic has a realistic Skin texture. e_e 95.DUDE, YOU CAN FUCK WITH REALITY, WHY ARE YOU FIRING RED CUBES AT US?? 96.Ultra-Powerful Reality Bending Villain gets beaten by a 13 year old kid. 97.Infinite doesn’t notice that the Avatar drops the Phantom Ruby. 98.Infinite questions how the Avatar overrode his power despite the Phantom Ruby being clearly visible in the Avatar’s hand. 99.Classic Sonic drowns so fast. 100.“Chemical Plant - Chemical Plant” 101.What is a Data Archive doing in a Chemical Plant? 102.That first jump is literally impossible to make as intended because of Classic’s awful Physics. 103.TEN TERABYTES OF SELFIES?! 104.Red Gate Bridge, huh? This Bridge looks pretty shor--Oh it’s gone I guess the stage is over now--What? This isn’t the Bridge? Oh, alright. 105.Oh, wow, one of the Death Egg Robots actually attacks us! 106....Aaaand it’s gone. 107.The track name for this Death Egg Robot QTE sequence is ‘Mark II locks on!’ So...Like...What? 108.Oh look, Metal Sonic. Oh, look. He’s massive. Oh, look. He’s useless. 109.Why did Eggman and Infinite start chasing the fucking Avatar? 110.Knuckles, the Chemical plant is halfway across the world. That crab thing will not be able to get there. And that wasn’t even the point of the mission! 111.What is a Death Egg Control Station doing in a Chemical Plant? 112.No ‘Find the Computer Room!’ joke. Two missed opportunities, SEGA. 113.The flowing chemicals are ridiculous. 114.I get they already interacted with Classic Sonic before, but Tails, just because Classic Sonic is a Sonic, doesn’t mean he’s gonna get through every challenge flawlessly. 115.All Classic did was blow up like, 8 badniks. He didn’t do anything. Knuckles and Vector did all the work with the generator. 116.The reactor doesn’t look like it’s about to explode. 117.Upon seeing 118.Wait, why does the Phantom Ruby need a power source when the prototypes work just fine? Also, the power source needs a power source. Also, if the Ruby needs a power source, how the hell was he able to use it during Episode Shadow, before the Death Egg or Metropolis was built? 119.Look I get that the whole point of Guardian Rock was to distract Eggman but Eggman and Infinite weren’t even in Guardian Rock and were probably somewhere else before this. So why are they suddenly in Green Hill again? 120.Why does Eggman just watch as his Death Egg gets destroyed? 121.Metropolitan Highway, huh? This stage is pretty cool actua--Did I just boost right off the road? YOU’VE BEEN TEACHING ME TO BOOST BLINDLY THIS ENTIRE GAME. Dick. 122.THE PLATFORMING IN METROPOLITAN HIGHWAY IS SO ANNOYING 123.Tails, once again, WATCHES AS HIS FRIEND GETS KIDNAPPED. 124.You decided to learn from your mistakes by building a backup power source? GOOD! Only took you 26 years… 125.Oh, wow, this place looks pretty damn cool--WHAT. 126.Okay, I’ll give that a half-pass, because Null Space has a ton of different paths. But only half because there’s unused dialogue that implies a much longer stage. And concept art with a Boss Fight. 127.DUDE, JUST OPEN ANOTHER PORTAL AND TRAP THE ENTIRE RESISTANCE IN NULL SPACE. IT CLEARLY USES LESS ENERGY THAN THE SUN. 128.What the fuck? How did they get the entire resistance into one area? Actually, to be more specific, how the fuck did they get the whole god damn resistance into Eggman’s MAIN Fortress with no opposition? I know it’s a trap, but jesus. 129.How did Eggman know the entire resistance would break into the Fortress at that specific time just in time for him to unleash his plan? 130.The Resistance gets to fight Chaos and Shadow. 131.You know, if the resistance didn’t go into the Fortress, then Eggman’s plan would have been a waste. Easy win! 132.Infinite doesn’t even talk to Shadow once. I thought Shadow was half the reason you became Infinite. Yep. Definitely has amnesia. 133.WHERE DID OMEGA COME FROM?! 134.This is the only time in the entire main story that Omega speaks. Or is seen, apart from earlier and before the credits. 135.Eggman, if your plan works, the Sun will destroy you and your entire base as well. 136.WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST CREATE A SUN EARLIER? 137.Why isn’t the avatar with everyone else? 138.Why are they still calling the Avatar a rookie? 139.IMPERIAL TOWER HAS AWFUL LEVEL DESIGN. Why did they think that platforming while avoiding laser orbs with wall jumping (only time it’s used) over a massive pit was a good idea? 140.This is clearly where the game started getting rushed. 141.THE LASERS ARE SO AGGRAVATING! 142.Why is everyone just staring at the sun? It’s closer, too, so… 143.Also, despite there being a massive sun over the place, the fortress is still dark. 144.How nice of the Clones to politely wait as we await a miracle. 145.Okay seriously, WHY IS NOBODY FIGHTING? WERE THEY JUST STANDING THERE STARING AT EACHOTHER? 146.The avatar grapples onto a fucking sun. 147.What did the avatar grapple onto to avoid falling to their death? 148.Oh, shut up, Tails. You didn’t do anything in this game. 149.Mortar Canyon is such a good stage, It’s too bad it’s so short. 150.Is...Is this boss literally just the fucking Metal Sonic boss? For fuck’s sake. 151.What? The Phantom Ruby’s energy is recharged? The Prototype the avatar had is destroyed? Well, INFINITE, MAKE ANOTHER FUCKING SUN! 152.And with that, Infinite falls into the pit of characters SEGA will forget ever existed! Thanks for another waste of a villain, Sonic Team. 153.Wait, wasn’t Infinite like...a living person? Eggman just kinda...poofed his body out of existence...That’s...Terrifying. 154.WHY IS THERE AUTOSCROLLING?! WHY?!?! 155.IT’S TITANIC MONARCH ALL OVER AGAIN EXCEPT WITH SHITTY PHYSICS HAVE MERCY 156.Amy randomly fangirls over 2 Sonics out of fucking nowhere despite not obsessing over either for the entire game until now. 157.What the fuck is with the stupid rolling spike wheels? How is that a defense mechanism? 158.Final Judgement’s track goes on for so much longer than the first part. 159.Aaaand those are infinite clones in those tubes. Too bad there’s no acknowledgement of them! Also, does Infinite know Eggman cloned him? I feel like that’s a breach of trust. Also, wait, he uses the Overclocked Ruby to clone Infinite anyways, so why have the clones? Sonic and the Avatar destroyed the decoy reactor so they’d all get blown up anyways. 160.Heart of Nova? Is that you? 161.Sonic and the Avatar destroy the reactor which is apparently a decoy, but Tails says that’s where the Ruby was sent to and the Reactor is still in the tower anyways. So if it blew up as much as it did, there’s no reason the Imperial Tower wouldn’t have blown up in the process. 162.Oh wow, Eggman is the final boss and had one last trap. What a surprise. 163.Death Egg Robot? No, that’s just Lyric with Eggman’s face and eight arms. 164.Is this not just the Egg Dragoon boss with a laser and a moving platform? 165.Wow, the only challenging Boss in the whole game...wait a second...This is Eggman’s mech fight from Rise of Lyric! WHY WOULD YOU TAKE A BOSS FROM THE WORST SONIC GAME AT THE TIME AND USE IT FOR THE FINAL BOSS?! 166.BITCH HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW YOU WERE GOING TO DESTROY THE PLATFORMS? 167.Death Egg Robot Shuts off, ominous red glowing thing breaks glass chamber holding the Ruby. Now, I wasn’t the only one expecting Infinite, right? 168.OH MY FUCKING GOD, ANOTHER FUCKING NEGA WISP? COULD YOU GUYS DO ANYTHING ORIGINAL? 169.Classic returns home, and Sonic says to Tails: “I’m sure we’ll run into him again.” And the entire Sonic fanbase collectively yelled: “NO!” 170.Not Really related to Forces, but according to Sonic Mania Adventures, Classic Sonic had a Chaos Emerald the entire time he was in Forces. One: What the fuck. Two: Weren’t all of the emeralds repelled by the Ruby when it opened the portal in Egg Reverie? 171.Thanks for the inspirational speech, Sonic. Unfortunately, we’re too deep in now. 172.Eggman Empire: 0.01%. Look, at this point I’m not even surprised Eggman survived that. And if he didn’t, HEYYY INFINITE!...What, a girl can dream, can’t she? 173.Another speech by Tails. 174.Sonic just leaves and has his friends clean up the mess, as usual. 175.And with that, the avatar, the best part of the game, is presumably gone forever! VICTORY MUSIC! Missions/Bonus+Extra Stages: 1.Literally fuck Fire Cannon 2. 2.Reverse block isn’t playable as Super Sonic for some reason. 3.These timed missions are bullshit. 4.I was going to complain about the lack of Classic Bonus stages, but I think we’re better off without that. 5.Why the fuck do we have number rings and silver moon rings? They don’t do anything!! DLC: 1.(1 and 2 are from before Super Sonic was made free) “All DLC will be free!”, they said. HA, JUST KIDDING, THE PREQUEL DLC AND MEME SHIRTS ARE FREE BUT SUPER SONIC WILL COST 2 BUCKS. (Glad they made it free.) 2.Super Sonic will cost money despite being an essential, free part of the series since 1992. Pathetic.( Again, Glad they changed it.) 3.SEGA bothered to model Infinite/Zero but like, barely anything aside from his muzzle. Because that and his body is all we see. 4.Sanic shirts. Okay, it’s funny-ish, but...why?? 5.Super Sonic is unlockable from the very beginning of the game. Ugh. 6.Super Sonic is only playable in one boss fight because the stage itself isn’t listed as a ‘VS’ stage. (The Stage being Red Gate Bridge/Metal Sonic) And 50 rings are still obtainable in every boss except the Egg Dragoon, so .. 7.There’s still one more unannounced DLC that’s been updated a few weeks ago. Merchandising/Product Placement: 1.So much of this game was product placement. Hooters, Parkour Academy, Comics, ect. Development: 1.A bit of false advertising. (Episode Shadow told us we’d discover ‘the fate of Team Dark’ but nothing bad happened to any of them except for Omega, who comes back with no explanation near the end of the game.) 2.The truckloads of unused content that could’ve at least given this game some replayability. 3.The fact that the Phantom Ruby was never intended to be the gem from Mania and had it’s name changed halfway through development to tie Mania and Forces together. At least they have semi-similar abilities. 4.I’m just gonna link this here since I don’t wanna rewrite the whole damn thing in here: https://www.reddit.com/SonicTheHedgehog/comments/8v4vl8/probably_everything_unusedscrappedchanged_in/
What is Oyo? Behind Softbank’s Latest High Growth, High Valuation Bet
This Softbank-backed company has a wild valuation. Sky-high growth. Potential to disrupt an entire industry. And no profits in sight. No, we’re not talking about WeWork. Meet Oyo. The hotel startup—based in India—renovates existing buildings and upgrades services to meet a set of uniform standards that has made it a global leader in the hospitality market. And it doubled its valuation to $10 billion after the company announced last week it is raising $1.5 billion in capital to expand its presence in foreign markets, including the U.S. and the U.K, according to a company statement. Founder Ritesh Agarwal will lead the round financing, putting up $700 million, while other investors such as SoftBank and Sequoia India will pick up the rest of the tab. Agarwal secured loans worth $2 million from Mizuho Financial Group and Nomura Holdings, which he will use in part to purchase new shares of Oyo, according to Bloomberg. Agarwal plans to use the rest of the loans to buy $1.3 billion worth of shares from Oyo’s existing investors as part of his previously announced plan to increase his stake in the company to 30%. He will use an entity called RA Hospitality Holdings to complete the transactions. Oyo, which operates 1.2 million rooms in 80 countries, has been aggressive in its push to grow outside of India’s borders in recent months, and last week’s announcement falls in line with the company’s plan. Abhihav Sinha, chief operating officer for Oyo, told Fortune India in June the company wanted to “be in 15-20 large countries across the globe.” The company purchased Amsterdam-based @Leasure, a vacation rental company, for $410 million in May while in the U.S., Oyo drew in Airbnb as an investor in April and also purchased the Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas in August. The acquisitions excite investors who see Oyo dominating the hotel industry in the future. “Oyo’s two capabilities—efficient transformation of existing hotels and tech-enabled property management—provide the foundation for the company to become the largest hotel chain in the world someday,” Mohit Bhatnagar, managing director, Sequoia Capital India Advisors, told Fortune India. But this unprecedented growth comes with some concern the company won’t be able to deliver a “high-quality living experience consistently” given the pace of expansion. Agarwal said in the interview with _Fortune India_that company has been profitable on a year-over-year basis at the building level after previously refusing to comment on when the company would be profitable to _The Wall Street Journal_in July. Agarwal is putting his money where his mouth is though. While unusual for a founder to lead a financing round, the move seems to be an encouraging sign for investors, said Anat Alon-Beck, an assistant professor who studies unicorn companies at Case Western Reserve University. “He’s not just maintaining control without putting money in—he’s also playing the game,” Alon-Beck said. “He’s showing investors, ‘Look, I can bring in money, too, from my own pocket. I took out loans. I have skin in the game. I’m risking my own capital.’” Others, however, question whether it’s a red flag that Agarwal did not secure an institutional investor to head the round. Getting a well-known firm to be the lead equates to a vote of confidence for other investors, said Ken Ngyuen, CEO of Republic, an investment platform. “The optimal approach would be to get an external institution,” Nguyen said. While Nguyen said there’s nothing wrong with what Agarwal is doing, it’s a rather unique scenario for an individual to secure a loan of the size the 25-year-old was able to get. Nguyen thinks institutional investors are a “little more cautious” with Oyo now. The company, which was founded in 2013, had raised $1.7 billion in previous rounds of funding and was valued at $5 billion before the recent funding news, according to Crunchbase. Agarwal keeps attracting high-profile investors like SoftBank, which will keep driving Oyo’s valuation higher, Alon-Beck said. “You don’t need public markets for money if you’re a unicorn,” Alon-Beck said. “Once you’ve joined the unicorn club, you’re going to get plenty of investors.” Earning SoftBank’s seal of approval has been one of the first steps in reaching that goal because the investment fund brings “incredible validity to startups,” said Gabe Uribe of L.A. Tech House. For SoftBank, it furthers the company’s move into India, where it has also invested in the country’s most-valuable startup Paytm, a digital payment firm that is valued around $15 billion. That comes as other investments such as Uber and WeWork have left CEO Masayoshi Son “embarrassed and impatient” because of his recent track record. But Uribe does not see these investments as indicative of SoftBank’s ability to spot value. He puts the failing performances on the startups themselves. “The fund’s job is to recognize and identify innovative technologies, which it has and continues to do,” Uribe said. “The fund is a tech incubator, not a financial advisory group. So I don’t think it’s fair to see mishandled IPOs as a reflection of Softbank.” That may be, but certainly SoftBank is hoping that this high growth, high valuation bet turns out better than WeWork.
Me 36F with my 36M bf, three years, he went to a bachelor party and I don't know how to address it
On the weekend my bf went to a bachelor party. The guy getting married ("S") is a client of my bf's. They met a few years ago through a sport they both participate in. Bf kept telling me for weeks leading up to this that he was not looking forward to going. He kept saying he was only going because S was a client and his friends who'd be coming were a good source of new clients. His business does require him to schmooze like that. Bf doesn't really like S a whole lot, and he doesn't have a great reputation (I participate in this sport too and it's a small community). I met S once and he was ok but I got a douchy vibe off of him. Bf comes from a country where drugs are a problem (violence, trafficking, gangs, organized crime, etc.), and has lost close friends in drug related violence so he's staunchly anti-drug, and S is into drugs. Bf was stressed the guys would be doing drugs and being all around assholes. Twelve guys went to this bachelor party which was out of town for one night. They're all younger than bf and I, late 20's. They're much more wild and energetic than bf. So anyway, bf was in a terrible mood as he left, and had told me the first stop on their agenda was lunch at a strip club (bf never goes to strip clubs and thinks they're "nasty" - at least what he tells me). While the idea of it didn't exactly fill me with joy I didn't really care too much and trusted he wasn't going to do something to hurt me. So off he goes around 10 a.m. and I didn't hear from him until around 10 p.m. that night. I had fallen asleep so didn't hear his texts and calls. He first said they were heading to a club, he wasn't drunk so I shouldn't worry about him, but I was asleep so didn't see it. He got worried about me, called a friend of mine, said he hoped I was ok, love you, etc., but I texted him back around midnight after I woke up and said all was well love you too, I'd just fallen asleep. He replied he was glad. We didn't talk again. I wanted to give him space to socialize and schmooze or whatever he felt he needed to do. He texted in the morning too, said he would be back before noon. When he came home (we live together) he was super tired. He took a three hour nap. I didn't ask him about it and figured he'd tell me when he wasn't so out of it. In the evening he told me:
the strip club was nasty, S got a lap dance, some of the guys took a couple of the strippers into a separate room later and got hand jobs or something.
They went to an escape room and he seemed to like that. He also went bowling.
He told me how the guys did so much coke. At one point he turned around in his car (he drove a bunch of these guys around) and there was coke everywhere and he freaked out and told them to put that shit away they weren't to do it in his car. They took it outside, it was windy and it was blowing everywhere there was coke on everything, etc. He said it was ridiculous and he was pissed.
He said they were wired on coke so few people ate and he ate at Hooters when they ended up there later on that day.
They went to a club later on and had a booth and bottle service and he got a bit drunk. There were girls in their booth, including one whose daughter (???wtf???) was caught in the bathroom with one of the stag guys having sex. According to bf "the girl seemed to grab the guy and just kind of pull him into the bathroom and when he came out adjusting his clothes we all laughed." The mother was trying to rope another one of the stag guys into a threesome with her and another girl. S got caught by a bouncer doing coke in the bathroom.
They went to a casino after the club. Bf can't stand gambling either and said he just wandered around a little until he left.
They shared hotel rooms (three guys to a room), and bf said they put him with one of the more "quiet" guys but that guy was the guy caught having sex in the bathroom and sleeping was a pain.
They all went to S's room (he had a suite with a pool) to hang out and drink and they ordered escorts. The guys apparently wanted to order the strippers from earlier that day but they were busy. So they called escorts to do a lesbian show and everyone had to put in $40, including bf. Bf says he left before the girls got there to go to bed but heard the girls were "boring" and just stood around drinking their booze because they weren't strippers but escorts. Bf says some of the guys slept with them.
So. I get it, bachelor parties can be wild but this was pretty rotten sounding from my perspective. I asked bf if these guys had gf's. He said "most of them have wives. Some have gf's." I said it was terrible. Then bf said we shouldn't judge because we don't know what kind of "relationships" they have. Maybe they have "understandings." I was pretty horrified and said that we should be real, most relationships aren't like that. Bf wants us to hang out with S and soon-to-be new wife and I find the idea just terrible when I know what S was up to. Also, 1) I hate thinking about bf being involved in this kind of lifestyle and 2) even though he's never given me a reason before to think he'd cheat on me, I don't like thinking about him hanging out with people like this and condoning it. I want to trust him, but it's hard hearing this story. Because of the sport bf is involved in, in summers he's often away for weekends or even a week here or there to participate and I know some of those guys cheat on their wives/gfs. Bf knows one older rich guy in this sport bf is always telling me about who has a long-term mistress, and others on the side, and bf's even said "oh so-and-so is always saying don't tell your gf about my other ladies don't want her thinking ill of me" and then wants us to get together with him and his wife. Obviously I do think ill of him and don't want to meet his wife. On the one hand I'm glad bf tells me because I would worry if he didn't it was because he was also participating...on the other it's getting to the point that I wonder if he could also be doing it but leaving that part out. I know you have to trust your partner...but him surrounding himself with people who act like this worries me that he'll see it as "no big deal" or something. He defends this older rich guy because I think he sort of looks up to him like a father figure and says that we shouldn't judge if we're not in their shoes, blah blah blah. I've always told bf cheating is an absolute deal breaker for me and he knows it. Hearing about this weekend made me nervous and hearing bf defend this shitty behaviour of others (seems to be a repeating pattern) makes me concerned. I don't know if I should talk to him about my concerns or just let it lie? tl;dr: Bf went to a wild bachelor party and now I'm questioning his morals.
Trip Report- Dirt Cheap Vegas Trip with Hooters Review and Naps!
TLDR; 20 something couple who has been to Vegas before stayed at Hooters Hotel and Casino 4 nights, 5 days with airfare and resort fee for $887 and it was worth every penny. Hooters Hotel and Casino: With the flight, hotel and resort fee we paid $444 a person which we thought was too good to pass up. The hotel wasn't as bad as I expected it to be but it was pretty old. It is located a short walk to the strip which accessible by going into Tropicana located next door and using a bridge. When we booked this trip we only expected to be at this hotel to sleep at night and we ended up staying there for a lot more since it beat our expectations. Some parts of the hotel are "nice" and newish and some aren't. The new parts will NEVER be comparable to many of the casino's listed in the faq(even the budget ones) but that doesn't make it bad. If you are a regular person that doesn't need fancy shit or all you plan on doing is sleeping here(bachelobachelorette party or 21st birthday) it's great. The casino was small and never crowded, it was great for gambling a bit at the end of the night since it's almost impossible to get lost or lose whoever you are with. There was a cafe area with a coffee place, Krispy Kreme donuts and a Pizza Hut. There was also a pool bar, Hooters, and Steak n' Shake. They boasted about free parking, $15 buckets of bud light, and $1 margaritas inside the casino bar. The room service seemed incredibly cheap but we did not use it. Our room was average and as far as we know it was not one that was recently remodeled. The bathroom wasn't very nice and the safe was busted. It looked as if the Bathroom had been done about 10 years ago and the glaze was coming off of the bathtub corners. The room was clean and it had two awkward chairs that belonged in the 70's around a small table. We both thought that a reclinechair was missing from the room due to empty space. The bed was very comfortable and we slept amazing. The AC was ice cold and we had a tiny balcony overlooking the pool. It was $25 a night for a mini-fridge which we decided against and I kept filling up bags of ice and moving it from the sink when needed. If you are not flying in, bring a cooler and save yourself the money or go buy a cheap cooler at Walgreens on the strip for $8. The pool was very clean and quiet, it felt like we were the only people there most of the time and I got a ton of reading done. You couldn't bring your own alcohol or food and the security was tight. The menu seemed decently priced for a pool in vegas. If you stay at Hooters I highly recommend purchasing the Hooya One Pass, it comes with two different show tickets, a coupon for a free margarita, buy 10 wings get 10 wings, and a 1 hour open bar with wings NIGHTLY between 5-6 pm. At the same bar the drinks cost $5 during happy hour and we watched numerous hotel guests spend more than $20 on drinks in just that hour. I must've eaten about 100 wings and had over 30 drinks the entire trip because of this pass. The bartenders were really great to us during the open bar and we always had a drink in our hand. It saved us a ton of money on dinnelunch but I would've liked to have done one more nice dinner. It also would have been nice if we didn't have to go back to the hotel for 5pm every day but, my GF and I really enjoyed the happy hour, a nap, and a shower before going out for the night(not always in that order). It seemed like a lot of teenage kids were staying in the hotel for a basketball tournament or something and I never saw any parents. I observed a bunch of people staying in some rooms and the kids would sit outside of the room to charge their phones in the hallway. We had one issue with the kids, we were trying to go down and two girls got off our floor, when we got in the elevator all of the buttons were pressed to go up. It wasn't a big deal to us but it could be to people looking to make a show or relax and not have to deal with that crap. The elevator was also kind of shady and it seemed like it skipped our floor or something a few times when trying to go down. I don't know it it happens a lot but both of these things probably don't happen at places on the strip. Monday: We left my house at 3:30 am and flew Spirit Airlines from Newark to LAS which landed at 8:40 am. I'll never fly spirit again if I can help it. It was a $14 taxi to the Hotel where they wanted to charge a $25 early check in fee, we debated and decided to drop off our luggage and explore the area so that we could stay up a little longer before crashing since we got roughly 3 hours of sleep. While walking the strip we decided to get a quick bite to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company since there is one in NYC and we've always wanted to go. We each got a flavored margarita which we normally don't get and they were pretty good, she got a shrimp po' boy, and I got calamari and a gigantic bucket of french fries. We mostly went to some shops for gifts and got supplies like shampoo, sunscreen and water for the week at Walgreens and the Liquor store. We checked in at 2:30, unpacked and took a nap. Between 5-6 we had an open bar(well and domestic drafts) at the pool bar with complementary wings and vegetables because we purchased the Hooyah One Pass for $20. At 7pm we took a Lyft to Freemont for a tour at Bangor Brewing. We had a flight and 2 or 3 beers. The guy giving us the tour waited patiently for us since our driver didn't follow directions and we were late. We were the only people on the tour but the place was pretty packed for a while. We explored Freemont Street for the remaining of the night which was very fun and interesting. If I had a kid under the age of 9 I wouldn't bring them but it honestly wasn't that bad besides some girls in thongs, pasties, and dominatrix looking girls(if your kid has an Instagram they have seen worse). Security walked a beat like they were riot cops and one came up to us and told us we couldn't drink in cans on Freemont and that we could drink out of plastic cups instead. He was really cool and I swore he was a cop until we saw real cops. Heads up to anyone. I really liked the vibe of Freemont but the light show was honestly terrible, I may have been spoiled by light shows at concerts and sporting events from a previous job, my girlfriend thinks that the show just needed different music... Tuesday: We woke up around 8:30 am and went to breakfast at the Steak n' Shake in Hooters. The food was average but service was slow(we never went back). We went to the pool for an hour or two before we went to a timeshare sales pitch for fun and free stuff(buffet and freeplay). I did the math and the $9,999 timeshare came out to be $33,000 over seven years. Once I gave the numbers and said no the guy became a HUGE dick. Sadly, one person bought one. Once the timeshare pitch was finished we went to the liquor store again. We got lunch at Taco's and Tequila where we split nachos and each had a few margaritas. I think they were some of the best margaritas I've ever had. Later we napped and went to the open bar before going to use my freeplay. After we finished loosing $100 in freeplay and getting tons of free drinks, I decided I had to go and see what a dispensary was like. I don't know the rules about posting about this so I will answer questions in a PM. I will also elaborate with a mod's approval since I think it could be really helpful. After getting back to the hotel we went to Hooters for some more wings and went to bed. Wednesday: We hung out at the pool for a few hours and we went exploring again. We walked around 15 miles this day and I wish we'd had gotten a light rail pass or Ubered to the end of the strip and walked back. We both like exploring things though so none of us mentioned it until it was too late. We didn't have anything planned for this day until we got back to the hotel and looked at all of the comedy clubs. We decided on the late show to see Jimmy Shubert at the Laugh Factory in Tropicana because it was close by and I actually knew of the opening act, Jason Lawhead, because of Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast. It was a pretty good show for the price we paid, and we got to see the worst heckler ever get thrown out. The night got hazy for me and I think we went to Hooters for some wings, fries, and onion rings before going to our room and passing out(probably with my shoes on). Thursday: We actually had plans! We woke up with purpose and got breakfast at Coco's Bakery, a short walk from where we were staying. It was cheap and some of the better breakfast food I've had in a while including some of the diners here in NJ, I wish we could've gone again. After breakfast, we went to the pool before heading to the Mirage for a late lunch buffet thanks to Tahiti Village. Next, we used MyVegas rewards at New York New York for buy one get one crepes at 48th and Crepe which were amazing and we cashed in a ticket for buy one get one 40 oz beers at Tom's Urban. It was happy hour so the beers were under the voucher limit and we basically got them for free + tip which was great considering their somewhat decent selection of draft beer. We went back to the open bar for 5pm, napped and got ready for dinner at Black Tap in the Venetian which was everything I thought it would be and more. I wish I had room for a Crazy Shake but I could barely finish my burger and I only ate 3 onion rings, luckily there is one in NYC. At 10pm we saw John Caparulo at Harrah's. The show was average and I think he could've really used an opening act to get the crowd going instead of awkwardly walking on stage. It was pretty empty, we got GA cheap seats and got moved up to the 5th row. We gambled pretty late and made fun of all the people waiting in line at the club at MGM Grand at 2:30 in the morning, these people looked miserable and hadn't even been in the club yet. I don't miss those days. Friday: We laid in bed for most of the morning since there was not an option for a late checkout and we weren't leaving for the Airport until 8 PM. We double and triple checked for everything and I swear I packed a few things that I can no longer find(it's not a vacation until I've lost something). We checked out around 11am and stored our luggage with the valet. We went to the M&M Store and did the free 3d movie which was pretty entertaining since I don't think I have ever seen a 3d movie before. We decided on going to the Bodies exhibit at Luxor which was pretty cool but probably not worth $30 with an MLife card. We also took the tram to Mandalay Bay which was pretty nice but very empty and kind of eerie. It also smelled like a funeral home or church or something. We cashed in another couple of MyVegas rewards and went to Tom's Urban again for 40oz beers(on happy hour). We also ordered the two way fries which consisted of shoe string and sweet potato fries. They were out of this world! Finally we went to Coyote Ugly for buy one get one drinks(MyVegas). My GF has always wanted to go here but none of her friends ever would go with her. We both fell in love with the bartender and we talked for about an hour about life in Vegas before heading back to the open bar and did some last minute gift shopping. In all we did a lot of gambling, walking around, and exploring. We also talked with a ton of locals and tried to get a feel for the place. I'm not a fan of most shows and she had seen most of them in her previous travels. I really wanted to change the hotel after booking it and she kept insisting that it'd be fine. Besides using MyVegas a trick we learned was to use your Mlife card for anything you purchase inside an MGM casino, it doesn't matter if you are buying show tickets or a frozen drink, you'll get points from your purchase. I expect to get a ton of comps to use at the Borgata and I think we are coming back for the Golden Knights/Devils game in January. My total expenses for the trip came out to be $1190.75 based on all of my credit card statements and cash that I had left over in my wallet. This includes my half of the hotel, resort, plane and all of the booze, rides, and gambling I did.
I finished all of the classes I need for my major a semester early, so I'm done with college. I'm working a full time job as a Special Education Assistant at a local elementary school, so I still get spring break, which naturally meant a Vegas trip. My friends’ reactions varied from “weren’t you just there?!?” to “how many times have you been there?” (5, not that I’m counting), to “of course you are.” (Un)fortunately all of my buddies from college had spring break a week before mine, so I had an excuse for a solo trip. I really enjoy solo trips. I love the freedom that comes with them, and being able to call the shots however I want without having to worry about anyone else. I like meeting people, doing my own thing, and being able to follow my whims. That said, in a crazy turn of events, I was able to coordinate a meeting with a girl I’d matched with on Tinder (hereafter referred to as Cinderella). I matched with her a year ago during a layover at O’Hare on my way back from Japan, and we’ve talked off and on. Her spring break lined up with mine, and I jokingly invited her. She actually took e seriously, and by that point I couldn’t back out, so it was on. I flew out to the desert on Sunday and came back Thursday evening, whereas I got her to fly out Tuesday and leave Thursday morning, leaving me ample time for gambling on both ends. I budgeted my usual $100 a day for gambling, for a $500 bankroll. I’ve been refining my money management system to ensure that I keep enough in the kitty to keep gambling and keep coming to Vegas. The gist of it is that I bring a fresh $100 bill with me each day, and keep whatever I have left at the end of the day for next time. I try to protect my winnings by cashing out my initial buy in if I double it, pocketing that for the next trip, and playing only the amount of my initial buy in, hopefully with many more pocketed chips. I really have to stick to this and a preset loss limit because I’m operating on a loss limit. I booked a flight on Allegiant, direct from Colorado Springs for $76 one way. I was hoping the flight back would go down, but it never did, so I ended up paying $170 for the flight back. Not too bad considering I had three nights comped at the Golden Gate and I didn’t have to pay for a shuttle from DIA (I just gave my buddy some whiskey for the trouble of driving me). I maxed out my comped room offer at the Golden Gate, booking for three nights from Sunday-Tuesday. I stayed at Harrah's Wednesday, since I like to take the strip in for one day (after I get the gambling out of my system), and also because I wanted to give Tinderella the full Vegas experience for her first time. As per usual, I fit my grossly overpacked bag under the seat as a "personal item" in order to avoid paying the exorbitant bag fees. It's a point of pride for me to be able to stick it to the airlines and efficiently pack 4 days worth of things into a small grocery bag. In a related matter of principle, my signature shooters of rum made the trip to COS with me. A friend and his partner picked me up from the airport and we went to Pho Kim Long. It was my first time eating Vietnamese, and I really enjoyed it. I sampled some pho, grilled chicken, milk tea, and an eggplant dish. It was all so good, and I was so starving, that I forgot to document any of it. I checked into my room at the Golden Gate, and dropped my bags off. As per usual, the room was loud and I could hear people walking in the halls, and the shower has two temperatures: freezing or scorching. Oh well, free is free. I went down to the players club to redeem my Allegiant match play (2 $25 chips if you show a confirmation number within 24 hours of landing). I was pleasantly surprised to see the same lady who helped me last time. She remembered me and said it was great to see me again and we chatted while she redeemed my offers. It felt pretty good to have someone remember me in Vegas, although it did make me feel slightly degenerate at the same time (not that that makes me feel bad; it’s a point of pride). In addition to my room, I also had $10 of free slot play and $15 of food credit at DuPar's. Who says gambling can't pay off? SUNDAY I went to Binion's to play some Bonus Poker, which was more like Boner Poker. I got boned for $60 without hitting anything particularly noteworthy. The scattered straights and flushes that I hit weren't enough to bring me positive, and I was chasing my losses the whole time. I got $5 free play and a $10 food credit for the cafe on my Motherlode spins. Down to my last $40 for the day less than 30 minutes into the night, I was pretty frustrated. Since it was already late, I decided to play aggressive and try to turn it around. I went to the Golden Gate and bought into blackjack with all of my bankroll for the night a little after midnight. I wasn't having much luck, even though everyone at the table besides me seemed to be winning. I was down to my last $25, so I went all in with my match play. I’m a (single) red chip player, so betting green is huge for me. At a quarter of my bankroll, and all that I have left, I’m freaking out. I can barely stand to look up, and I see an Ace. I try to stay calm and not get ahead of myself, and then the second card comes: Jack! I hit a blackjack for a sweet $75 payout that brought me right back to where I'd started for the day. I pocketed 2 greens and kept playing with the remaining $50. I worked up the courage to put down my second match play after steadily increasing my chip count and pocketing a couple more greens. On the second big matchplay hand, my 17 beat a dealer bust. I pocketed another $50 and kept playing. At this point, my bankroll management strategy is really coming into play. I’m fairly steadily pocketing greens, (and $5 worth of 50¢ chips from blackjacks). I was tipping generously, betting a dollar for the dealer every few hands. It was a good table, with a fun lesbian couple (who played with horrible strategy, splitting 10s and staying on 14s, to name a few… luckily I don’t mind how others play, because in the long run it events out) and some nice guys who came in later. I got a pair of aces, which I split only to get 2 more aces and learn that you aren't allowed to resplit aces. My 2 12s lost to a dealer 17 which was painful, but I can't complain too much after paying for my flight with the match play alone. A new dealer came in after a while and all of my friends left, so I was playing heads up. I wasn't feeling it, so after I lost $25 I colored up and walked away with $250 at 4:30am. It was a huge relief to lock in half of my bankroll as a guaranteed return the first night, especially after being down so fast. I was so wired after playing for 4+ hours and increasing my buy in 8x that I couldn't sleep, so I called both of my parents before they went to work and texted my degenerate cousin the great news. $100 in, $250 out (+$150) +$150 on the trip MONDAY I slept until noon and took it easy after waking up. I went to Mermaid's for some quick drink service to start the day, and turned $5 into $20 on a vintage nickel WoF multireel. Unfortunately the luck didn't continue, and I donked it (and $60) off at Boner Poker. I hit a few full houses/flushes/straights, but it wasn't enough to get me above water. I hit four to a royal twice, but couldn’t finish it either time. Had lunch at Binion's, using my $10 voucher to get pancakes, scrambled eggs, and wheat toast. At least I got something (a $100 brunch) out of all the Boner Poker losses. I bought into $3 craps at the Fremont for $21. I've been cutting my teeth at $1 craps at the Wildwood Casino out in Colorado, so I was excited to give it a shot in Vegas. I lucked out and ran my $21 up to $50. I should've pressed harder since two shooters had rolls of 26 and 27, but at least I left with something. I went to the D for some horses and cocktails. I bought in for $30 and was hammered by the end. I had enough wins to keep me there for a few hours, including a nice 105 payout on 4-5. I called it an early night and went to bed around midnight since I was so drunk and because I'd lost all my money. $100 in, $0 out (-$100) +$50 on the trip TUESDAY I woke up with a nice hangover from all of the Whiskey Cokes I'd drank at the Derby the previous night, so I did the only thing to do in that situation: mimosas and a greasy burger (after buying overpriced Advil at the ABC store). I went to Flippin' Good Burgers and got my usual, the Farm Burger. It's one of all time favorite burgers and I love getting it every time! I can't recommend them enough. I donked off $40 on Boner Poker at Binion’s and some random slots, and blew $10 at 25¢ roulette at the El Cortez. I was chasing a 20 (not sure why, I just had a hunch... Maybe Nate is rubbing off on me) and didn't hit it, so I lost after treading water for a while. After losing all this before lunch, I decided to add a discretionary $20 more to my kitty for the day. My tinderella got in about 2:30 in the afternoon, at which point I was playing craps. I made her wait until the roll was done to go meet her, like the true degenerate I am. She wasn't happy that I made her wait with all of her bags, but I can't say that I regret my choices. After she dropped her stuff off, we went to Binion’s where I used a $10 coupon to pay for my guilty pleasure of country fried steak and eggs. I picked up the rest of the tab with comp dollars, which was pretty satisfying for a low roller like me. After lunch, Tinderella wanted to play blackjack, so naturally I obliged. Bought in for $30 at the GG and was able to run it up to $50. She was gambling with scared money (she bought in for $5…) and didn't really enjoy it, but that didn't stop me. We headed to the Fremont for craps, but she didn't want to play. We can't all be degenerates. I bought in for $30 and played for a while and could tell she was getting bored. I told her (in between rolls of course) that she's welcome to leave any time, and she was gone before the next shooter sevened out. I stayed for a while, and with the help of a hot shooter was able to cash out for $100. I went to GG for $25 worth of BJ before bed, content that I'd locked in $100 on the day. I played for a good 2 hours on my $25 buy in before losing it, so I was happy. I had a massive hand where I split 2s, resplit, and doubled a 9 against a dealer 4. This took all of my money on the table, so the guy next to me (who was so drunk off of two Coronas that he couldn't add up his cards or figure out what his total was with aces) spotted me $5. Luckily I won, and had a massive $40 payout, and gave him his red back as well as betting a dealer tip for him. I was tipping the dealer very generously, and helped her color up her tokes to a a green. Finally content with the gambling, I went up to the room to find Tinderella asleep. When she woke up she said "you weren't kidding about being a degenerate gambler." I can't say I didn't give her fair warning, so I didn't feel too bad. We had a good time and went to bed. $120 in, $100 out (-$20) +$30 on the trip WEDNESDAY While I was packing, I ripped my Bucee’s cooler bag, so I had to buy a souvenir Las Vegas bag. Started the day off with breakfast at DuPar’s so I could use my $15 voucher. I got a bacon avocado omelette with jack cheese and a blueberry muffin. It was delicious, as were the pancakes that I stole a bite of. Played a little blackjack and I ran $30 up to $50. I had a Groupon at Banger Brewing, so we headed there next. $19 for a flight of 4 beers, two half-pint pours, and a one liter growler to go was a steal. I wasn’t a huge fan of the El Heffe (Jalapeño and pepper beer, although it was exactly as described). I loved the Morning Joe (coffee kolsch) however, and took my pour and growler of that. It tasted just like a frappucino without being overly sweet, and was a very unique taste. We checked out of the Golden Gate and took the Deuce to the Strip. A guy struck up conversation with me, and we talked the whole way about solar energy. Before I got off, we exchanged numbers and he told me that, as far as he was concerned, I'd "aced the interview" and he'd "call within the month with a job offer for me" that will "pay 6 figures." I'm obviously skeptical, but it made for an entertaining ride and it was a nice confidence boost to know that I can ace an interview hammered. Once we got to the Strip we watched the Bellagio fountains and then went to Harrah’s to check in. I paid the extra $7 to upgrade to a strip view, and the jury’s still out on if it was worth it. The room was surprisingly nice, especially after the comped nights at the Golden Gate. We got a half hour in at the pool before it closed (which was long enough for my fair skin to get sunburned, don’t worry), freshened up, and walked to Ra for dinner. We got lost in the mall looking for it, but we finally found it and it was delicious! Tinderella insisted on paying for dinner, and I gladly took her up on it. The sushi was incredible! The specialty rolls on happy hour were a delight, and the Viva Las Vegas roll was my favorite. By the time we finished dinner, it was dark out and surprisingly chilly with the wind. We stopped at H&M where I found a sweater that was 50% off the clearance price, effectively making a $28 sweater $6.49. My frugality thoroughly satisfied, we walked back to the Linq Promenade for some cupcakes and Happy Half Hour on the High Roller. I bought a cinnamon cupcake from the Cupcake ATM. It saved the wait of standing in line, and it was a pretty cool experience. The frosting was delectable, but the cupcake itself was a little dry and left something to be desired. We redeemed a Living Social deal for the High Roller (thanks Tinderella), and were in the car within 5 minutes. As we know by now, I’m a value hunter, and even though I didn’t pay for the ride, I wasn’t going to leave any money on the table. I went in with a goal: 10+ drinks in 30 minutes. I started strong with some Jack and Cokes, and was 3 deep by the time we were a quarter of the way up. I switched to a Jack and club for a palette cleanser, and then downed two more Jack and Cokes by the time we reached the top. Once we got to the top, the car did a shot together which put me at 7. I eased up a bit, nursing another Jack and Coke on the way down (8). When we neared the bottom, I switched to a Bud Light (9). I hid it on the rail and ordered another one (10) for last call, and when the bartender told us that we could only bring one drink off, I took a big gulp and stealthily snuck one in my pocket. I made it off, and felt so accomplished! With my buzz coming on strong, it was time for some gambling. I walked all the way to Hooter’s to sign up for the card and get $15 of match play and $10 free play. I won $12.50 on Boner Poker, which I then lost (plus another $50) on $3 blackjack. The game was so painful I don’t know why I stayed. Past a point, it was like schadenfreude. I kept buying in thinking it would turn around, only to get beat by one or two. The final hand, on which I bet $10, I got a 20 vs a dealer 3. I breathe a sigh of relief, which is intensified when the dealer flips a 10. Guess what comes next: an 8, for a dealer 21. I had a hard time shaking the loss off, not because I lost $50 (I do that all the time), but because it was at Hooter’s. Anywhere else I wouldn’t have minded, but it just felt so dirty. Tinderella had a flight at 5am, so I stayed up with her and walked her down to the cab, and then crashed. $100 in, $0 out (-$100) -$70 on the trip THURSDAY I woke up at 7:45 to pee and felt like absolute death, so I was dreading my 9:15 alarm. I went back to sleep, and miraculously felt fine when I woke up, even beating the alarm by 2 minutes! My stomach didn't feel too great, but after a shower and granola bar I was good to go. I felt like a professional tetris player as I packed my personal item, which had now expanded to include my newly purchased sweater. I checked out and cracked open the Banger growler that I'd put on ice the night before. I can't say that a liter of beer was what my body wanted after a night of heavy drinking, but I'm a man of principle and I refuse to waste beer, so I did what I needed to do. I cracked my Morning Joe open and started walking North on the Strip. A coffee kolsch was close enough to breakfast for me. I got on the Deuce with a good buzz going, and walked to Binion's. I played Boner Poker one last time and was up $10 for the first time all trip, but it quickly went back down to $20, at which point I cashed out and called it even. Having earned 5 points, I spun the wheel and got $5 of free play, which I donated back to Boner Poker. I decided to hit craps hard at the Fremont, buying in for $30. I ran it up to $60 in short order, but then lost it after pressing aggressively. I bought in for $25 more. I was up and down, but finally down to my last $2. I threw it on C and E and was ready to walk away when a 3 hit. The bet stayed on for the next roll (at which point I was tempted to take it off, but I didn’t), and what comes out but a yo? I parlayed my winnings into some place bets and come bets with odds, and ran it up to $81. I colored up and was going to walk with $80, but I decided to throw one more dollar yo on my way out. Guess what hits... another 11! I walked out with $95. My flight home left at 5:47 and it was already 2pm. On the way to GG for my last blackjack buy in of the trip, I walked across the street from the Fremont to do the free spin at 4Queens. I watched in awe as 3 clubs lined up and the 4Queens hit the payline! I got $25 of free play. I decided to press up to 50¢ 9/6 Jacks or Better in the hopes of hitting something decent, or at the very least extracting some of the cash value. Instead, I hit literally nothing in all 10 spins, cementing that it was not to be a VP trip. I was gonna try $5 more of quarters, but the bill got stuck. After an attendant came over and I got it back, I tried again only to get the same error. I took it as a sign and left to the Golden Gate. I bought in for $50 at a table with some fellow Midwesterners (from Wisconsin). I played aggressive since I only had 30 minutes until I should leave for my flight, and I was able to color up to a black. I played my remaining $25 down and walked with $100. Because I'd gambled so late, I missed the WAX and had to take a Lyft to McCarran. It was $30 and I had perfect timing; by the time I got through security, boarding had begun but I didn't have to rush. No stress of missing the flight, and no wasted time not gambling... Well worth the $30. The flight was hotter than the 7th circle of hell, and ironically the warmest I was the whole trip since it was so windy every day. The air was a sweet relief, as was the water I'd filled my growler with. Uneventful flight, minus my failed attempt to eat a melted chocolate bar. I typed up the bulk of this TR and basked in the glory of my first winning trip, and tried to ignore the two-part hangover already setting in. The Vegas hangover is hard enough, so it sure didn't help to feel the Long Islands wearing off... $100 in, $190 out (+$90) +$20 on the trip TOTAL: $520 in, $540 out +$20 on the trip I had an awesome trip, and am very happy to have my first WINNING TRIP even if it was only $20! I got a lot of value out of it, and think that four nights was the perfect duration for Spring Break. I got some good gambling and drinking in, but I’m definitely ready to be home and go back to healthy eating and working out. I don’t have the next trip planned, but I’m hoping to come out later in the summer, perhaps for a shorter duration so I could have a higher daily bankroll. I hope you enjoyed reading my TR! Thanks for taking the time to read through my low-roller account!
Hi!! I'm a 22 yo female, I have the looks and personality and I'm trying to get a strip job. (on the strip, not stripping!) I know it's who you know not what, but I've also been advised several times to just go in in person and talk to someone about getting a job because my in person appearance and vibe are what sells me. this makes total sense and I can see how I would do it in a bar off the strip, but I don't know where to go in the huge casinos!! For instance, all of the new bars and restaurants in SLS are hiring hostesses, cocktail servers, etc., so I want to go there and be like "Hi! I'm looking for a job! smile smile smile" But once I'm inside the casinos I'm fully unaware of where I should go or who I should talk to!! I went to the Hooters hotel even because I was feeling like "hey, what the hell, I'm young and I have nice boobs," but I just wandered around and no one was very helpful when I asked for some direction. Should I just hang out at bars all day talking to the bartenders? Or go up to the front desk and be like "direct me to the nearest hiring agent!!"? I do not knw. Please redditors who know vegas, help a sista out!! *Refer me to a hiring manager somehwere and you may receive a naughty photo in your inbox for compensation ;)
I've meet an enormous amount of pro-athletes...I have nothing bad to say about them. Second hand celebrity stories...tons. J-Lo is a notorious stiff...Ben Afflack, Barkley, Rodman...nothing but great things.
I heard Beyonce was beyond rude...stiffed a cocktail waitress at the Wynn It is common knowledge among dealers that Jordan and Tiger do NOT tip.
I haven't heard anything about Pippen...maybe it is b/c Pippen doesn't play the tables and when I refer to someone as a stiff it is about them not tipping dealers...not necessarily how they treat waiters, waitresses, etc etc.
I dealt to one person who lost 1 million playing craps the night the Giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl...the first time. The most...I've seen a 100k winner...I am mostly in dice, so I never dealt and supervised baccarat, which is the game that gets all of the BIG action...I mean BIG play. People with multi-million credit limits, Royalty, etc etc...skills required by a dealer is simply just one who is talkative, gregarious, outgoing.
My fathers Aunt said DeNiro's character was god awfully ugly and Sharon Stone's character was gorgeous...I had an accounting professor who was on the Gaming commission at the time they put Tony Spilatro (Pesci's character) in the black book.
Card counters are not allowed to play blackjack, but can play the others such as roulette, craps, and bacc. If one becomes too intoxicated, that may be a reason to "back them off" If a player becomes aggressive is another reason, but the previous two reasons, intoxication and aggressiveness are subjective and dependent on the player.
Very easy actually...it is all about how they bet and play...one does not necessarily know how to count to catch a card counter...in order for someone to be profitable at counting, they must have a large "bet spread" for instance a minimum bet of say $25 and a maximum of $500...one indication is if a person is betting: 25, 25, 50, 75, 500...that may be a sign...how one plays is another indication.
Yes and no...I see it from both sides...the advantage for a card counter is actually very small...it brings the advantage to slightly over 1%..so really it's a grind...and not automatic. A positive count for the player is also a positive count for the dealer. There have been times I've dabbled...got a 20 and the dealer pulls a 21.
Yes...but it is a grind. It is not the romantic thing that I think people think it is. In the long run, absolutely a good counter will be profitable...but that counter will have put in a lot of hours and experience a lot of swings.
Yes my proof is blurry and yes it's from the Cosmopolitan...for the comp structure I'll refer you to a co-worker, a host...I'll PM you his info later tonight, early Sunday morning...when you say $1000k a hand...I hope it means $1000 k a hand at least every hand.
No beatings...they do not have to resort to "shady business" 1. all of the games have an advantage built in...most people now a days just come to party and not necessarily to "make money" very few people, I mean very few actually give themselves a fighting chance. They are just there to let loose and party. One practice some of the casinos have picked up which I do not like, but people still play is paying the 12 crap in the field double instead of the traditional triple...and playing blackjacks 6-5 instead of 3-2.
Yes...very few...Hooters and Silverton...If I wasn't getting out of the business, I would attempt to work at Silverton...I've talked to numerous "old timers" and of course goin for your own is far superior. I actually heard a co-worker describe recently working at the Silverton as making "score" as better than sex.
The current structure of "pooling" tips is the reason I went back to school 5 yrs ago and I'm getting out now.
Romas on Spring Mtn...I've eaten at Hot 'n' Juicy Crawfish but was very intoxicated so I do not remember if I liked it or not. Lindo Michoacan on Trop is okay...I used to eat Ricardo's a lot on flamingo and decatur...on the strip...the Wynn and the Cosmopolitan buffet is awesome...Comme Ca is very good, Holsteins has a great beer selection as does Freaken Frogs across from UNLV on Maryland.
An irregular, large bet spread and play. Splitting tens against a bust card with an enormous bet, and nothing but tens and aces show is a great indicator. When someone takes insurance on a dealer's Ace with a bad hand but a lrge bet is another.
The cards at some casinos had a slight pattern that were barely noticeable and only when the cards were turned a certain way. Apparently some players from Asia recognized this, deposited a large amount of money in the casino bank and told the casino they wanted to play baccarat. They also stipulated they would only play if the dealer turned the cards a certain way before exposing the card...once the dealer did this one time through the deck...all of the cards were able to be read from the back...it is very confusing unless someone understands how baccarat is played.
As a supervisor I took a class that taught some techniques and what to look for...what really prevents cheats is the fact that camaras are ubiquitous...and the dealers are taught "game protection" that prevents cheats. For instance in craps always making sure when the person shooting the dice always hit the back wall, the dice leave the shooters hand simultaneously, and both dice are airborne, in addition to the stick person always having his/her eyes on the dice.
That was the same scam I spoke of earlier...with the card backs having a design issue...in my opinion, as long as no devices were used...it was the fault of the casino and the casino should take the hit...they were negligent. IMHO.
One story was when approximately 4 guys were sharing a room...one of the guys got nearly blackout drunk, brought a worker upstairs to the room, he was so drunk, he passed out and the working girl made off with thousands of dollars.
Your welcome...another was when a guy was in with his wife...he picked up a girl at the table when his wife was elsewhere...he attempted to bring the girl to the room...on his way his wife happened to be waiting at their room door...when they got there the working girl kept walking(apparently with payment) that was a 2nd hand story but I definitely believe it.
Lol...one guy had a terrible bite on his bicep...I asked him what happened...he told me he brought a girl upstairs...she began to pleasure him orally...he looked down and she had her hands in his pocket pants which were around his ankles looking for money...he went to grab her...she bit his arm and ran away.
