US trip part 2: never take your TWese wife to a casino!

i was gonna put this in dating and relationships but since my buddy 914 became a mod over there i don’t wanna give him a hard time so here i am in open forum.

we have several casinos in louisiana. if the people there knew what ‘gambling interests’ really means they probably wouldn’t have allowed it to be legalized. hate to tell them who really runs this particular casino. let me just say they’re from NY and their name starts with a G.
anyway, i took her for a drive and we ended up close to that place so i decided to let her see a real live casino. in the parking lot i made her promise she could only play 1 dollar.
i’ve got a habit of attracting unneccessary attention. it’s the walk, kind of a street smart ralph machio meets steven segal strut kinda thing. i don’t walk like no shitkicker cowboy put it that way. i eye the security on the way in. then i glance up at the cams. 10 minutes into the place and i’ve spotted all the italian guys in the joint. actually they’re eyeing me as i come around the corner. she’s not the only asian in the joint. they’ve got a free bus running from chinatown in houston. and now i know why:
it’s genetic. chinese people cannot control themselves in a casino. they’re degenrate gamblers! after a buck’s worth of pulls on the slots, i said good lets go. then she starts a little argument about how restrictive i am.right there on the floor. more attention. everything she said in the car was forgotten. argued all the way home.
never again. i could hear the devil laughing" gottcha". i decided grandma raised me right. shoulda listened to her voice in my head.

Never tell a Taiwanese woman to walk away from the casino or a table. I am surprise she didn’t chew you out!!

Don’t tell me to stop or lets go when I am on the roll at craps table, I will kill ya. :fume:

A whole dollar??? You LET her gamble a whole dollar?

I liked your other stories about your trip much better. This one makes you look…hmmm…cheap.

I have learnd to accept the “It’s just money” attitude from my TW wife and her family. They gamble like mad fiends at CNY. Who am I to stand in the way of their fun?

The rule for casino gambling is never go in with more than you can afford to lose. But, ONE dollar? sheesh :loco:

Just a momentita, not so fast
I need money, my sweet ass
I say, “Listen I’m a poor man,
My pay is low.
Here’s one last dollar and then we go.”
“One last dollar?”
She say, “I got my pride.
I’m gonna cut your balls, boy.
I’m gonna tan your hide”

i know JD, but i had to see if she could be trusted. self control. she has none whatsoever. her dad’s in the red like a few million for mah jiang! that’s why i’m scared.

And how do you do in Thailand, alone, after a few too many brews and old wild willie down below is automatically responding to the local beauties?

You’d stay out of the those situations, right? So why PUT the wife into a situation like that? lol

Now, wouldn’t it be intersting if she put you drunk among the beauties…hmmm :slight_smile:

(please read above in jest.)

the Taiwanese are compulsive gamblers… I have to go to a bike show every year in Vegas… there’s obviously a strong Taiwanese contingent that represents the bike industry here in TW… the show venue is usually the convention halls at The Venetian arguably the nicest casino on the strip… you should see the mad rush for the floor at exactly 5:01pm every day… :noway:

You want to see compulsive at it’s best/worst: Swing by any of the casinos in Macau on a weekend.

Maybe you guys got the wrong wife. My wife has no interest in gambling
whatsoever. I take her into the casino and she’s bored out of her mind. She couldn’t gamble even if I tried to force it on her. Of course she did gamble a little when she married me.

:wink:

I took my wife to a casino. She gambled all night. Finally at 6am I said, “Honey, let’s go to bed.”
She said, “I don’t like the odds.”

My wife is not a gambler but she does let me go to Vegas for a couple of days whenever we go home.

Today is Friday and that means tomorrow I get my allowance. I have 77NT to get me through the day. I need smokes and some gas. I sure hope Mr/Miss Gas Pumper is skilled enough to cut off the gas flow right at 27NT or I’m either washing dishes at the gas station to pay for my gas or I have to grovel on the ground looking for change.

i shoulda never brought her there. you’re right! you know, images went thru my mind of her becoming whore in a hick town to pay for the slots. a taiwanese in a casino? never again. like gasoline on a fire. doesn’t make sense.

Taiwanese???

You should see Chinese. I was once a guide for some Chinese officials, who were not supposed to gamble… Oh well, when we got to Odense in Denmark, the travel agency had put us up in the only hotel with a casino attached…

The Chinese guys, who were not supposed to gamble took to the roulette with gusto.

And… Talk about an ethnic place more profound than Chinatown… All the employees were caucasians… Apart from me and another guy, all the guests were Chinese.

yeah, but you still don’t know. what’s a dollar? more likely to aggravate her into wanting to gamble than anything. try a hundred, or whatever is something you can afford to lose but will still hurt a bit. then see what happens after you lose it, you should know more then.

This reminds of me when they had one of the first 4th of July celebration fairs for US citizens and guests at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. The Chinese guests kept hogging all the games at the booths and were so noisy and excited over the possibility of winning cheap trinkets most people would throw away when they got home, that the next year they seriously tightened up on allowing PRC guests in.

tempo’s right. i shoulda made it 10 bucks and that’s it. 10 bucks would have been enough. the thing is an agreement is an agreement. she should have asked for 10 in the car. i know she didn’t know how exciting it would be, but that’s the point. control.
damn casinos are the biggest waste of life and money there ever was.people can go play the slots but they’ll never buy Money Magazine to learn how to play stocks.
i have always felt gambling is a mockery of the life we’ve been given. the risks we take in life are grand and meaningful. the risks on the table are making fun of the sanctity of the game of life. it’s mockery and i refuse to ever set foot in a casino again, even for their buffet.

Ran,

What do you think of state-sponsored lotteries?

lotteries. that’s a tough one. i mean some people even say your investment portfolio should have a ticket a week.the luck factor. if you win, you’ve cut your time to get wealthy substantially. but then you have to put it in the right places or it’ll all be gone. i’ve heard like 90% of lotto winners are broke within a year. they go to a lump sum lawyer, get the whole thing and it’s gone in a year.
i like the store receipt method. i didn’t actively buy a lotto ticket per say yet have a chance to win. real state lottos also can be rigged. you’d be suprised what wiseguys have their fingers in these days.
