I was dealing in
4, the carnival
and there were 7 tables open but only 1 floorman, Eddie, watching them. Normally a floorman only has 3-4 tables to watch so one floorman to 7 tables is incredible. Eddie
had been working as a floorman for 40 years; he is either in his late 60’s or early 70’s with gray hair and an ‘I don’t give a shit’ attitude. Normally when a dealer has
in for $100 or more we are supposed to call it out and the floorman will ok it and mark it down. If it is really busy we will mark it ourselves and then just tell the
floorman later so that way we won’t hold up the game and lose the casino's money. But there are some things we absolutely must get approval on; for instance if I
someone for $300 or more or if a player
in $500 or more. So all night we are completely busy and you could hear all the dealers in the
and Eddie was ignoring everyone. He was standing on the far end of the
talking to the only dealer that had a
I would call out something 5 or 6 times and he would finally begrudgingly come over and act like I was making his job difficult and I shouldn’t be bothering him. This kept on
for the rest of the night and all of the dealers experienced the frustration that I felt when dealing with Eddie.
By the end of the night I had this young couple come to my table. They were a really nice Asian couple who looked like they very well to do. They said they just saw a show and
went to dinner. They wanted to try their hand at 3 card poker and they played one
The husband put $250 on pair plus for himself and $250 for pair plus for his date. This is something I have to get approval on so I spent 5 minutes calling Eddie before he
finally stopped talking and came over. He was pissed but watched the
I dealt the cards and told the couple not to touch it, since they were playing just the pair plus they didn’t have to make any other decision. So I flip over my cards and I
qualify with a Queen high. I turn over the woman's cards slowly, one by one, and the couple loved that. The lady didn’t have anything and lost so I took her $250 and moved
on to the gentleman's cards. I slowly turned them over one by one again and Eddie got so pissed off at me he complained loudly, “Oh, come on and just flip it over already.
I want to go home sometime tonight!” The couple gave him a look as if to say go away
. It was 3:20am and we were going to be off at 4am so this was going to be one of
his final tasks for the night. I was so mad because of the way he acted plus the bullshit I had to deal with all night that by the end I was fuming. So I ignored him and went
much slower than normal just to piss him off. He stomped his foot like an infant having a temper tantrum. The man got a flush and ended up walking away with $1,000. “Finally,”
Eddie said as he stomped away. Like that extra 5 minutes just killed him. I was just happy I could piss him off and not get written up for it.
