Barney Vinson's World

13 May 2000

A dealer in a Las Vegas casino approached the pit boss and asked for two weeks off. Since a holiday weekend was approaching, the pit boss turned down his request. The following day the dealer called in sick. His punishment? The pit boss suspended him for two weeks.

Two baccarat dealers were fired for stealing from a Vegas casino. Were the two guilty? We will never know, but it didn't deter the two from making a living. They opened a Mexican restaurant called "Bandito's."

A woman was watching her boyfriend play roulette in a Vegas casino. He handed her a $5 chip and told her to bet it on one of the numbers. "Which number should I pick?" she asked nervously.

"Bet it on your age," he said nonchalantly.

She placed the chip on number 25. The roulette ball landed on number 33 -- and the woman fainted!

A Vegas bartender placed a large stack of napkins on the counter just as one of the hotel vice-presidents walked by. "Do you know how much those napkins cost?" the vice-president said angrily. "Get rid of them right now."

He watched the vice-president walk away. Then he shrugged, and tossed the stack of napkins into the garbage can.
