Hello all! Time for a story about idiots and fun co-workers!
So, in my state, we are having a no-smoking in public places/businesses law enacted on July 1st. However, my bingo organization has decided to jump the gun by a month, starting our smoking ban on June 1st.
Needless to say, the smokers (which are the majority of our custys) were unhappy with this.
"You should just tell me to go home!" - Said by one the week before our ban started.
About the only thing we could say was "OK!"."If I had known this was non-smoking, I'd a stayed home!" - Said by a few players on June 1st.
The second quote really got me. See, we put signs up everywhere for this. So many signs that I actually got told by a building maintenance guy that we put up too many signs.
We made announcements when we had bingo sessions for the past two weeks.
We even had other bingos in the same hall make announcements for us. It's not like we kept this secret. Also, they said this stuff BEFORE they bought their bingo sheets. They could have just gone home.
To top it off, the general crankiness of the players was up by about 3 notches.
One player (who we'll call Player A) complained to me that I needed to "Tell her *points* that she needs to stop telling her *nods her head* to shut the fuck up blah blah yak."
I get my security guard over there and tell him that Player A is having a problem with some other player and he needs to figure it out. This is after he's done tossing a drunk out. Fun night.At least I didn't smell like an ashtray at the end of the night.
P.S. I want to have a poll. If I can get another story up here, do you want to hear about a nasty-ass cheater we caught a few years back or about a couple of our regulars that are... interesting characters?
