9781463440817: Las Vegas' Scammers, Schemers, And Dreamers

Las Vegas' Scammers, Schemers and Dreamers is a behind the scenes, inside look at life in another world: The Casino. What goes on in this world within a world? How do people really act? What does it take to get escorted out and told not to come back? What does it take to have the police or the Gaming Commission called? My very first call from Surveillance came on my second day on the job. I was informed that a customer (for lack of a printable word) pulled out hair from his arm and put it on his eggs. After I was convinced this was not a joke, I became shocked, angry, and curious all at the same time. I couldn't believe someone would do this to get out of paying for their $1.99 Steak & Eggs special. My normal thinking for the past twenty years had been I wonder if we'll have any problems today. A very short time later, it changed to I wonder how many we'll have today. The stories you're about to read couldn't possibly be made up. They were written with a sarcastic and humorous tone. Because if I took them to heart, you would be visiting me at the "home". You'll also read stories about gambling problems, including my own, which are not so funny. That's the reason I need you to buy this book. I just might be able to break even. I can almost guarantee that you too are going to be shocked and amazed at human behavior in a casino. I can also almost guarantee that if you have even the slightest sense of humor, you'll be laughing and enjoying this book. Frank Garibaldi

About the Author:

Frank Garibaldi spent approximately twenty years in the Restaurant/Catering industry in Hollywood. He felt lucky to have worked for a caterer who catered to the biggest names in show business. He received an offer to manage the Food and Beverage Department for a casino in a small gaming town in Nevada. He figured he had seen all there was to see and experience in the food business, especially after having his own restaurant for many years. So, he decided to accept the offer. Plus, Frank had been in a casino once before when he won a weekend trip to Las Vegas. He figured a customer is a customer is a customer. Frank packed up his tilted sense of humor (for lack of a printable word) and his love of laughter and making people laugh. He loaded up his lifelong fascination of people and their behaviors and moved to this small gaming town in Nevada. His first day on the job was like jumping into Lake Michigan from Navy Pier in Chicago any time in January. He was immediately cold-cocked by brand new behaviors from casino customers (the ones who could leave a trail of rude and obnoxious) and a whole new set of rules from his soon to be eaten words, a customer is a customer is a customer. After his second day on the job, he could have gone running out of the front doors with his arms flying in the air while yelling, "Are you freeking kidding me" He could have done that if he didn't find a sick attraction to what would be the most outrageous, unbelievable, and unimaginable customer behavior to come. Frank would say, "I'm not here to work. I'm here for material for my book".
