Bad dealers in Las Vegas

I forgot also to post about the Dealer from Hell we had for a while at our table. Most dealers are great -- they feign interest in where you're from, but they deal reliably and count reliably too.

This one dealer we had for a short time had the feigning part down right, but she couldn't count. She would tell you how many points were showing and often be off by one. Also, 3 times in the 20 minutes or so that she was with us, she misread the outcome, once in our favor and twice against.

Both of the times she misread against us, we caught her, but one of those times she double paid us.

That she spent a short time with us was a clue that the "eye in the sky" caught all of this and decided she should go, but we saw her later at another table in the house.
