    Atlantic City 2019: Handpays and Harassment

    I never seem to get around to writing any AC trip reports. My Vegas trips usually lead to a good yarn.

    This time, I finally had something to say about a Borgata Overnighter! And my buddy @Rich99 was promised a new report anyway.

    So, here it goes!

    Took Dad for his 60th Birthday, ended up seeing Jerry Seinfeld and having a great time. Happy to answer any questions!

    I love your trip reports, so funny and entertaining. Taking your dad was priceless and I was thrilled he won. I would sell my soul to spend 1 more hour with dad at slots or OTB. Beautiful memories. Thanks for sharing

    Great Report Grid!! You never disappoint!!
    So glad you were able to spend quality time with your Dad, and he Won!! !
    Trust me on this one Grid, 60 is not old and I've got a feeling when your in your 60's you'll agree with me...
    Grid two things worth mentioning, this 1st one cracked me up, I mean my ribs were hurting LOL!

    "Breakfast is the cheap buffet, again.
    Dad takes a shit immediately following, Again"

    OMG too funny! Why do we need to know that? lol lol lol

    And an abbreviated version of your Wonderful closing words...

    ​"Dad went home a big winner and I went home completely busted.
    Still 100% worth it. I got to spend time alone with my Dad...
    Being one of 5 kids, someone else is always in the picture.
    And for that I'd trade my bankroll Any Day!..."

    Thank You Grid! ..
    Here with You! since 9/29/09

    sounds like awesome times. Wish I could get my Dad to travel up to Michigan once in a while. He would probably just call me a dumbass for blowing $ at the casino though. I'd call him a dumbass back for blowing his $ on booze.

    Thank you for saying so! Dad absolutely loves AC. Vegas has gotten too fancy for him, with the fine dining, clubs, overpriced shops and pool parties. But AC, still $1 hotdogs, cheap trinkets at the shore stores and hardly any hookers to bug us while we are playing LOL.

    Thanks for taking the ride buddy!

    60 is actually pretty old for my clan. I dont know if its due to our large size, I'm 6' 265# and fairly muscular. Dad dwarfs me by 4-5 ". I'm actually the runt of the litter compared to my brothers. Or just a family jinx, but my Dad's dad, his cousins, my Uncles et all mostly croaked in their mid to late 50's. Plus, when you feel like the clock is ticking, you make sure to squueze in time like this.

    As for Pop's irritable bowels, it makes a good punch line for how we ended up in random places. Why was he late coming down in the morning, he was hanging a shit. How did we end up at the Showboat? He had to shit. That section of slots where he got his handpay, we were there so he could, well, you get it!

    We all have our vices! I have a buddy that laughs at me for gambling and wasting my money, as he puffs on an imported cigar he paid $500 a box for LOL

    Your report reminded me so much of a couple gambling trips I got to take with my mom in her "golden years".. She loved every moment of it and the first time playing she won $40 worth of quarters. This was pre TITO days and the coins came tumbling down. She was so excited.. She lost that of course eventually but in her mind she had won!
