What does/did everyone do for work?

    I am a croupier.

    Sorry I just like to see the look on someone's face when I say that.
    I deal poker at the largest casino and poker room in NM.
    I am trained to deal roulette, blackjack, and most of the "carnival" games.
    I was recruited to the poker room 14 years ago, when it was booming.
    We have 15 tables, and some nights we could fill 30 or more.
    The hard part of my job is not dealing the game, but dealing with the geniuses who play the game. 
    Tournament drama queens are the worst. Hoodies, sunglasses, I-pods, waiting until the last moment to look at their hand, looking around to see if the camera is on them, then folding anyway. Tourney players are famous for not tipping also. 
    My customers can range from college students gambling with their lunch money, to millionaire trust fund babies and everyone in between.
    The biggest jackpot I have dealt was just over 86000.
    4 jacks were beaten by 4 queens, that was a memorable day!
    I don't play poker because I hear more than enough of the same comments all day, and really need to get away from people when I am off the clock.

    Friends don't let good friends smoke cheap cigars.

    I'm slightly jealous that  you got to go out on a fishing boat like that.

    When your family is in that business, you don't get an option. LOL!
    Although, if my step dad had lived longer, my boys would have learned what real work was and I regret that they did not get that chance.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.
