"Deal"ing with reality

Just a lil slice of life from a casino dealer's perspective.

I grew up in a small town, and live in small town now. Like to think I have more than a small town mind, but I doubt it.

There are just some things no sane man should have to face. That's why I'm glad I lost my sanity a long time ago.

It was an unusually quiet night at the hotel and I was doing a simple security walk-around between mounds of paper work. During my check I noticed someone in the outside portion of the pool. Since lightining had been spotted earlier (10 mins ago by me) I notified the gentleman that the pool was closed. That and the fact the pool had been closed over 3 hours ago. The only way into the pool was to climb the fence. Or use a security key like I had. I entered the pool area to escort the gentleman out and noticed two other people had slipped into the spa in the corner.Even though the odds were 3 to 1 against me, I judged the blood-alchohol levels of the others gave me the advantage.

Until I saw that one of the people was a rather attractive young woman. Naked. Dripping wet. Naked. Bounding toward me. Naked. Asking me to let them swim a little bit longer. Naked. Her two male friends had shorts on, but apparently she decided to let it all hang out.

Kicking them out of the pool was one of the hardest things for me to do. Especially after she invited me to join her in the hot tub. Most especially after she hugged me. But the view of her from behind as she walked over to the towel rack was worth it. Almost.
