The Problem with People

The problem with people is that, well, they are people. I don't remember where this was, but recently, I was in a conversation about how bad people in a particular profession were. I believe it was customer service of some sort. I've dealt with horrible customer service before, from the cable companies that say that there is an "outage in your area" which is code for "I don't give a fuck" to the medical care providers who will not provide you with your own records without making you jump through more hoops than a showdog.

The thing is, its not just customer service. It's the police, too. The institution of the Police is a great thing. The individuals, though, might not be. Doctors are the same. The Russian doctor from downtown treated me like a number. My new doctor treats me as a person.

My point is this: People are lazy, and spiteful, and meanspirited and selfish. Not every person is like this all of the time, but some are. And others are like this some of the time. So, when you run across this person, as a customer, or at a poker table, or as a blogger/reader, just remember that this is what we are. We are not ALL like this, but we all have this in us. And don't be too surprised that you come across it, either. That's life. Just try not to take it to hard.

On an entirely unrelated note, I have two questions for you.

#1) Does anyone know if Mohegan Sun has a poker room, or is it still closed (since about 2003)?

#2) Would anyone (including usual sponsors VegasPokerPro and PokerOnaMac.com) be interested in putting up $100 extra into DADI 8? Why? Because if all goes well, the event shall be the Rebuy in July, a $5 rebuy NLHE event. The one problem is that the minimum buyin at Stars is $10 UNLESS the organizer (i.e., us) puts up $100 in added money. Why is this the case? I have no idea. So, if someone wants to put up the $100, you'll get center advertising space on the banner and be a hero to millions, much like Gandhi. Now that was one unselfish, unspiteful person.

lol. Yeah, sure I'll add $100 to save the tournament and show my heroism. Not $100 + an iPod shuffle though :)
Send me an email.

Geesh, you've only known me a few weeks and you already gotta great read on me. OOOOOh, I got enough $ on Stars to play the rebuy now. FT, no. I don't like re-buys, but I'm in. That's if I don't donk off my BR by that time. Hehe. Thanks, rider!

Very true... and, Mogehan Sun: I was there last year, so it should be open, but they don't have poker -- even if they did, Foxwoods would be better anyway, since they just finished renovations on their poker room.

The only problem I had at Foxwoods was that the buy in for 1-2 NL was $100 max, with loose preflop raises of $10.

That's a no on Mohegan Sun

As stated earlier... no poker at Mohegan. I literally just came back from Foxwoods. It pretty much sucked. $100 max buyin for 1/2nl and they charge time ($5 per 1/2 hour). not conducive for a TAG player.
