Ladies and Slot Machines

I've been trying to keep myself awake at work last night when I heard a man's loud voice from the Casino floor. It was around 3:00 o'clock in the morning. "Hey, did you  still remember me?!" while pointing himself. I did not see who he had been talking to but I had a hint that he was talking to his wife or maybe girlfriend. When I peeked, I thought I was right. But the lady  ignored him. She continued playing, anyway. The man gestured to me like, "Darn it!", referring to his wife while walking out. I remember he was the man who have been in the parking lot in front of the glass door earlier playing with his dog while waiting. After more or less 45 minutes, he came back in and talk to his wife again. Then walked out again. It was almost 5:00 in the morning when he left, without his wife. Poor guy.

I have observed that mostly of the players during my shift are women. Yep, mostly are women. I am wondering if it's the same on both day and swing shifts. I am also wondering on the possible factors why women tend to gamble more than men based on my observation.

Based on my personal experience, it somehow true, lol! I am only kidding. I only get to play once in a Blue Moon for fun. My Filipina friend told me to watch out because according to her she had the same reason when she began gambling, "just for fun", but she's been addicted already after she won $6,000.00 twice in one of the Casinos in Las Vegas. But I doubt it will happen to me, as the saying goes, "Different folks different stroke."

When I left around 7:00am, the lady was still there trying her luck over and over again .Tsk, tsk, tsk!
