The following story was posted today in light of the outcome of the Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks game on Monday Night Football:
The article inspired me to do something similar. A few years ago, I bullshitted a blackjack dealer into paying me on a losing hand. I had a six-card hand that totalled twenty-two. When I received the last card, I knew it was twenty-two, but I loudly exclaimed, “Twenty-one!” The dealer continued with the remaining players to my left. When he busted on his own hand, the dealer paid me on a $25 bet. It was a $5o swing, since I should’ve lost. I never said a word, but winked to another player who noticed what happened.
Because of the incredible ethic demonstrated in the linked story, I plan on returning to the casino where the dealer made a mistake. I will then give him back $50.
