I got a call yesterday to work a card party (I am grateful!). I mentioned before that I got work a couple of days ago doing the samething. I learned how to deal Blackjack to make extra money at local parties. Anyway, last night a new company gave me a call to fill in last minute for a party in Los Angeles. I get there 15 minutes early and discovered it was a poker tournament. I do not know how to play poker... which could be a problem since I am supposed to be a professional dealer. Looking back I probably was told it was a poker tournament but because I was so excited to get work I heard blackjack tournament. I got a 5 minute lesson on how to deal poker. I was nervous and I decided to confess to the players at my table that I was a newbie to the game and they were good sports about it. They basically walked me through it. I was going to leave but I am glad I didn't... I chose to laugh at the pickle I was in, afterall I did manifest this situation. I found out later from the owner of the party company that the customer was upset (he did not tell me that though at the party) and the owner had to refund part of the money. The owner went on to tell me that he thought the customer probably wanted a discount anyway and me being a non poker playing dealer helped his case. The owner new this because when he was younger he was always tryng to pull a fast one on people to get a discount for things. Sounds to me like his karma getting back at him, but I was smart enough not to tell him that. ha!ha!
My affirmations have been for a fun job that pays well... maybe I should throw in... that I am qualified to do!
Live and learn!
Hope your week is fun and don't forget to laugh out loud!
