Exasperated, she exclaims, “What rotten luck! What in the world should I do now?”
A man standing next to her, trying to calm her down, suggests, “I don’t know… why don’t you play your age?”
The man walks away.
Moments later, his attention is grabbed by a great commotion at the roulette table.
Thinking maybe that the lady had won, he rushes back to the table and pushes his way through the crowd.
The lady is lying limp on the floor, with the roulette table operator kneeling over her.
The man is stunned. He asks, “What happened? Is she all right?”
The operator replies, “I don’t know. She put all her money on 29, and 36 came up. Then she just fainted!”
