A lady was having a bad day at the roulette tables at a casino in Las Vegas. Luck had definitely not been on her side that day and she was down to her last $50.
Exasperated, she said out loud, “Damn my rotten luck! What in the world should I do now?”
A man, who was standing next to her, trying to calm her down, suggested, “I don’t know… why don’t you play your age?”
The man walked away.
Moments later, his attention was grabbed by a great commotion over at the roulette table.
Thinking maybe that the lady had won, he rushed back to the table and pushed his way through the crowd.
He could see that the lady was lying limp on the floor, with the roulette table operator kneeling over her.
The man was stunned. He asked the roulette table operator, “What happened? Is she all right?”
The operator replied, “I don’t know. She put all her money on 29 and 36 came up. Then she just fainted!”
