"Listen to me carefully. I don't give a **** about this job - I can get a job dealing anywhere, so if you ever throw cards at me again, I will jump over this table and beat the ****ing **** out of you." Then pushes the pot, and shuffles up.
Instant tilt buster, and the next hand he mucked by placing the cards across the line. He looked too scared ****less to think of going to the floor. Never saw him throw cards at anyone ever again (just slam them down on the table), and I think he finally realized the guy in the box is a person (funny what little details you miss until your safety is in jeopardy).
I know a lot of you dealers probably don't approve, call it unprofessional or whatever, but you know you've wanted to do it at least once, and as a player, I approve.
I would LOVE to do this to a handful of people. Sometimes, I dream of winning the lottery, and then being able to tell the dbag *******s what I really think of them.
Yeah, I need to learn to let it go.
