This is the only social interaction a lot of these people have available to them. They've already stopped getting the calls to hang out YEARS ago, whether they're *******s or just sadly awkward. I'm glad we can be there for these people. Remember, they need us

I love the guy that asks how much when he has nowhere near that amount left in front of him. I never realized how clueless it was possible to be until I started working in this industry.

Once had a player who was facing a bet that clearly had him covered by at least 7x. He wanted a count.

I pointed to the chips in his hand and said, "That much."

I guess his short stack had him feeling impotent and embarrassed, because he decided to wield what little power he still had: to snap his fingers and bark orders at the dealer. "I need a count," he said, and sat back in his chair, arms folded, to await the results of this endeavor.

I was having none of it. "Ok," I offered, "hand me your chips, and I'll count them for you."

(To be clear: there was no tactical reason to ask, no other players involved in the hand, and this guy was a Known Jerk.)

"He has you covered" or "more than you" would work for me here. I've said both of those things but I was not dealing with a jerk, I was being a little glib for expediency and a little humor, maybe. Usually worked since I don't recall offending anyone and usually go a chuckle or two.

I tried both of those first, of course.

In that situation it's a lead pipe cinch that at least 3 other players will respond "more than you" "he has you covered" before I can get a word in.

Though I too have used "that much" in the past. It's usually good for a chuckle.
