Re: Tipping CONTAINMENT thread.

I'm guessing in random home cash games you're playing with people who you are friendly with on a social basis and/or don't expect too much because they're not paying for your services.

Do you know there is a specific way to bag the order? As specific way you are supposed to pass the order out (including a specific way to hand the bag(s) to the customer), even a specific way to fold the top of the bag(s). Do you know the proper amount of ice to put in the cups (unless a specific other request.) A specific way to make the change? A specific set of conditions on when and how to park a customer. Etc. Note I will admit that today's McD DT personnel probably don't know and definitely don't follow these procedures. But they are still there.

I am certain I don't know everything about dealing. But I suspect from reading here and seeing many thousands and thousands of hands, that I probably know more about dealing then you do about McD DT's. I don't have the dexterity to hand shuffle well; but that is a 'medical' issue not a knowledge issue. I physically can't hit a 90 mph slider either, never could And I can no longer consistently (if at all) hit a 300+ yard drive (same medical issue). But with an auto shuffler, I believe I would come closer to properly managing a poker table than you would a busy McD DT, at least initially. But it would be evident in both cases we were beginners.
I could get by with doing most of those things incorrectly in the DT, but you aren't getting by at a poker table doing things wrong. OK, so you might get away with turning the deck upside down or not shuffling correctly, but that's about it. At the DT as long as I push the right buttons, their order should be correct and the total/change will be correct. What else really matters? We were talking about being good enough to get by, not be mistake free.

Suit,

I do find it kinda amusing that casino employees are doing exactly the same re: fast food employees that they hate poker players doing re: casino jobs.
