At some point in our lives, casinos always get the best of us. One second you’re having a great time sitting at the automatic roulette table while sipping free Heinekens from the cocktail waitress. Next thing you know, you’re broke and begging the pit boss for a buffet comp.
Everyone leaves broke, but some leave more broke than others. Take this guy, for example.
First, Atlantic city brings us the in-casino meth lab, and now comes the fountain thief. I’ll take a wild bet and say that reaching into a fountain to steal coins isn’t the worst thing someone has been caught doing in the city of Boardwalk Empire.
Can you really blame the guy, though? I mean, yes you can, but you have to admit it’s not TOTALLY his fault. If you lost money and then saw some right in front of you — albeit underwater and probably after being wished upon — wouldn’t it cross your mind to take it? It was just sitting there — taunting him — saying, “Take me, shove me in penny slots!” All that was standing between him and his potential salvation was a shallow bit of chlorinated water, and he tossed that H20 aside like it was nothing.
Hey casinos, here’s a novel idea: if you don’t want people stealing money, don’t just leave it there in front of them. If you do, casinogoers are destined to channel their inner Aquaman and do what this fucker was caught on tape doing..
