Code of Conduct

From the newly posted Code of Conduct at Commerce:

Do not expectorate (spit).

I never expect to rate much.

Re: Code of Conduct

And I've been thinking of checking out the Commerce? They really need this sign?

Re: Code of Conduct

I had a very drunk guy at my table last week chewing and spitting into a coke bottle when the flop came out. He got away with it for hours.

::: groan :::

For real, and I know there are huge lists of this stuff going around online, there used to be a sign over a urinal at Lucky Chances that said, "Do not put gums in."

Re: Code of Conduct

I've never seen anyone expectorate, but I know the customers, and they certainly need the explanation of what expectorating is.

Reminds me of a line from the TV show M.A.S.H. It's 108 degrees and Alan Alda and the other guys are dying, all except Charles, the Boston Brahmin. Alda says, "Charles, don't you sweat?" Charles answers, "In the first place, I do not sweat, I perspire. And in the second place, I do not perspire."

My favorite is the one on the safety card on the airplanes that says if you cannot read this contact the flight attendant.

Re: Code of Conduct

"Do not put gums in" I guess this means your not suppose to put your mouth in the urinal.

I predict that the rules will escalate until they become like the monster list of rules posted at some Parks, especially beach parks. So to be ahead of the game lets start the listing in advance so we will not be taken by suprise. We already have the no spit rule. So here are a few more:

1. Scratching of the genitalia is not allowed

2. No Farting

3. No Belching

4. No Drooling

5. Nose Picking is prohibited

6. Staring at large firm breasts with pert hard nipples is strictly VERBOTEN!!

Re: Code of Conduct

The places I play the players chew. But they don't spit. I don't mind tobacco spitting as much as players who spit pieces of lung into a cup after hacking their chronic bronchitis-someday to be lung cancer-guts out. The rumblings from the depths of 500-600 pounds of guts with the added resonance of the effect of 300 billion cigarettes, all leading to the deposit of a hunk of oozing lung into a pink cup, was enough to put me on tilt. Yes, I tilted even though the player made a concession to his bronchitis-pneumonia-plague by smoking menthols instead of regulars during his affliction and only a pack an hour. At least he was comfortable in dirty sweats and a stained t-shirt and had his shoes off. I don't think he washed his hair, but you couldn't tell because his dirty hat sort of blended in to his skull and there was no clear dividing line between the shades of dirt. Yeah, I played at the Circus-Circus Reno one time. Short session.

Re: Code of Conduct

Re: Code of Conduct.gross

this just about matches spm's toilet post...and it's such a pretty morning

Re: Code of Conduct


Is "spit" really in parenthesis?

Of course, I don't really care fore all that chewing wither, so perhaps the sign could read: "No masticating and expectorating." Hell, let them figure that one out!

Re: Code of Conduct

During an election in Texas back in the 50's, a conservative candidate accused his liberal opponent of being a "known parlimentarian who allowed her children to masticate at the table." She lost.

Re HDPM's preferences, I went to a wellknown poker game in Houston a couple of years ago. I was the only guy who showed up who was younger than 70. I caught the deck and played for 14 hours. All these oldtimers chewed, non smoked. The next day when I woke up I couldn't figure out what was wrong: no head ache and my clothes didn't stink. Finally I figured it out, it was my first smoke-free poker game! God bless those spitters.

Montana folk more considerate

Most put napkins in the bottom of the cup. If it gets knocked over it doesn't stain the table much, easy cleanup.

Re: Code of Conduct

Yeah, it really says spit in parenthesis.

Watched an English movie once, can't remember the name of it, and at the dinner table, while the matron of the family was speaking, someone was chewing on a crunchy food, celery or something. She asked what the noise was, the offender showed her the celery stalk,and she said, "Oh, Ithought perhaps you were masticating a fork." Great line.

Re: Code of Conduct

A line in "Roadhouse"...

There's a sign over the urinal "Please don't eat the big white mint"

Re: Code of Conduct

I went to see my buddies band years ago and figured out what expectorate meant by the bumper sticker on the opening bands drum set. "Do Not Expectorate On Hockaloogey"
