Now...important to know. There are certain things that you are supposed to do when you win Bingo. Like....tip out the Caller. That's the guy that called the numbers. Oh...and tip out the Runner. The person that was on the floor that ran to your table and called back your winning card for verification. Those are standard rules apparently. lol Don't do it, they'll talk about you!! lol Oh...and if you go to Bingo with people...you are supposed to give them something too. How much? I have no clue. But, something. And, I did of course. Besides...it's a nice thing to do...so why not? One thing I will say though....is don't get suckered into giving over half of your winnings. Seriously! Not unless you've made that arrangement ahead of time. Some people do that. They win and automatically give half to the other person they went with. It's a nice thing to do because either way you are still a winner. But, it's not a rule! lol So...if you are going with people...get the expectations sorted out ahead of time. lol Cause they'll talk about ya if you don't! lol These are the few things that I have picked up from all my Bingo experiences and things I've been told. If I am missing anything...enlighten me please. Most of my Bingo experiences have been from actually working. I used to be a runner at Delta Bingo to help out my old high school that was one of the charities. And, I used to help out the baton club my daughter used to attend that was also a charity at Bingo World, selling the cards. Charities get a cut of something to help out their associations. Great way to help cut costs to parents for clubs and stuff.
Anyways...enough talk about Bingo for now because this could go on if we start getting into why people shouldn't be playing it for money, etc., etc. To me, to each his own. I won't judge. I know for seniors it definitely keeps the mind sharp. It's just sad to see how much money is spent by those that really can't afford it...like my mom. But, it's what she likes to do and I certainly would never try to take that from her. Besides, when I can't find her...I know where she is. hahahaha That's why I take advantage of the opportunity to do something that both her and my auntie like to do...and play with them. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!! lol
And no...i'm not literally calling my mom and auntie birds. lol I'm just trying to be funny. You know the saying. lol Don't act like you don't.
Enjoy the rest of the week everyone!
