Layoff to Jackpot

I just overheard a great quick story in the barbershop this morning. The woman sitting next to me getting her hair cut told the woman cutting her hair that her mom got laid off from Boeing, moved to Reno and got a job in a casino. Casinos pay employees weekly because there's such high turnover. The day the mom got her fist pay check, one week after starting, she asked her boss if she was allowed to gamble in the casino. her boss said no, employees aren't allowed to gamble in the casino, so she took her paycheck across the street to another casino, hit the royal flush on video poker, won $375K, walked back across the street and quit. Her boss said that people sure do turnover pretty quickly, but usually that quickly.
