View Full Version : Pet Peeves at the SC

Every so often, there are little things that occur during a trip to the sc that detract from the whole experience. One of my major peeves is the indifferent dancer who does not appreciate a tip. I'm talking about the dancer who looks through you and does not say thank you or even crack a smile while she picks up the tip off the stage like I pick up my socks at home. Then there's the other customers who decide to go to the club with major B.O. Good God, there's nothing that can kill a buzz like the smell of another man's armpits. And I'm also not a fan of guys chowing down on food in gyno row. I'm there to see the girls like everyone else but I can't help but stare at the guy in front row with a french fry in one hand, a chicken wing in the other and a toothless grin.

1) Doormen 'hustling' you for tips to 'get you the best seat' in clubs which don't have reserved seating. And don't tell me 'you'll take care of me' by getting my favorite girl when I ask. I've tried this and it never works - all he's trying to do is double dip by trying to argue more for a healthy tipout from her. Or, he'll make some lame excuse as to why she's in back and can't come out.

2) DJ's calling out for all the custies to "yell like hell!" - "whoever makes the most noise, get's a free table dance!", etc. Ladies, despite what you may think and what the DJ tells you, most of us try to ignore the DJ banter in the club and he does not sell dances. Guys seeing other guys getting dances sells dances.

3) When you tip a dancer on stage and after her dance, she never comes around to talk to you or ask if you want a dance. Especially if they just go to the back room or bar to sit there staring at the stage. Um, did you want to make money or not?

4) Getting interrupted in a lap dance by the "champagne hostess" wanting to show you the menu. Um, you can approach me AFTER the dance I'm paying for or any other time during the night. This is just slightly less cheesy than the flower girl wanting to "buy your dancer a rose".

5) The cheesy flower girl wanting to "buy your dancer a rose".

6) Other customers and wingmen who leer at your lap dance. Dude, unless you're willing to pitch in and pay for the dance, then be a good wingman/customer and find some stripper who isn't dancing to leer at. After a little more thought, I don't want you pitching in for the right to leer.

7) Dancers who stare at themselves in the mirror while dancing. I understand you need to look at yourself, find your focus, etc. But this should only take so long, not the entire song.

8) Shoe slamming. Often discussed by the strippers. I don't like it, but will accept maybe one or two slams a song - but not 5 times in a row.

I try not get too worked in a strip club; after all, I'm there to relax and enjoy the ladies. That said, these things have detracted from my overall enjoyment:

1) The horrible, gawdawful daytime DJ at BSC named Mark. He could make the word "milk" sounds like it has five syllables. Utterly unintelligible, he is almost a parody of a bad SNL skit about SC deejays. The next sentence he states clearly will be his first. I truly, madly, deeply want to hurt him.

2) Cigar smokers. When the smoking ban hit LA, no one was happier than I. Sadly, Phoenix has yet to enact a similar ban. I can deal with the fact that no matter where I sit in a SC, the smoke always seems to blow on me, but there is no way in fucken hell I'll put with a stogey in my puss (with apologies to GenWar).

3) Perhaps most irksome is the frequent dancer habit of not coming around to dance. On each of my last two visits to Christies in Tempe, I made my way to stage when I found a dancer to my liking and tipped her not a $1 but a $5 and then politely asked her to come down for some dances when she finished. Never saw either dancer hit the floor again, instead they apparently stayed in the back room for literally hours at a time, until it was time to leave. Given that no one else tipped either dancer (and, in general, no one in Phoenix tips at all), one would think that a polite, well dressed and clean middle aged guy alone in a strip club who has expressed a preference for you might make you want to make a mad dash for his table before another dancer finds him. Nope, not in Phoenix.

At BSC, the ladies have a tendency to congregate in one of three areas: the bar behind the bar (dancers only); the dressing room or the VIP area. Often, they will make a beeline for one or all of the above, taking whatever path where they can come into potential contact with as few custys as possible. It is mystifying, but it sure is saving me money lately.

my 1# pet peeve are Gamekillers: strippers or customers who ruin another customer's experience. for example, take the cock-blocking customer. if you can't get mileage on your own. please, don't ruin another customer's good time by trying to watch what mileage he's getting. pay attention to your own LD. strippers, if you're in a rotation. please, don't try to backstab another stripper in the rotation. this is a team sport. the customer is the head coach and you all have your roles to play within the team system. so, telling the head coach, "i can't stand that biatch, tiffany." isn't going to get you higher on the depth chart. quite the opposite, it might drop you lower because the customer doesn't want to hear your sh#t.

my 2# pet peeve are annoying DJ who don't know when to shut the f#ck up. for instance, if i didn't tip tiffany on stage the first time you asked. i'm sure as hell not going to tip her the 22nd time you ask. another thing, why do some of these clowns choose to work on their corny comedy acts in the club? they're not funny.

Especially if they just go to the back room or bar to sit there staring at the stage. Um, did you want to make money or not?that's so common nowadays that it doesn't even show up on my radar. it's one reason why i find the stage pointless. why bother? most of the time, it's a wasted effort. which is why i send the waitress to grab strippers or i do it myself.

Wow, I am amazed at how many of other people's pet peeves don't bug me.

Agrees:
1. Bob L's the indifferent dancer - Why are you even there? I've had dancers leave me standing at the stage with a TJ in my hand and just pass me on buy. I shrug it off but truthfully, it bugs me.
2. AZ's #6 and Punk's agree - I have a rules collary, "Never watch another man's dance." It is not a rule because it has too many exceptions but, in the general sense, I (and those I club with) stick to the peripheral vision. You can watch out of the corner of your eye if you do ALL you can to NOT appear to be looking. There is just no excuse for this behavior.
3. AZ's #7 - A lap dance is an interactive experience. You have to, at least, pretend you are paying attention to what you are doing. Hate me if you want, but if you are getting my cash, you better show some game or you will definitely be a once and done.
4. CP's #2 (thanks for the apologies) - I agree with CP's Cigar Peeve. But what CP should realize is that he is hating the player and not the game. IMHO, the club is to blame. It's like this...the club has a responsibility to manage the smoking in the establishment. If you are going to allow cigar smokers, you need to have the ventilation system to handle it.

You can't permit cigar smoking and then allow the smoke to linger over your customers. My ATF works at a club in MD that bans Cigars for just this reason. However, they still allow cigarettes, so you are left sitting in a cloud of smoke wondering what the point is. Alternatively, My wife and I took in Club Macanudo in Manhattan after the Yankees game yesterday. This is a high end cigar bar and their ventilation is state of the art. She and I can sit at the same table while I smoke an 8x49 Macanudo Prince of Wales and she eats a Ceasar salad with no ill effects. Can't beat that with the world's biggest stick :)

So preach on Brother CP. Just don't hate the players, hate the game.
5. AZ's #3/CP's Non-worker - A minor pet peeve. Like I imagine everyone, I hate seeing that perfect girl across the room and watching her take down the high score on Majongg. Conversely, I benefit from this as well. I can often take a dancer who has an internal inclination to not work that particular evening and turn it into a 5 hour drink and conversation fest. And they leave happy, but shaking their head and wondering how I did that. So, I can't hate on this one TOO much. :)

Disagrees:

1. DJ's. I hate a bad DJ as much as the next guy. However, I am a big fan of a GOOD DJ. A DJ who knows how much to say (or more appropriately, how little), who knows how to choose a good mix of music and vary it enough so don't find yourself feeling like a steretoype and who responds to tips and requests appropriately. A DJ who takes pride in his work and works hard to do well is a treasure. You have all seen them...you just never noticed them because the DJ is so ancillary to your purposes. however, if you want to hate the bad ones, I am right there with you. I just feel you should earn the right to that hate by appreciating the good ones. Good rule of thumb: If you cannot understand what he is saying, he sucks.

2. Doormen. C'mon AZ, don't hate on these guys. They are just yet another unneeded and underappreciated service professional in a world full of em. More often than not, they double as bouncers, which means they are going to see the worst of the club that night, while you, being the gentleman customer that I am sure you are, will be seeing the best. A good "manager" can get you girls, get you waitresses, handle nuisances to your enjoyment, all at your (tipping) behest. And for all the extra hounds out there...the tip you give this guy to look the other way is participation in an industry accepted fiction that will protect this way of life for just a little bit longer. (See Paris' essays on the decline and fall of the modern strip club. Then be afraid. Be Very Afraid.)

3. People selling stuff. clubs differ from town to town. Be careful with ignoring these guys. Often, they are just nuisances, sure. But sometimes, the drink or flower or whatever is club currency. It is a way to pay the girl for her time and efforts. A way to do it without handing her cash, which, in some contexts, can be invaluable.

My Personal ones:
1. Bad Ventilation: See above (Re: agreement with CP)
2. Bad Food. Don't open a kitchen unless your food is, at a minimum, impressive. Eating in a club already has a very much NOT deserved stigma. If your food sux, just close the kitchen.
3. Bad Chairs. Managers. Sit in one of your chairs. Close your eyes. Pretend you are a customer. Does your ass hurt? Invite a girl over. Have her sit on your lap. Is it awkward? painful? If you answered 'yes' at any point, GET NEW CHAIRS!
4. Poor Design. The stage goes in the middle. The Bar to the side. VIP should NOT be visible from the club. The DJ should not be easily visible at all but he should be able to see the whole club. Have a place to sit alone or with a group that is premium seating. Some of us want to stay a while and are willing to pay for nice seats. Have plenty of non-premium seating. Some of us aren't staying and don't want to be shown to a premium seat. Have NO seats in the club face away from the stage. (exception: Bar stools, if you HAVE to, may face the bar which might be away from the stage.) Most of all, think. Sit in every seat and evaluate it. Notice those seats along the path to the VIP that are blocked by the bar and can see anything except the asses of patrons walking by? Get rid of them.
5. Poor Bathroom. Clean. Nice smelling (as much as possible.) Don't have us afraid to touch anything. Skip the troll or, if you must have him, train him to shut up, not look at any biological "business" going on and to keep banter to a minimum when it is not returned.

You know, I realize I could literally go on forever, so I will just stop there.

CP beat me to the punch on a few:


1) The horrible, gawdawful daytime DJ at BSC named Mark. He could make the word "milk" sounds like it has five syllables. Utterly unintelligible, he is almost a parody of a bad SNL skit about SC deejays. The next sentence he states clearly will be his first. I truly, madly, deeply want to hurt him. LMFAO, he is horrible, talk about a dj who can literally put you to sleep.


2) Cigar smokers. When the smoking ban hit LA, no one was happier than I. Sadly, Phoenix has yet to enact a similar ban. I can deal with the fact that no matter where I sit in a SC, the smoke always seems to blow on me, but there is no way in fucken hell I'll put with a stogey in my puss (with apologies to GenWar). Not all hope is lost here, I believe that there is an initiative on the Nov ballot that would ban smoking in all public places statewide (or they are attempting to get signatures to put it on the ballot).


3) Perhaps most irksome is the frequent dancer habit of not coming around to dance. On each of my last two visits to Christies in Tempe, I made my way to stage when I found a dancer to my liking and tipped her not a $1 but a $5 and then politely asked her to come down for some dances when she finished.

Nope, not in Phoenix. This happens to me all the time too.

Often, they will make a beeline for one or all of the above, taking whatever path where they can come into potential contact with as few custys as possible. It is mystifying, but it sure is saving me money lately. That's been my main complaint with that place lately too, it never used to be like that, I haven't been going there as often lately.

I think I've mentioned most of mine in the past, not sure if I've mentioned the Reserved Table Scam though, there are several clubs in town that will put those damn signs on nearly every table, even when the club isn't busy. Nothing more than a lame attempt to squeeze more money out of you. Shouldn't the cover charge cover a place to sit???

Uncomfortable lapdance areas with bad lighting (the kind that shines in your eyes rather than on the dancer) bug me. So do busted bathrooms. And strippers who don't come over after they say they will.

But I guess my biggest pet peeve has to do more with dancers than the clubs themselves: Dancers whose moves are painful to the customers. I've had a dancer support her entire body weight on my arms, then slip and pinch one so badly it bruised, and I've had a 6' 170 lb stripper support herself on my thighs with her knees. Ouch. Unless it's requested, physical pain should not be a part of the experience.

1) Dancer spending more time with other dancers/staff than with the customers. then scream that their night is so slow/not enough green.

2) sleeping in the dressing room. their is one dancer who will if she's not on stage/with a regular she's sleeping in the dressing room.

3) the club massager. This guy is a real peice of work. he pays the cover and sits down doesn't pay a cent to the girls. and gets the massage all the girls. he will come in and cost the girl hundreds of dollars every night

1) The Ass-slap. It’s clichéd, lazy, unimaginative, and not in the least bit sexy. Stop it already and come up with another move.

2) The Dirty Bathroom. For God's sake, clean your toilets, I don't want to walk into a bathroom that looks like something from a Sudanese refugee camp. Dried poo and urine smells tend to kill my boner. I'm not into scat porn!

3) Dancers You're There to Work! Don't leave a paying customer to go sit with your broke-ass friends. They aren't buying dances from you; besides, if they were true friends, they would recognize that you’re there to make money, not party. What makes its worse is when your broke-ass friends leave; you come back to my seat and complain you’re not making money. Arrrrrghhhhhh!!!!

4) Kick Out the Drug Dealers. If I can recognize a drug deal, then why don’t the owners, bouncers, or club managers. Could it be (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) that you’re getting a cut of the action?

Normally i take everything in stride, as the SC is a stress reliever for me. But the biggest peeve for me is a loudmouth, loud playing DJ.

I can't hear shit anyway, so for me to complain about music it is REALLY LOUD! The only lips I want to read are vertical and typically they don't say much.

Most of the aforementioned issues resonate with me, but I'll highlight what truly irritates the shit out of me:

Obnoxious DJs -- These imbeciles think I'm there to see them and listen to their unintelligible drivel at obscene volume. I must say the DJ at my home club is practically silent--all the time, so whomever is blowing him under the console, you have my thanks.

Drink Hustles -- I refuse to partake in this extortionate monument to piss poor management.

Uninterested Dancers -- I realize that, being a fat, balding, toothlessly slobbering PL, I may not be the most appealing customer, but damn it all, if I tip you a $5 at the stage and tell you I'd like to buy some dances, I'm not even asking you to show initiative--just friggin' show up at my table. How friggin' difficult is that? I have saved more money from lazy/ambivalent/bored strippers than any other element of the poor management that normally affects strip clubs.

that's so awesome! I know how you feel (xcept from a differen p.o.v.) they really DO look like a refugee camp, bombs and all!!!!

I hate it when guys are awking @ me but won't come to stage. I don't know if it's cause theyre afraid of me, or what! I really won't bite you, unless you want me to, I swear!:D

I have only one for now but will add more later.

1)When cheapskate custies paw the girls and don't tip for the pleasure of doing so. I saw three jokers next to me at the bar do that to several dancers over the course of my stay.

The dancer would stop and try to drum up business, then when the jokers would have an opportunity, they would get all touchy-feely with the dancer until she had to break away when she realized that they weren't buying dances or sending tips her way.

They even joked about it after one of the girls took off in search of real business. I felt like reaming them out right then and there, but I didn't.

I hate it when a club has 3 or more stages for the girls to dance at. You go up and tip one of them and ask her to come over but then she has 2 more stages to go to. They play 2 songs at each stage and then it takes a few minutes between rotations, etc. By the time the rotation is over, they don't remember where you are at or have found someone else.

LOL! Dude, you would HATE Baby Dolls Dallas or Baby Dolls Ft. Worth...try 5-6 stages (maybe more...it's been a while). You're lucky if you see your girl again for an hour.

1) Toilet trolls, of course. Luckily my home club doesnt have one but the all nude club south of town (which seems to draw a lot of bachelor parties including my sons) has one.

2) Shot girls. Dont get me wrong...I understand they have a job to do. But keerist..when they keep coming back after my repeated "I dont do shots..I only drink beer". And when they plop their tray on your table and take a seat, you feel like you are in some sort of stand off.

3) Club manager who doesnt recognize you after umptee 11 visits and mucho denaro spent. My club has one manager who makes you feel welcome and appreciated and one that doesnt.

4) Bouncers who might as well have on a black uniform complete with swastika armband. I can understand if there is some indication of dancer discomfort or irritation but in my heart I just think they enjoy talking with a German accent "Vhat are you doink?"

5) Stage lights that are too bright. Of course I dont want to mistake a goddess for godzilla but damn only one out of a 100 strippers look perfect in light that could do battle with the sun. Keep in a bit dim so I can pretend like shes perfect and hopefully she wont notice that Im not an Adonis ;)

6) DJ's that apparently are eating or something while announcing. Its pretty bad when Miss D has to ask me if that was her name that was called. Im supposed to be checking her out not listening to the mouthpiece at the back of the club.

7) At my home club, the stage can accomodate 4 dancers if things are busy...I repeat if things are busy. But if there are only a handful of customers and not many dancers, why load up the stage? That cuts into table time which is where most custies make buying decisions. I know I enjoy having my fave at the table with me.

My main pet peeve is the other fucking customers.

1) The cheapass guys who don't come up to the stage but sit real close by so they can watch me spend my hard earned bucks tipping the girl. My last visit that happened several times to me and my fav. Its day shift, the club is pretty empty. I'm the only one at her stage but two other cheapasses are trying to get a show on my dollars. Its fun to get up and change seats just to ruin their view!

2) The assholes who give me dirty looks because the fav is spending all her time with me. Of course most of these guys look like they haven't shaved in a couple days or learned how to properly dress themselves and forgotten what a shower is. I've never had a problem with her making money with other guys while I'm around but if she chooses to stay parked in my lap; well thats her choice.

I'll probably think of more later

After the past two weeks, I absolutely have to say ditto to all of the following...

And to add a few of my own...

Break Songs - These songs certain clubs have where for no discernable reason there is no dancer on stage. I'm not talking about 30 seconds or so, but damned near the entire song. They just destroy the flow of the place.

Promo Merchandise - I've had everything from T-shirts to cheap plastic glasses, to bargain bin porn, to baseball bobblehead dolls peddled at me. Why do club owners think we want this shit? Just sell me the half-price lapdance already.

Dancers trying to create a false sense of demand for their services (particularly when you can see quite obviously that they're full of it) - Ever watch a gal take forever trying to get a "home run" (hour in VIP) with one of her regulars during time that could be better invested getting "base hits" (single dances) to you. In Peoria, I actually pretend that I was leaving to break a gal away from doing this.

Dead seats - Those seats in clubs where you for some reason become invisible to the dancers and sometimes even the waitress. Why can't the non-tipping bums find these?

Frat boy college aged guys / or ghetto punks wearing ball caps with the rim turned to about five o'clock - They all have that same stupid ass haircut, they always show up in groups of three, they have no more than twenty bucks in singles between the three of them, and for some reason they always sit at the stage right in front of me. A good reason that the mininum age to get in should be moved up to 24.

this is a couple that drive me nuts
1) the stupid waitress who knows i sit at the BAR & not at a TABLE still askes if i would like a table everytime i come in. i could see the new ones asking but after 5 years she should have figured it out.
2) the waitresses who askes if you need another beer then lifts up your beer to see how much is left in it & its never a waitress i would get drinks from anyway who does this crap.
3) the whining dancer who thinks i give a shit about her sob story. so your not going to be able to take your 15 kids to the dentist to fix their crooked teeth unless i buy a dance.

Preach on brother.

My #1 pet peeve is when I (being a customer) notice someone spend all their money on the door fee.

It happens. I'm not against that it does. If it's not so obvious, I'm cool. But when he's my dancer's #1 bitch, his expendature is no longer his business and for some nutfucking reason I feel indebted to step up to the dancers loss of income.

#2 Annoying DJs. You don't have to interupt songs although that helps. What I like, is when you can tell which dancer he wants to bang most cause he WONT TAKE HER EYES OFF HER WHEN SHE'S WITH ME.

#3 Ninjas. They're fucking everywhere in the strip club.

#4 Enforced hustle. The dancer that just starts performing for you then demands the tip.

Other than that, I really don't care. Anything that INTERUPTS my good time annoys me. Like if I see it, and can avoid it, I'm good. But when it's thrust into my lap (no pun intendid) then I have a problem.

Bad idea with min age being 24, I'd have to wait 3 months to go back to a club. Oh and I take off the 49er hat before I go in (it's always on straight though at least).

But anyway on to the topic at hand. Thankfully I've never ran into a piss monkey. DJs that repeat the same exact line each set. Song one with xx. Song two with xx. Song three with xx. XX is on the stage next. For $30 dollars you can take xx back to the couch room and all major credit cards are accepted. Listening to that for 30 minutes put me on edge, by the time I left I just wanted to scream (was there for about 5 hours).

Haven't ran into the stand and watch bouncer in the LD area but my first outing to an area club there was one that would walk by take a sec and check in. My local club must have cams somewhere cause no one walks in ever and I'm fine with being watched from a TV just don't stand in the door.

Number 1 and 2 on my list are so close that I don't know which to list first, consider them 1a and 1b.

1a. The fact that I get ignored when I'm at the club even after I left my seat and went up to the stage to tip (not very common around here). Yes I know the pink side would tell me just to say that I want a dance but I'd rather have a girl come and at least talk a second before I get a dance. If I say I want a dance when you are done I just get drug back to the room which is fine but I'd rather spend 30 seconds talking first just to make sure.

1b. The customer(s) that try to get a show off your buck as someone previously mentioned. My last trip I had spent some quality LD time with a girl that blew me away and when it was her turn for a stage set I went and got a good seat. There were like 10 people in the place and one drunk asshat came up behind me as it was getting good and started commenting about the lady dancing (vulgar rude way). It's one thing to say she looks pretty/sexy w/e and keep walking but to stand behind me and just be a rude asshole to a girl that is trying to give me a good show and I'm trying to enjoy pisses me off.

Most of what I don't like has already been mentioned.

Can I just ask... you pay to get in, there should be plenty of beautiful ladies, why oh why do you have to play pool!! If you are not playing with one of these lovley ladies, plese go do something else. Do pooltables exist for these guys Mast hates that spend all their money on the cover? I did at least see a few ladies hustling the players, and doing a good job as well.

Please DJs I do not want hot chips with my lovely lady.... please

Getting a coldie rather than a coke....

This club I go to allows all the dancers to come to your table asking for a dollar.
I think this is fair if and only if your not with another stripper.

one more thing i hate is when whoever i happen to be sitting with gets up to go to the bathroom & one of the "wanna dance" girls comes running over trying to get a quick dance & i tell them i'm already sitting with someone.they always say, well i don't see anyone

Yes, the "circling vulture" girls who stake you out. It really bugs me when I'm finishing off a dance and can see a dancer just waiting to pounce.

And following up on the nasty washroom. What about the out of order urinal or toilet that's been out of order for months?! In my opinion, you can tell the quality of a club in the care the take in cleaning a washroom.

And the last thing for me are dancers who introduce themselves with a handshake. It's not the act of the handshake itself... it's the fact I just saw you shake hands with a guy who was just in the can and didn't wash his hands!

Out of order for months? Try years (at least three by my count anyway).

And until they recently FINALLY got the damn thing operational again, I don't think they once changed the saran wrap they had covering it to keep people from using it. I think some people tried anyways, or at the very least just wizzed on the floor underneath of it.

I know, I know. TMI. :-\

I've been working hard and have some money saved up so after a long time away from SCs I decided to indulge and hit a local club the last two nights. Let me add to the chorus of "bad DJ" peeves.
This clown working the music had a fickle ear for music. At least 5 times in a 2 hour span earlier tonight he started a song, played it for a minute, then cut the music to start up another song. Whichever dancer working the stage at that moment just gave him a "WTF!" look, but it happened more than once. He also couldn't get enough of his voice during a lame promo.
It was called an auction. A chair was placed on stage and the highest bidder would get four lapdances on stage. The club wasn't packed, and the highest bid was $20. It was good from a monetary perspective for the winner, but I thought it sucked because there was no dancer dancing during the DJ's 10 minute yakfest before and during bidding; and I doubt most guys want to be onstage and the attraction for everyone in the club.
The dancer who became my favorite for the night hated it. She told me the dancers make little to no money off these, the cash goes to the house. I'm not sure what exactly happened but earlier in the night before my arrival I was told a busload of men came in for a bachelor party. They were older guys and the dancers were expecting to bank but the whole group stormed out because one man got in an argument with the DJ.
All in all a good night....but the DJ needs pinkslipped.

1) Doormen 'hustling' you for tips to 'get you the best seat' in clubs which don't have reserved seating. And don't tell me 'you'll take care of me' by getting my favorite girl when I ask. I've tried this and it never works - all he's trying to do is double dip by trying to argue more for a healthy tipout from her. Or, he'll make some lame excuse as to why she's in back and can't come out.

2) DJ's calling out for all the custies to "yell like hell!" - "whoever makes the most noise, get's a free table dance!", etc. Ladies, despite what you may think and what the DJ tells you, most of us try to ignore the DJ banter in the club and he does not sell dances. Guys seeing other guys getting dances sells dances.

3) When you tip a dancer on stage and after her dance, she never comes around to talk to you or ask if you want a dance. Especially if they just go to the back room or bar to sit there staring at the stage. Um, did you want to make money or not?

4) Getting interrupted in a lap dance by the "champagne hostess" wanting to show you the menu. Um, you can approach me AFTER the dance I'm paying for or any other time during the night. This is just slightly less cheesy than the flower girl wanting to "buy your dancer a rose".

5) The cheesy flower girl wanting to "buy your dancer a rose".

6) Other customers and wingmen who leer at your lap dance. Dude, unless you're willing to pitch in and pay for the dance, then be a good wingman/customer and find some stripper who isn't dancing to leer at. After a little more thought, I don't want you pitching in for the right to leer.

7) Dancers who stare at themselves in the mirror while dancing. I understand you need to look at yourself, find your focus, etc. But this should only take so long, not the entire song.

8) Shoe slamming. Often discussed by the strippers. I don't like it, but will accept maybe one or two slams a song - but not 5 times in a row.

Baaahahaha!! Reading that gave me HiLiter flashbacks. There's one DJ who truly thinks he's running the show. And another who thinks he IS the show ::) I have never once thought a DJ sold shit for me - they don't. Ever. They just like to say that to get us to tip more ::)

Shoe slamming is just stoopid. I know girls think it gets them attention on stage, but I would bet my very breath it doesn't make them any extra money. Because most guys just think it's stoopid and annoying. Besides, if they have to resort to such idiotic tactics to get attention on stage, then they're clearly doing something wrong!

Mirrors - HL has too many mirrors. I don't look in them much but when I stand in front of a custy on the wall it's kinda hard not to. I understand they are probably there to make the place appear bigger. But I still think they could be minimized or something.

The bouncers there, IMO, are the biggest hustlers of all. And in this context I mean something more like conartists. I think they're used car salesmen who missed their calling :D




My biggest pet peeve would have to be the stupid cattle calls, merchandise dances, etc. All the annoying things that contribute nothing to anyone's clubbing experience, but take plenty of time away. Can't tell yas how many guys have gotten annoyed (and I've had to placate / re-win over) over some club promo bullshit which took me off his lap while he was paying for dances. Ugh. Not only does this piss off the dancers, but it annoys the customers too. Bleh!

It's sad, but true. All too many dancers have lost sight of the actual job title of "ENTERTAINER". That implies both a fun and gracious demeanor, and there are too few of us left out there. I've found that the ones that didn't grow up stereotypically "pretty" are usually the best entertainers; my theory is that they usually have personalities as well as looks, and tend to be more grateful for that slight bit of attention that they were starved for while growing up. Also, older or more experienced entertainers usually know that thanking customers for their tip is akin to greasing the wheels for later on in the shift.

Agreed wholeheartedly. I am one of those who did not grow up stereotypically pretty, and I vowed years ago to not let all of the attention and compliments go to my head. I *still* naturally blush at sincere compliments, and will be 32 in two months.

It's funny how many of the girls think I'm odd for actually sitting and talking for a few minutes. It's earned me quite a few "Wow, it's great that you're sitting here and having a conversation, you've earned my money, let's go dance!" guys. I do use my learned radar for guys who won't spend as well... but it's so rare in my club for a girl to do something other than "wanna dance" that using my personality does me well.

Can think of a few, but one that's been bugging me lately is girls who get too close with you to tell you their life stories. "When I was 6 I..." or "I met my boyfriend when I was 18 and our first date was ______, then on our 5th anniversary we ______". Kid you not, I heard that one a bunch by the same dancer. Kill me now.... Here's my face, insert boobs please. and then Go bye bye. I never understood the whole "friends with a hot stripper" thing.

I also liked the out of order toilet comment. There was one at a previous club I went to 2-3 years ago, I went there not long ago and the same 1 or 2 stalls are STILLLLLLLLLL out of order, wild.

Girls who sit for a long time and kinda kill the game. It's typically a mediocre looking girl who's cool for about 2 minutes then it's like, see ya later. I hardly ever see hot girls do that, unless they think they're your pal.

Really? They are a pain in the ass. They stroll up to your table, interrupt you chatting up a stripper and try to sell you a long stem for $10. Blah. Away with you, you pesky gnat!

Whomever bumped up this thread, thank you. I'm in Dallas and utterly bored on my ass. What's a bored out of towner to do at 10:00 on a Tuesday night when there isn't shit playing at the cineplex? (Saw V? No thank you).

It was tempting, but I've already hit three SC's on this trip and I now know why I'm getting tired of them.

Thanks for talking me out of it. Family Guy is on.
