Just be nice
 Players’ rude behavior

Dear Aunt Bingo,
I volunteer at Bingo for my children’s school. Eighty percent of the people playing Bingo seem to really enjoy being mean to us volunteers who have to do it for financial reasons. They call us names, swear at us and get angry over the littlest things.
I try to let it roll off my back and be nice to them, but it’s getting hard to take their abuse month after month. So my question to you, why are most of the people who play Bingo at my children’s school so mean to the parent volunteers? —Name and address withheld, via email

Dear Reader,
It is sometimes difficult to determine why the atmosphere in one Bingo hall can be so different from another. But players and workers alike will tell you it is true.
I have played Bingo in a hall that is bright and cheery, with players who seem more like family members out for a fun evening together than a group of competitors chasing cash prizes. And less than a mile down the road, I’ve played Bingo at another hall where there are constant arguments by players who complain about everything and are never satisfied. And the funniest thing of all: I see many of the same faces at both halls!
My guess is that it is not, in fact, all the players at your games who are “mean,” but a vocal handful who are misbehaving and being allowed to get away with it. Someone in charge needs to step up and take responsibility for putting an end to the bad behavior.
Troublemakers need to know that there are consequences for causing trouble. Once they see that, they will either back down or go away.
I am reminded of a story I ran in this column a few years ago about a Bingo hall in Illinois that got so out of hand with bad player behavior that the Bingo manager suspended the games, locked the doors for a few months, and told everyone to come back when they could be more civil.
Eventually the games resumed—with a huge improvement in player behavior and worker morale. —Aunt Bingo

Dear Aunt Bingo,
Regarding your article about vacationing and playing Bingo: It is a must!
Several years ago I played Bingo while on vacation in Sandusky, Ohio, and won $13,000 on a progressive pull-tab (plus an additional $30 at Bingo)!
A vacation without Bingo is not an option! —MM, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, via iPhone

Dear MM,
Now that’s what I call a vacation! And I got a chuckle out of the extra $30 win—a nice little bonus to pay for that bottle of wine you uncorked to celebrate the $13K, I’m guessing.
Big win or small, I am a huge fan of vacation Bingo. It gives you a new, fun perspective on Bingo in a different environment with a whole new crowd. Try it! —Aunt Bingo
