Odd Job

A few weeks back, my husband and I were just talking. We got to the subject of his (long-lost) friends. He says it’s been a while since he saw them. But he did get to talk to two of his younger ka-berks.

I asked if they have found gainful employment. Hub said yes, gainful but shady.

How so?

They are being paid to gamble.


These two, who were billiard hustlers, are now professional gamblers!


A casino owner hired them to gamble in the casino all day. They are paid Php500 per day. All their winnings, if any, are theirs.


I really don’t see the point. I’m pretty sure these two are being used for some kind of tactic being employed by the casino. But I don’t quite get it.

Really odd, eh?

  1. Wenchie, ako nga din nagulat. I know these two guys have a penchant for gambling. But , whoa, being paid to gamble is a whole new level! To the highest level na! hehe

    Julie! I don’t know too what the owner gets in return. Pang attract kaya ng tao?

  2. Siguro their presence would create more traffic for the casino. I know restaurant owners that “plant” customers for show in their early, promotional stages. It figures naman di ba. Pero masarap na trabaho yanl I know of friends who would love a crack at a job like that.
