Good deed?

I'm sitting at a video poker machine at Binion's today, waiting for Steve to cash out so we can go to dinner. A little old lady approaches me and asks where the keno machines are.

"They're over on the other side."

"Where? They just told me to come over here."

"Through that archway and to the left."

"Are you sure? They said they were over here." As a matter of fact, I am sure, for reasons best left unsaid.

"Here, I'll show you." I start leading her over, and realize that she's walking very slowly and holding onto the machines as she goes by.

"I'm sorry, I can't see very well." So I offer her my arm and lead her through the casino to the video keno machines.

I felt like a cross between a boy scout and an agent of Satan.
