What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - unless you are being observed by resort workers who love revealing on social media the sights they've witnessed.

They're the pool party lifeguards, housekeepers and security officers that holidaymakers don't often notice, but who are only too willing to upload accounts of the good, the bad and the ugly.

From drunken revellers racing wheelchairs down escalators to children being taken to strip clubs, Las Vegas' insiders have revealed on an internet thread the most shocking sights they've seen on the job.

The tales were told when Reddit user stahls94 asked workers to reveal the "craziest sights" they'd seen there.


The question obviously struck a chord with staff and visitors to Vegas as the post received nearly 1,400 responses.

User davidlee8282 wrote: "I had a guy come up to me and tried to sell me used lingerie/thongs that 'strippers' wore. He had a gym bag full of thongs. I just made a 180 and walked the f*** away."

Another entrepreneurial worker, opted for extreme pain to make a quick buck, according to Fivesided_fistagon.

This user wrote: "I don't work in Vegas but I saw a man once on the strip with a sign that said 'kick me in the balls for $10'."

Pageplantzoso had a shock when he saw a man relieving himself in the middle of the road - and not even bothering to hide his genitals from the ongoing traffic.

"After a few seconds, with his other hand, he just waves me by, telling me to proceed," wrote the Redditor.

_Ryman_ joined in the thread with the revelation that there is a guy on the strip that lets you for insult him as much, and as meanly, as you want for just $5. "Sounds pretty sweet," he commented.

Other notable characters witnessed include the unlikely sight of people dressed as Darth Vader, Jack Sparrow, and Captain Morgan eating breakfast together at McDonalds, as seen by Mustard-Tiger.

Not all the posts were humorous, sadly.

One Redditor witnessed a pregnant drunk woman stumbling down the street barefoot while shouting profanities, while a security guard at Caesar's Palace witnessed a lady having a miscarriage in one of the boutique shops.

Sam_Jam_Goose wrote: "An Asian lady probably in her mid thirties wearing a short skirt, had sat down on this perfectly white chair and immediately started to menstruate.

"Once my female guard got there and got all the info it turned out this lady might of had a miscarriage right there on the sales floor. We ended up calling her an ambulance."

Reddit user RenttheJoe saw something shocking, too - adults bringing their toddlers out on the strip at 2am.

And klsi832 was horrified to witness people having sex in hotel hallways.

They wrote: "Like they couldn't use the room because their friends were in there so they just did it, fairly loudly but mostly clothed, in the freaking hallway."

Canoodling couples were also lamented by lifeguard lango92 who said he regularly spotted them getting cosy in the pool.

Another hotel-related horror story was shared by user JackRakan93, who quoted a tale from his significant other's mother.

"She is a housekeeper for one of the fancier hotels on the strip," he wrote on the thread. "She has stories of entering a room and seeing food littered across the room and faeces smeared across the walls. On the bright side, she also finds cocaine-dusted $100 bills that she just washes and pockets."

And things don't get much better in the hotel pools.

One of the lifeguards said: "We would be cleaning up condoms, vomit, alcohol containers, clothing, syringes and all kinds of garbage up after closing every week, it was absolutely disgusting."

This level of filth was confirmed by another worker at one of the strip's popular clubs.

Robertw3524 said he'd seen a hotel swimming pool turn cloudy and black from people using it who hadn't showered.

Drunk people getting drunk and letting off steam are a staple of life in Vegas - but some take it to the extreme, with one user explaining that he'd seen "two drunk guys racing power wheelchairs through the mall at Planet Hollywood".

He add: "They thought it'd be a good idea to try to include the escalators as part of the race track.'

There's seemingly no end to the bad behaviour.

One showgirl on the post said she once got tipped $100 by a man to kiss him.

And RockinJoeSchmo spoke of further desperation, with one male gambler in his 30s running up to him and asking whether they would give cash for his gold wedding ring.

4chinisbetterkek was equally horrified to see a girl vomit in a guy's hands, only for them to continue making out a minute later.

But a happier encounter was had by user Jimeeg, whilst walking down the strip.

"Suddenly the 70-year-old lady walking next to me starts singing the Pokemon theme song out of nowhere start to finish at the top of her lungs. She was so happy when I turned that s*** into a duet," he wrote.

Other posts don't relate to humans but simply to quirky objects, such as the vending machine selling "emergency flats" for $11 for women who've tottered out in high heels that are a little on the painful side.
