Very poor - dealers berating players - Place deserves zero

Local guy in St Pete, played everywhere in Vegas when I lived there, so at first I was pleasantly surprised by the differences between a real poker room and one that was visualized by a company that raced DOGS for 95 years.
Just Visualize the velvet picture of the dogs sitting and playing poker and you will still be disappointed with what you get.
Here is my experience - evaluate what happened to me and see if this is the type of place you want to spend your money. If you have an ounce of self respect, consider taking your wagering a different venue, anywhere but the Derby. I hate to say that, cause I been a patron of there over the decades.
On to the story
I haven't played for more than a year due to Virus, after the Vax I "Felt" safe enough (bad table joke) anyways, it all started on Thursday when I thought I would head out.
Had a decent few hours but ending up losing my stake of $200 - oh well that happens to people all the time I go back early Saturday Morning 2am and stayed about 3 hours with the SAME result. Oh Well, you can loose or win in poker. NOW THE FATEFULL DAY - now keep in mind I am sitting and playing in the same room for the couple of hours for each of the last 3 days. When I sit and play I absently minded like to shuffle SILVER COINS THAT BELONG TO ME, in my hand. It sound better than the Plastic chips ( to me at least) after about 30 minutes the dealer calls the Floor and looks RIGHT AT ME AND SAYS, "ARENT YOU ONLY ALLOWED ONE COIN AT THE TABLE? (referencing card protectors - WHICH I NEVER EVER USE - SILVER COINS ARE FOR MY HANDS. I TOLD THE FLOOR THE COINS IN QUESTION ARE ACTUALLY REAL MONEY AND CAN BE SPENT, AND I AM SHUFFLING THEM IN MY HAND, FLOOR ADVISED NOT TO PUT COINS (real money) on the table an left.
I immediately asked the dealer "which was it , coins on the table or the shuffling sound?" He answered the coins "SOUND ANNOYING"
I said "Yeah, so is your voice, but I don't call Floor every time I hear you speak"
After telling the Floor the ENTIRE STORY, he looked at me and said no one should be abusing the Dealer
WAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH my ears hurt from you shuffling those little silver coins in your hand and booo hooo hoooo I can't make you stop or take you money away from you, so I am gonna call Floor.
