Surrender 5 versus dealer 8

Last night a lady next to me surrendered 3-2 versus dealer 8 at a $50 table. I’ve never seen a more boneheaded play. I couldn’t wrap my head around why. She then left a marker to come back later. The dealer told me she does stuff like that often.

She would bounce between tables, play badly, and eventually left. I was stuck on that stupid surrender for a while and then it dawned on me that she was playing both side bets (dealer “in-between” and dealer blackjack progressive), and when she didn’t hit either bet she couldn’t be bothered to finish her “regular” hand of blackjack. Insanity.
