 rick, in answer to #1.   2+&-10=    -8    +/-  0.3 on the rectal scale.

                               #2    i think the store clerk had something to do with this.  the scam continues...!

    the moral of the story is

    CHECK YOUR OWN TICKETS. and if you dont.

    DONT COMPLAIN TO US ABOUT IT IF ITS A WINNER

    They shouldve noticed they won $100,000 whether the clerk told them so or not. plus she did NOT scan it because it would have said they won. she must have just looked at it. either way they shouldve noticed that they won without her help. when i buy a scratcher i dont ask a clerk if i won $2, and i dont ask the clerk to come in the bathroom and wipe my butt. these folks need to grow up and shut up.

    (i also believe the clerk is involved in a scam, trust me, i used to work at a gas station and ANYONE who works at a gas station usually gets into the scratch off scene for a little while, its an addiction, i can at least almost guarantee all gas station workers can tell if its a winner. especially a $100,000 winner.

    I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

    And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

        Hey guys, come on....the lottery officials need to make it clear, if a person throws away a ticket, that ticket is fair game to anyone who wants to dig through the trash to retreive it. SIGN ALL TICKETS BOUGHT, THEN YOU HAVE THE PROOF IT BELONGS TO YOU. OTHERWISE, FINDERS KEEPERS, LOSERS WEEPER.

          It should be clear to anyone with any common sense who finds or even buys a winning lottery ticket, never say anything, even as a joke, that would give anyone the idea that they deserve your winnings.  Statements like "I found the ticket that someone threw away" or  "I plan to give my winnings to the needy" and etc. just invite trouble.

            I totally agree.  If you find a winner, quietly put in your pocket, don't say a word, and look it over at home. Don't even tell your friends you found it - who needs to know? Wait 3 weeks or 3 months and cash it in at some other store in some other town.

                yep mums the word, Just like that one guy who won, and wouldn't even tell the lottery people why he had held on to the ticket for so long, he didn't let them say anything about him.....
