It is hard as hell to get someone to leave your home or move out!  Especially when they are unemployed, have been unemployed, and really don't intend on working.  I feel her pain.  I gave a person a place to stay temporarily while they look for a place due to water damage at their previous home.  Well weeks turned into months till finally in a heated argument they tell me " you can't put me out because I have been residing here for 3 months, so the law won't make me leave.  I know if I had hit a jackpot while he was around he would have sued me also.

    Sign your tickets, I don't care if you buy them with your brother, your mother or the local church pastor. I sign all my tickets, even the ones I give as gifts. 

    I may give a ticket as a gift, but I am <snip> sure not stupid enough to let you walk away with millions and I get nothing in the event the ticket turns out to be a winner.

    If you gave me a ticket with your name signed on the back and it won a major jackpot, I would most likely

    let you watch me soak the ticket in lighter fluid and set the ticket on fire.

    As far as I'm concerned you are either giving me a gift or not.

    Bottom line, it would be better if you just stuck to giving greeting cards and gift cards.

        You are too nice.

        Had that been me, they would still be wondering where all of their stuff is.

        I would have had all of the utilities temporarily turned off and stayed with a friend or in a hotel until they left.

        Try living in a place with no electricity, no water, no gas, and everytime you look up all your stuff has been shipped off to goodwill.

        Yes, I will give your stuff away and could care less about you being mad.

        I will ramble through all your stuff and pawn anything of value.

        I will invite friends over and tell them to allow the kids to trash all of your stuff.

        I will adopt a cat and let it use everything you own as a litter box.

        The way I see it, if you are bold enough to tell me I can't put you out, I'm bold enough to be your host from the deepest pit of hades.

         

        And if none of the above works, I will saturate everything you own in........

        BLEACH

        AMMONIA &

        LYE

        Then I will drunk as a skunk and throw your naked azz out in the yard for the police to arrest you for public intoxication and for being naked in public.

        Yes I am psychotic enough to do all of this and more and never spend a minute in jail.  ROFL

          I wonder?  If he bought the winning ticket and she sued him, would the judge rule the same way?

          If it happened in new york state the judge would have giving her half the money and half if his testacials also .Argue

                I suspect that Mr. Browning was screwed over.

                I also suspect that Mr. Browning represented himself in court. Couldn't afford a lawyer.

                I believe him when he said they agreed that if either ever won they would share the winnings.

                I suspect that promise was made during the salad days of the relationship when they were in LUV......

                Keep in mind these two have been living together for 16 years.

                How ironic Ms. Poirier couldn't get Mr. Browning out of her farmhouse for some time, yet she managed to evict him after winning her million dollars.

                I wonder how long she sat on that ticket before cashing it in. I bet she started trying to get rid of Browning when she realized she won a million bucks.

                When did she win the million dollars? Recently or in 2007?

                    A Seminole County, Florida, man who sued his ex-girlfriend for half of her $1 million Florida Lottery winnings went away empty-handed Tuesday, her attorney said.

                    After 1½ days of testimony, Circuit Judge Alan Dickey ruled in favor of defendant Lynn Anne Poirier in what's known as a directed verdict — meaning the plaintiff's case was deemed legally insufficient.

                    Howard Browning, who is unemployed, and Poirier, a Seminole County special-education teacher for more than three decades, had lived together for 16 years, he said. They agreed that if either ever won a lottery, they would share the winnings, he contended. In 2007, he gave her $20 for a ticket, and she won, he argued in court.

                    Poirier disputes that account, said her attorney, Mark Sessums of Lakeland. Poirier bought the ticket herself, never agreed to share any winnings, had been trying to get Browning to leave her Geneva farmhouse for some time and eventually evicted him, Sessums said. She later sold the house.

                    LOL  Good for her, I love this judge, he really knows how to handle a case!

                      It's pretty funny to see yet another "family values" Republican who doesn't believe in staying married to the one person.   Shades of Newtie the loser, Mr. "Free Love."

                      Personally, I would never dream of divorcing my wife.   If I won the lottery, it would a privledge to share everything with that gorgeous woman. 

                      Of course, like the President of the United States, we're stable people.   We just don't talk about family.   We live it.

                      That said, I can see why some people need to dump their spouses.

                      I'm sure though that all your wives couldn't wait to get free.

                      Good for them. 

                      I hope one of them wins the lottery, although from the sounds of it, they're already winners.

                        the only thing worse than joining a lottery pool is buying a lottery ticket and give it to someone as a gift. if you sign it before you gift it you look like a cheap chump. if you don't sign it and it wins, and the recipient doesn't give you a slice (at least 45%) then you will feel like a chump. it is by far the worst gift you could ever give anyone (stocking stuffers or whatever) just give them the cash and let them buy their own ticket if you must.

                        I Agree!, excellent thoughts and ultimate advice, faber98.  Consequently, I think I'm going to cease giving the annual "December stocking stuffer" of lottery tickets and gift cash or small trinket instead. 

                        That way, if my cash-gifted friend/relative/acquaintance chooses to use some or all of the cash I gave them to buy lottery ticket(s), and one or all of those tickets win lottery $$s, then they won't be required to tell me.  Nor will I conjecture that any sudden wealth I hear of OR see coming from their direction was related to my small, prior cash gift.  I will, thus, be able to sleep without painful or uncomfortable thought in regards to that person for the remainder of my days.

                          Hey! The schmuckster is back for more abuse!

                          How ya been, schmuck?

                          Let's see now, what area did you need abuse in this time?

                          Oh! Your exciting life being with the same woman for your whole life!  Well, I can explain that one pretty easy, schmuck. It's all pretty academic. See, I can tell by listening to you that you're just a whining, hand-wringing, boring, liberal schmuck and that tells me pretty much why you've been with one woman all your life. And the reason for that is because like most liberal asswipe men, you tend to look like Allen Colmes. LOL, sorry schmuckster but you know it's the truth. And if you've seen him lately, you know he's not aging very well so best not to go out sniffin' around if you know what I mean, schmuckster. Stay where you're at. Copy? You Allen Colmes types ain't really in very high demand right now if you catch my drift, schmuckster.

                          Now, what else was there?

                          Oh yes! You said you and the little woman were stable people. Well that's good news schmuckster cuz I got a few stalls in the barn that need mucking out if you two wanna make a few bucks. Have your old lady wear her maid's outfit, I get a kick out of that. Oh, and remember to tell her to leave her hair down and I'll show her that "Ride 'em Cowboy" thing I was tellin her about. While you're mucking out the stalls.

                          Now is there anything else I can help you with?

                          Let me know cuz you know I'm here for you, schmuckie.

                          We all are.

                            Sign your tickets, I don't care if you buy them with your brother, your mother or the local church pastor. I sign all my tickets, even the ones I give as gifts. 

                            I may give a ticket as a gift, but I am <snip> sure not stupid enough to let you walk away with millions and I get nothing in the event the ticket turns out to be a winner.

                            Then you should not give tickets as gifts. When you give someone a gift, it is theirs, not yours.  You're buying it for them. Maybe you should warn others, because your kind of thinking can cause violence!

                              the only thing worse than joining a lottery pool is buying a lottery ticket and give it to someone as a gift. if you sign it before you gift it you look like a cheap chump. if you don't sign it and it wins, and the recipient doesn't give you a slice (at least 45%) then you will feel like a chump. it is by far the worst gift you could ever give anyone (stocking stuffers or whatever) just give them the cash and let them buy their own ticket if you must.

                              I Agree! I think the main culprit pushing lottery tickets as gifts I are the lotteries themselves! I admit I am a self-interested person...to a large extent, most people are that way.  I can be happy for someone winning if it was their money and decision to buy winning lottery ticket. However, I would be a bit miffed if, of the hundreds of tickets I have purchased in my lifetime, the one I decided to give away as a gift was THE big jackpot winner.  The person that says otherwise should sell all possessions and report to the nearest place to become a monk, priest or nun. I mean, unless the person is already loaded like Obama, NJEA union boss Giordano, name your career Congressperson, knowing you just gave away a winning ticket would make for awkward relationship if winner did not in some way 'financially thank you' for the gift.

                              But a far better way of hitting the lottery is to become a union boss, congress person, or president of the US. Forget the systems....just learn how to tell people what they want to hear! I dislike politicians as much as I hate lottery pools, so here's to hoping my numbers roll for either Powerball or Mega Millions (hey, I am not choosy...$20 mil is just as good as $190 mil, although the latter would be better and the best of the two).

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
