That was a satirical joke,    Jester Laugh     not meant to be taken at all serious Cletu$. Do you even have any sense of humor remaining in that clouded

area of your enraged head? Try taking in a few late night sitcoms occasionally.....maybe you'll begin to understand that life is far to short

to be so cynically serious and pissed off all the time. Not good for your health either.  No Nod

 

Now do me a favor...and start laughing.   LOL    Yes Nod     Smiley  Or at least try cracking a smile my friend.   Lep

When most people are making a satirical remark on the internet they put a ~;) or someting else behind their comment so that people will know that they are not serious.

And I'm not your friend.

I do smile quite a bit,but the crap you put out is nothing to smile about.

    Still missing some of the pieces of the puzzle to this story.....Where was this ticket and why wasn't it checked for a year ?  Where was Mr Jackson  and what was he doing as to not checking the ticket ???  Was he medically ill, out of the country, incarcerated ?.....Whatever the reason, his story should be a reminder to all that play.....CHECK YOUR TICKETS WITHIN 24 OF A DRAWING, YOU MIGHT BE A WINNER.

      Oh I see now Cletu$, You cannot "spot" a little humor when you see it. You need to have some heads up, or visual aids to understand such concepts.

      No problem. In future postings where humor is likely to appear, I will go out of my way (Just for you), to let it be known that "The Following Material

      Will Be Considered Comical Or Satirical In Nature"     ROFL


      The "friend" term was just a respectful professional courtesy in referring to another LP'er.   Patriot


      I'm happy to hear that you "smile" so much. It certainly comes across well in all your postings.      Crying


      "Crap" is all relative my friend, some crap is well received, other "Crap" is quickly forgotten about, much like most of your postings.     What?

        I'd be in that lottery office next business day. I guess like with all area's in life, there are those % that are not mentally/emotionally equipped to

        accept and follow through in a responsible manner. With all the warnings, disclaimers, expiration dates....it's still not enough for some folks.

          As a child my folks use to say 'ding ding' whenever they made a 'thinly-veiled' attempt at humor.  I got really sick of hearing 'ding ding'.  :)  Now in my dotage I realize that they were not ever funny and therefore had to say 'ding ding' to alert themselves and others of their feeble attempts. While my kids and g'kids think that they are hysterical.  It must be a recessive trait that skipped my generation.

            Coming from an Irish background, humor has always been a common thread in our lives. (Love Conan!!)  Lep

             

            For any real humor to flourish, there absolutely needs to be an element of complete spontaneity. If someone is requiring a mechanical/visual

            aid before being able to recognize or respond to this beautiful gems..... then what's the use???  No Pity!

                      What I dont' understand and obviously missed something.. why did he wait so long to cash the ticket.. after all he had a year.. 365 days.  If it were me.. short of seeking my lawyers advice I think I would have been on it ASAP!!!

                          Like someone else said.. possibly incarcerated???   Only reason I can think of why he couldn't get to lottery office! Unless he was in a coma..and if either of those.. I would think would be "extenuating" circumstances.. you'd think the state would make an exception?

                            The question LottoMomma, is how may exceptions do you allow? After the first green light, you then open a floodgate for any and all excuses.   Scared

                              Oh, I hear ya talking.. just a shame the guy snoozed for whatever reason and he is having diffculty with the fact "he dropped the ball"..  and has to live with the reality.  Just sad is all.  I totally understand the state's position..the rule is the rule.. if you're going to play the game you agree to live by the rules.. and if you let one get their finger under the manhole cover... you and I both know what happens then! 

                              Like they say... word to the wise.. CHECK THOSE TICKETS LIKE ASAP! 

                              I know when I play I am on those results like 11:01! LOL  I want to know if I won or lost....like today!   LOL
