      I've always heard this: treat your tickets as if they were cash money, but that doesn't mean keep it with money lol

      I think the next time she'll be wiser.. if you want to help others ah! it is good to focus better and guide your giving money through better ways

      Something that surprise me it is how come the same person can get so many prizes?

      Imagination can take you anywhere

         Unless their friends and i know they need help, i always stay out of someones business. I've seen so many <snip>s take kindness for weakness. Especially if their in a liquor store.

          I admire this lady for her charity, however she gave it away and has no case, period. No one stole it from her and if she didn't want to give away that particular ticket, should should have said something right there. My guess is if one of the other people she given tickets to had won, she would be doing the same thing to that person.

          She just cannot accept that fact that in the course of her charity, she gave away a ticket that turned into a winner.

            Here's my thoughts on this.  She obviously has no control over finances.  She hands out $100 like it's a dollar.  She is more then likely working close to being broke and figures this is her opportunity to bring that figure to a higher amount.  If she is so "generous" and has the $$ to hand out like candy, what does she care if he keeps the ticket.  Not to mention the fact she handed a guy that was buying BEER money to put in his gas tank... I think that was an exaggerated story to say the least or maybe she is just that dumb.  Regardless of the amount of money I had in my pocket, if someone was crying to me their gas tank was empty, I'd tell them to put the beer back and put gas in the car.  Personally it appears she likes the attention she has gotten from this!

                I've been in the store a few times where a guy buying lotto tickets handed the person behind them a lotto ticket and said good luck. I've done it my self a couple of times. Listening to this womans story, I'd bet the house that she gave the guy a lotto ticket...And now that it was a winner, she is trying to go after him. Doesn't work that way. Its not a lost or found ticket if its handed to someone as a gift.

                  I bet she has bought lotto tickets for people in that store more than once after her first win.  If I was the guy she handed it to and it came to be a winner, I'd give her $100 bill and tell her to not buy beer with it.  I dislike people who give other people money and tell them how they should spend it. Serious power/ego trip.

                    I agree with the majority of you guys. First, the guy was buying beer and she decides to  hand him a $100 to help him out? This is a fast way to go broke real quick. Second, the way she lost that ticket is by being too careless and doling out money and I consider myself a caring person but not enough to be giving awayt hundred dollar bills. And last, it is her fault for accidently giving away the winning ticket and not his, so I believe the only fair thing to do is to have them split the money. If she purchased the ticket and accidently gave  it away due to be careless and they can prove it then splitting would be the most fair thing to do for eveyone involved.

                    If the guy she supposedly gave the $100 to with the beer in his hands bought $100 dollars worth of Mega Millions tickets and won the jackpot, I'd bet she would be trying to get that winning ticket also.

                      Wow some of you on this thread are cold blooded. If someone gave you a $100 you'd have no problem

                      taking it, doubt you'd refuse it and say "no, you should't give away money" Oh the hypocrisyRoll Eyes

                      She made a mistake, although according to one site it looks like she gave away several tickets.

                      None of you have made a mistake because you were not paying attention? By certain ones on this thread

                      I guess not, how lucky you all are for being so perfect!!

                        An Alabama Waffle house 1999, Edward Seward (often buys tickets in Florida) a regular customer gives out lottery tickets to the waitresses as tips, one ticket is a winner. $10 millionEek

                        Guess what happened? Yep, things got real ugly!! Tonda Dickerson (the lucky waitress) soon finds

                        herself in court. Edward wants some money, the other waitresses want some money too, they said

                        all of them had an agreement that if a ticket was a winner they would split it.

                         

                        She wins her case, the judge says verbal gambling agreements are not legal in Alabama

                        (the state has no lottery). She keeps all of the money and all Edward wanted from Tonda was a new pick up truck. Poor EdNo Nod

                         

                        Tonda is back in court again. Tonda Dickerson vs IRS. Same lawyer that won her the $10 million successfully gets her taxes reduced by 87% (almost $700,000), Tonda got a good lawyer! lol

                         

                        Please!! Please!! Lets not this happen again!!!! Don't give lotto tickets away unless you don't mind

                        the person actually winning!!

                          I just saw part of the video on ABC Nightline and I had to see it again. I found it at Fox News web site and they were discussing it in the video at the Fox News web site. She clearly was giving out lottery tickets. She opened up her purse, she handed two lottery tickets to two different people. The next part of the video shows a man coming back to the store in disbelief. He couldn't believe the ticket the lady gave him turned out to be a winning ticket. They lady is not coming off like a total B but just plain crazy. Please show the video to the lady and she could see for herself.

                              Of course, it would work better for her distressed situation if this lottery ticket she had 'accidentally given away,' had been #s all manually picked by her. 

                              This way she could substantiate her case by showing that, yes she had intentionally given away to a few people lottery tickets, but those were ALL random computer generated tickets.  She never meant to give,  from her other purse section, the one lottery ticket where she had carefully, "picked" all of her #s in order to win from the ticket herself.

                              The article didn't indicate if the winning lottery ticket was a manual or computer generated random #s ticket.  So, maybe we'll learn this key bit of information some later day.
