A very dignified response.  Patriot     I respect that man.

X's 2. The cans I'm referring to are the one's inside the store right next to the counter where people scratch their tickets, or, the one's just outside the exit door where they toss 'em immediately. Though still trash cans, these don't typically contain all the aforementioned articles of disgust.

I wonder, now, why this comment wasn't made about the lady in question who found her $1 MIL ticket in a trash can full of nasty stuffWhat? Nothing was said about how disgusting it was for her to look for valuable tickets in trash cans.No Nod See how interesting things can get when you begin to inspect the technical aspect of such discussions? Get ready 'cause it's coming...

    Suppose the judge now rules its 50/50, wouldn't that set a precident on how to rule on 'found' tickets going forward? 

     

    Wouldn't that open the flood gates of folks stealing other folks winning tickets and later claiming they 'found' them... and are gladly willing to share 50/50?

    The lottery already gave the money to Jones so whatever the court finally rules has nothing to do with any lottery decisions. There are at least four parties involved in the suit so it can't be a 50/50 split.

      Yeah, the only items I sift through are located at lottery locations, which have nothin' but discarded lotto tickets/scratchers. Guess the other guy

      was referring to checking out his own trash.  Green laugh

        If I read the story right, Jones climbed into a trash bin and hopefully was wearing a "hazmat" suit because people have been know to dumb their garbage and trash from their homes in those bins. Some are saying Jones was stupid for telling people she found a "million dollar ticket", as  if dumpster diving is a noble profession.

        If I had to do it maybe, but I sure wouldn't want anybody knowing. Just saying.

          "I wonder, now, why this comment wasn't made about the lady in question who found her $1 MIL ticket in a trash can full of nasty stuff"

          Women are a whole different story.

          There's no accounting for every cat-lady who's got garbage piled six feet high in her house full of cats and how they run their lives.

          I'm talking about men.

          Some men will pick through other people's garbage and some won't.

          I'm one of the ones who won't.

          It's really not that complicated.

            Agreed, but having said that, a million dollar ticket would probably take away some of that indignity???

                    Oh, I understand exactly where YOU'RE coming from, STACK...and have no issues with it at all. My thing is that since the inception of discussing how a couple of us have since found tickets with prizes, IT JUST NOW BECAME ALL NASTY AND DISGUSTING...AS OPPOSED TO BEFORE NOW when the topic was originally posted. Feel me now? I'm just trying to keep it clean so it doesn't get out of hand. 

                    If it's all nasty and disgusting now, as it's been said, it should've been so when this topic first came about. You're okay, buddy. Hey, she found all that money doing what she wanted to do. Seems to me she kicked pride to the curb and it payed off!!! Her only mistake was that she spoke about it.

                        I see what you're tryin' to say ridge but, pride doesn't have a gender. Both men and women were put here with various levels of pride. What one man or woman won't do, another will and it's usually based on needs, desperation, desires, hobby, etc. etc. There's nothing wrong with your level of pride as it's very admirable but, don't NOW knock the idea of goin' through trash for winning tickets. Know what I mean? If my memory serves, along with  re-searching this topic on LP, you said nothing before about this type of thing being so disgusting. 

                        Live and let live.

                          "IT JUST NOW BECAME ALL NASTY AND DISGUSTING...AS OPPOSED TO BEFORE NOW..."

                          It became "all nasty and disgusting" to me when the providers, the breadwinners, the patriarchs of their respective families began revelling about their exploits and endeavors  in groveling around in other people's garbage and waste.

                          This is no recent groundbreaking revelation, you either have pride and dignity as a man or you don't.

                          In my family, men don't grovel around in other people's garbage for any reason.

                          Maybe in your family they do.

                          But more importantly, though you and others like you may kick your pride to the curb for money, I and a lot of others never will.

                          It's just not in our DNA.

                              I see what you're tryin' to say ridge but, pride doesn't have a gender. Both men and women were put here with various levels of pride. What one man or woman won't do, another will and it's usually based on needs, desperation, desires, hobby, etc. etc. There's nothing wrong with your level of pride as it's very admirable but, don't NOW knock the idea of goin' through trash for winning tickets. Know what I mean? If my memory serves, along with  re-searching this topic on LP, you said nothing before about this type of thing being so disgusting. 

                              Live and let live.

                              I can't speak for women any better than you can.

                              And you can't.

                              Or maybe you got one of them "feminine sides" the libs talk about all the time.

                              I know Max knows what I'm talkin' about though.
