Nice to see some honesty, He may have tempted but good prevailed.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    It was good of this careful man to notify of the mis-delivery!

    I wonder why if this misdelivered box had the store's correct address on it that this man didn't simply first contact the store manager and arrange their pick-up at his home?

      He had mentioned the seal on the box looked loose and possibly tampered with.

       

      Probably he wanted to return to the Lottery Commission in case items were missing, didn't want to be blamed by the management of the store

      they were addressed to of theft. IMHO.

          The tickets were worthless to him. He could have just thrown them in the trash and saved himself the trouble of returning them?

            He wasn't aware they were worthless, until after talking to the Tennessee Lottery.

            I think most average people would have assumed these tickets were "live" and ready to be scratched  and won off.

            Out of 1000 people, wonder how many would have reacted the same way this gentleman did. What?

              In that case, he could have put on a baseball cap and cashed as many as he could before they were reported missing.

                They had to be scanned in first by the purchasing store to be valid.

                Although the baseball cap (Red Sox), would have looked very good on him.

                    "So they set that down there and being as heavy as it was, it went down in there," according to West.

                    Is this how they talk in Tennessee???

                    Well the box was rernt, leastways I can tell.

                        But has conscience would have probably bothered him.

                          I would have done the same thing. Tepmtation would make me hesitate, but prison time would fix that.

                              I wonder what he would of done if that mis-delivered box was marked "Gamestop".
