I wonder if a running joke around the bakery was "who was stupid this week and DID NOT put in money?"

    People love to call lottery players "stupid" but look who is stupid now. The ones who DID NOT play. LOL

      Yep. And how many times did those now filing suit say "Glad I didn't waste my money this week/time" when the pool failed to win anything? Oh, the irony!

        I Agree! The who put in were likely all die hard lottery players who never missed a draw.

              The problem is some of the people joining the pool are thinking by playing infrequently they have as good of a chance of collecting part of a big prize as those playing regularly.   Many pools will cave in and share rather than waiting a year or two to collect their money and wasting much of it on court cases.

              Life is more difficult when you're stupid. How hard is it to write down a set of rules that cover these things and then folow the rules?

                I used to work in a bakery.

                But I got sick of the dough and went on the loaf.

                        Yeah, if any of those "fools" want to trade in their share I will be happy to be a fool on their behalf.

                        the fact that they won (although they haven't received anything yet and lawyers will get a chunk) probably reduces their "fool" status, but anticipation of waiting for their "reduced prize" in 3 or 4 years o r however long it takes is stressful nonethless. no one is a "fool" for winning but for joining one of these in the first place. they overcame astronomical odds but some are probably wondering if they will live long enough to get the money. yes it is worth the frustration of waiting but who knows how long this will be tied up. just play your dumbass tickets yourself and forget about office pools which your workplace owners and managers are probably fuming about the time wasted organizing, collecting, and discussing this idiotic idea that more tickets means more chances and we can all win nonsense. i'd fire anyone who started one of these in my business if i had one.

                            Just because you write a set of rules doesn't mean everyone understands them.  Besides, it would be stupid of persons who didn't follow them to say he understood them if it kept him from suing for a portion of the winnings.
