Crandall and her daughter do not come across as poor to me. They strike me as very middle class at least. I hope if the real and only winner wants to make some donations, there are people who don't have a bed to sleep in and are hungry and there are many charities that work to help such people.

J'aime La France.

    Could it be her Fate that she won? Can it be her Destiny!

      Nobody is destined to win a lottery. Nobody deserves to win a lottery. It's just pure coincidence. Winning a lottery could happen to anybody.

        A winner usually has to take the time and make an effort to buy a ticket so it's not pure coincidence unless someone else does that for them.

          I looked up Coincidence: Any given set of coincidences may just be a form of synchronicity, that being the experience of events which are causally unrelated, and yet their occurring together carries meaning to the person observing the events.

            Of course they need to buy a ticket. I never implied that they don't have to.

              Meaning is what you make of it. Winning a lottery by itself doesn't have a meaning intrinsically.

              I for one don't think that if I win a lottery, it would have to have any meaning.

                There's an outside chance that the rightful person in line could get the same ticket at the same instantaneous moment and be the rightful winner. They were cheated plain and simple.

                 

                I Agree!  about that next ticket was going to be the winner no matter what

                but how do we even know she was getting a poweball ticket maybe she was getting a p3 or maybe she wasnt getting a ticket at all maybe she was getting gas or cigars

                  I think Florida Lottery should settle this controversy once and for all by telling us how QP actually works or at least tell us whether the exact millisecond when pressing the QP button matters or not.

                      i already know i think it's something like this: every Lottery Mach is programed to sell a certain amount or something like how many sales per something like if your store is cranking out 20 million tickets a day and the store down the road only sells 10 tickets the whole week well you figure there will be more winners from your store.

                      no need to thank me Dance

                            A lottery spokesman did address this.  Each terminal has it's own RNG and the numbers change in a millisecond.

                            That info was lost in the shuffle to talk about the non winner.  Also there is a quote saying by Mindy that the old lady may have not noticed she cut.  At the counter the clerk tried to correct the error.  Mindy insisted the elderly lady go ahead.

                              Does Gloria owe Mindy anything?

                              No.

                              Will she give her anything?

                              I bet she'd like to and wants to.

                              I'd also bet her sons and lawyers won't let her.
