This reminds me of the Albany Seven where the guy cut in front of him when he was reaching for a candy bar.

    It's true she probably wouldn't have won. Quick Pick numbers aren't queued up waiting to be assigned.

      Right, the woman was tending to her child and grandma took advantage of it so much so that the clerk brought it to her attention that the mom was ahead of her.

        No good deed goes unnoticed Blue Angel

        Eternity is a very long time

        What you do today will effect your destiny in the everlasting Kingdom of God forever.

        The good you do today will add to your eternal reward and the evil you do today will diminish it.

        What you do for Christ will last and what you do for yourself will pass.

        The treasure you lay up in Heaven is forever and the treasure you lay up on earth is but for a moment.

        every deed and every act is either good or evil.

        We will give an account for every deed, every act and every word before the Throne of God.

        our lives are continuously being weighed in the balance.

        No good deed goes unnoticed or inspiring word forgotten, both are recorded in the book of remembrance.

          It's amazing how so many people overlook this fact.

          I suspect they know, but just don't want to admit it.

              She definitely deserves 10%. Had  I won all that loot, 10% would have easily gone her way-no question about it.

                  the results were opposite. With the Albany 7, someone cut in front of a guy and that guy who was cut in front of ended up buying the winning ticket.

                  In Florida, Mindy Crandell allowed Gloria Mackenzie to cut in front of her and Gloria Mackenzie won.

                  Is it better to let someone cut in front of you or for you to cut in front of someone else?

                    She wont give her a dime, but at 84 why not split it at the lottery office?

                      Well, depending on how it really happened, if she let an 84 year old cut in front of her out of respect, then she should be rewarded.  The woman won an awful lot of money and, even if she gives millions to her family members and friends, will certainly have enough left to write another check.  The story is a little confusing.  Did the winner actually cut in front of Mrs. Crandell or did she step away for a second?  I've been in Publix many times when the customer service people are very busy selling tickets and trying to handle their other duties.  They go from register to register.  Publix is a very large supermarket chain and each store usually has a separate area for the Lottery.  Often customers go the the Customer Service Center to conduct other business and then want lottery tickets.  If there's a line to buy lottery tickets, they usually do not get back in line. 

                      In any case, since the winner acknowledged the young woman, she is probably planning to give her a "thank you" reward.   I hope so.  Otherwise, I don't know why she would even mention her.

                      she cut in front. This will be the last time somebody cuts in front of me or it will be on like donkey kong!!!

                        Perhaps you should consider doing a little cutting of your own?

                            I Agree! Its the same type of story that made the timing just right for someone.
