              Sorry that I dodn't read all the replies yet, BUT...............Why would the delivery service just put the tickets in a box without first determine the right one??  Doesn't make sense to me.   What if it was something dangerous?   Or someone's medication? 

              I just had a nasty fight with the delivery man the other day, he tried to put my coffee tables on the front porch, I asked him if he can read because the mailing lable states the side door delivery.   I thought he as about to hit me because he said "Shut the h*ll up"  and "You better shut up".   I told him that it was MY house, MY merchandise and I will not shut up.  Kept at him until he put the stuff where it was suppose to be delivered.  I thought he was leaving, but he started to come back out of the truck because I said "what's the matter, your wife didn't give you any this morning".  The driver of the truck pulled him back in.   Lucky that he did because I was unloading a small bag of tools out of my car.   That would have been on the 11'oclock news?? 

              Yes I did report him, and told the service never to have him on my route again.

                      I understand what you're saying but I still had no clue that the store receiving the tickets has to "register" them.   Why would anybody know such a thing unless they owned a store?   I assumed lottery tickets were delivered like they deliver anything else at the store.   Like I said I don't play scratchoffs.

                          This raises another big question how lazy could the lottery department be not to be able to have their own security van deliver all their lottery scratch off tickets. They go to all the stores always for broken down machines and pick up lots of cash. Trying to rely on ups seems like too risky at this time this is not the first time ups screwed up they delivered a machine gun to somebody else before what else should i expect in my mail somebodies big toe. But i think i figured it out this lottery department already know most of their scratch off are trash anyway so why bother delivering aha.Hiding Behind Computer
