Let me make sure I understand this. The only reason he bought lottery tickets was to break a $100 bill, so he bought two tickets that cost $20 each?

I wonder if he goes to the same church as that woman in Florida. "No, pastor, I don't gamble. I just needed to break a $100 bill, and the only thing on sale was $20 lottery tickets."

      I wonder if people tell these stories (I don't want to call them liars because they might be telling the truth.) because it makes for a good news story or something?

              The lottery already broke it for him when they held 25% of it for taxes and they will help even more when they send a W-2G to be filed with his taxes.

                Sure, KY Floyd, from the beginning of this article, most of us probably started chuckling when the article tried to sell that someone who has a large bill THINKS that they must spend $20 in order for someone to take the trouble to accept that large bill.

                Several times, at different gas stations, I've cashed a $50 or $100 bill before, but it's only to buy a pack of gum or my usual twice weekly on-line drawing lottery tickets.  A couple of times it was only a $1 purchase. Cash is cash ... if the owner(s) is concerned with forgeries, she/he should take 10 minutes to individually train/quiz ALL cashiers on how to hold large bills up to the light, and look at special charactors/images that are difficult to forge. 

                This winner/long-term gambler was certainly enjoying tossing around the fib!!!

                  That's not the first time a lottery winner told such a story.  I remember reading about a Michigan man who shared a $300M+ MM jackpot with winner from Chicago who said he brought a couple of hot dogs and a drink with a hundred dollar bill and took his change in lottery tickets of which one was the winner.

                            Good stuff brother, way to go. I need me one of those....not just a jackpot but a $100 bill would do me well right now, hahaha.

                            Congrats man, hope you and the family make the best of things. This can lead to the best of times or the worst of times...please make it the former!!
