      I stopped to get one MM ticket with the Megaplier. I asked the cashier for a MM ticket with Megaplier. He said "You want a $2 mega?" I said, NO, I want one game with the multiplier. He gave me a $1 Mega ticket, without the Megaplier. 

      So, I ended up taking that ticket, plus a ticket with Megaplier after he finally understood that I wanted one game with Megaplier and not two $1 games.

      Sometimes I think retailers do things like that on purpose because they know most of the time the customers will take the mistake tickets.

      So...I will graciously accept $1 mil up to $5 mil or the whole enchilada!

      Party

      My "favorite" time was when I went in to the neighborhood 7-11 and asked for 14 mega millions with multiplyer and got 40 without the multiplyer.  The clerk who had limited English thought 14 meant 4-0 not 14. And she argued with me (a native English speaker) that I didn't know what 14 meant! Confused  It wasn't even a misunderstanding except for hers on what 14 means.  And she had no idea what the megaplyer was and was too arrogant to ask me.

      Luckily my husband was with me and was able to give me extra cash to cover the $40 and I was still able to get my original $28 worth.  I kept them all because I had previously won nice money on a clerk's mistake.  If I remember correctly I made the $40 back so it wasn't too bad.  But from that point on I started stockpiling play slips and almost always use them unless I go to one store where we are well known and they know their stuff.

        .

        That's what I had to do, with the grocery store around the corner. 
        They act like lotto is some new thing that started a few weeks ago, and the whole world has now jumped on the lotto-wagon.
        And now, they're sick of dealing with all lotto players.

        It's a akin to some local banks that removed the coin sorters/counters, for folks who save
        their change.  I guess that Coin Star sued because they weren't getting their 8.9% fee.

        It all sucks now:  1) Banks without  coin sorters,    2)  Store employees who deal with
        players  the same way the banks with coin machines that need frequent service did.

        You can't complain to the state lotto hq, because they'll take the side of the useless store.
        You can't complain to the banks because they'll tell you that all the banks in the area have removed their coin machines.

        And the banks are right!   I looked it up online, about coin machines in my area and sure enough, that was the case.

        Fortunately, there's a convenience store down, a few miles where they're ALL well-oriented in lotto. 
        Of course, they have all the
        scratch-off games, and a sit-down area to do the keno and race track games.
        AND YET, they don't speak nearly the level of English that the folks at the grocery store do!

        But, having to switch stores, because of continual employee incompetence is a major inconvenience.

         

        Why would their English proficiency matter at all? Just hand them the play slip and that's it. The last thing you want when money is involved is to give and get small talk with people you don't know and who would know that you won.

          Hey King...If you won the jackpot, would you share it with all of us on LP?  A true leftist like you would surely to that.  BTY whats your major in college?  Women or minority studies?  You're in America bud.  We speak English here!

            I love those old movies from the 1930's. I love seeing the art deco apartments in some of the movies.

                If you just look at the last ten draws you will see 1-up 1-down repeating numbers series even mirror numbers 

                It can be done if you pick yourself...I've been pretty close recently

                  That's communism, very different. Political Science and History. I did take Africana studies classes because you won't have any other time in your life to be able to study what is going on in the world (the third world especially) and the history of it. Go to a border town on either border and you'll get laughed out of town for saying that. Unfortunately, i am unilingual but i have studied Spanish and Hebrew. I don't remember any of it.

                          The top tax rate in the 1950's was 90%. If only we could have real politicians advocating reasonable rates like that. Unfortunately all we got in 2016 was the centrist Sanders and his pathetic 52%. The rest of the world laughs at us and our insane obsessions with low taxes, no gun control and terrifyingly low minimum wage.

                            An ideal scenario for you would most likely be a 90% top tax rate and a $100 an hour minimum wage. That will go a long way towards paying for a $50 Big Mac or a new $200k Toyota Corolla while living in government confiscated mansions that have been converted to multi family units.

                              70% seems quite fine. I know it's practicably impossible in this far-right country. 50 years ago the largest employer was General Motors which paid the equivalent of $50 an hour, today it's Walmart at $7.25 an hour. $18ish bucks is right around what it needs to be given the inflation of the last 30 years. I visited Israel which has a 100% tax on cars, just saying. There are more vacant homes in America then homeless people and there are millions of homeless in America. Enough said.
