How can anyone buy a lottery ticket and not check it the very next day?

Simple rule of thumb::Check everything. Eat out at a restaurant,  check your final bill, don't just sign the piece of paper. Check your tires before you roll, not figuring out on the freeway that you close to a flat. Check your bank statements, don't assume everything adds up.Lastly : check u lottery tickets before tossing them out or don't purchase them at all. Do you hand a batch of your lottery tickets over to the Clerk and say " could you check these for me cause I feel kinda lazy today? " Would you take his word for it if he said with a smile  "All losers sir"..

..didn't think so. 

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

    Wow !

    Imagine if his friend wasn't there. He should give him a good portion, because if it weren't for his friend, there was a 99% chance it would have been thrown away.

    I Agree! Sharing is always Good. Love

      Like my dad use to say. People throw away money everyday. Good for him he had a good friend. I sometimes triple check scratch-offs that I know that are losers. Just in case. Lol

        I Agree! Do you know how you can tell that people hate money? When they get some they immediately trade it for something else. Like homes, cars, food, clothes, entertainment, etc.
