              I have worked at Speedway and Sunoco. I have been through everything emaginable. I love it when the customers get a bad additude and blame me when the lotto machine is not working. When a customer comes in with a 100 numbers written down on many scraps of paper, i tell them to put it on playslips,then they get mad and storm out the door cussing. Playslips are very easy to do if you take the time and look at them i tell the customers. Everbody who works with register paper knows when you see pink it's time to change the paper asap, alot of these cashiers are just lazy. I also love it when a customer tells me it will only be two numbers and it ends up being 20 numbers, the customers in line are giving me the look like when are you gonna cut him off (i'm late for work) lotto players always lie to me :( A lot of customers stand there and for half an hour thinking of numbers no organization no system and i watch them lose there money every day (it's sad) I will never be a station manager again they would have to pay me a million dollars :) My nice regular lotto players always made up for the bad ones with additudes.

                      There are Circle K stores in Louisiana.  They came into Louisiana in the mid 1980s by buying all of the 7-11 stores in the state.
