What would you guys do?

I work at a convenience store that sells lottery, and the owner of the store has been playing the lottery for 20 years and he has never won the jackpot.  I've been working with this guy for many years and he has become a good friend. Let's say I bought a Mega Million ticket and it was a winner.  Obviously the owner will know that the jackpot ticket was sold at his store.   How can I make it so he doesn't know it's me?  I guerentee that he will break off our friendship.

      I Agree!  That way you can collect your money and keep your friendship.

        I wouldn't worry about it until you win :)

        That way, the chances are that you will never have to worry about it...

          I agree. It sounds like the simpliest solution to me.

            Does your store collect a percentage if you have jackpot winner?  Some states the store gets fifty or a hundred grand for a big enough win.

            Most stores don't allow employees to ring up their own purchase.  Stupid to tempt even the most honest employee.  Will he notice if you stop playing?

              I think that you answered your own question.

              I've been working with this guy for many years and he has become a good friend.

              If you feel that he's a good friend, why would you all of a sudden cut him off, especially when you feel badly about him not winning for 20 tears?

                if this is a tru story  the owner will not get mad because he would know his store will benifit  and if he still was  upset buy his store ,then tell him his  chances of winning are better as an employee instead of a owner

                  Have you thought about going in together for tickets?

                  Maybe you could bring each other luck......?

                     oh he will be notified that the ticket was sold there and the exact time of the sell.. Then he can use cameras to see who the winner was..

                        The owner has been playing the lottery himself for twenty years and has never won. So you play and you win.

                        Think about it........

                        First... His store will get a certain percentage for selling the winning ticket.... a win for him!

                        Second........He is a gambler who is playing to win. He must know the law of ..... (the person that buys and holds the winning tickets is the winner of the jackpot.) That is, as long as they have not formed a lotterypool.

                        Third...Has he ever express the fact that he would share a jackpot win with you or have you stated the same with him.

                        Good luck on what ever you decide, that is, when you actually win.

                          Put the same question to ANY two friends, regardless of their positions or titles, a friend is a friend, no matter if he is your manager or not.

                           

                          That said, what if you and your next door neighbor both played, and one of you won, would that be a big deal to your neighbor ?   It shouldn't.

                           

                          Besides, if you bought your tickets at another store, wouldn't he be offended you bought them elsewhere ?

                          Also, I think only 3 states allow a person to claim (a jackpot, anyway) anonomously, so I'm sure he would find out anyway, especially when you roll up in your new ferrari to take him to lunch.
