Another clerk story...

Stopped at a covneience mart today and played:

Mega Millions  $1.00

Little Lotto     $1.00

Pick 3  $.50 Straight

Pick 3 $.50  Straight

So the clerk says $4.00.

I said ,"No, $3.00 -  1 + 1 + .50 +.50."

The clerk says "Lottery tickets are a dollar." I show her the tickets, she looks at them and the playslips, and says, "$4.00".

Bang Head

I finally convince her of the "higher math" involved here, and she says, "Well I don't play lottery."

    Green laugh  you have my sympathy.

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

        Well you were probably talking with the '"Employee of the Month"  her cash drops are always more than actual sales...... 

         

        Do you think she would sell me a 5 QP MM ticket for a $1.00?
