    I'm a c-store manager,my people have a ball selling them ... partly because we are all into the lottery ... but about 90% of my regulars have won something so we think the suckers are those who leave without a ticket !!!

      I live in a really small town.  I get lotto fever, something horrible.  The clerk/owner is always like your wasting your money, if you invested your dollar,  you would be a head of the game.    To me the lottery win fantasy is priceless.  However, the day after the big win and naturally,  it wasn't me, is  a painful reality.  What are you going to do, its natural for people to judge.  Just like it is natural for everyone to turn into your new best friend if you won the jackpot.

        GIDDYUP,

        That's my kind of store and the only kind of place I would buy my tickets.  I go out of my way to buy my tickets from a store like yours.

            I always thought that the owner of the store makes a certain % of the sales of tickets he sells.  Is that true?  And if that is true it would look like they would be glad to sell you all the lotto that your heart desires.....

            Hey, its your money,,,,,,you earned it,,,,,spend it the way you like.  Or find another store that will be glad to get your business.

                If you feel they are looking down on you, just like ANY other purchase - take it elsewhere.

                 

                If you win a jackpot the store owner gets $100,000, so buy from someone that you feel may deserve it.

                    The store clerk is probably a undercover drunk and why should he care what you  spend your money on as long as his store is getting profits.Bash

                      If a store clerk that is probably making 8 bucks a hour is judging anyone then that said clerk has alot more to worry about then you do...

                       

                      don't ever sweat anyone...

                        People that win big in my state come from small towns that I've never even heard of.  If you're playing, you're part of the odds.  You can't win if you don't play!

                          That is your own insecurity coming to the surface, perhaps guilt. I have none, and when I do hit it big the only sucker will be them.

                            I believe it depends upon the particular state. Here, as I remember, the store only make 5 cents per sold ticket. They get a reward (don't know how much) should they sell a jackpot winner though. The nickel/ticket is nothing, but they know they need to sell lottery to attract people into the stores.

                              This is your perception of what they were thinking; not necessarily fact. Perhaps that is actually how you were viewing yourself.  In the end, what the clerks (or anyone else) thinks about what y ou do is irrelevant. You are not responsible for other people's opinions.
