This post reminds me of the time, a few months ago, when I was in line waiting to purchase scratch-off tickets. There were about five people ahead of me, and there was a woman and her child in the front. The woman was buying a lot of scratch-off tickets and playing numbers. She was taking a very long time, and seemed to be spending a lot of money. I needed to get back to work, and normally I don't do this, but something just told me to say it out loud - "Lady, save some money for the rent!" The woman didn't hear what I said, but the daughter did, and said to her mother - "Oooooh mama, did you hear what that man just said?". The mother did a slow turn, looked at me, and starting yelling obscenities. I quickly left the store and never went back there again. Lesson learned here - when standing on a lottery line, patience is virtue, and silence is golden, lol.
