I think there is some truth you say about pushing buttons. He kinda reminds me of my late uncle.

As far back when I was only about 4 or 5 years old, in Iran, my uncle would test my knowledge, but in a good way. He started this never ending scenario about the elephant and ant story. It was a joke of sorts which he brought up from time to time. Actually the way he recited that same old story over and over was quite amusing, yet even as a very young child, I clearly remember how it got to me after a while, as If he was now patronizing me.

Anyway....The story is about an elephant who gets hurt in the wild, and asks the help of an ant. That's where the fun begins because everyone, even at that age knew that there was pretty much no way for an ant to help an elephant. Slim to none....lol

And then he'd start to laugh on from that point, knowing how silly it was to keep going with a story of an ant carrying the elephant to get help. I forget the details, but I lucidly remember his face laughing as he told that story.

I think he meant well, but I felt uneasy after about the 79th time, hearing that story and laughter. And not being savvy enough to tell him that he should stop this tired attempt, and to get some new material, left me frustrated.

This clerk definitely fits the bill.....LOL

I forgot to add, that this clerk had a similar trait whenever I ask him for plastic bag. He kinda messes with me and says no. But that got so old, and he still uses that bit.

I would still give him a tip despite everything i said, just for the mere fact that he lost his voice, and that I really shouldn't complain so much about every little detail of every little thing that happens. Maybe he's just that way because he did lose his voice, and some bitterness ensued, but a very fine line bitterness between showing someone an extreme end of the spectrum of emotions, and being right on the border line, leaving people to be mystified to what just happened here, so to speak...lol

      The ones closest to you,  know you the best,  and know exactly where all the buttons are.

      On the other hand, there are people out there in the world whose personas are primarily confrontational.  They carry a set of action lines they know will get a rise out of anybody just for the sake of starting a dialog, discussion or argument.  It is up to you to recognize and think carefully before you disclose your affinity or aversion to whatever someone may hurl at you. 

      I count to five,  then respond accordingly.

              Unfortunately, money does buy you happiness.  It just doesen't come easy, that's all.

              I say unfortunately because for most people, they brag about their winnings, and that's the problem. Then lose most of it soon after.

              It's a material world. We live in it. We're not spirits, but flesh and blood.

              I hate to say that Modonna was right. We live in a material world.

              Flesh and blood....

                  True, but what about me?

                  I'm just a limo driver, and I still managed to know that the moon revolves around the earth,not the sun, and that the cash 3, or lotto is not a trillion to 1.........Go figure....What? Little ol' me...?....lol

                  Trust me...I'm no genius....

                  Yes, but you're a LP member, he's probably not.  People coming here have more interest in learning about lotteries than the average person. 

                  There are LP members who have posted every week for quite a while and someone mentions "copy and paste" they....What?.  I figure no one can use a computer very long and not know about NotePad and copy and paste.

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    Consider that you live where the masses cause the politicians to run for cover when gasoline gets $3-$4-$5 dollars per gallon, but people will calmly pay $20-$30 for a 20 ml ink cartrige. That's $3800.00 ~ $5700 per gallon.

                    In general, most people do not handle(compute) very large or very small numbers well.

                    In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
                    Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

                            publicly. 

                            Manzy you are tripping, you have let the scrapies get to you.  It seems you get "high" berating anyone for merely making a statement you don't even understand, for the love of God please take a breath, get some help.

                            I think you're the ones that aren't understanding what I am talking about. I don't think any of you can realize the damage that you cause to the world by sending out the types of energy you are sending out.

                            Wanting the win the lottery so that you can help people out who are in need is the same as if you prayed for bad things to happen to someone.

                            It's simple metaphysics...      People are focusing on the wrong things and that hurts the entire universe.

                            Stop it!

                            Instead wish happiness and good fortune for yourself and everyone else.

                            But then again I doubt any of you will even begin to try to understand what I am talking about because you all are in this feeding frenzy on a new person who offended one of the regular's ego.

                            I've heard the type of stuff you all say before time and time again and it's tired.    Why don't you all try to even listen to a new concept once and awhile.

                            Besides since when is tipping based on "helping others out because they need help"  to my understanding tipping is done beause you appreciate the service you get.

                            You all need help. I'm just fine. And I am sure there are plenty of others that agree with what I've said but they are just too afriad to say anything because  they don't wanna upset the resident clique here.

                            You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

                              Besides maybe if you would listen to what I am saying then you all would become winners like me :)

                              Yeah that's right. Why do you think I found this website in the first place.

                              Do me a favor if you don't like what I say then leave it alone. Others might want the help I am giving them. I know Irondoor valued the info I gave him in the creating luck thread.

                              There are more ways to help folk then throwing cash at them....    helping them change their reality so they can have abundance in all areas is perhaps more valid. Because you are enpowering people not keeping them in bondage to you. Giving handouts to people does nothing but keep them in bondage to you.

                              I'd rather empower people.

                              You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!
