A customer who purchase a keg of beer at $70.00 is ok.

 A customer who purchase a carton of cigerettes at $40.00 is ok

 

But a customer who purchases $40 worth of Hoosier Lotto is insane and dumb. 

 

Yep, this is what happened to me today.

    Don't forget if you end up winning any money because of your insanity, the clerk will expect a nice tip.

    They understand a person spending money to support a drinking or smoking habit but why would anyone want to waste $40 on lottery tickets?  Even some of those folks buying the beer and cigarettes feel the same way.

      It really depends on where you go. Don't forget, some people are just jerks. One place where I like to buy my tickets, I was once behind a guy who bought $100 worth of online games and scratch-offs. The clerk didn't give him any hassle. And neither did I. Smile I was actually glad he was in front (well ... that once), because it makes any amount I spend there look "normal".

        It's not only lottery tickets.  People are always into other people's business, don't you agree?  The other day a man began commenting on the contents of my wallet.  (can you believe that?) He obviously mistook my various cards (driver's license, library card, AAA card, Blockbuster card, etc.) for credit cards, not that it should matter to him, and said "Lady, if I were your husband, blah, blah."  I said "Sir, if you were my husband, I'd have run off with another man a long time ago."  I've also been in line and someone's made a comment about my grocery purchases!  "Why are buying low fat yogurt and waffles?"  I'm not mean, so I just smile, but I want to respond "and why aren't you ashamed to leave the house looking like a slob?"

          As I said in the past many times, screw the clerk they did nothing they were not paid to do. I will give them a tip, get a better job that pays better. You are dirt to them unless of course you win. Everybody wants to jump on that bandwagon. I am too smart for that.

            Not to be rude, but this newbie has to sound off on this...

             Despite the Hoosier Lottery's troubles, and how silly it may be to spend more than $1 on a troubled lottery, why do you think you have the right to judge someone elses purchases?

            No matter what this person looked like (rich, poor, old, young, white, minority) so what if he/she wants to spend their own money on the lottery. I've spent WAY more than that on one drawing multiple times, and sometimes I lose money but sometimes I win it back and then some. I'm a young white kid. One of the things that I hate the MOST about my lottery habit is when the tickets are printing and its taking a little while, I wonder if the people behind me thinking "Why is he throwing his money away on that?"

            My attitude is that I work for my money, and I'll spend it however I damn well please, no matter what the person/people behind me are thinking. I don't like being judged for my purchases.

             Someone please tell me if I missed the point of this thread...was SmoothJuice's post intended to judge the person in front of him/her today for buying Indiana tickets or was the problem the $40?

              Jarrettac, go back and read the title of the thread.  I believe SmoothJuice was saying that he purchased $40 worth of Hoosier tickets and the clerk was rude to him, while others spent just as much or more on beer and cigarettes.  So I guess he's asking which is dumber - spending $200 a month on something that causes cancer or liver damage or something that might make you rich? Actually, I think it's all a waste of money, but I buy lottery tickets anyway since they don't make me cough or give me gas.

                  JX, Thank you. I had a feeling that I may have interpreted the intended meaning incorrectly when I was finished typing. I've retracted my post. :)
