I love it when the cashier say "Good Luck" to people when giving their tickets, don't you?

There are many stores I go to they don't care to smile, or even saying a word...

Most likely I frequent stores that wish me luck, then again often I am in a hurry it doesn't really matter, hehe.

Your thoughts?

    I personally could care less what they think,because the reality is(as far as p3 when I do hit)...it isn't luck.

    But they should wish luck when it comes to PB/MM or something that may positively affect their bank account where they get a commision off a big hit

    for always sticking up for me.."

      You have a very good point. As they say, it's better to recieve a benediction then a malidiction. They could say "hope you lose" and it could be like saying in show biz "break a leg".

        You never know how people will react.

        I worked in casinos in Vegas and on river boats, we had some players in Vegas, very nasty types, who would actually call a supervisor over and raixse hell because a dealer said, "Good Luck" (especially if it was a female dealer).

        (The ones that were "hep"l would let the player rant, and then while walking away, say, "Good luck, sir.")

        Then the river boats started with those "Have a Lucky Day" slogans which got a lot of "#$%* you guys" from a lot of people.

        With lotto, I like it when the clerk says Good luck.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          I usually purchase my tickets at the 7-11 and the cashiers always tell me, "good luck!" I don't mind; they're always pleasant and they seem sincere.

            What's wrong with a female dealer saying "Good luck"? Does this mean that they might jinx the game for the player if saying those words?

              I don't mind a store clerk saying good luck to me. If they do, I say thank you and move on.

                I also like it when they say good luck, I've been told good luck more times then I haven't, not everytime though.

                  Yeah, I do like it. 

                   

                  It is a lot better than when they give me the ticket, take my money, and don't say anything.

                    Yup! This was back in the late 1970s when females forst startedd getting into the dice pits, and a lot of "old time" players considered female dealers "bad luck", kind of like women on ships.

                      It doesn't matter to me, but I think it's nice when someone says it, although it's probably not always sincere like "Have a nice day."  Certain things become robotic after a while.  I admit that in stores I sometimes used a phrase that became a habit after a while.

                      It's always nice to be helped by a friendly person, no matter what you're doing.  Hearing "Good luck" is much better than being asked if you'll split the jackpot!  I've had a few people ask me that too!!
