Yesterday, I had a chance to run to Florida.  It's been the first chance I've had in almost a year.  Well, I get over to my favorite circle K store just across the border and get in line to buy my favorite tickets.  Well, an older guy was in front of me buying a lot of lotto and powerball tickets.  I didn't mind the wait at all...  But these three rude ladies came up behind me...  Like I said, the guy was kinda old so it took him a few minutes to count out his money and all.  Well, the ladies started trash talking him and others playing ahead of them.  One said, "I wished it was state law to have seperate lines for this $h*t."  Two ironic things I noticed here...  First off there was an empty register on the right side of the store.  She was too lazy to walk over there.  She wanted to be checked out by the door for some odd reason (like it was a 100 mile walk or something).  Then, she commented, "I always buy quick picks so I don't hold up the line." (HYPOCRITE)  So then it was my turn...  One of the ladies behind me tried to jump in front of me but the clerk looked at me instead of her.  Oh yeah, I could have been rude and spent 5 min trying to choose which instant ticket I wanted but I was afraid the ladies were going to get mad and slap me with their pizza they were trying to buy.  (Who goes into a gas station for a slice of pizza anyway???)  Anyway, this was a first for me and I wanted to share my run in with rude Florida pizza loving hypcrites.

Let me just go on the record saying, if you're a customer (lottery or GM) you should be treated the same.  And to anyone that complains behind you, give them a dirty look and take as much time as you need.  And that folks, really burns my beans.

-Good luck everyone.

How are you going to win if you don't play?

      Complaining cause someone is counting money?  There will always be rude people... But not as bad as when people fill out lottery slips in line I mean who does that?  Take 10 to 20 min to fill out the slip at the empty counter and let others get their ticket...

      P.S. I dont know how good pizza is down there but up here in pittsburgh, PA gas station pizza is the $H#T!!! I LOVE IT!

          I don't have a problem with someone buying a bunch of tickets and having to count out the money.   What does tighten my jaw is when someone buys a bunch of scratchers, then starts scratching them off right there like there was no line behind him.  Then he wants more !  That is the HEIGHT of rudeness to me.

          And you never know where gas statio pizza had been !

            Oh yeah!!!  I agree that people shouldn't scratch at the counter or fill out their playslips at the register...  I also understand that their pizza was getting colder than it already was...  But there was an open line 10 steps away.  I forgot to mention when I was actually buying my ticket (took 5-10 seconds) the loud mouth of the bunch mumbled some words under her breath...  I wanted to turn around and tell her my thoughts and feelings but like I said I was afraid of nasty gas pizza being thrown into my face.  I can't put into words how nasty that stuff looked.  Puke

                  Sadly, I agree.

                            You ain't seen nothing!!!! Man, here in China talk about rude. Nobody believes in forming a line. It's like a mob scene "me,me,me,me". Being from New York I didn't know what rude meant 'til I came here. Mad
