I purchased 6 daily 4 tickets at a grocery store. There were 3 number combinations (I wagered 2 way) and I wanted them both for evening and day.
First off all, some idiot pulled the fire alarm as I was filling out my payslip which was really annoying (more on that later).
But what really pissed me off is that slips do not allow for BOTH evening and midday drawings. They allow for consequtive drawings, not both in the same day. So I told the clerk the numbers and she typed them on one of those computers. However, as she was completing my last numbers, the fire alarm went off again! And when I got my tickets back, last numbers were in the wrong order.
Well, I just accepted it, but here's the kicker. The manager came up to the clerk when the fire alarm went off and said to her (regarding typing out the numbers on the machine) "You're not supposed to do it that way". Well, luckly she was through with the transaction, so I got my tickets, but what the hell?! It's bad enough there's no way to wager both mid and eve drawings, but if there's a machine which allows a way around the limits of the payslip, why NOT use it?
Now, I will be VERY VERY pissed if it turns out those numbers I WANTED were the winning numbers. Losing thousands of dollars because some stupid idiot pulled the fire alarm would be just my luck. If I DO win a few hundred bucks, I sure hope they redeem it LIKE THEY SHOULD or I'm going to be even more irrate.
Well, end of rant number 2.
