If there are 2 stores and one sells a lot of big winners and the other doesn't, where do you go?

The "lucky" store cuz it's "lucky" [ 29 ]  [30.21%]
The other store cuz it's due for a winner [ 14 ]  [14.58%]
Whichever store is most convenient [ 53 ]  [55.21%]

Personally, I go to the other one cuz the lines are shorter (more convenient).

rd, if there are more than 4 persons in front of me in the mornings, I am not staying there,  I find another vendor  with few in line, is that simple!

I go out early enough not to have to be long lines!!

forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

Now, does it count??

    I pick my own numbers so it doesn't make any difference where I buy them.

    I Agree! I prefer the mom & pop owned stores to buy my tickets for PB & MM.

    Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

       "I realize in this ridiculously overboard politically correct world we have steamrolled, that the following statements isn't gonna fly right with some.......but transparent as i be........i could care less (as GOD knows my heart)..."

      Usually when a person tell's me GOD knows their heart, I find it's to make excuses for their wrong doings, as I speak to them about the gospel!!   

      But coming from you Vision, I know it's not so, and it is the right forewod, for a person like yourself, who is not a  pleaser of man but of GOD! So I must tell you that in this context I just...

      Love your Introductory Statement

      LOL..Hahhaha...I am loving this statement!!   

      Quotable quote for me! and Statement of the year!!!

      thanks jrosina.

      i just stated that disclaimer,  because people (when they are weak in their position)  will attack others from the side door,  and by stating that,  it saved this thread from going haywire for a couple of pages,  whilst i would have had to take the time to  defend myself "why" is stated that.

                  "i am .........."meant to"       

      P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

               until further notice,  it's  france everyday

        I go to the store with the hottest cashiers. Green laugh

        They make me feel "lucky". Wink

        If that were the case for me, I would be broke. 

         

        I can think of a few places where I frequented in my younger days, where the girls were hot...oh never mind.... ;-)

          I picked lucky store however, if you have the number you have the number.  My favorite store is a mom and pop store . They give free tea or coffee and there is a space for the regulars to discuss numbers , just an overall " great atmosphere".  Over the door there is a  piece of wood from Ireland engraved in the wood  is this :"May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire".   It is a custom  for all the regulars  to touch  the wood when you enter and when you leave. Is it luck who knows.......or is it that the number hits you like some of the old timers say. I believe it is waiting for the correct setup of numbers

            Welcome Starr$. From the sound of your mom and pop store, I'm guessing you live in a small town or out in the country like me. Not too many places could survive in the city giving away free coffee and tea.

            I could use a little rub on that lucky board here lately.

            Good luck to you.

              Yeah Rosie, they have those things in the desert in Sedona, Arizona, they call em vortexes.  Weird, liberal hippie type people in flowing white robes take you out to them and charge you money to sit under a little makeshift pyramid on the vortex and suck up the energy or something. Beautiful country around there but a lot of the aforementioned weirdo types and the obligatory main drag of T-shirt shops.

              rd, Vortexes??? Like falling in a hole???!~!!!!  No not for me thanks!!! LOL.... I don't think so noooooo00000  Sedona Arizona!

              PYramid????!!!!   Like in Egypt????!!!!   No thanks to that either???!~!!!

              forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

              Now, does it count??

                        That looks pretty cool. I think I read about something like that off Belize too if I'm not mistaken.

                            I confess I am a lobster cracker!  What we do is take the crustaceans (2 1/2 - 3lbs.) and split them length wise and broil them in butter and lemon juice.  If there a two of you,  you get 1 claw and 1/2 of the rest.. Melt some more butter and lemon,  pinot grigio,  or vinho verde....maybe a little ensalada de patata a la remangije',  un pan ligoso gallego........oh oh!

                              I loved lobster too, until I found out they belong to the exo-skeleton group in the animal world. They're related to the roach of the sea....YUK!!!!!

                              Also, shellfish can't get rid of toxins while alive, unlike scaled fish.

                              The proof of toxins is present when you hear a seafood lover say "Jumbo Shrimp"......lol
