I actually feel kinda pissed off about this! U know what I hate? When I'm telling the cashier what I want, and they give me the cash option. I just went and bought a TX Lotto ticket today. The cashier was asking me how old I am, and was kinda making small talk. I said, "I would like a Lotto. Annual Payments Option." When he handed me the ticket, it said Cash Value Option on it. It makes me want to just buy my tickets at the lottery kiosk machines here. This is not the first time this has happened. If I win the jackpot, I don't want any crap. I'll still be super happy that I won, but one lump sum is not how I want my prize. I'm going to take the ticket! It might be the jackpot winner! But it's not what I asked for and that annoys me.
Anyone else had any similar experiences with this? Like, getting the wrong payment option on your ticket? I guess some of it really all boils down to not getting exactly what you want, more particularly, what you're paying for.
