I went into one of out  local grocery stores to play my numbers that I had a friend at work fill out for me. I had 3 combos but left the other playslip in the car  which id dn't remember to get. She asked be to fill out another play slip I told her I couldn't see the playslip that was why I gave her the numbers on a piece of paper. She said she would fill it out since there were no playslips  where they keep the playslips. That is why I like going to that store. some of the clerks don't seem to mind  helping you and you can choose your own numbers without a playslip. That helps me a lot

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      Enjoy the Kindness of clerks while you can .

      Here in the East ....

      There are big chain gas stations in which I had most bad experiences it happened at QTs and Race tracs.

      I always put a big smile when I walk in to this public places first because you want to be treated the same way right? and second because you want to look good in the cameras right?  but noooo......

      At Quick trips gas stations most of the times the clerks get confuse when I handed them the playlips they either charge you for all the tickets and leave some already printed tickets behind on the machine or they won't play them all and I have to check every ticket to see which one is printed or not.

      This might be because this guys are doing several things at the same time or they want you give you lousy service cause your not buying anything except lottery and they know their manager wants to sell the overpriced goodies not lottery but it happened several times already so I'm done with this places really at Race trcs too.

      Last time I was at a Race trac gas station I was  excited to cash in couple of box tickets 80.00 each I ask kindly to cash in at least one because I know they are there to take your money not give it back!! so they don't keep too much at hand for safety reasons I guess

      But my argument is the the first look at this guys face was WTF do you want your not buying anything?....."no sorry we don't have any cash at this time"

      Right in the middle of the Day? there was a lot of foot traffic at the store what the hell

      So my recomendation is never play lottery at these places or cash in tickets or is it just me....

        I also have gone thru some B A clerks but the grocery store I go to now the clerk let you pick you own numbers without the playslips. When I was able to afford it I would get 20 QPs. some of the convient store clerks didn't know how to do 20 and at other convient stores they knew what they were doing. I am sticking with the grocery store. I wwent to the same grocery store today to buy my Pick 3 tickets i wanted to use the 1-up/1-down  system for Kansas 761 but I got tongue -tied and my numbers wer 720 and 862. I bought hoping to cash in on the mistake we both made

              I buy my tickets only from this Deli where I also most of the time buy food (they make good food lol) and the clerk is nice and honestly, he hates the playslips but anyway, i played once from a grocery store and the dude was mean as anything and didn't even say a word seemed like he hated life lol.

                  Some times when clerk try to be friendly, they would be better off not saying anything.  For example when one says "I noticed you spend a lot on lottery tickets, do you ever win anything?" or like last night when a clerk asked "Did you come out in this bad weather just to pick up a couple of lottery tickets?"  I prefer a clerk you just takes my money, run my play slips and maybe say "Good luck" as I leave.

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    Yeah. I just want to go in, get what I need, and leave. I don't care about small talking with store clerks.
