There was a guy at the vending machine getting a scratch ticket, quickly rubbing off the bar code, scanning, and if it was a winner, scanning again to add to his balance in the machine. Then he'd buy another scratch and do the same thing. I stood there for a couple minutes, then said I'm not buying a scratch, just a megamillion. He reluctantly said okay, put your money in and get what you need. He had over $20 balance, so I put my dollar in on top of his and got my mega.
After I left, I wondered if I had ruined his winning streak. I kinda felt bad, cuz I could have stopped somewhere else on the way home for my ticket.
Was it rude of me to kinda put the pressure on him to let me cut in? If you see someone playing scratchers like that, should you either wait or go somewhere else? He was there first.
