So here's the story. I'm parked right outside of a Gas Station/McDonald's, those dual store things where the McDonald's is connected to the gas station mart. This woman walks up to my car and ask me for money, says she's broke and starving, and needs money to eat from McDonald's. Now, I'm thinking to myself, I'm here to spend money on lotto tickets, the least I could do is give this poor lady a couple bucks so she wont starve. So I give her $2. Can't say the thought of good karma didn't cross my mind. 

I walk into the store and much to my surprise, she isn't at the McDonald's section, she's at the gas station section. I walk by and see her give the clerk the $2 I gave her, and I see him give her 2 Mega Millions QPs. My jaw is on the floor. I get the next 2 QPs from the clerk, but the damage was already done. If she ends up winning it with the money I gave her to get McDonald's, with the two tickets that I MYSELF would have gotten, well, I wont be able to cope with that at all.

    LOL What a smart woman. Got to give her credit, she did'nt buy smokes or beer. You should of grabbed those tickets and signed your name on them, then wish her luck. That will suck if she makes any money off of it.

        Wouldn't this be considered justifiable homicide if she wins? That's legal right?

          Masone, I'm guessing you're not the only one she did this to.

          She'll probably have a stack of tickets going into the drawing.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Well I had something similar happen to me. My wife and I were leaving walmart and

              there was a guy who looked homeless with a sign saying need food. She told me we

              should give him a few bucks so we pulled up and gave him 3 dollars and he said GOD

              bless you. About 2 days later we are out of milk so I am back at walmart and there he

              was at the end of his "shift" getting on a brand new moped and driving off. A week after

              that I stop at a lil cricket right above the walmart and he is walking out of the check cashing place

              next door scratching dollar tickets. That is very aggravating I know, but your heart was in the right

              place and GOD and Karma will take care of you and her.Best of luck to everyone tonight on the

              big one.

                I've never felt guilty about having extra money to spend of lottery tickets or anything else and I won't feel guilty if I ever win a lottery jackpot, so beggars and do-gooders who try to get money by pulling a guilt trip on me are wasting their time.

                  Once you make that decision to help someone out that you "perceive" needs helping, that should be the end of it.

                  What they do with that money after your gone is out of your hands. I would just chalk it up to a good Karma deed.    Blue Angel

                        These stories are exactly why I give to organized charities like our local soup kitchen, giving to someone who claims to NEED food, that actually doesn't...those days are over. We have a guy who rides a 3 wheeled bike that panhandles all the time.....my neighbor who is a rural carrier for the post office, told me that this guy retired from the P.O. about 15 years ago and chooses to live that lifestyle. They had a retirement party for the guy, gave him gifts, etc etc. Not to say he couldn't have fallen on hard times, but hes getting a retirement check every month....So, no donations from my wallet No No

                          So it only cost you $2 to learn what other people still haven't learned after giving $100s to so-called charities & good-causes; many of those organizations support activities that donors would be totally at odds with.
                          You have no control (and usually no knowledge) of what is done with the money once it leaves your hand.

                          If people only knew where some of their scout-cookie money was going ...

                          Some of the wealthiest people in the country run "charities", "churches", and other "good-cause" organizations. A particularly odious one even has "poverty" as part of its name.

                          In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
                          Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

                            I ordered pizza once at my friends house... there was a lady out on the street begging for money for food... we ended up giving her the whole pizza.... well apparently she didn't like what kind it was and once we walked away she just threw it on the ground!!!!!!!!!! people like that make it even worse... what did she really want money for?!

                            I wish I may, I wish I might...
