Sounds like something a small helpless animal would do. Scurry off to a hidden location and hope no one notices.

I did meet a lady once who was proclaiming that she had won some big thing and my first thought was WELL do you want to share it???? But I held my peace and didn't ask.

Or a very wise lottery winner would do.

Your second sentence above is why.

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.

    What the honk you talkin about coin, what is wise about running with your tail tucked between your legs and hiding???? One of the smartest things people will ever learn to do is say NO. And its not that hard.

    And my second sentence is why??? That doesn't make sense cuz I didn't ask her for JACK. She was the DUMB ASSSS that was TRUMPETING the fact that she had won a bunch of money.

    There is a differance between running and hiding and throwing in the FACE of everyone you meet.

    Why cant people just shut the flock up and act normal????

      I Agree!  with Rdge.  I just don't understand the self entitlement of "give me, give me." And I have said this before, but if someone offered me some of their winnings, it would always end of changing the nature of the relationship. I would say keep your money and save and spend it wisely.

          Ronnie316,

          The Misouri Lottery website has an excellent page on what to do if you win, they even suggest blowing town, at least for a little while.

          I don't see it as running with your tail between your legs at all, more like 'going to the matresses' out of necessity.

          As for the other statement you made, it sounded like you were ready to ask her for the 'mordida', the bite.

            Picked no, I don't know any big winners, unless they did't tell me about it, and thats  OK too.

            I suspect my one cousin my have won, but i never asked and never will unless i win and want to tell him.

            reason i think he may have won, is he retired early @ 55

            and moved to a small town 300 some mi. away,

            where he did,nt know anyone,

            and thats advice i read on LP, long after he moved.

             Also a guy i work with won $25000 about 15 years ago,

            no one was getting any of that except the boat dealer,

            he ran out and bought a 27 foot sportfisher as soon a he got the money.

            Forgot about this till i seen his pic. on the bullitin board at work,

            he won an fully paid trip for two on norwegian cruise lines from the company.
