I once had a dog named buddy.  When anyone said "Hey buddy?" I answered back "You are confused, my dog is named buddy.".

Thats a great name, my son always picked out names like Susy and Peter. Nothin like a dog named Sue.

    I also hate when the clerk is in a bad mood. I think its the kryptonite to my PEF. I usually hold up my bottle of Dr. Pepper and smile (See I'm buying retail as well - lol)

      I Agree! And have gone elsewhere to get my tickets because of that.

        I dislike when the clerk acts confused about how to ring up $150. in tickets that he just printed.

              Studying numbers, working out numbers, picking the winning number, get to the store, and forgetallaboutit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and it hits, that keeps happening to me, and it happened today.

              I had 972 on my mind as a repeat, because, it already fell on 2 Sunday's prior, and it was a follower of last nights pick 3, 253.

              My nephew called me, and told me his quick pick, and asked what I think?  He said, "auntie, my quick pick is, 997, I said, " two 9's and a 7, play 297, but, I was going to play it as 972, because, it hadn't dropped that way.

              Well, I didn't and it hit straight, today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.Yellow Eyes

              Was looking at the "date theory", looked at what hit in the pick 4 on November 18th, 2011, 3877 and some other number.  The game played me a day ahead,  1300 hit on November 19th, 2011

              Who does that on a constant basis?

              The Struggle is real!

                What we all need is a light bulb that floats around over our head and comes on real bright anytime playing the numbers in our head is a good idea because they are going to hit. I would even pay money for one of those.

                  • Missing a Pick 3 or Pick 4 by one digit.
                  • Some moron bogarting a lottery machine, sticking money in it and selecting scratchers one by one and scratching them while they still have money in the machine, thus 'locking  it up".

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

                  Lep

                  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.

                        If you can design it, there's a factory in China that will build it for little cost and you can probably get a small business loan from the government to create jobs, just don't tell them where you're creating them.

                          That's why most fast food chains minimized the guessing game and put pictures of the meals on the register tabs. God help you if you want to customize. Either you won't get what you ordered or you will be charge incorrectly as they can't think outside the box!

                            I hate when a clerk looks to long at the pay slip.

                            I once had an inexperienced clerk look at my tickets for over 45 minutes.  Sleep

                            Fortunately she was a real cutie  Lover , and I had no pressing schedule ahead of me for that day.

                              I gave someone a number to play and it came. Guess who wasn't smart enough to play it himself? This happened today. I am happy though that the person won. I own and operate a consulting firm so I guess I will chalk it up yo what I do best - lol!
