Pet peeves : It's when someone, or somethings, actions really irritate you and you just can't stand it.
It could be irrational, and not even annoy anybody else. It can be different for anyone

 

My lottery pet peeves is when I give my playslip to the cashiers , once the the machine gets done printing the ticket just give my my tickets i dont need you too check it for me. That irritates the  hack  out of me ..  Mad

My peeve is the conspiracy theorists. I think if someone believes the lottery commissions are crooked, then don't play.

mcherry, it may be that the clerk is counting the amount you owe for the tickets. When I get mine they look at each ticket for the cost.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

        Omg! They must have a team of clowns in every state. I thought that only happened in Florida. I even have members of the crew conducting exit poll interviews as I leave the store - lol.

         

        Do you think you're going to win tonight? I just look up with a cryptic smile beacuse if I respond I may be band from my favorite spot!

            ohio pick3 betslips do not have pair play on them even though you can play pairs!
            try telling a clerk how to enter pairs, most don't and most will not put in 10 pairs for you..to much work!

            have a great winning day!

                 My pet peeve is when you stop at the store on the way to work and their machine is down for some reason. You don't have time to stop any where else and one of your numbers hits straight. That's happened 3 times.   Let It All Out

                The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

                Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                   I've had clerks tell me I'm one of their few customers who use the play slips. So I guess they don't like it either. It makes it

                  easier for them too.

                      I also don't like people breathing down my back when I'm playing my #s and will often tell people to go ahead of me if I'm not pressed for time.

                      Another peeve of mine is when I'm convinced I have a straight hit because I've been playing a number faithfully, only to find that I dropped the number and forgot...Skeptical

                      Will history repeat itself? (These are the numbers I hit in January over the last 4 years.)

                      JANUARY:       2013:   903 187 749 170 668 217 828 610 309      2014:  061 215 390 521      

                      2015:  182 070 093 601 093      2016: 521 294

                           YES!!! All three were after real bad weather the night before, so I suppose the system was having "technical difficulties"

                           booting up. There is a gas station near my job that I go to now when that happens, but I have to make like Mario Andretti to

                           get there in time and not be late.
