When a clerk goes ticket by ticket counting how much I owe. I can see what the machine reads on the tower, why

can't they? Some of these people don't have a clue. At the register, I can't stand when the clerk looks back and forth

10 times to see that the money in their hand and the reading on the register match what I should be getting in change.

They pull from the same pool those register clerks and the lottery clerks...most of them should be taking simple math

classes again. Keep them away from money and counting, please.

246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

    Another is being asked when I hand playslips over: Are these for day or night?

    Duh. Why would I use playslips if I wanted to speak instead?

          When I ask the clerk to give me $60 worth of tickets and they say "woah that's a lot of tickets, are you sure?".

           

          I don't know why it bothers me but there's something about it that makes me think to myself "If I wanted your input like that I would of ask you how you felt about it"

             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.

                    When you buy more than $10 worth of tickets, not only does some clerks feel they have the rights to get into your business but so do other customers.

                      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.

                      LoL.... i had one girl who said "Are you going to take me out if you win "......

                      So i replied " if I have to win to take you out then... NO"...  Cheers  Cool

                      You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot

                        Thisi s why I love LP. Sometimes you think you're alone in having thesse weird experiences. I bought $100 worth of tickets once and was poractically shoved into a press conference with customers asking me everything from how I chose my numbers? Do I play this amount on every draw? Etc, Etc. As I made my exit they were actually cheering me on - lol!

                          Talk about short drawer phobia....I think that's what they are worried about, having the boss take it out of their pay.

                          No need to be worried about payroll docking when you have basic math and organizational skills. I have to say this,

                          I've never had a problem with Indian clerks keeping exact track of what I play and owe and am due. (Haven't

                          run in to the New York brother types yet though...so far, they've always been honest and on the up and up)

                            My pet peeves would be, standing in line to buy tickets and the guy in front of me or the woman has to buy every ticket there is, and they are holding up the line..

                             

                            Also another pet peeve would be that i don't have enough confidence in myself sometimes, and I go back and forth wondering what numbers are right to play or not.. And  being too self conscious over it..

                             

                            As well I buy insta picks, but like choosing my own numbers also..
