Anyone on their cell phone, while driving or babbling away while   Cussing Face  at work makes me want to: 

 

1. Grab their cell phone.

2. Hang up their caller

3. Toss phone into the nearest toilet or body of water.    Embarassed         Thinking of...

Yep, all good ideas, add stomp all over it.

      Sully-thats the same thing I run into.   Geeeeesh 

      Or the guy ahead of you who also bought a scratch off and proceeds to scratch it right there at the counter while the line to play is 10 deep and 10 minutes til cut-off?

      Thats when you say out loud, I thought all the big winners gone in that game,

            When the clerk gets pissed off because I'm buying lotto for the week.  I try my very best not to be in line when it is super busy.  I also get irritated because he always rings up the non-lotto items first, and then the lotto.  Why not do the lotto buy first.  Having said that I have had no problems at the store down the street, will have to make sure to start going there instead.

              When I get behind someone in line that is playing 100 pick 3 tickets.  It takes a long time to print them out here in VA.

               

               Good Luck,

                My face scruches when the ticket seller prints out 10 seperate tickets with 1 number on each slip instead of asking if I want them seperated.

                I used to get irritated because the readouts all over town were hidden so you had to take their word for it that you lost or when they throw away the slip and hand you $2 without showing the actual pay slip. Now I use the self-scaner and then turn in my winners.

                  You should tell them to give you the payslip and see what it says.

                  Especially if you can't see the readout and especially if they throw the payslip in the garbage right away.

                  And you're best off checking your numbers here before going to cash them in.

                  Don't trust the store scanners, they're notoriously unreliable and NEVER trust a lottery clerk.

                        I ALWAYS ask for my tickets back..I don't trust the store clerks or the machine to always be completely accurate. I also don't like it when the volume of the lottery machine seems to be turned down very low...Hmmmmmmmm
