Craziest thing I saw today.  During my morning walk, I went into a c-store to get a Hot Lotto.  Old guy at the counter playing scratchers.  I wanted to ask him why he wasn't buying Powerball but decided to mind my own business.

So then I went to the grocery store for crackers and stopped at the lottery vending machine for one last Powerball on the way out.  And there was ANOTHER old guy standing there playing scratchers!  There's a chance to win hundreds of millions of dollars for $2, and these guys are playing $10 scratchers for a chance at $30K!

The second guy was hogging the machine, standing in front of it while he scratched, then scanning and buying more.  Someone else came up behind me, so we started gently clearing our throats till he got the hint and moved on.

Some people seem to treat those vending machines as if they were slot machines.......

          I wish someone who lives in Orlando would go to the Publix store @ University and Dean and buy the tickets for $300, that someone ordered, but couldn't pay. The employees behind the counter are really trying to get rid of them. They are QP's.

          I live very close to there.  I bought about $30 of mistake tickets today at various stores around town.  I may swing by and help them out....

              Ha.. there was surprisingly a line at my normal gas station... They have 2 registers ... Somebody walked in and got in the short line (a teenager) and the lady in front of me popped off to him.... She was probably n her late 40's... But I was just standing there wondering why nobody in front of me had moved to the short line ... So I took it upon myself to do so :)

              I wish I may, I wish I might...
                         Win the Powerball jackpot THIS big night!!!

                  Was there at 5:25 clerk said they had none of the mistake printed left for sale....either they formed a work pool and snatched them up or the demand was just high.  Oh well, picked up 5 more QP!!

                            Last night the lady in front of me when buying her tickets was asked "if she wanted the power play".  She asked what it was and was told "it will double all your winnings" so she added the power play to her tickets.  When she left she told her daugter if they won the jackpot they will get double that amount and not the $550 million that other people would get!
