I noticed on another Pet Peeve thread (which is now closed), most pet peeves included the attitudes of cashiers...Here are my pet peeves....

Headlines after lotto win reading as follows:

LOTTERY WINNER SAYS WINNING TICKET WAS HER FIRST TIME PLAYING LOTTERY!

or....

LOTTERY WINNER SAYS HE HARDLY EVER PLAYS LOTTERY...

or...

LOTTERY WINNER ALREADY A MILLIONAIRE...

but my worst pet peeve are all the news articles and/or media that I refuse to believe that say things such as ..

"Dreaming of winning the lottery?? Keep dreaming because the winner tonight will not be YOU"

UGGGGHHHH. I can't wait to rub it in their faces when i do win! =)

    I don't like when people crowd me in line.

    So sometimes I'll turn around and let my beard drape down over the top of their heads and pretend I don't notice 'em down there.

          Thank you so much!!!

          I don't like being crowded in line either, especially when it's close to the cutoff time for ticket puchases...Come to think of it, another pet peeve of mine is when I am trying to beat the clock to purchase a ticket and it seems to be right during a shift change for the clerks!! UGh, the nerve of them! LOLOLOLOL
