Had a friend instead of paying her rent. She went out and bought some scratch offs. Some cash 4 tickets.  Some cash 3 tickets. Some fantasy 5 tickets.  And some Keno tickets.....  She spent $400. And won only $25. She has no strategy about herself.  She plays tag numbers birthdays and addresses.     Now she calling me to see if I know any pawn shops open she has no money to pay her bills.   She also ask me should she buy 1 last 20$ scratch off.......

        By the sound of it, even if she found a pawn shop open in order to pawn stuff and get bill money she'd end up using it as lottery money again.

            Guys, dont judge, I would recommend. I did something crazy like that in my life, not exactly the same situation, but others would call stupid and crazy. It was out of desperation, depression and  hopelessnes. Was not able to control myself, just couldnt. Childhood beliefs and all kind of stuff brought me to wrong desicions.. But I get over it and learned from mistakes.

            Pick4ologist, if your frend stupid, probably she was not born this way, she is acting like that from different reasons, probably not a good ones. Although, I dont know for sure...

            Also, I would not put my freind story out like that so she would be the reason for the discassion and judgement, may be she needs a help, really, she is your freind, right?

              You need to do an intervention ASAP especially if she has kids. Cc

                  I like your answer tvpventures, very nice, respectful and offering a real solution instead of the

                  nasty name calling. You seem like a person with a good heart.Smiley

                   

                  Help your friend out Pick4ologist, tell her don't buy that $20 scratch ticket and use it toward her bills 

                  she has to pay. Many gamblers have played with money that should have gone to elsewhere.

                    I dont claim.  Don't hate on me because I have good self esteem.  And you may not... And the moral of story is dont play with your bill money....

                      She went and bought 5 jumbo bucks. And a$10 ticket.  She won $100.  So she fell better now....

                          Glad she won that $100 lol

                          Was the win from the $10 ticket?

                              That's what I thought, I read a thread on Reddit, there was a lottery employee there answering questions

                              and he said $10 are good and don't waste your time on $1 scratch tickets.
