Would you tip the Store Clerk if you won big ?

Our store has heavy foot traffic of scratchers. So much, the clerk collects losers and occassionally finds a winner. He then uses these to play starting with the big games, MM/PB, then Cash 5/Pick 6 until he got hooked with twice daily Pick3. Once he won 10x str8 on a Pick3 and tipped me $100.

Today he's stalking me everytime I win on a scratch off. I kinda hate it but I feel bad if I dont. The Lottery is really addicting and spares no one. Even the clerk who just makes minimum wage.

There no such thing as free money, it might be cheap but it's not free.  Sounds like you're are getting what you deserved if you accepted a $100 tip from a store clerk.  Give the $100 tip back to the clerk, say "be seeing you" and find another store to buy your lottery tickets.

    Thanks. This might be the best advice so far. See Ya!

      How about keeping the $100 and then buying his scratchers at the same store and cashing them elsewhere?

      That money's gone fo ever
