I'm in need.

Remember that.

OK, we have a contract now.

I'll have my lawyers get in touch to get the details worked out (I'm fine with half).

lol.  I know you are kidding but I think there are people who really think that on LP and they would try to sue someone for that "promise."

            I think that should be her decision, but if it were me, I would.  I always share my winnings with someone in need.

            In spite of their winnings most lottery players never win as much as they spend, so if they are they sharing their winnings with the needy, they're sharing money they earned by other means than winning the lottery.

              Hahahahahaha. OMG, that's hilarious. 

              What's even funnier is that's how these things get started. One person makes an off the cuff comment and it becomes a verbal contract later on. Which is why you should never make these kinds of comments, because rdgrnr, me, and everyone else here in need will claim you made this promise, and we're in need, so...

                Good luck enforcing such a contract, it means as much as a guarantee that you'll win a lottery jackpot using one of the many lottery systems for sale on the Internet.

                  I'd have been inclined to give her something till she started the passive aggressive manipulation bullcrap.  After she went on her publicity stunt, I think I'd dig my heels in and refuse to give her a penny.  In fact, I might even call her a liar and a scammer, and tell the world it wasn't even Mindy who let me in line.  But that's just me.  Naughty

                  OMG, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

                  Everyone who believes Gloria owes Mindy something is automatically assuming Mindy is being truthful. Why? Because she looks sweet and wholesome? Ted Bundy killed a lot of women over a long period of time because he was sweet-looking too. 

                  Let's "believe" that Gloria cut in front of Mindy. You want to tell me how an 84 year old woman with glaucoma glasses suddenly had the speed and stealth of a Japanese ninja?   Even if you're facing sideways, you can see someone who walks and stands in front of you. There had to have been a big enough space in that "line" for granny ninja to get in there and Mindy had to have been facing completely away from it. 

                  The very fact that this woman took it upon herself to contact the press so that the world could remark on how wonderful and selfless she is, is EXACTLY the reason she deserves nothing now. Her little digs at Gloria, and her seemingly passive statements are all well designed to do exactly what the entire country is doing now; put public pressure on Gloria to hand over some of that money to Mindy. No truly selfless person would have contacted the press. Ever. Mindy Crandall is on a mission and she has nothing to lose. 

                  Even if I am willing to concede that Gloria deliberately cut in line (which I don't buy) how does that equate to $1M? I guarantee there are a lot of people who do actual good works who deserve it more than she does. Set college funds for Mindy's kids. That way she did something noble for the Crandall family and Saint Mindy doesn't see a dime of the money she says she's okay with not getting. Win-win.

                    Who says anything about enforcing? You think half these ludicrous lawsuits filed are actually enforceable? But what it is is a nuisance to the person who has to defend themselves. If it's a big enough nuisance, some might feel it better to just hand over something instead of paying lawyers and having to show up to court. 

                    Besides, all the opposing lawyer has to prove is that he can get one idiot on the jury to believe him. There are people who actually believe that the members of the Bilderberg group are really reptilian space aliens who have taken human form in order to control our world. If you have millions at stake and a public with a dislike for lottery winners who don't share, would you take your chances that the jury would be made up of all smart, rational people?

                    A phone sex operator sued her employer because she got carpal tunnel from her constant masturbations. I thought, no way can she win this. But she did. She was able to prove that because talking dirty all day got her so hot and bothered she had to relieve the tension, she had no choice but to masturbate, and the constant masturbating caused CTS. Work place injury with a cause and effect. Who knew?

                      Gloria would not have won the PB jackpot, had Mindy not let her ahead in line.  So should Gloria share with Mindy and if so, how much?

                      How can you be so certain  with that statement" Gloria would not have won..."how do you come by this knowledge?
                      Can you say with absolute certainty that Mindy would have received that precise ticket had she remained in line? By what standard do you calculate Mindy getting the winning ticket since QP's are processed in nano seconds?
                      Enlighten us as to how you know for certain this would be so?

                        Suppose you were behind Mindy in the line ?

                        You could say to Mindy "when you gave her your spot you took mine, so you should let me in front of you"

                        and that could go on all the way to the end of the line.

                            No.   If there was no agreement (meeting of the minds) to share any prize, she would not be enttitled to half.  Most if not all courts would see this as someone doing a nice deed for a little old lady. It would be like that women who gave tickets away in line then claimed she did not mean to give them away.

                              Hey, I just recalled that I was in Florida around that time and I think I was behind Mindy.  She had asked if she could go ahead of me.
