Before you tell a soul that you won anything, go around to all your friends and relatives and tell them you're in a jam and need to borrow 500 bucks.

You'll find out who your real friends are that way.

Use their responses as criteria to determine who gets something and who doesn't.

HaHa Love it!!!!

To God be the glory... 

When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!

    Some people say they are too smart, to waste their money, playing the lotteries, but would like you, to cut them a check if you win. What would you like to do/say to them.

    Write a book about how you won and sell it to them for 49.99$ promotion, nice price!
    A week later, sell it for 59.99$ super promotion, price went up by only 10 dollars!

        Brilliant idea  rdgrnr. I can see some of them running and ducking, only to find out later that you are a multi-millionaire. I guess tough s**t is in order.

          I know lots of people that thinks like this.  When I tell them about me playing or talk about the lottery they shake their heads at me or give those eyes that suggest "stupid girl" but they will always remind me that they are there if I win.  I don't think I should only waste my money.  They should be putting in their money for their own chance, but nope.  I don't plan on giving them anything.  You can't win if you don't play so don't expect a free ride from me.  I have selected certain people I will help and the list ends there.

          I know two people, one always tells us, whenever we are having a pool, "If I ever win the lottery, I'll make sure I retire all you guys".  The other one always says,"I'll give each one of you $1M if I ever win the jackpot". But they never join the pool. One day, I pulled them aside, and asked them why they never join the pool. The first one said, "My wife will kill me, if she finds out that I spent any money on the lottery". The second one said, "Oooh, my pastor will be PI$$ED OFF, if he ever finds out that I gamble". So how the F**K are they gonna retire us all, or give us all $1M each when they "win"? One told me that it is just their way of telling us not to forget them when we win.

            Just got to thinking about this " check cutting fiasco". Why would people not ask one to cut them a check now?

            What if one was a current Millionaire and winning the jackpot simply added to their obscene pile of cash- does one have to first read about you winning the jackpot to reach out to you for help?

            Second of all: Do you give cash to panhandlers?

              I always give to the homeless and panhandlers when I have cash or a gift card on me so I wouldn't hesitate to help one when I win a big JP. However, people that are well and able to work but just lazy... NOPE. I will not be their free ride.

                "I'm sorry Mom, but I know you wouldn't want to encourage my irresponsible lottery playing ways."

                Okay, I'd get her an annuity or something, but there would be a leeeetle nose rubbing first. After the various lectures on money wasted I've sat through over the years... She never likes it when I point out she spends more on soda a week than I do the numbers though. Big Grin Angel

                    True, but my Mom was also a player, so I never would have to make that decision.

                    Also the only reason she played was so she could give most of it away.

                      I've heard people make such statements when I was buying tickets but they aren't people I know or associate with and they wouldn't be worth knowing or associating with after I won a large jackpot either.

                       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                        Oh boy...where do I begin?

                        I have all these folks in PA, that used to know me about 15-20 years ago...some wish me NON-EXISTENT.  (Not dead, just, non-existent.)

                        I have two Ex-GF's that if they found out I won....would try and move as close to me as possible...not so that I'd notice that they INTENTIONALLY did so....but, to let me know that they were around...and INTERESTED in me again...(they dumped ME!)

                        So, what I'd do....is let them in....take a stack of 100's as if it was a pretty fold fan...wave it under their noses...

                        "Like the smell, honey" 

                        "Oh yes, I do I do I do!"

                        "well, close your eyes....."

                        "Oh...alright...."

                        and then I'd turn up my butt in their face and FART a Nice Big WET ONE...right under their nose....

                        "Well,  baby...that's all yer gonna get!  Now GET OUT!"

                        And then when my wife comes back in from shopping, and asks "Who the hell were those b---hes coming out my house?"

                        "Exes, and they're gonna stay that way! :-)"

                          Nothing.  I would say nothing to them, nor would they get a check.
