I have been (was) on a roll lately. I posted the Atlantic City trip wins a little while back and figured that was going to be it for a while. Well I hit the PA three digit DAYTIME on Sept. 10th for 1K. $1.00 super straight, twice. Then the same number,160, came back on Friday the 13th, NIGHT and I had it again for 1K. Great says me.
Went to the Meadows casino. They should call the place CASH IN O, as in cash into the machines only and lucked into a 2 coin dollar "Quick Hit" machine. Hit it for $1019.00. Only had $60.00 in it. Great says me.
Haven't bought a scratch off in a while. Don't intend to.
Now you know I thought I had the touch and went back there this past Sunday. Lost $500 in about an hour. I was sick. Mostly mad at myself because I know better. The meadows SUCKS and I know it.
On the way home I made a promise to myself. If I can get that $500 back I WILL NEVER GO THERE BY MYSELF AGAIN. That's how I get in trouble. If my wife goes with me I never get that stupid.
Yesterday at work my helper tells me that the numbers 350 and 351 keep showing up. I ran up the street to get cigs and played them both. $1.00 super straight. I also played my number 116 four times as a super straight. It hits I get 2K. Both were DAYTIME.
Bingo, the 350 hits and I have my $500 back. Great says me.
On the way home from work I play the Mega but decide that my 116 isn't going to hit. I don't play it. Yep, right on the nose. Miss out on 2K. NOT so great says me.
Now, this is where the "pay attention" comes in. This morning at work I'm doing the paperwork and the number 414 JUMPS out at me. On the way back from a job I stopped at a place I never saw before and play 414 five times straight and once as a super straight box. It hits straight I get 3K. Hits in the box at least I get $500.
For anyone reading this from Pittsburgh PA. this is a beer distributor on Rt. 51 just north of the Liberty tunnels. Little blond girl with two big dogs behind the counter. I think the store hasn't been there that long.
At 2:00 I check the computer and the number is 414. STRAIGHT. Imagine that, you feel a number and it hits, STRAIGHT. Man, I am unstoppable. I can't believe I just hit for $3000.00.
I had to drop some papers off after work to a guy that lives near that store so I figure why not stop back at the store whee I bought my winning tickets and play the NIGHT numbers. Played them and ran one of my DAYTIME 414 winners under the scanner. Just to see the "Congratulations" come up.
OMG!!!!! The little blond gave me the tickets for NIGHT, not DAY like I TOLD HER TO. Talk about SICK. To hit one ON THE NOSE for 3K and she GAVE ME THE WRONG TIME. I just stood there. When she came over to see if everything was all right with the tickets she just gave me I said fine. BUT, the ones you sold me this morning WERE FOR THE WRONG TIME.
She said, sorry. I said "you're sorry? I just lost $3000.00 because I trusted you. I'm the one that is sorry." Sorry and a dumb azz because I ALWAYS check my tickets. Thinking about getting back to work and didn't look.
My Grandkids tease me sometimes about how often I tell them to "pay attention". Man, should I practice what I preach.
CHECK THOSE TICKETS.
Oh, still haven't bought any of the PA POS scratch offs.
