When at the counter conducting my business with cash and lottery tickets, the next person behind me is too close . I was at Publix one time, and this old lady stood right next to me at the counter, you would have thought she was my mother. Please stay a minimum of 4' from me! Hit With Stick

 

When you are in line for lottery tickets, you should give the person at the counter room as you would at an ATM or a bank window.

Green laughi can see that now, tell them that you need your space.

    Having a number I've been chasing bet up, midday and evening for 3 draws, it hits on the 4th draw, and I didn't have it, and it's been out, for 10 years.

    1234 hit, 3 times this year so far, so I should have stayed with my 1233 longer.

    Tired of looking at these tickets that are winners the day before and not the day of.

    And, Ohio dropped it today midday, and I think I'm going to put it back out there since it's been gone for 10 years.

     

     

     

    Good Luck.

    The Struggle is real!

      When people say " I only play when the jackpot is $300, $400 or $500 million". I play every drawing no matter what the jackpot is. All you need is one ticket to change your life.

      I Agree! you can't win if you don't play

        lol  Those people are just as bad in the grocery line. I have always made it a rule to stand far away from people in line and one time this crazy woman accused me of standing near her. I had placed a divider on the conveyer type thing and was at least 5 ft away. She proceeded to take her arm and knock my items onto the floor. I told the clerk to call security. The clerk was in shock and could not move for a moment. I said call security now or I will report you as well. The crazy woman was then escorted from the store.

                Maybe she was falling asleep and needed someone to lean on. I've seen that a bunch of times especially when the new clerk keeps hitting the power button on the lotto machine.

                  The lady in front of me won $ 3,250 on a straight combination in Pick 4. The store owner gave her the paperwork to fill out to get her money. She refused to fill it out herself and handed it back him. She then proceeded to go into her purse and pull out her Social Security Card; Driver's License; Home Address; Phone Number; Shoe Size; etc. for the store owner to fill out the paperwork for her while the rest of us standing in line waited impatiently. (and no she wasn't an elderly lady either)

                  Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca$hhomie

                          Payout at the Store! No Way! Sorry, I guess I took it for granted that it was understood that for winnings such as that the paperwork must be submitted to the State Lottery Commission so that the State Taxation Department can send you a 1099 statement at the end of the year. 

                                                           YOU CAN RUN, BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE !

                            A lot of them used to keep forms on hand for customers who needed to mail in the claim.  I didn't think they did now that the forms are available on the internet, but I guess some people aren't online.  Sounds like the clerk was just helping fill out the forms for her customer to mail in.

                            That said, NO WAY would I give my social security number or any other private info to a convenience store clerk!  Even if the clerk is honest, I can just see the clerk getting flustered because the line is so long from spending so much time on one customer, throwing the form on the counter while checking everyone else out, and having someone in line steal the info.
