The setup is: You're running late for something important like picking up the kids or getting back to work from lunch break, yet decide to take a few seconds to grab a scratch off ticket(s) on the way and wouldn't you just know it, the bill checker jams on your bill.  The machine now says to request assistance from the store staff, which could take what will seem like forever.  How much cash trapped in the machine would you be willing to walk away from?

    When it comes to my son, no amount of money is worth leaving him stranded.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

        The amount wouldn't matter but I'd quickly notify someone at the desk what I lost in there and tell them I'd be back for my money later.

        And if there was any problem in getting that money back later, well, naturally one would have to smash the machine then.

                Now she might be right about the McNutt's down the mountain and Mulehead Jenkins' brother Luther who got his daddy's eyes lookin' every whuch a way but most folks up in here is pretty dang near normal. I'm here to testify.

                  Thats a tough question.  Something like that actually happened to me once.

                  Not with scratchoffs, but the machine gave me multi-draws when I didn't mark it.

                  I only meant to play 30 bucks but when the machine kept printing out tickets and the clerk said $96 bucks please, I was kind of upset.

                  As it happens a nasty scratchhead (no offense intended) left latex all over the place and it contaminated the machine.

                  I was late back to work, and eventually got fired.

                  I pleaded with them, and said hey, I have a good system!!!

                  And they said "I think you think you are better than everybody else."

                  I said "I am!! I know how to win the lottery!!"

                  They fired me eventually in a very weaselly type of fashion.

                  But I never taught them the secret, but I aint worried cause its just a job making onlychumpy, I mean its ,making only money.

                          There should be a way to get your money back.
